The present paper deals with investigations on the effect of gamma irradiation on the natural antioxidants of Justicia adhatoda. For this purpose sample was irradiated in Co-60 irradiator (gamma chamber 900) at dose of 1, 2, 3, 5 and 10 kGy at ambient temperature. The effect of radiation on the methanol extract was investigated by different assays. In case of DPPH assay, at the dose of 5 kGy, the samples showed good scavenging activity (31.41%). Similarly in case of reducing power and FRAP…

Study of chronic effects of varying dosage of x-rays on hepatotoxicity in wistar albino rats

The hypothesis of the involvement of free radicals in radiation-induced damage to living systems supports the hypothesis that free radicals contribute to chronic effects of radiation in the liver of albino Wistar rats subjected to irradiation using X-rays.

Pharmacological studies of Adhatoda vasica and Calotropis procera as resource of bio-active compounds for various diseases.

The results showed that the leaf and flower extracts of Adhatoda vasica and leaf extract of Calotropis procera contained higher contents of bioactive compounds, which may lead to the conclusion that these herbal plants have the potential for formation of new drugs and can be used as herbal medicine for treatment of different cancer and viral diseases.

Influence of Gamma Irradiation Treatment on Storage Quality , Antioxidant Composition and Nutraceutical Potential of Onion Sprouts
