Thirty three normal male and forty two normal female subjects, of average age of 18.5 years, underwent six weeks course in 'Pranayam' and their ventilatory lung functions were studied before and after this practice. They had improved ventilatory functions in the form of lowered respiratory rate (RR), and increases in the forced vital capacity (FVC), forced(More)
OBJECTIVES Our aim was to investigate the effect of etoricoxib on the anticonvulsant activity of phenytoin and diazepam against seizure models in mice. In addition the acute adverse effect of etoricoxib was assessed with a chimney test. METHODS The maximal seizure pattern was induced in mice by giving an alternating current of 50 mA for 0.2 s, while(More)
The effect of raw garlic on serum cholesterol, fibrinolytic activity and clotting time was studied in 50 medical students of the age group of 17 to 22 years before and after feeding raw garlic. All pre-experimental values ranged within normal limits. The volunteers were then divided into experimental and control groups. The subjects of the experimental(More)
Bevacizumab is a monoclonal antibody that inhibits vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF). It is a novel chemotherapeutic agent currently approved as part of combination chemotherapy for metastatic colorectal cancer, non-small cell lung cancer, and breast cancer (Hurwitz et al 2004; Sandler et al 2006; Traina et al 2007). Arterial thrombosis, including(More)
Acorus calamus has been used for a long time in traditional medicine as a remedy for pain, convulsion, inflammation, and ulcer. In the present work, the analgesic effects of methanolic extract of Acorus calamus roots (MEAC) have been evaluated using acetic acid induced Writhing response and Rat caudal immersion method. Whereas the anticonvulsant effect were(More)
Ventilatory functions were studied in 36 male and 35 female subjects (mean age 18.5 years), who underwent six weeks course in forced breathing. Ventilatory functions were studied in the form of Forced Vital Capacity (FVC), Forced Expiratory Volume at the end of one second as % of FVC (FEV1%), Maximum Voluntary Ventilation (MVV), Peak expiratory flow rate(More)

Effect of ingestion of 50 g of glucose on euglobulin clot lysis time and prothrombin time was studied in 14 diabetic and 12 non-diabetic persons. There was no significant change in euglobulin clot lysis time and prothrombin time after ingestion of glucose in the non-diabetic group. In the diabetic group, ingestion of glucose resulted in significant increase(More)
A process for production of gluconic acid from glucose by a Micrococcus sp. is described. More than 400 bacterial cultures isolated from local soil were tested for gluconic acid production. Three isolates, were selected on basis of their ability to produce gluconic acid and high titrable acidity. These were identified as Micrococcus sp. and were named M 27,(More)
