Effect of volatiles from neem and other natural products on gonotrophic cycle and oviposition of Anopheles stephensi and An. culicifacies (Diptera: Culicidae).
TLDR
The gonotrophic cycle of female Anopheles was impaired by exposure to volatiles of neem, (Azadirachta indica), reetha, and garlic, but not to castor seeds and cotton seed oil, while vitellogenesis was impaired irreversably by long-term exposure to neem odor and some extracts. Expand
Spectrum of Lactobacillus species present in healthy vagina of Indian women.
TLDR
The findings showed lactobacilli species present in healthy vagina of women in India differ from those reported from other countries, which would be useful to development of probiotic tablets seeking to replenish the missing lactOBacilli. Expand
Antifertility effects of neem (Azadirachta indica) oil by single intrauterine administration:a novel method for contraception
TLDR
Intrauterine application of neem oil appears to induce a pre-implantation block in fertility; the possible mechanisms of the antifertility action are discussed. Expand
Effect of vitamin A and protein-calorie undernutrition on immune responses.
TLDR
The studies demonstrate an important influence of vitamin A and protein-calorie nutrition on lymphoid organs and on immune responses in rats rendered vitamin A-deficient and in pair-fed controls. Expand
Inhibition of the growth and development of asexual and sexual stages of drug-sensitive and resistant strains of the human malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum by Neem (Azadirachta indica)
TLDR
Neem seed fractions are active not only against the parasite stages that cause the clinical infection but also against the stages responsible for continued malaria transmission, suggesting a different mode of action. Expand
Immunocontraceptive activity guided fractionation and characterization of active constituents of neem (Azadirachta indica) seed extracts.
TLDR
An active fraction from neem seeds is proposed, responsible for long term and reversible blocking of fertility after a single intrauterine administration with high efficacy. Expand
Potential of a novel polyherbal formulation BASANT for prevention of Chlamydia trachomatis infection.
TLDR
Both assays with standard and clinical isolates showed that BASANT has antimicrobial activity against C. trachomatis, suggesting the potential clinical utility of BASANT for the prevention of C. TRACHomatis infection by the sexual route. Expand
Immunomodulatory effects of neem (Azadirachta indica) oil.
TLDR
It is indicated that neem oil acts as a non-specific immunostimulant and that it selectively activates the cell-mediated immune (CMI) mechanisms to elicit an enhanced response to subsequent mitogenic or antigenic challenge. Expand
Effect of vitamin A and undernutrition on the susceptibility of rodents to a malarial parasite Plasmodium berghei.
TLDR
In vitro experiments suggest a decrease in the capacity of the glass adhering peritoneal exudate cells in vitamin A deficient mice to clear the infection and addition of non glassAdhering cells from sensitized control mice was improved. Expand
