  • Scientific justification of anthelmintic medicines based on medicinal
           plant material

    • Authors: Tolochko Kateryna Valentynivna
      Abstract: Introduction: The problem of helminthiases is particularly relevant in the recent years as this group of diseases is met in all countries of the world. Ukraine also faces the increasing number of digestive system helminthiases, especially in children aged under 12 years. However, the existing range of anthelmintic medicines in Ukrainian pharmaceutical market is represented with derivatives of praziquantel, mebendazole, albendazole, piperazine, pyrantel, levamisole, and one herbal medicine - tansy flowers. Medicines of synthetic origin have diverse side effects (nausea, vomiting, pain in epigastria, diarrhea, allergy, dizziness, headache, etc.,) and, therefore, can cause a low compliance of the patient. A good alternative to the use of synthetic medicines is phytotherapy, which is based on the centuries-old experience of folk medicine. Materials and Methods: As the objects of research, there were analyzed the most common prescriptions of helminthiases phytotherapy in adults and children which are used in Ukraine, including folk anthelmintic remedies. Analysis of the possible pharmacological activity was performed with the use of power analysis and sample size (PASS)-analysis ( Results: Research of the existing range of phytomedicines with anthelmintic activity and the most commonly used remedies of folk medicine allowed to identify medicinal plants with high potential anthelmintic activity. Conclusion: The further study of their main biologically active substance with the use of PASS-analysis showed that tansy flowers, wormwood herb, wormseed flowers, elecampane rhizomes and roots, pumpkin seeds, buckthorn bark, valerian rhizomes and roots, and chamomile flowers should be considered promising medicinal plant material for development new anthelmintic medicines with narrow and broad spectrum of action with minimal toxicity.

  • Management capabilities of generative development of apple trees

    • Authors: Tatyana N. Doroshenko
      Abstract: Aim: In field and laboratory experiments, we investigated the viability of application of boric acid and Melaphen, growth regulator of the next generation, to optimize the generative activity of apple plants (Golden Delicious variety) at different stages of the annual growth and development cycle. Methods: To achieve this goal, we used field and laboratory research methods. The research was conducted in 2013-2016. Results: We revealed the effect of boric acid (at concentration of 0.1%) on the setting-up, differentiation and further development of generative buds of apple trees. Discussion: The application of boric acid in the fall contributes to strengthen and accelerate the formation of floral sprouts. The use of this compound before the beginning of the vegetation period improves the fertilization process. The growth stimulator Melaphen has the same effect on the generative activity of Golden Delicious as boric acid in the autumn and spring season. We identified an indirect effect of Melaphen on the apple plants resistance against spring frosts. Summer plant treatment with Melaphen contributes to a certain increase of economic crop, a significant increase in the activity of shoot growth in the second half of the growing season, as well as the weakening of the setting-up generative buds and the time shift in their development. Conclusion: We have demonstrated the possibility of adjustment of the fruit yield formation, when using the preparations under study, through directional increase of the concentration (biological activity) of growth factors of the auxin nature in certain plant organs and tissues, and change in this regard the nutrients displacement vector toward relevant attracting centers.

  • In vitro anticoagulant activity of Nelumbo nucifera leaf extracts on
           normal healthy blood plasma

    • Authors: S. Asha
      Abstract: Aim: Hemostasis is the process of formation of clots within the walls of damaged blood vessels. To prevent abnormal bleeding and to maintain intravascular blood in a fluid state, in this study we aimed to evaluate the possible anticoagulant effect of leaf extracts of Nelumbo nucifera. Materials and Methods: The aqueous, methanol, acetone, and ethyl acetate extracts of N. nucifera at different concentrations were tested for in vitro prothrombin time (PT) test. The in vitro anticoagulant effects of different extracts of N. nucifera in different concentrations 0.5, 0.25, 0.125, and 0.062 g/ml were examined using plasma, collected from blood samples of normal individuals by measuring PT. Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) and saline in distilled water were used as a negative and positive control, respectively. The extract plasma was subjected to anticoagulation activity and was compared with EDTA-plasma and saline plasma. Results: The methanol leaf extract of N. nucifera was found to inhibit coagulation process in 60 min: 3 s in 0.5 g/ml. The time taken for clotting at the concentration of 0.5 g/methanol leaf extract showed the moderate effect of 10 min:20 s with respect to control while ethyl acetate extract showed the least effect of 8 min: 23 s compared to control. Overall, the concentration of 0.5 g/ml of leaf extract showed a maximum effect in all the tested extracts with respect to other concentrations 0.25, 0.125, and 0.062 g/ml. Thus, N. nucifera methanol, ethanol, and ethyl acetate leaf extract in different concentrations inhibits clot formation and increases the PT in a dose-dependent manner. The observed prolonged prothrombin activity could be due to the presence of certain phytochemical constituents in the crude extract. Phytochemical analysis revealed the presence of tannins, flavonoids and steroid compounds in the crude extract and further, the active principles could be isolated and evaluated for clinical or physiological purposes. Conclusion: In vitro, anticoagulant activity studies results demonstrated that leaf extract N. nucifera possesses pharmacologically active anticoagulant components which could be helpful in preventing blood clotting disorders. Thus, in future N. nucifera leaf could be used as a supplementary source of natural anticoagulant.

