Although chitosan (CHT, a linear cationic polysaccharide) is biodegradable, biocompatible, non-toxic, and mucoadhesive in nature, the low solubility of CHT in aqueous and alkaline media limits its applicability in pharmaceutical and biomedical field. This necessitate the introduction of new chemically-modified derivatives of CHT those can surmount the solubility barrier. Herein, N,N,N-trimethyl chitosan (TMC), a quaternized hydrophilic derivative of CHT, was synthesized by two-step reductive methylation of CHT and characterized for (1)H NMR and zeta potential measurements...

BACKGROUND: Measurement of maximum inspiratory pressure is the most prevalent method used in clinical practice to assess the strength of the inspiratory muscles. Although there are many devices available for the assessment of inspiratory muscle strength, there is a dearth of literature describing the reliability of devices that can be used in clinical patient assessment. The capsule-sensing pressure gauge (CSPG-V) is a new tool that measures the strength of inspiratory muscles; it is easy to use, noninvasive, inexpensive and lightweight...

In the present study, anticonvulsant activity of methanol extract of Eclipta alba (10-200 mg/kg) was studied using pentylenetetrazole- and picrotoxin-induced seizure models. Mechanism of effect of methanol extract of Eclipta alba was further elucidated by studying its GABAA receptor modulatory activity and its effect on levels of GABA in mice brain. Methanol extract of Eclipta alba exhibited potent anticonvulsant activity but has saturation of its pharmacological activity at 50 mg/kg. At the concentration of 10 mg/ml, contractions induced in guinea pig ileum was blocked by picrotoxin, but it didn't not show any increase in GABA levels in mice brain after treatment...

Liver mitochondria undergo dynamic alterations following chronic alcohol feeding to mice. Intragastric alcohol feeding to mice resulted in 1) increased state III respiration (109% compared with control) in isolated liver mitochondria, probably due to increased levels of complexes I, IV, and V being incorporated into the respiratory chain; 2) increased mitochondrial NAD(+) and NADH levels (∼2-fold), with no change in the redox status; 3) alteration in mitochondrial morphology, with increased numbers of elongated mitochondria; and 4) enhanced mitochondrial biogenesis in the liver, which corresponded with an up-regulation of PGC-1α (peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor γ coactivator-1α)...

The effect of polyvinyl pyrrolidone (PVP) K30 and/or L-arginine on etoricoxib-HPbetaCD complex was investigated. The phase solubility profiles were classified as A(L)-type, both in absence or presence of auxiliary substances used. The apparent stability constant (K(c)) of binary complex obtained at room temperature, 371.80 +/- 2.61 M(-1), was decreased with the addition of PVP and arginine indicating no benefit of addition of auxiliary substances to promote higher complexation efficiency. Therefore, solid etoricoxib-HPbetaCD binary systems were prepared and characterized by proton nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (1HNMR), X-ray powder diffractometry, Fourier transformation-infrared spectroscopy, and dissolution studies...

For human exercise at intensities greater than approximately 70 to 85% of maximal levels of exertion, ventilation (V E) increases proportionately to core temperature (T C) following distinct T C thresholds. This suggested T C in humans could be a modulator of exercise-induced ventilation. This study tested the reproducibility of relationships between oesophageal temperature (T oes) ventilation and its components during incremental exercise. On two nonconsecutive days, at an ambient temperature of 22.1+/-0.3 degrees C and RH of 45+/-5%, seven untrained adult males of normal physique pedaled on a seated cycle ergometer in an incremental exercise protocol from rest to the point of exhaustion...

A screening system is described that can detect and confirm inhibitors of the late steps of cell wall biosynthesis. The primary high through-put screen monitors induction of beta-lactamase following exposure to samples, in an Escherichia coli envA- strain that carries the beta-lactamase gene from Citrobacter freundii on a plasmid. Positive samples were detected from compound libraries, from natural products libraries, and from fractions of natural products crude preparations. These samples were then subjected to in vitro assays that could detect the incorporation of soluble cell wall precursor into Lipid I, Lipid II, and polymerized cell wall, using a TLC system that was very accurate and unambiguous in detecting known cell wall inhibitors...

We devised two screening systems to detect cell wall transglycosylation inhibitors. One screen utilizes a mutant of Enterococcus faecalis strain A256 that is dependent on vancomycin or moenomycin for growth. In the absence of transglycosylation inhibitors the strain fails to grow, while in the presence of inhibitors, cells are rescued. A second screening organism E. faecalis strain MDD212 utilizes a translational fusion of the lacZ gene to the vanH promoter in a derivative of E. faecalis that contains a vancomycin resistance determinant...
