The gonotrophic cycle of female Anopheles was impaired by exposure to volatiles of neem, (Azadirachta indica), reetha, (Sapindus mukorossi), and garlic, (Allium sativum), but not to castor seeds and cotton seed oil. A brief exposure to contact or volatile extracts from neem suppressed rather than inhibited oviposition. Complete inhibition of oviposition was(More)
The influence of age, sex and nutritional status on theophylline pharmacokinetics was studied in stable asthmatic children. Theophylline was given at a dose of 6 mg/kg orally on an empty stomach and the pharmacokinetic parameters were calculated from the estimated plasma concentration of theophylline. No significant difference in the elimination half-life(More)
OBJECTIVES We conducted this study to compare the safety and efficacy of transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) and holmium laser prostatectomy. METHODS A total of 30 patients eligible for surgery for symptomatic benign prostatic hyperplasia were included in the study. They were randomized into two groups of 15 each. The patients were evaluated at(More)
Effects of oral administration of l-thyroxine (T4) on growth performance, body composition, and some aspects of nutritional physiology were investigated in two slow-growing air-breathing fish (Channa punctatus and Heteropneustes fossilis) under laboratory conditions (LD 12:12 at 25°C). The results indicate that irrespective of the species, fish fed diets(More)

Alginate microparticles were developed as oral sustained delivery carriers for antitubercular drugs in order to improve patient compliance. In the present study, pharmacokinetics and therapeutic effects of alginate microparticle encapsulated antitubercular drugs, i.e. isoniazid, rifampicin and pyrazinamide were examined in guinea pigs. Alginate(More)
A novel approach for immunocontraception by intervention of local cell mediated immunity in the reproductive system by using single intrauterine application of neem oil has been described earlier. The reversible block in fertility was reported to last for 107-180 days in female Wistar rats (Upadhyay et al., 1990. Antifertility effects of neem oil by single(More)
