Pathological Correlates to Prolactin and Growth Hormone

Prolactin (PRL) and Growth Hormone (GH) are important regulators of body growth and metabolism. The secretion and activities of GH and PRL are influenced by a variety of variables at various levels. These hormones begin their biological effects by attaching to their respective membrane-bound receptors for GH and PRL (GHR and PRLR). Changes in target…

Study on Revisiting Sacral Hiatus

The caudal opening of the sacral canal is known as the sacral hiatus. Through the sacral hiatus, caudal epidural anaesthesia is administered for a variety of therapeutic and diagnostic procedures. In the literature, there is a 25% failure rate for caudal epidural blocks. This procedure’s high failure rate could be due to the sacral hiatus’s…

Spectral, Thermal, Mineral and Phenolic Characteristics of Plant Seeds from Ten Families

Seeds are a main dietary component for humans and animals. In this work, the physical, spectral, thermal, mineral and phenolic characteristics of seeds from 47 species belonging to 10 families (Arecaceae, Amaranthaceae, Anacardiaceae, Asteraceae, Fabaceae, Lamiaceae, Malvaceae, Rutaceae, Sapindaceae and Sapotaceae) are described. The seeds had moisture and ash contents in the 1.6–12.9% and 1.0–5.5%…

Morphological and Molecular Study of the Glyptosternoid Catfish, Parachiloglanis hodgarti (Hora, 1923) from Pharping, Nepal

A fish specimen of total length (5.5 cm) captured from Pharping was instantly photographed and preserved in 95% ethanol. Its morphological characters including morphometric and meristic data were recorded using digital calipers and backlit dissecting scope. The tissue removed from the caudal fin was placed in 95% ethanol and sent to a reputed lab in…

Study on Antioxidant Activity and Anticarcinogenic Properties of “Rumput mutiara” {Hedyotis corymbosa (L.) Lam.} and “Pohpohan” {Pilea trinervia (Roxb.) Wight}

The research was conducted to determine the anticarcinogenic properties of “rumput mutiara” (Hedyotis corymbosa (L.) Lam) and “pohpohan” (Pilea trinervia (Roxb.) Wight), by the microculture tetrazolium salt (MTT) assay on the human breast carcinoma dependent-hormone (MCF-7) cell lines. The preliminary results showed that the “rumput mutiara” extract displayed the cytotoxic effects against MCF-7 with IC50-value…

Photoprotection Comprising Oil Derived from Dromedary Camel Hump Fat: An Overview

Aims: Camelus dromedarius (dromedary or one-humped camels) are known to endure harsh conditions including extreme temperatures and high solar ultraviolet (UV) radiation in desert wilderness areas. This remarkable survival in the harsh desert conditions is attributed to distinctive bodily features enabling them to cope with this toxic environment. The present study hypothesized that the oil…
