Considerable amount of research has been carried out in the field of pyrazolone derivatives due to their diverse biological, pharmacological and chemical properties. The need was felt to synthesize certain 3-methyl-5-pyrazolone derivatives with potent analgesic and anti-inflammatory activity and with lesser side effects as it had been proved of late that(More)
Gastro-intestinal (GI) toxicity is the common adverse effect which has been associated with most of NSAIDs available in the market. So the search for new therapeutic agents with high margin of safety and freedom from normally associated GI toxic effects has been a priority of pharmacologists and pharmaceutical industries. There are virtually limitless(More)
The polyphenolic compound curcumin has been reported for its antimalarial properties in various scientific studies. Plasmodium falciparum ATP6, the parasite orthologue of mammalian sarcoplasmic Ca2+ ATPase (SERCA) has been identified as a key molecular target of both artemisinin and curcumin. The work was thereby undertaken to study the anti-malarial(More)
To reduce the dependency on fresh AB+ serum in continuous culture of Plasmodium falciparum, a comparative study was undertaken to assess the in vitro adaptability of P. falciparum to media supplemented with fresh AB+ serum from whole blood, AB+ plasma, serum derived from AB+ plasma, AB+ human serum from Sigma, Albumax II, fetal bovine serum and new born(More)
Mosquitoes are the vectors of several life threatening diseases like dengue, malaria, Japanese encephalitis and lymphatic filariasis, which are widely present in the north-eastern states of India. Investigations on five local plants of north-east India, selected on the basis of their use by indigenous communities as fish poison, were carried out to study(More)
Malaria is a major public health problem in north-east India mainly transmitted by Anopheles baimai and An. minimus while Anopheles nivipes plays an important supportive role. The genetic diversity of An. nivipes in north-east India was investigated by employing two mitochondrial DNA markers namely NADH dehydrogenase 5 (ND5) and cytochrome oxidase sub unit(More)
BACKGROUND Hormone based birth control often causes various side effects. A recent study revealed that temporary infertility without changing hormone levels can be attained by inhibiting Katanin p60 ATPase-containing subunit A-like 1 protein (KATNAL1) which is critical for sperm maturation in the testes. OBJECTIVE This study aimed at attaining the most(More)
