Oxidative damage is an established outcome of chronic stress. Thus, the present study was designed to investigate the modulatory role of ethanolic extract of Evolvulus alsinoides (EA) in terms of oxidative alterations at peripheral and central level in rats subjected to chronic unpredictable stress (CUS). CUS exposure for 7 days reduced Cu, Zn superoxide(More)
BACKGROUND Lean is a set of operating philosophies and methods that help create a maximum value for patients by reducing waste and waits. It emphasizes the consideration of the customer's needs, employee involvement and continuous improvement. Research on the application and implementation of lean principles in health care has been limited. METHODS This(More)
Two new phenolic glycosides (1, 2), along with fourteen known compounds (3-16) have been isolated from the fruit of Cupressus sempervirens. The structures of these compounds were determined by spectroscopic analysis and were evaluated for their inhibitory activity against glycogen phosphorylase and glucose-6-phosphatase enzymes. Compounds 14 showed a(More)
One new Euphane-type triterpenoid 3β-hydroxytirucalla-5, 24-dien-21-oic acid (1), and ten known compounds (2-11) were isolated from Melia azedarach L. through bioassay-guided chemical analysis. The structures of the isolated compounds were established by means of 1D and 2D NMR spectroscopic ((1)H, (13)C, DEPT, COSY, HSQC and HMBC) and MS spectral analyses.(More)
ETHNOPHARMACOLOGICAL RELEVANCE Mistletoe extracts (decoctions) are used traditionally in eastern Nigeria for the management of bone pain, post menopausal syndrome and diabetes amongst several other ailments. While scientific evidence supporting its folkloric use as an antidiabetic agent has been documented, the age-long practice of its use in treatment of(More)
Phytochemical investigation of Dodecadenia grandiflora leaves led to the isolation and identification of three phenolic glycosides, designated 1-[(4'-O-(E)-p-coumaroyl)-beta-D-glucopyranosyl]-oxy-2-phenol (1), 1-[(6'-O-(E)-p-coumaroyl)-beta-D-glucopyranosyl]-oxy-2-phenol (2) and 1-[O-beta-D-glucopyranosyl(1-->2)-beta-D-glucopyranosyl]-oxy-2-phenol (3),(More)
Phytochemical investigation of the ethanolic extract of twigs of Kigelia pinnata DC. afforded one new iridoid 7-hydroxy eucommiol (1), and nine known compounds (2-10). The structure of compounds was elucidated by extensive spectroscopic methods, including 1D, 2D NMR experiments and MS analysis. All these compounds were evaluated for GLUT4 translocation(More)
16-Dehydropregnenolone undergoes a smooth annulation with propan-1-amine and aromatic aldehydes. Several amine derivatives of 16- dehydropregnenolone were synthesized and evaluated as inhibitors of DPP-IV. The structures of compounds were confirmed by (1)H, (13)C, NMR and mass spectral analysis. Among 17 compounds evaluated only five compounds 1, 9, 13, 15(More)
A new class of N-substituted piperazine analogues of imbricatolic acid have been designed and synthesized by using the appropriate synthetic routes in excellent yield. All synthesised compounds were screened for their in vitro glucose uptake stimulatory activity. Among them compounds 4b, 4e, 8b, and 8e triggered L6 skeletal muscle cells for glucose uptake(More)
