Berry anthocyanidins (cyanidin, malvidin, peonidin, petunidin and delphinidin) have increasingly been explored for their anticancer effects; however, their combinatorial effects as a mixture, as present in blueberry, bilberry and Indian blackberry ('Jamun') remain untested. In this study, we demonstrate for the first time that the combination of suboptimal(More)
INTRODUCTION Berberine, a protoberberine alkaloid, and its derivatives exhibit a wide spectrum of pharmacological activities. It has been used in traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurvedic medicine and current research evidences support its use for various therapeutic areas. AREAS COVERED This review covers the patents on therapeutic activities of(More)
In the literature widely scattered Indian data on the gene frequencies of two polymorphic serum protein systems--haptoglobin (Hp) and transferrin (Tf)--have been compiled. In addition, the results of Hp and Tf typings on 111 individuals belonging to the caste groups of Brahmans (32), Rajputs (66), and Scheduled Caste (13) of Kausani of the Almora District,(More)
The pattern of fat distribution in lean and obese young Indian women was studied using seven girths and ten skinfold thicknesses. Though the lean and obese subjects differed significantly with respect to their body weight and total body fat content, body girths indicted that the proportion of fat distributed between the extremities and over the trunk region(More)
CONTEXT Eucalyptus has been a source of a number of biologically active compounds. The anti-leishmanial activity of terpenoids from Eucalyptus loxophleba (Benth.) ssp. lissophloia (Myrtaceae) has not yet been investigated. OBJECTIVE Isolation of the terpenoidal constituents for evaluation of in vitro anti-leishmanial activity against the Leishmania(More)
BACKGROUND Cardiac risk assessment for perioperative outcomes of liver transplantation patients is limited. We examined the outcomes of an older intermediate-cardiac-risk group of patients undergoing liver transplantation surgery. METHODS AND RESULTS Patients who had liver transplantation surgery between 2001 and 2005 were studied. The 3 outcomes analyzed(More)
BACKGROUND Phloroglucinol compounds, both synthetic as well as natural, have shown a vast array of biological activities. There are a wide range of applications of phloroglucinol compounds in pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, textiles, paints and dyeing industries. Although many of the phloroglucinols have shown promising results in various biological assays,(More)
