Thirteen Malaysian plants; Artocarpus champeden, Azadirachta indica, Fragaria x ananassa, Garcinia mangostana, Lawsonia inermis, Mangifera indica, Nephelium lappaceum, Nephelium mutobile, Peltophorum pterocarpum, Psidium guajava and Syzygium aqueum, selected for their use in traditional medicine, were subjected to a variety of assays. Antioxidant(More)
Syzygium aqueum, a species in the Myrtaceae family, commonly called the water jambu is native to Malaysia and Indonesia. It is well documented as a medicinal plant, and various parts of the tree have been used in traditional medicine, for instance as an antibiotic. In this study, we show S. aqueum leaf extracts to have a significant composition of phenolic(More)
Ostrich oil has been used extensively in the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries. However, rancidity causes undesirable chemical changes in flavour, colour, odour and nutritional value. Bleaching is an important process in refining ostrich oil. Bleaching refers to the removal of certain minor constituents (colour pigments, free fatty acid, peroxides,(More)
The rind of rambutan, which is normally discarded was found to contain extremely high antioxidant activity when assessed using several methods. Although having a yield of only 18%, the ethanolic rambutan rind extract had a total phenolic content of 762±10mg GAE/g extract, which is comparable to that of a commercial preparation of grape seed extract.(More)
Vehicular air pollution affects both urban and town air quality all around the world. Air quality in many developing countries is deteriorating according to (WHO/UNEP 1992) report because these countries lack the resources to invest in emission control. Global air pollution problems have captured public attention, because of stratospheric ozone depletion(More)
In the course of the last 7 years we observed two cases of unequal twins, “thoracopagus parasiticus.” When a conjointed twin is unequal, the smaller member of the conjoined pair is spoken of as a parasite and the more nearly normal one as the autosite [3]. Reports about their anatomy and physiology are lacking in the literature, and therefore an attempt has(More)
Background: Peltophorum pterocarpum is a plant from the family of Leguminosae and a tropical tree found in South East Asia region. The leaves of the plant is rich in anti-oxidant polyphenols. Traditionally this plant was used to cure intestinal disorders and as a relief for sprain, bruise, muscular pain and sores and for pain during child birth. Since(More)
n order to perform highspeed digital communications we have to necessarily reduce of the pulse width and thereby increase the information rate that can be transmitted and this technique offers the potential for faster computational devices. It is expected that when the pulse width becomes shorter, our ability to accurately model the propagation of the pulse(More)
The dual duplication of stomach and pancreas is very rare in children. Interestingly, in such cases the stomach duplication is found limited only to the gastric antrum when it is associated with duplication of the pancreas. One case had clinically masqueraded as pseudo-pancreatic cyst, since the duplication cyst of the stomach had a fistulous communication(More)
