Title: Free Radicals and Antioxidants : A Review
Category: Pharmacology
Section: Review Article
Country: India
View Article

Oxidation is a significant biological process for energy production in the body. One of the crucial problem is the tendency of the oxygen molecule to create free radicals. These radicals are by-products of the natural metabolism, and their constant exposure can give rise to oxidative stress which causes the oxidation of proteins, lipids and nucleic acids. The release of reactive oxygen, nitrogen and sulphur species results in cellular damage, gene mutation, organ malfunctioning or organ failure and may even lead to death. This oxidative damage has a significant role in chronic diseases like cancer, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, AIDS, nephropathy,neurodegenerative and reproductive disorders, pulmonary and cardiovascular diseases etc. If our body’s supply of antioxidants fall short from the free radical generation, then its possible that it could cause damage before the radicals are quenched. This review deals with the types of free radicals, their role in various disease, antioxidants and the different constituents which show antioxidant activity.

Title: Anatomical exploration of Leucas aspera (Willd) link a medicinal herb and its pharmacognostic relavance
Category: Pharmacognosy and Herbal Drugs related study
Section: Research Article
Country: India
View Article

Leucas aspera (Willd) Link has immense medicinal value and is in use for various disorders. Present study deals with its detailed anatomical characteristics, which help easy identification of the plant. The plant exhibited typical morphological and anatomical features viz., quadrangular stem, crystals of varied shape within and on the stem, presence of stomata, lenticels and exudates on stem, blebs on stem hairs and stem, bristles on calyx, presence of caruncle on the seed which make the identification and the pharmacognostic evaluation of the plant easy.

Title: Antioxidant Profiling of Triticum aestivum (wheatgrass) and its Antiproliferative Activity In MCF-7 Breast Cancer Cell Line
Category: Pharmacology
Section: Research Article
Country: India
View Article

The present study was undertaken to put forward the scientific evidences of wheatgrass as an alternative therapy to treat cancer. The aim was to investigate the antiproliferative effects of wheatgrass extract on the selected model of breast cancer cells i.e. MCF-7 cell line and effect of extraction medium and sample preparation on total antioxidant capacity (TAC) of wheatgrass plant. Antioxidant properties of different wheatgrass extracts were studied by estimating Total Phenol Content (TPC), DPPH ((1, 1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl) and FRAP (Ferric reducing antioxidant power) Assay. Significant antiproliferative effect and cell death was observed in a dose dependent manner of wheatgrass extract on MCF-7 cells. The results indicates that TAC of the samples processed with one step procedure is more substantial as compared to two step procedure and three step procedure. The bestresults were obtained when the one -step procedure for sample preparation and 70 % ethanol (ethanolic) as an extracting agent were applied. Thus, this study provides preliminary data about the anticancer activity of wheatgrass extract and its potential to be considered as an anticancer agent.

Title: Antidiabetic activity of methonolic extract of Operculina turpethum (l.) Silva manso stem in streptozotocin induced diabetic rats
Category: Pharmacology
Section: Research Article

Diabetes mellitus (DM) consists of a group of syndromes characterized by hyperglycemia. the prevalence of both type 1 and type 2 DM is increasing worldwide, the prevalence of type 2 is rising much more rapidly because of increasing obesity and reduced activity levels as counties become more industrialized. The antidiabetic potential of the methanolic extract of Operculina turpethum stem (MEOTS) (Convolvulaceae), a medicinal plant widely used in the traditional Ayurveda and Siddha systems of medicine for the treatment of diabetes mellitus was evaluated in the Streptozotocin (STZ) - induced type 2 diabetic models. The doses of 50 mg/kg and 100 mg/kg of MEOTS were administered to normal, glucose loaded and experimental diabetic rats for 21 days. Significant (p< 0.05) reduction in fasting blood glucose levels were observed in the normal rats at 3hr as well as in the treated diabetic animals at 21 days Significant results were observed in the estimated parameters, thereby justifying the use of the plant in the indigenous system of medicine.
