The pharmacokinetics of tobramycin were determined in six healthy camels (Camelus dromedarius) following the intravenous (i.v.) and intramuscular (i.m.) administration of single doses of tobramycin sulphate (40 mg/ml). The half-life to tobramycin was 189 +/- 21 min and the mean residence time was 254 +/- 26 min. The apparent volume of distribution (area(More)
Diabetes mellitus is one of the most common endocrine diseases. In UAE many traditional plants such as the Citrullus colocynthis (Handal) are used as antidiabetic remedies.

The effect of R. stricta water extract on glucose homeostasis was studied in normal and streptozotocin diabetic rats. R. stricta had no effect on fasting glucose levels in normal and diabetic rats up to 7 h after its oral administration. In normal and diabetic rats R. stricta did not produce any significant effect on an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT).(More)
