Biochemical and hematological evaluations of Bryonia epigaea tubers
BN Sinha, D Sasmal, SP Basu
July-September 1999, 19(1):25-27
Bryonia epigaea (cucurbitaceae) has been evaluated on various inflammatory models in rats in our laboratory. Ana anti-inflammatory drug(s) irrespective of its potency may not be devoid of undesirable effects on biochemical and hematological parameters. Alcoholic extract of Bryonia epigaaea (BE-Extract) at the dose of 50 mg/kg body weight, was administered to rats. Hepatotxic and nephrotoxic effects of BE-Extract were studies by measuring cholesterol, urea, uric acid, SGOT, SGPT and glucose levels in blood. Effects of BE-Extract on RBC count, WBC count, platelet count, hemoglobin content, clotting and bleeding time were also studied.

Possible correlates of free radicals and free radical mediated disorders in Ayurveda with special referance to Bhutagni Vyapara and Ama at molecular level
JS Tripathi, RH Singh
July-September 1999, 19(1):17-20
The description of metabolic processes, operating at various levels insider the body, has been essentially covered in Ayurveda under thirteen types of Agnis and their functions at different levels, which are often compared with the enzymes and biochemical which take part in biological and / or biophysical transformations and reactions. When these Agnis, at different levels, get disordered they lead to the production of certain undesired elements or byproducts in the system, which are called as 'Ama' in ayurveda and are considered as very important morbid factor responsible for causation of a variety of diseases and playing key role in genesis of most of the diseases. The present article attempts to correlate the most recent concept of today's medicine i.e., Free Radical concept with that of the concept of Agni and Ama, described in Ayurveda and thereby opens newer vistas of search for remedies from Ayurvedic research, which may be helpful in the prevention and care of Free Radical Mediated Diseases.

July-September 1999, 19(1):76-85
Transdermal diffusion studies of a polyherbal ointment were carried out in vito using franz- Diffusion cell and microbial one inhibition diameter as drug release monitoring parameters. Out of the three ointment base prepared, (Hydrocarbon Base (HB), surfactant Base (SB), Surfactant Base + (Penetration Enhancer (10 % DMSO) SBPE), we observed that SBPE possesses maximum drug release capacity, as indicated by simultaneous high performance liquid chromatograph (HPLC) and microbial one inhibition monitoring studies. Clinical observations showed at SBPE was effective in cases like infected wounds, scratches and abrasions, infected scabies, pyoderma and furunculosis. The overall cure rate s 79.3% with the antimicro-bial ointmtmtent.

P Padma, J.P.N. Chansouria, RL Khosa
July-September 1999, 19(1):7-10
The hepatoprotective effect of Annona muricata and Polyalthia cerasoides (Annonaceae) were monitored by estimating the serum transaminases (SGOT and SGPT), serum alkaline phosphatase (SALP), liver and brain lipid peroxidation (LOP) and their total protein content. Both drugs at a dose of 100 μg/kg significantly prevented the increase in serum transaminases, SALP, liver and brain LOP and decrease in liver and brain total protein content following carbontetrachloride (CCl) induced hepatoxicity in albino rats.
