Title: Phytochemical screening and in vitro antioxidants activities of ethanolic extract of Acokanthera schimperi leaves
Category: Phytochemical Study and Pharmacological Activity
Section: Research Article
Country: India

Objective: Acokanthera schimperi belonging to the family Apocynaceae is well known in Ethiopia to treat skin diseases, tonsillitis, and snake bites for its antimicrobial, antiseptic, and anti-inflammatory properties, and it has a long history of being used as an herbal remedy. The present study was aimed to analyze the phytochemical screening and in vitro antioxidant activities of the organic leaf extracts, to find out novel antioxidants in a pharmaceutical formulation to treat oxidative stress- related diseases without side effects. Methods: Leaves of A. schimperi were subjected to successive solvent extraction using petroleum ether, chloroform, ethyl acetate, and ethanol, to obtain the respective extracts, these extracts were used for phytochemical screening using standard qualitative phytochemical methods, then ethanolic extracts were tested for antioxidant activity using various in vitro antioxidant methods such as 1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH), nitric oxide (NO), hydroxyl (OH), superoxide radical (SOR) scavenging, and reducing power activity. Results: Qualitative phytochemical analysis of leaves of A. schimperi organic extracts revealed that the maximum presence of flavonoids, terpenoids, phenolic compounds, tannins, saponins, glycosides, and phytosterol. Further in vitro, antioxidant activity of ethanolic extract from leaves of A. schimperi, among various antioxidant assays performed the maximum inhibition observed for DPPH for 80% with IC50 of 53±12μg/ml, followed by NO for 73% with IC50 53.48 μg/ml, superoxide radical for 60% with IC50 of 91.08μg/ml. Conclusion: The results of the present study demonstrated that ethanolic leaf extract of A. schimperi possess significant bioactive secondary metabolites with potential antioxidant activity, so these leaves of the plant used as a viable source of natural antioxidants for industrial and pharmaceutical preparations.

Title: Inherent immunological activity of chicken antibodies toward Anopheles punctipennis salivary gland antigens as early biomarkers for low-level infestation of malaria
Category: Pharmaceutical Biotechnology
Section: Research Article
Country: India
View Article

Introduction: Malaria is a major public health concern in most of the Asian and Sub-Saharan Africa, including Kenya, with Anopheles punctipennis, Anopheles dirus, Anopheles gambiae, Anopheles arabiensis and Anopheles funestus as the principal vectors. Flocks that receive high mosquito exposure will be most effective for surveillance purposes. However, mosquito population indices at the flock sites may only provide an indirect measure of potential exposure. Aim: In this study, we have examined the applicability for IgY obtained from the screening of different kinds of hen eggs, for its capability to interact towards a mosquito antigenic protein. Methods: The growing diffusion of monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies in immunotherapy and immuno-diagnostics and the strict standards for animal care have led to a renewed interest in the use of chickens for antibody production, as opposed to mammals. Egg yolk represents an economical source of polyclonal antibodies since the concentration of IgY is similar or higher than in the serum of chickens or rabbits or humans reaching levels ranging from 15 to 25 mg IgY per ml of yolk in the case of hyperimmunized hen. Results: Soluble proteins were separated from the lipidic fraction of egg yolk by various methods and loaded onto polyethylene glycol-column. High recovery and purity of IgY were obtained for Guinea fowl eggs by charcoal and sodium alginate methods and for Polish hen eggs by charcoal method. Conclusion: Although the difference in egg sources for the IgY is significant and shown extreme interaction towards the antigen, development of antimalarial agents represents technical challenges and immense opportunities for improvement of global health.

Title: Exploring the function in the hypothetical junction of Yersinia enterocolitica subsp. palearctica Y11 - A bioinformatics approach
Category: Pharmaceutical Biotechnology
Section: Research Article
Country: India
View Article

Aim: Yersinia enterocolitica subsp. palearctica Y11 is a bacterium known for spreading human gastroenteritis and in relation study investigated functional features in the hypothetical proteins encoded by Y. enterocolitica subsp. palearctica Y11 by conserved domain search and protein structure prediction. Materials and Methods: Five conserved domain analysis web tools used to perform the search as conserved domain database BLAST, INTERPROSCAN, Pfam, Uniprot, and CATH along with PS2 protein structure prediction server for structure modeling. Results and Conclusion: These web tools successfully predicted the function in 13 hypothetical proteins. Overall, results of Y. enterocolitica subsp. palearctica Y11 hypothetical proteins were documented for coding enzymes and other functions. Further, investigation is suggested to understand the role of these hypothetical proteins in metabolic pathway which will be useful for organism bio-controlling.

Title: Simultaneous spectrophotometric determination of azithromycin and levofloxacin from solid dosage form
Category: Pharmaceutical Analysis
Section: Research Article
Country: India
View Article

Aim: Simple, precise, and economical spectrophotometric methods have been developed for the simultaneous estimation of azithromycin (AZI) and levofloxacin (LFI) in tablet formulations. Methods: The first method is based on the use of multicomponent mode analysis, the second method is based on the absorbance ratio of the components, that is, absorbance ratio method, and the third is partial least squares calibration method. Results: The proposed methods do not require any prior chemical separation for their estimation from the dosage form. The Beer’s law range was varying from 20–100 µg/ml in Methods I and II and 2–10 µg/ml for method III for both the drugs AZI and LFI. Conclusion: All three proposed methods were successfully applied to the determination of AZI and LFI in several synthetic and real sample matrices.

Pregnancy is a unique period during a woman’s life. It is characterized by physiological and hormonal changes, which may adversely affect oral health. Oral health care during pregnancy cannot be dissociated from systemic health. It represents a comprehensive and multidisciplinary approach aiming to empower women’s wellness, then allowing people to understand the importance of caring for their oral and systemic health, from educational measures to pain control and oral disease treatment. Preventive, diagnostic, and restorative dental treatment is safe throughout pregnancy and is effective in improving and maintaining oral health. However, these patients are not medically compromised and should not be denied dental treatment because they are pregnant. This review discusses the possible dental complications of pregnancy and their management.
