Curcumin is the lipid-soluble antioxidant compound obtained from the rhizome of Curcuma longa Linn, also known as turmeric. Curcumin targets multiple chemotherapeutic and inflammatory pathways and has demonstrated safety and tolerability in humans, supporting its potential as a therapeutic agent; however, the clinical literature lacks conclusive evidence(More)
The pharmacokinetics and the mechanism of action of the antihyperlipaemic compound 2-chloromethyl-5,6,7,8-tetrahydrobenzo(b)thieno[2,3-d]pyrimidin-4(3H)-on e (CAS 89587-03-3, LM-1554) have been studied. Serum concentrations were determined by reverse phase HPLC using methanol : water (60 : 40) as the solvent system. The results of pharmacokinetic studies(More)
Punica granatum L. (Lythraceae) inhibits cancer cell proliferation and apoptosis through the modulation of cellular transcription factors and signaling proteins. No pharmacological work is reported on the effects of P. granatum juice on the cellular signaling pathways involved in initiation and progression of inflammation. The present investigation(More)
OBJECTIVE Aqueous root extract of Oroxylum indicum was evaluated in rats against dinitrobenzene sulfonic acid (DNBS) induced colitis. MATERIALS AND METHODS Rats were pre-treated orally for seven days and continued for four days after the induction of colitis with OI(aq) (100, 200, and 400 mg/kg) or vehicle. Colitis was induced by intracolonic instillation(More)
The nuclear receptor liver X receptor [LXR] is activated by endogenous oxidized derivatives of cholesterol. It constitutes a critical receptor in the regulation of various physiological functions related to the development of metabolic and cardiovascular diseases, such as atherosclerosis and diabetes, as well as various other disorders. Both isoforms of(More)
BACKGROUND Combination with suitable pharmacological agents can improve the antiobesity and antidiabetic actions of glucagon like peptide-1 (GLP-1) based therapies. GLP-1 agonist exendin-4 may have insulin-independent effects on amelioration of insulin resistance and hepatic steatosis by virtue of its action on hepatic GLP-1 receptors, and these effects can(More)
BACKGROUND In addition to its glucoregulatory actions, exendin-4, a stable glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonist, exhibits protective effects in the pancreas and anti-obesity effects. Suitable combination treatment with other anti-obesity or pancreas protective agents would be an effective approach to optimize these additional effects. In the present(More)
The present investigation was undertaken to evaluate the bronchodilator and bronchial hyperreactivity of the stem bark of Myrica sapida. Experimental models studied were histamine induced bronchospasm in guinea pigs, bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF) in egg albumin sensitized guinea pigs, histamine release from the lung tissues of sensitized guinea pigs(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of burn management and therapy is fast healing and epithelisation to prevent infection. The present study is concerned with the development and characterization of a novel nanaoparticulate system; cubosomes, loaded with silver sulfadiazine (SSD) and Aloe vera for topical treatment of infected burns. METHODS Cubosome dispersions were(More)
A new Hydrogel containing silver Sulfadiazine (SSD) was developed for enhanced burns wound healing. The hydrogel was prepared by cross-linking of PVA and Chitosan by freeze thawing method. Their gel properties, moisture retaining capacity, fluid uptake capacity, in vitro release study, in vivo burn healing effect were evaluated. Chitosan and PVA cross(More)
