British economist John Maynard Keynes spearheaded a revolution in economic thinking that overturned the then-prevailing(More)
Pyridyl-benzimidazole analogues 1–11 with variable substituent on phenyl ring of phenacyl moiety were synthesized and evaluated for their urease inhibitory activity. The compounds exhibited urease inhibition with IC50 between 19.22 and 77.31 µM. Compounds 4 (IC50 = 19.22 ± 0.49 µM) showed a urease inhibition comparable to thiourea (IC50 = 21.00 ± 0.01 µM)(More)
This histomorphological study is designed to evaluate the peripheral action of 2,8-Dimercapto-6-hydroxypurine (an antithyroid drug) on male reproductive system. The drug was administered as i.p. injection for 21 days to investigate its role on morphology of intratesticular cells and plasma testosterone level. Adult male rats (n=12), divided into three(More)
BACKGROUND Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is the most prevalent endocrinopathy in women of reproductive age. The study was commenced to assess the favorable effects of Rutin against metabolic, biochemical, histological, and androgenic aspects of polycystic ovary syndrome in rats. METHODS Female Sprague-Dawley rats were administered letrozole (1 mg/kg)(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Hepatic fibrosis results in defective liver regeneration following partial hepatectomy. Angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors can enhance liver regeneration and are also involved in the reduction of hepatic fibrosis. The present study has been conducted to evaluate the potential effect of an ACE inhibitor, lisinopril, on the(More)
— The model of cloud computing has been evolved as a very popular and interesting model that concentrates on the on demand services very efficiently whenever they are needed by cloud terminals. In a quite different computing style, the delivery of massively scalable resources to the end users/clients/customers is carried out 'as a service' within the cloud(More)