  • Antimicrobial, radical scavenging, and insecticidal activity of leaf and
           flower extracts of Couroupita guianensis Aubl.

    • Authors: T. R. Prashith Kekuda
      Abstract: Objectives: The objective of the present study was carried out to investigate antimicrobial, radical scavenging, and insecticidal activity of leaf and flower of Couroupita guianensis Aubl. (Lecythidaceae). Methods: Extraction of leaf and flower was carried out by maceration process using methanol. Antibacterial and antifungal activity of extracts was carried out by agar well-diffusion method and poisoned food technique, respectively. Radical scavenging activity of extracts was determined by 1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) and 2,2′-azino-bis-3-ethylbenzthiazoline-6-sulfonic acid (ABTS) radical scavenging assays. Insecticidal activity of extracts was evaluated in terms of larvicidal and pupicidal effects against Aedes aegypti. Results: Leaf extract displayed marked antibacterial activity when compared to flower extract. Highest and least inhibitory activity of extracts was observed against Staphylococcus epidermidis and Escherichia coli, respectively. Both extracts displayed antifungal activity with highest activity exhibited by leaf extract. Highest and least susceptibility were shown by Curvularia sp. and Fusarium sp., respectively. Both extracts scavenged DPPH and ABTS radicals dose dependently. Leaf extract (IC50 = 19.61 μg/ml) caused marked DPPH radical scavenging potential than flower extract ((IC50= 257.13 μg/ml). IC50 value of ABTS radical inhibition of leaf and flower extract was found to be 7.63 and 53.34 μg/ml, respectively. Larvicidal and pupicidal activity by extracts was concentration dependent. The susceptibility of larvae and pupae to extract was in the order: 2nd instar larvae > 4th instar larvae > pupae. Leaf extract displayed marked insecticidal activity when compared to flower extract as revealed by lower LC50 values. Conclusion: Overall, leaf extract exhibited marked bioactivities than flower extract. The plant can be used to treat microbial infections and oxidative damage and to manage fungal diseases. The plant can be used against mosquito vectors which transmit arboviral diseases.

  • Phytochemical screening, free radical scavenging, antimicrobial activity
           of ethanolic extract of Leptadenia pyrotechnica

    • Authors: Suresh Purohit
      Abstract: Background: Leptadenia pyrotechnica (LP) is a well-known traditional shrub used by the tribes of Africa and Asia. Locally, it is called as Khimp and recognized as therapeutic uses as well as animal fodder. Aims: The present study investigates the preliminary phytochemical contents, free radical scavenging, and antimicrobial activity against the bacterial and fungal strains of ethanolic extract and its fraction of LP (Decne.). Materials and Methods: Ethanolic extract and fractions of LP were used to different phytochemical qualitative screening methods to identify the constituents presented in it. Total flavonoids and total phenolic contents were determined to justify its antimicrobial activity. The antibacterial and antifungal activity of the extracts was measured by disc diffusion method, minimum inhibitory concentration, minimum bactericidal concentration, minimum fungicidal concentration, and zone of inhibition against the bacterial and fungal strains. 2, 2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl free radical scavenging activity had used to evaluate the in vitro antioxidant activity of extract and fractions. Results: Preliminary phytochemical screening of extract and fractions showed the presence of alkaloids, terpenoids, phenols, flavonoids, glycosides, saponins, tannins, and steroids. Reducing efficiency revealed dose-dependent inflation in concentration (6.25-200 μg/μL) with respect to quercetin and gallic acid. The presence of phenolic compounds, terpenoids, and flavonoids contribute to potent antimicrobial activity against bacterial and fungal strains. Conclusion: The present research work concluded the effectiveness of different extract and fractions at various concentrations against the bacterial and fungal strains. Free radical scavenging activity embarks its contribution as antimicrobial along with the presence of terpenoids, flavonoids, and phenolic residues.

