Objective: To evaluate anti-inflammatory effect of Capparis aphylla Roth. (CA) using experimental animal models. Material and method: Female Wistar rats (200 to 250gm) were randomly allocated to six groups (n=6). Except group-I (normal control), arthritis was induced in animals of all groups by injection of 0.2 ml Complete Freund’s Adjuvant (6mg/ml) on day one. Additionally Group III (Std) and Group IV–VI (CA-1, CA-2 and CA-3) received Indomethacin (100mg/kg), CA (300 mg/kg ; 240 mg/kg and 190 mg/kg) from day 1 to day 21 orally. Paw volumes of both sides (measured by plethysmography) was recorded on day 0, 7, 14, 21. On 7th, 14th, 21stdays the severity of the secondary lesions was evaluated by measuring body weight, arthritic index, Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate(ESR), Rheumatoid factor(RF), C- Reactive Protein(CRP), Albumin/Globulin(A/G) ratio, X-ray, histopathology of synovial joints. Result: Capparis Aphylla Roth. significantly prevented the freund’s adjuvant induced changes in body weight, serum A/G ratio , arthritic Index, paw edema, ESR, RF, CRP. the results were comparable with the standard drug indomethacin. Conclusion: Antiinflammatory activity of Capparis aphylla Roth. can beattributed to COX-II inhibition leading to decrease in inflammatory mediator.

Now-a-days many people of the world are suffering from anxiety, stress and depression. They experience feelings of anxiety before an important event such as exam, business deal or first date. Anxiety disorders however are illness that fills people’s lives with unreal & imaginary fear that are chronic, unremitting and can grow progressively worse. By now, most of us know that anxiety is quite a common complaint and many people have tried some of the various medications used for anxiety. But many don’t know that there are a variety of herbs available used to treat anxiety in natural way. This article includes, “What is Anxiety?” Herbs used to cure Anxiety, depression, and Stress”, and “Natural Self-Healing”.

Cryopreservation and lyophilization of plant germplasm has obvious advantages over in vitro storage in term of space saving and improved phytosanitation. We compared cryopreserved and lyophilized leaf as sources for genomic DNA isolation by CTAB protocol and PVP protocol.Our results showed that cryopreservation of leaf tissue yielded high molecular weight genomic DNA. The DNA was suitable for restriction-enzyme digestion and as a template for polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification. While these results rule out cryopreserved tissue as a source for DNA isolation, the ability to freeze-dry, powder, and efficiently store voluminous tissue samples for later use in DNA and protein isolation could be of great benefit to laboratories involved in molecular genetics and molecular biology.

The aim of the current investigation is to design oral once daily modified release dosage forms of amoxicillin trihydrate for treatment of pharyngitis/tonsilitis, which release the drug for 24 hours and match with theoretical drug release profile. The tablets and capsules were prepared by the different method using different polymers in different concentrations. The interference of the polymers was ruled out by FT-IR spectroscopy studies. The powder-blends of tablets and drug were evaluated for their physical properties like angle of repose, bulk density, compressibility index, and Hausner ratio and found to be satisfactory. The manufactured tablets were evaluated for in process and finished product quality control tests including appearance, thickness, weight variation, hardness, friability, drug content, and in vitro drug release. All formulations showed appearance, thickness, weight variation, hardness, friability and drug content in specified limit. All formulations showed acceptable pharmacotechnical properties and complied with in-house specifications for tested parameters. The results of dissolution studies indicated that formulation containing 50% ethyl cellulose and 50% methocel was the most successful formulation which was evidenced by similarity (f2) and dissimilarity (f1) factors. The formulated amoxicillin trihydrate tablets followed zero order release kinetics and Higuchi diffusion was the dominant mechanism of drug release, resulting in regulated and complete release within 24 hours. Formulations were subjected to short term stability studies as per ICH guidelines and were found stable. Capsule formulations 16 were evaluated for weight uniformity, drug content and in vitro drug release. The results of dissolution studies indicated that drug release from capsule not extend up to 24hrs. All formulations of capsule failed in in-vitro drug release test. In comparison of tablet and capsule formulations, tablet found to be successful dosage form.

A simple, precise, rapid, selective, and economic high-performance-thin-layer chromatography (HPTLC) method has been established for simultaneous analysis of Domperidone (DMP), Paracetamol (PCM) and Tramadol Hcl (TMD) in tablet dosage forms. The chromatographic separations were performed on precoated silica gel 60254 plates with toluene-ethylacetate-butanol-ammonia 5:4:1:0.2(v/v) as mobile phase. The plates were developed in a 7.0 cm at ambient temperature. The developed plates were scanned and quantified at their single wavelength of maximum absorption at approximately 278 nm for DMP and PCM, respectively. Experimental conditions such as chamber size, chamber saturation time, migration of solvent front, slit width, etc. were critically studied and the optimum conditions were selected. The drugs were satisfactorily resolved with Rf 0.18 ± 0.02 for DMP, Rf 0.25 ± 0.02 for PCM and for TMD Rf 0.50 ± 0.02. The method was validated for linearity, accuracy, precision, and specificity. The calibration plot was linear between 100-600 ng / band for DMP, 3250-19500 ng / band based for PCM and 375-2250 ng / band based for TMD. The limits of detection and quantification for DMP were 9.95 and 30.16ng / band, respectively; for PCM they were 64.30 ng and 194.87 ng / band and for TMD 5.51 and 16.70/ band. This HPTLC procedure is economic, sensitive, and less time consuming than other chromatographic procedures. It is a user-friendly and importance tool for analysis of combined tablet dosage forms.

As part of ongoing studies in developing new antimicrobials, a novel series of 4-acetamido-N-(substituted 1, 3-benzothiazol-2-yl) benzenesulphonamide and N-(substituted 1, 3-benzothiazol-2-yl)-4-(substituted aryl diazenyl) benzenesulphonamide were synthesized in order to determine their antibacterial and antifungal activity. The synthesized compounds were tested in vitro against two Gram-positive bacteria like Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus subtilis; two Gram-negative bacteria like Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosaand one fungal strain Candida albicans in comparison with standard drugs. Microbiological results showed that the synthesized compounds possessed a broad spectrum of antibacterial and antifungal activity against the tested microorganisms. The compounds with a 6-chloro (SK5b), 7-chloro-6-fluoro(SK5d) and 6-nitro (SK5e) on 2-amino benzothiazole ring possessing azo linkage showed better antimicrobial activity; almost similar or less to that of standard drugs thus they could be promising candidates for novel drugs. The novel heterocyclic derivatives were characterized by Physical characterization (Melting point, TLC) and different Spectroscopy techniques (IR, 1H NMR and Mass spectroscopy).
