(Red Onion) Extract against Potassium Bromate Induced Intestinal Injury‏ In Rats https://ajprd.com/index.php/journal/article/view/1012 <p>Potassium bromate is an oxidizing agent and one of the cheapest dough improvers in the baking and food industry. This agent is classified as carcinogenic in rats and nephrotoxic in both man and experimental animals when given orally. The red onion, <em>Allium</em> <em>cepa</em>, is used in the daily diet for taste. Compounds in onions also have various medicinal properties, such as being anticancer, antifungal, antioxidant, anti-ulcer, and anti-inflammatory. We therefore sought to investigate whether aqueous extract of red onion would be protective against injury to the intestine</p> <p><strong>Materials and Methods</strong>: 36 Wistar male rats were divided into 6 batches. Over a 4-weeks experimental period, group I rats served as a control and group II received 100 mg/kg b.w of KBrO<sub>3</sub> on the 24th and 27th days. Group III received red onion juice at 1ml/100 g bw every day and 100 mg/kg bw of KBrO<sub>3</sub> on the 24th and 27th days. Group IV received 50 mg/kg bw of KBrO<sub>3</sub> twice per week, group V received red onion juice daily at 1ml/100 g bw and 50 mg/kg bw of KBrO3 twice per week, and group VI received 30 mg/kg KBrO<sub>3</sub> every day. The body and four organs weights, including the kidney, testis, lung and liver of all experimental rats were measured. The histopathological investigation was performed for the intestine tissues of all groups.</p> <p><strong>Results: </strong>KBrO<sub>3</sub>-treated small intestines exhibited destruction in the villi, decreased number of goblet cells, crypt loss and cell infiltration in the epithelial lining. Treatment with extract of red onion appeared to significantly ameliorate the toxic effects of KBrO<sub>3</sub>.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion</strong>: Our findings suggest that red onion ameliorates the extent of intestinal injury and appears to act as an antioxidant. This study supports that red onion has beneficial properties, although no direct clinical conclusions can be drawn from these data.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Nadia M. Kermani, Fikry A Abushofa, Amera M.

But if the liquid is treated beforehand the problem can be overcome. While there are several conventional techniques to treat the liquid before dumping, still they are not as efficient as the solvent sublation method. However, this method is not widely studied yet for large-scale applications. In this study, our objective was to determine the effect of several factors which can alter this method’s efficiency e.g. pH, Gas flow rate, volumetric flow rate, the concentration of feed, etc. We discussed in which conditions the solvent sublation process will give its maximum efficiency. This study will not only help in wastewater treatment but also for the separation of molecules of interest from a solution.&nbsp;</p> Goutam Mukhopadhyay, Aditya Sarkar, Manisha Samanta, Tripti Pal, Biswajit Chakraborty, Chandrima Dutta, Abhinandan Roy, Pijush Halder, Souhardya Dutta ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0 https://ajprd.com/index.php/journal/article/view/1024 Fri, 15 Oct 2021 15:05:29 +0530 Spectrophotometric Evaluation of Antiepileptic Activity of Ficusracemosa in Chemicals Induced Epilepsy in Mice https://ajprd.com/index.php/journal/article/view/997 <p><strong>Objective: </strong>To Evaluvate of Antiepileptic Acivity of Ficus Racemosa Extract Against Chemicals Induced epilepsy in mice, ficusracemosa is also used as antihyperglycemic, antiinflammatery , hepatoprotective action. <strong>Method : </strong>Anticonvulsant activity of three distinct dose levels of ethanolic extract of Ficus racemosa (100, 200, and 400 mg/kg) was tested in Swiss albino mice in seizures induced by Pentylenetetrazol (PTZ).

