Azadirachta indica is well known medicinal plant mentioned in ancient herbal texts. It has been extensively used in Ayurvedic, Unani and Homoeopathic medicine and has become a luminary of modern medicine. As part of our drug discovery program we isolated azadiradione from the ethanolic extract of seeds of A. indica and evaluated for in-vivo antiulcer(More)
Gastroprotective mechanism of peganine hydrochloride isolated from Peganum harmala seeds was investigated. Peganine hydrochloride was evaluated against cold restraint (CRU), aspirin (AS), alcohol (AL) and pyloric ligation (PL) induced gastric ulcer models in rats. Potential anti-ulcer activity of peganine was observed against CRU (50.0%), AS (58.5%), AL(More)
Dopamine is linked to gastrointestinal functions. However, its exact nature in stress-induced gastric pathology is still not clear. In the present study, an attempt has been made to identify the effects of dopamine in stress-induced gastric ulcers, and concurrent alterations in various ulcer-influencing factors such as plasma corticosterone levels, gastric(More)
Nyctanthes arbortristis Linn (Oleaceae) is widely distributed in sub-Himalayan regions and southwards to Godavari, India commonly known as Harsingar and Night Jasmine. In continuation of our drug discovery program on Indian medicinal plants, we isolated arbortristoside-A (AT) and 7-O-trans-cinnamoyl-6β-hydroxyloganin (6-HL) from the seeds of N.(More)
The present study revisited the three-dimensional (3D) homology model of CCK-2R using human A(2a) adenosine receptor and the resolved NMR based structure of the third extracellular loop of the CCK-2R as templates. Further in order to identify novel antiulcer agents, rational designing have been performed utilizing the substructure of a well-known CCK-2R(More)
BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVE Hedranthera barteri (HB) is used in folk medicine as a vermifuge, laxative and an anti-inflammatory agent. The aim of this study was to evaluate the anti-ulcer and antioxidant properties of the dichloromethane fraction of HB root (DMHBR). METHODS Anti-ulcerogenic activity was assessed in cold-restraint (CRU), aspirin (ASP), alcohol(More)
The in vitro antimicrobial activity of serial petroleum ether, chloroform and methanol extracts from leaves of Aegle mawmelos were investigated against bacterial and fungal species. All the extracts exhibited broad spectrum antimicrobial activity with zones of inhibition ranging from 10 to 22 mm against bacteria: Staphylococcus aureus, beta Streptococcus(More)
In continuation of our drug discovery program on Indian medicinal plants, the gastro protective mechanism of chebulinic acid isolated from Terminalia chebula fruit was investigated. Chebulinic acid was evaluated against cold restraint (CRU), aspirin (AS), alcohol (AL) and pyloric ligation (PL) induced gastric ulcer models in rats. Potential anti-ulcer(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS The outcome of Hepatitis during pregnancy has been observed to be widely different by various authors, ranging from the benign to fatal. A poor outcome has increasingly been observed in pregnant women suffering from Hepatitis in Central India. Hence, this study was undertaken to study the incidence, causative organisms and chief(More)
Antiulcer activity of novel quinoline-chalcone hybrids (13-37) was investigated. Among them, eight compounds (14, 16, 17, 23, 29, 31, 32 and 35) were found to be active in various ulcer models in Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats. To understand the mechanism of action of these hybrids, the effects of the compounds on antisecretory and cytoprotective activities were(More)
