ABSTRACT
Ficus religiosawas investigated for its possible protective effect against paracetamol and CCl4-induced hepatic damage. IV administration of a sub-lethal dose of paracetamol (500 mg/kg) produced liver damage in rats as manifested by the rise in serum level of transaminases (AST and ALT). Ttreatment of rats with Ficus religiosa (200 mg/kg) prevented the paracetamol-induced rise in serum enzymes. The hepatotoxic dose of CCl4 (1.5 ml/kg; orally) also raised the serum AST and ALT levels. The same dose of Ficus religiosa (200 mg/kg) was able to prevent the CCl4-induced rise in serum enzymes. These results indicate that Ficus religiosa possesses hepatoprotective activity.

Abstract
Antibiotics are chemical substances, either produced naturally by microorganisms or manufactured synthetically, that are lethal to other microorganisms. Antibiotic resistance (AR) describes the ability of a microorganism to be unaffected by (or resistant to) the effects of a particular antibiotic. A problem arises when a animal or person becomes infected with a disease-causing bacterium that harbors antibiotic resistance to the drug that would be the most suitable treatment for that infection.

India is a vast country of immense diversity.and for that the effectiveness of the antimicrobial was not same to all ,and the administration of them will either really cure or may act in opposite manner and will leads to the development os the antimicrobial resistance which is only due to the unaware use of the antibiotics.we had conducted the survey on some prescriptions of registered medicinal practitioner and find that there was an irrational use of antibiotic in our on community and this might be very serious as our survey is on the smallest level and what it may cause globally.So the use of antibiotic should be controlled.

ABSTRACT :
The main aim for performing this project is to increase the bioavailabilty of lamotrigine as well as its onset of action to control the seizures that occur during the epileptic attack. To serve this purpose we will use mucilage of oscimum basilicum as a natural superdisintegrant & later comparing it with different novel synthetic superdisintegrant. By preparing a rapid disintegrating tablet of lamotrigine, rapid action of same can be achieved easily.
As we know that superdisintegrant plays the major role in rapid disintegration of tablet, thus it is very important to select a right or correct superdisintegrant in all respect which fulfill its purpose without effecting other parameters of tablet formulation and gives quicker and better result, when the number of formulation with different combinations of superdisintegrants (Natural & Synthetic) will be made then it would become very easy to evaluate and get the formulation with maximum desirable results.Lamotrigine being a poorly water soluble drug, needs modification to make them water soluble.