Though, novel Coronavirus devastated human lives, its earlier cousins SARS-CoV1, MERS and lesser known infections like 229E, NL63, OC43, HK01 were less threatening.&nbsp; Humankind should brace up towards identifying, managing and finding a suitable cure to prevent incidence of such deadly diseases.it is a well-known fact that viral diseases can be curbed only with vaccines. In this respect, the world has witnessed both the design and delivery of vaccines against SARS-CoV2 in a record time. Candidates for Vaccines&nbsp;designed vary from targeting proteins or nucleic acids (DNA and RNA) of the virus, with or without adjuvants with a potency to generate memory. Though, this has been lauded by the entire humankind, there is still the need for other therapeutics to control and treat COVID-19. Therapeutic Drugs&nbsp;are inexhaustible group of molecules that showed some promise in diagnosis, treatment or prevention of SARS-CoV-2 but provide no form of ‘memory’. In this Review, we summarize the current knowledge on the therapeutic options other than vaccines or licensed antiviral drugs that can be repurposed to be considered for the treatment and prevention of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Khushbu Verma, Neha Kapoor, Lamha Kumar, Neelam Yadav, Ghorai Soma Mondal ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0 https://ajprd.com/index.php/journal/article/view/996 Fri, 15 Oct 2021 16:27:33 +0530 Artificial Intelligence: A New Era in Drug Discovery https://ajprd.com/index.php/journal/article/view/995 <p>Artificial intelligence (AI) is a simulation of the process of human intelligence through computers. The process involves obtaining information, developing rules for using information, making possible or accurate conclusions, and self-correcting. The development of new drug residues begins when basic scientists learn about biological targets (receptor, enzyme, protein, and gene). These targets involve the biological processes that occur in patients with a disease. Drug discovery can be through target identification, target verification, lead identification, and effectiveness of lead. AI can offer revolutionary insights into medicine, through data from genetics, proteomics and other life sciences that advance the process of discovery and development. Artificial Intelligence (AI) has recently been developed as a fiery element in the medical care industry. AI has exciting potential for prosperity in the field of biopharmaceutical. The biopharmaceutical industry makes efforts to approach AI to improve drug discovery, reduce research and development costs, reduce the time and cost of early drug discovery, and support predicting potential risks/side effects in late trials that can be very useful in avoiding traumatic events in clinical trials and ultimately clinical trials. Usually, drug development takes five years to go to trial, but the AI drug takes just 12 months. The rapid growth in life sciences and machine learning algorithms has led to enormous statistical access to the growth of AI-based startups focused on drug innovation in recent years.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Devendra Kumar Mishra, Himani Awasthi ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0 https://ajprd.com/index.php/journal/article/view/995 Fri, 15 Oct 2021 16:51:19 +0530 Cubosomes: A Potential Drug Delivery System https://ajprd.com/index.php/journal/article/view/981 <p>The discovery of cubosomes is a classic story and deals with food science, differential geometry, biological membranes and digestive processes. Cubosomes are highly balanced and nanoparticles in design formed primarily from the lipid cubic state and protected by a polymer-based outer circle. Hydrating a surfactant that designates cubic phase and then disperses a solid state into smaller particles, typically forms cubosomes. They behave concretely like rheology with unique properties of practical interest. Cubosome formation can be optimized to engineer pore size or consist of bioactive lipids, polymers can be used for targeting to the outer circle and they are highly secure under physiological conditions. This type of network structure gives them greater drug trapping potential. Related to liposomes, the structure adds a significantly more enhanced membrane surface area to trap membrane proteins and small drug entities. Cubosome may increase the solubility of poorly soluble drugs. Due to modern advances, nanoparticles patterns include drug delivery, membrane bioreactors, artificial cells and biosensors and can be engineered both in vitro. This review, focused on modern advances in cubosome technology, not only facilitates their work but also contributes to standard procedures for the rational design of innovative systems for biomedical applications. Due to the nature of cubosome dispersion being bio-adhesive and biocompatible, as well as having different properties, cubosomes are functional systems, administered in a variety of ways, such as orally and parenterally. Cubosome structure is investigated through electron microscopy, light scattering, X-rays, and NMR, although some researchers are studying the potential of cubosomes as a delivery system.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Kajal Chaudhary, Devender Sharma ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0 https://ajprd.com/index.php/journal/article/view/981 Fri, 15 Oct 2021 16:39:50 +0530 Novel Corona Virus: Its Origin, Current Dignosis And Various Diseases Arises Due To Covid-19 https://ajprd.com/index.php/journal/article/view/1026 <p>Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus-2 is responsible for the emergence and propagation of new coronavirus illness 2019 i.e.&nbsp;COVID-19, have posed a significant threat to global public health.
