Interleukin-2 (IL-2) promotes the generation and proliferation of killer cells in the peripheral blood and bone marrow (BM) both in vitro and in vivo. When employed in a syngeneic bone marrow transplantation (BMT) setting and followed by IL-2 therapy, murine BM cells activated with IL-2 in vitro (ABM) demonstrate potent graft-versus-leukemia (GVL) and(More)
In the present investigation, Emblica officinalis Gaerth. Syn Phyllanthus emblica linn. has been selected on account of its large scale use in manufacture of indigenous drugs. Among the various fungal, species, Aspergillus flavus was the most dominant and frequent species in most of food stuffs studied. The total population of Aspergillus. flavus was(More)
Interleukin-2 (IL-2) activation of fresh or frozen bone marrow (BM) in vitro generates killer cells with potent anti-tumor effect both in vitro and in vivo. The IL-2-activated BM (ABM) retains the capacity to reconstitute the hematopoietic system in an autologous bone marrow transplantation (ABMT) setting. The killer cells lose their cytotoxicity if the ABM(More)
The ethanolic extract of the root of Tephrosia purpurea was screened for in vitro antioxidant properties using standard procedures. The ethanolic extract exhibited IC(50) values of 132.31±8.79 and 405.22±15.09 respectively in DPPH and nitric acid radical inhibition assay. These values were slightly more than those obtained for ascorbic acid and rutin used(More)
The aqueous and ethanolic extract of leaves of Coleus aromaticus was evaluated for diuretic activity. Both extracts were evaluated by determination of urine volume and electrolyte concentration in albino rats. Results revealed that both the aqueous and ethanolic extract at dose 500mgl kg showed significant diuretic activity by increasing the total volume of(More)
