BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Controversial reports are available regarding the effect of magnesium (Mg) on lipid profile and glycaemic control in diabetic patients. The present study was designed on 1) compare serum Mg levels in diabetic patients with those of non-diabetic controls and 2) to assess the effect of oral Mg supplementation on lipid profile and(More)
Electrocardiograms of normal rats were studied and compared with those of the rats receiving parenteral IPT. The rat E.C.G. resembles essentially human E.C.G. IPT administration brought about E.C.G. changes suggesting myocardial infarction. Appearance of Q wave in aVL was a consistent feature of E.C.G. after 24 hr of IPT injection. With additional doses of(More)
Irrational prescribing is a global phenomenon. The objective of the study was to find out the prescribing practices of dental prescribers in a tertiary care teaching hospital with special emphasis on the utilization of antimicrobial agents. A prospective study was conducted in the month of March 2000. A total of 491 prescriptions were collected randomly.(More)
Alcohol produces contraction of isolated frog rectus abdominis muscle in a dose dependent manner. In the present study interactions of pancuronium, gallamine and succinylcholine with ethanol have been studied. Pancuronium and gallamine behaved in a non-competitive manner with ethanol. The PD'2 values of pancuronium and gallamine were almost similar.(More)
The effect of altered fore limb alignment to trunk on mean electrical axis (MEA) and on amplitude of the QRS complex of frontal plane leads was studied in both prone and supine postures in 32 albino rats. It was found that in both postures bilateral extension of fore limbs caused a significant change in MEA to right. Unilateral change in the fore limb(More)
Ethanol produces alterations in muscular contraction and neuromuscular function both in vitro and in vivo in mammalian and amphibian tissues in dose dependent manner. It is not very well known whether gallamine, a commonly used muscle relaxant produces any interaction with ethanol. Hence in the present study, interactions of ethanol with gallamine are(More)
Effect of ondansetron (5-HT3-receptor antagonist) was studied on the working memory deficits induced by scopolamine, a muscarinic receptor antagonist in rats using a three-panel runway apparatus. Varying doses of scopolamine (0.1-0.56mg/kg, ip) were administered alone or in combination with ondansetron (0.01-1.0 mg/kg, ip) and memory errors and latency(More)
210 prescriptions selected by students from Sucheta Kriplani and R.M.L. Hospitals were subjected to audit prescription in a group discussion with faculty members in the Department of Pharmacology of Lady Hardinge Medical College, New Delhi. It was observed that inadequate treatment was prescribed to the patients suffering from common diseases like(More)
