Hepatoprotective Activity of Tradescantia spathacea, Extract against Paracetamol Induced Hepatic Damage in Rats

by S. Shaheen Sultana, S. Tasqeeruddin, Yahya I. Asiri, N.S. Murali Krishna, S. Nishath Sultana,
Abstract : Tradescantia spathacea Swartz (family: Commelinaceae) was medicinally used in the Southeastern of Mexico and India, for its hepatitis, cancer and diabetes curative efficacy. No longitudinal research on protective effect has been carried out T. Spathacea is used for treating liver diseases. So, the present study focused on the Hepatoprotective Activity of Methanolic extract of Tradescantia spathacea (METS) against Paracetamol Induced Hepatic Damage in Rats. Five rat groups(n=6) were used and administered once daily by vehicle (saline), control (vehicle + PCM 1 ml / kg, p.o), 100 mg / kg silymarin (positive control), METS (250 and 500 mg / kg p.o.) for 9 days, accompanied by paracetamol (PCM) hepatotoxicity induction. Blood samples and livers were collected and analysed biochemically and microscopically. METS at a dose level of 250mg / kg p.o. and 500mg / kg p.o. significantly induced (p<0.05) hepatoprotection by decreasing serum levels of Aspartate amino transferase (AST), Alanine amino transferase (ALT), Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP), and Total Serum Bilirubin (SB) but significantly increased dose-dependent levels of glutathione (GSH). METS results were comparable with that typical medication, silymarin. Histopathological results supported METP's beneficial function against Paracetamol (PCM)-induced liver damage in rats. METS at a dose level of 250 and 500mg / kg showed significant hepatoprotective activity.

Study of Jordanian Porcelanite and Its Adsorption behavior on 3, 5-Dimethyle Phenol from Aqueous Solution

by Jumana K. Abu-Hawwas, Jumana K. Abu-Hawwas, Jumana K. Abu-Hawwas,
Abstract : The adsorption of 3,5-Dimethyl phenol from aqueous solution by Jordanian porcelanite rock has been investigated as a function of initial concentration, adsorbent dose, contact time at constant temperature and pH of solution. Porcelanite get removal efficiency equal to 99.71% at about 1 hour of contact time, with 20 g of porcelanite and about 50 ppm concentrations of 3,5- Dimethyl phenol in organic solutions which was indicated by Total Organic Carbon and UV absorption spectroscopy technique. The physical and chemical characterization, were done using X- Ray Fluorescence, X-Ray Diffraction, Scanning Electron Microscope, Thermogravimetric analysis and Specific Surface Area. The porcelanite rock represents a low cost alternative natural material adsorbent, used as a filter and for the removal of toxic inorganic and organic materials from aqueous solutions

Screening and Determining of Vanillic Acid Productive Fungi Isolate

by Suhad Khalid Al-Moola, Aswan H. Al-Bayyar,
Abstract : This study aims to identify the fungal genus that produces Vanillic Acid (VA). Ten local fungal isolates were tested and screened for vanillic acid production. The isolates were collected from different sources like soil, fruits in Iraq, Baghdad. Some parameters were adopted in the culturing media of production. The culture media contained 20g/l glucose, 2.5 g/l ammonium sulfate, 0.5g/l yeast extract, 0.2g/l KH2PO4, 0.0132g/l CaCl2.2H2O, 0.5g/l MgSO4.7H2O with 1.5 g/l pomegranate peels powder as a substrate, pH5, 30° C, 1×106 cfu/ml, 150 rpm, and 7 days of incubation. The isolate (4) gave the highest production (14.9 mg/ml) under these conditions. The isolate was morphologically and genetically determined to be Aspergillus terreus MD 10-3(0). The fungus Aspergillus terreus is a productive genus for Vanillic acid in bioconversion process by using dried pomegranate peels.

Assessment of Pharmacy Students’ Knowledge and Attitude towards Environmental Education and Impact of Environmental Change on Health

by Neha P, Anirudh D, Ramyashri, Ligade VS,
Abstract : Every academic subject play important role in respective field. Due to global warming, importance of environmental science subject has gained significant attention in all field including pharmacy. Objective: The present study made an attempt to assess pharmacy student knowledge and attitude towards environmental education and impact of environmental change on health. Methods: This study was a cross-sectional classroom survey among D Pharm, B Pharm, M Pharm and Pharm D students. The survey tool was distributed to 514 students in pharmacy college in Manipal, Karnataka, India. A brief introduction of study objective was provided to students and were instructed to respond independently. Results: Of all the respondents (n=514) 51% of respondents are of opinion that environmental science is one of the important subject at school/college level. 82% of the respondents felt that deforestation is major factor for environmental damage or climate change. 78% of respondents opined that, it is responsibility of every individual to protect environment. According to 70.4% of respondents change in environmental climate have affected human health. Conclusion: The study results revealed that the participating pharmacy students were aware of environmental issues. Students had positive attitude towards environmental science education and are concern about impact of environmental change on health

Portrayal and DFT investigations of cis, trans and vinyl subsidiaries of 1,4-butadiene utilizing C20 in various temperatures

by Josef. Soetora, Anka Estelle,
Abstract : In this examination of cis, trans and vinyl monomeric subsidiaries of 1,4-butadiene were considered utilizing C20 in various temperatures by the Functional thickness hypothesis (DFT). For this reason, the materials were initially improved geometrically, at that point the figurings of the thermodynamic parameters were performed on every one of them. In the accompanying, changes in parameters of vitality, for example, explicit warmth limit, enthalpy, entropy, and Gibbs free vitality, which were determined per atomic weight, sub-atomic volume to and surface, which was estimated in this test, were assessed as for one another.