  • Youden’s test of the chromatographic determination of captopril in

    • Authors: Liliya Logoyda
      Abstract: Introduction: Robustness tests were originally introduced to avoid problems in interlaboratory studies and to identify the potentially responsible factors. This means that a robustness test was performed at a late stage in the method validation since interlaboratory studies are performed in the final stage. Thus, the robustness test was considered a part of method validation related to the precision (reproducibility) determination of the method. However, performing a robustness test late in the validation procedure involves the risk that when a method is found not to be robust, it should be redeveloped and optimized. At this stage, much effort and money have already been spent in the optimization and validation, and therefore one wants to avoid this. The aim of this study was to evaluate the rubustness of ultra-high-performance liquid chromatography (UHPLC) determination of captopril in tablets using Youden’s test. Materials and Methods: An efficient method to assess the robustness of analytical methods is by Youden’s test, by means of an experiment design which involves seven analytical parameters combined in eight tests. In the recent studies, we assessed the robustness of a chromatographic method to quantify captopril in tablets using Youden’s test. Results: Using the Youden’s test criteria, UHPLC method showed to be greatly robust concerning captopril content, at the introduction of variation in seven analytic parameters. The highest variation in captopril content was 0.96%, when was used column Nucleosil C18 (4.6 mm × 150 mm with a particle size of 5 μ). Using column Ascentis Express C18 Fused-Core® technology (column size 4.6 mm × 150 mm with a particle size of 5 μ) reduces the retention time of captopril more than 2 times. Conclusion: Youden’s test proved to be an efficient and helpful tool for the robustness evaluation for assay of captopril by UHPLC.

  • Nutritional profile of spinach and its antioxidant & antidiabetic

    • Authors: Manish Vyas
      Abstract: Background: A proper diet is the best source of complete nutrition which provides strength, complexion, and vitality. Nutraceuticals and dietary supplement are the functional food that promotes the health and manage the disease. Spinach (Spinacia oleracea) is a leafy vegetable and considered a good source of nutrients. Objective: The objective of the study is to determine the nutritional value and evaluate in vitro antioxidant as well as antidiabetic potential of spinach. Materials and Methods: The methanolic extract of spinach was prepared using Soxhlet extraction technique which was subjected for physicochemical, nutritional value determination along with the OH - scavenging, 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) and α-amylase inhibition activity. Result and Discussion: The results suggested the good nutritional values such as total crude fiber 4.55 ± 0.244% w/w, proteins 0.052 ± 0.0068% w/w, oils and fats 0.72 ± 0.036% w/w, carbohydrate 61.95 ± 0.382% w/w, Vitamins A 26.85 ± 0.154 μg, and Vitamins C 19.66 ± 0.21 μg. Further, methanolic extract of spinach showed the antioxidant activity and antidiabetic effect with an inhibitory concentration of 3.03 μg/mL, 6.03 μg/mL and 3.046 μg/mL for OH- scavenging, DPPH inhibition and α-amylase inhibition, respectively. Conclusion: Results revealed the potential nutraceutical values of spinach which can further explored to effectively use it by preparing suitable formulation.

  • Evaluation of anti-inflammatory and antinociceptive activity of methanol
           extract of Calotropis gigantea root

    • Authors: Subhash C. Mandal
      Abstract: Objective: Extracts of the root of Calotropis gigantea (family: Apocynaceae) have been used as a natural therapeutic agent in traditional medicine to treat inflammation and pain. This study aims to evaluate the anti-inflammatory and analgesic activity of methanol extract of C. gigantea root (MECG). Materials and Methods: The analgesic activity of MECG was evaluated using formalin-induced pain and glutamate-induced paw licking models. Antagonism of opioid receptors using naloxone was used to determine the involvement of central pathways of pain. The acute inflammation was measured by carrageenan and dextran-induced paw edema models. Cyclooxygenase (COX) assay was carried out to determine the action of MECG on prostaglandins (PGs). Results: MECG 200 mg/kg dose was found to produce a significant (P < 0.001) and dose-dependent analgesic activity in the models used. MECG caused significant inhibition of edema in the carrageenan and dextran-induced inflammation tests. MECG was found to reduce the expression of COX, thus confirming the inhibitory action of MECG on PGs. Conclusion: The findings suggest that MECG possesses analgesic and anti-inflammatory activity mediated through peripheral and central mechanisms. The results justify its traditional use in the treatment of inflammation and pain.
