We have investigated the effect of methanolic extract of Rhus coriaria (RC) on hyperinsulinemia, glucose intolerance and insulin sensitivity in non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) rats. NIDDM was induced by single intraperitoneal injection of streptozotocin (STZ, 100 mg/kg) to 2 days old rat pups. RC (200 mg/kg and 400 mg/kg) was administered(More)
Phytochemical investigation of the aerial parts of Callistemon lanceolatus DC (Myrtaceae) led to the isolation of two new flavones characterized as 5,7-dihydroxy-6,8-dimethyl- 4' -methoxy flavone (1) and 8-(2-hydroxypropan-2-yl)-5-hydroxy-7-methoxy-6-methyl-4'-methoxy flavone (2) along with the seven known phytoconstituents. The structures of new compounds(More)
The physical and chemical degradation of drugs may result in altered therapeutic efficacy and even toxic effects. Therefore, the objective of this work was to study the stability of clobetasol propionate (CP) in a nanoemulsion. The nanoemulsion formulation containing CP was prepared by the spontaneous emulsification method. For the formulation of the(More)
Two new oleanane-type triterpene glycosides designated as Termiarjunoside I and Termiarjunoside II were isolated from stem bark of Terminalia arjuna (Combretaceae) and characterized as olean-1alpha,3beta,9alpha,22alpha-tetraol-12-en-28-oic acid-3beta-D-glucopyranoside (1) and olean-3alpha,5alpha,25-triol-12-en-23,28-dioic acid-3alpha-D-glucopyranoside (2)(More)
Two new triterpenoids characterised as 30-normethyl fernen-22-one (capillirone, 1) and hopan-3β-ol (capillirol B, 2), along with two known triterpenoids, 4-α-hydroxyfilican-3-one and 3-β,4-α-dihydroxyfilicane, have been isolated from the ethanolic extract of the fronds of Adiantum capillus-veneris Linn. (Adiantaceae). Compounds 1 and 3 showed significant(More)
In the present paper is an investigation of heat and mass transfer characteristics of MHD free convection of steady flow of an incompressible electrically conducting fluid over an inclined plate under the influence of an applied uniform magnetic field and the effects of Hall current are taken into account. Using suitable similarity transformations the(More)
Chemical studies on the seeds of Zanthoxylum alatum Roxb. (Rutaceae) led to the isolation of two new phenolic constituents characterized as 3-methoxy-11-hydroxy-6,8-dimethylcarboxylate biphenyl (3) and 3,5,6,7-tetrahydroxy-3',4'-dimethoxyflavone-5-beta-D-xylopyranoside (6), along with the five known compounds, 1-methoxy-1,6,3-anthraquinone,(More)
Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH)is the most common condition in aging men, associated with lower urinary tract symptoms. It is caused due to the augmented levels of the androgen dihydrotestosterone. Dutasteride, a 5α-Reductase inhibitor has been recommended for the treatment of BPH upon oral administration. However, long term oral administration of(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the potential of nanoemulsion formulation for topical delivery of Clobetasol propionate (CP) using algal oil (containing omega-3 fatty acids) as the oil phase. CP has anti-inflammatory, immunomodulatory and antiproliferative activities. However, its clinical use is restricted to some extent due to its poor(More)
Silver nanoparticle (AgNP) has been synthesized using adrenaline. Adrenaline readily undergoes an autoxidation reaction in an alkaline medium with the dissolved oxygen to form adrenochrome, thus behaving as a mild reducing agent for the dissolved oxygen. This reducing behavior of adrenaline when employed to reduce Ag(+) ions yielded a large enhancement in(More)
