Larvicidal activity of some Euphorbiaceae plant extracts against Aedes aegypti and Culex quinquefasciatus (Diptera: Culicidae)
It is suggested that E. tirucalli can be applied as an ideal potential larvicide against A. aegypti and C. quinquefasciatus, and an ideal ecofriendly approach for the control of the dengue vector. Expand
Disordered eating, menstrual irregularity, and bone mineral density in female runners.
Examination of the relationships between disordered eating, menstrual irregularity, and low bone mineral density (BMD) in young competitive female distance runners concluded that disorderedeating is strongly related to menstrual irregularness, menstruation irregularity is associated with low BMD, and disordered Eating is associatedwith low B MD in the absence of menstrual irregularities.

Isolation and identification of mosquito larvicidal compound from Abutilon indicum (Linn.) Sweet
Results of this study show that the petroleum ether extract of A. indicum may be considered as a potent source and β-sitosterol as a new natural mosquito larvicidal agent. Expand
Mosquito larvicidal activity of oleic and linoleic acids isolated from Citrullus colocynthis (Linn.) Schrad
In the present study, bioassay-guided fractionation of petroleum ether extract led to the separation and identification of fatty acids; oleic acid and linoleic acid were isolated and identified as mosquito larvicidal compounds. Expand
Evaluation of the antifungal activity of natural xanthones from Garcinia mangostana and their synthetic derivatives.
The antifungal activity of several xanthones isolated from the fruit hulls of Garcinia mangostana and some derivatives of mangostin against three phytopathogenic fungi, Fusarium oxysporumExpand
Mosquito larvicidal activity of gluanol acetate, a tetracyclic triterpenes derived from Ficus racemosa Linn
The larvicidal activity of crude hexane, ethyl acetate, petroleum ether, acetone, and methanol extracts of the leaf and bark of Ficus racemosa was assayed for their toxicity against the early fourth-instar larvae of Culex quinquefasciatus and gluanol acetate was isolated and identified as new mosquito larvicides.

Identification of antifungal compounds from the seed oil ofAzadirachta Indica
Tests of the triterpenoidal mixture derived from the 90% methanol extract of neem oil against 13 phytopathogenic fungi revealed that various species were inhibited to different degrees, indicating possible additive/synergistic effects. Expand
Insect antifeedant and growth-regulating activities of Salannin and other c-seco limonoids from neem oil in relation to Azadirachtin
The role of salannin and other compounds in conferring bioactivity, along with azadirachtin-A, to neem oil/neem seed extracts is emphasized. Expand
Alendronate with calcium and vitamin D supplementation is safe and effective for the treatment of decreased bone mineral density in HIV
Once-weekly alendronate is safe and effective in the treatment of decreased BMD in HIV-infected patients and there were trends towards significant increases in BMD values in the calcium/vitamin D group at the lumbar spine, total hip, and femoral neck. Expand
Anti-ulcer activity of crude alcoholic extract of Toona ciliata Roemer (heart wood).
The ethanol extract of Toona ciliata Roemer was evaluated for its anti-ulcer activity against aspirin plus pylorous ligation induced gastric ulcer, HCl-ethanol induced ulcer and water immersion stress induced ulcers in rats to markedly decrease the incidence of ulcers. Expand
