Epidemiological studies have demonstrated that diabetes mellitus is a serious health burden for both governments and healthcare providers. This study was hypothesized to evaluate the antihyperglycemic potential of eugenol by determine the activities of key enzymes of glucose metabolism in streptozotocin (STZ)-induced diabetic rats. Diabetes was induced into(More)
BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVES The leaves of Cleistanthus collinus, an extremely poisonous plant are consumed for suicidal purposes in various parts of India. The mortality rate is high and there is no antidote. In this study, we attempted to delineate oxidative stress as a possible mechanism of action of C. collinus toxicity in rats and the role of melatonin(More)
Aqueous extract of C. collinus leaves inhibited norepinephrine induced contraction in guinea pig vas deferens and aortic strip in a dose-dependent manner. Inhibition of acetylcholine induced contraction in ileum was dose independent. C. collinus extract per se had no effect on isolated guinea pig vas deferens and aortic strip, but inhibited norepinephrine(More)
An emerging aspect in learning environment is to effectively retrieve learning materials from learning object repositories. An extension of the IEEE LOM standard with a domain ontology and automatic annotation for effective retrieval of learning objects is proposed. To make best use of learning objects outside the Learning Management System, we associate(More)
Learning Objects (LO) have been used for designing e-learning paradigms. Granularity of learning objects is related with the concept of reusability. The reused learning objects are henceforth used for effective personalization .Personalization based on the learner's intuitiveness is preferred using preference based and correlation based algorithms. Based on(More)
Diabetes is a metabolic disease with high prevalence worldwide. Exogenous insulin is used in the management of this condition. The development of human insulin has provided tighter control of glycaemia in diabetic patients. Insulin analogues like insulin lispro and aspart were developed to closely match its profile with physiological secretion. The newer(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effect of Edrophonium on blood glucose levels in euglycemic albino rats through OGTT. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twelve Swiss albino rats weighing around 150-200 gms of either sex were randomly selected from the central animal facility, JSSMC, Mysore and divided into two groups. The control group received distilled water (25ml/kg body(More)
The aim was to evaluate the analgesic activity of perindopril in chemical, thermal and mechanical pain on Swiss albino mice. A total of 54 albino mice (Swiss strain) weighing 25-30 g were allocated to each experimental model and in each model there were three groups. The control group received normal saline (25 ml/kg) per orally, standard group received(More)
