[1] Aloe vera We review the scientific literature regarding the aloe vera plant and its products. Aloe vera is known to contain several pharmacologically active ingredients, including a carboxypeptidase that inactivates bradykinin in vitro, salicylates, and a substance(s) that inhibits thromboxane formation in vivo. Scientific studies exist that support an antibacterial and antifungal effect for substance(s) in aloe vera. Studies and case reports provide support for the use of aloe vera in the treatment of radiation ulcers and stasis ulcers … Continue reading “Latest News on Aloe Vera : May 21”

Adenosine Triphosphate Adenosine 5′-triphosphate (ATP) is a purine nucleotide found in every cell of the human body. In addition to its well established role in cellular metabolism, extracellular ATP and its breakdown product adenosine, exert pronounced effects in a variety of biological processes including neurotransmission, muscle contraction, cardiac function, platelet function, vasodilatation and liver glycogen metabolism. These effects are mediated by both P1 and P2 receptors. A cascade of ectonucleotidases plays a role in the effective regulation of these processes … Continue reading “Latest Research on Adenosine Triphosphate: Jan 2021”

Improved analysis of malondialdehyde in human body fluids The widely used TBA assay for lipid peroxidation was modified to minimize artefactual oxidative degradation of lipids during the assay. Formation of the TBA-MDA condensation product was studied with and without exclusion of oxygen, and the concentration effect of BHT addition was examined. Oxygen was depleted from the reaction mixture by extensive argon gassing. Exclusion of oxygen resulted in decreased TBARS production in plasma but not in standard solutions. High BHT concentrations … Continue reading “Latest Research on Malondialdehyde: Dec 2020”

Cytotoxic and immunopotentiating effects of ethanolic extract of Nigella sativa L. seeds In-vitro cytotoxic screening of extracts of Nigella sativa L. seeds (Ranunculaceae) indicated cytotoxicity in the ethyl-acetate fraction (EAF) against different classes of cancer cell lines, P388, Molt4, Wehi 164, LL/2, Hep G2, SW620 and J82, as measured by 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide (MTT) assay. The ethyl-acetate column chromatographic fraction (CC-5) showed selectivity against Hep G2, Molt4, and LL/2. CC-5 was relatively non-toxic against human umbilical cord endothelial cells at 50 … Continue reading “Latest Research on Ethanolic Extract: Dec 2020”

Analysis of Xanthophylls in Corn by HPLC An HPLC method was developed using the C-30 carotenoid column to separate and identify the major xanthophylls in corn (lutein, zeaxanthin, and β-cryptoxanthin). A photodiode array detector and a mobile phase consisting of methyl tert-butyl ether/methanol/water was used. All three xanthophylls eluted in less than 25 min. Yellow dent corn had a total xanthophyll content of 21.97 μg/g with lutein content of 15.7 μg/g, zeaxanthin content of 5.7 μg/g, and β-cryptoxanthin of 0.57 … Continue reading “Latest Research on HPLC Profile: Dec 2020”

Deltamethrin-induced oxidative damage and biochemical alterations in rat and its attenuation by Vitamin E Deltamethrin is a synthetic pyrethroid insecticide used worldwide in agriculture, home pest control, protection of foodstuff and disease vector control. The objective of this study was to investigate the propensity of deltamethrin to induce oxidative stress and changes in biochemical parameters and enzyme activities in male rats following a short-term (30 days) oral exposure and its possible attenuation by Vitamin E (Vit. E). Rats were assigned … Continue reading “Latest Research on Biochemical Alterations : Dec 2020”

Lipoprotein Lipase LIPOPROTEIN lipase, a hydrolytic enzyme produced by many tissues, is rate-limiting for the removal of lipoprotein triglycerides from the circulation. It also has distinct roles in many normal tissues, also as a crucial role in certain metabolic diseases, including obesity. quite 40 years ago, Hahn noticed that intravenous heparin totally cleared diet-induced lipemia in dogs.1 The addition of heparin to plasma in vitro didn’t reproduce this effect, suggesting that the causative agent was released into plasma by heparin … Continue reading “News Update on Lipoprotein Research: Feb – 2020”

Dietary Supplement Use in the United States, 2003–2006 Dietary supplement use has steadily increased over time since the 1970s; however, no current data exist for the U.S. population. Therefore, the aim of this analysis was to estimate dietary supplement use using the NHANES 2003–2006, a nationally representative, cross-sectional survey. Dietary supplement use was analyzed for the U.S. population (≥1 y of age) by the DRI age groupings. Supplement use was measured through a questionnaire and was reported by 49% of … Continue reading “Latest Research on Dietary Supplement: Jan – 2020”

CARBON TETRACHLORIDE HEPATOTOXICITY During the past twenty years, study of the liver disease iatrogenic by carbon tet has responded to a pair of periods of revolutionary modification, and at this time a 3rd revolutionary modification is going down. The dominant notion guiding most of the thinking before 1948 was that deadly and organic process malady} disease may well be understood in terms of failure in transport of fatty acids as phospholipids. As quantitative analyses of whole body lipoid and neutral … Continue reading “News Update on Hepatotoxicity Research: Aug – 2019”
