Abstract

Diabetes mellitus is group of metabolic disorders characterized by an inability to produce sufficient insulin or to responds insulin that results high blood glucose level. Type-1 diabetes mellitus considered as an autoimmune disease and required life-long treatment with exogenous insulin. Blood glucose levels along with serum insulin level required for diagnosis. In present study serum and salivary biochemical changes in type-1 diabetes mellitus patients were analyzed to evaluate non-invasive diagnostic markers. For this purpose, serum calcium, phosphate, total protein, alkaline phosphatase and salivary calcium, phosphate and alpha amylase were analyzed. Overall high serum calcium levels were found in diabetic patients. Serum phosphate levels were found lower in diabetic patients as compare to normal individuals. Serum alkaline phosphatase and total protein levels were also significantly higher in diabetic patients. Salivary calcium levels increased significantly in diabetic patients as compare to normal individuals. While the salivary phosphate and salivary alpha amylase levels significantly decreased in type-1 diabetic patients. It is suggested that saliva is absolute surrogate of blood that can be used to diagnose and evaluate the progression of type-1 diabetes mellitus and as non-invasive diagnostic body fluid.

Abstract

The study designated to investigate the histological effect of the insulin on the pancreas in male adult indigenous rabbit. Treated group carry out number of experimental animals with age range 1-6 months, the experimental animals were divided in to three treated groups (A, B, C,) and control group (D) each group composed of six animal with control and each group divided in to two subgroup. Each subgroup contained three animals composed of treated and waited subgroups according on the time of injected insulin. The histological result of first treated group showed the significant decrease in the thickness of the connective tissue capsule also tissue section of the Islet of Langerhans appeared hypertrophy in cell type that consist of the endocrine acinus regions of pancreas gland.

Abstract

Tuberculosis is a deadly disease mainly caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Its treatment has proven a difficult task for humanity. More than 20 allopathic medicines are used for the treatment of tuberculosis. Almost all the drugs cause adverse effects like hypersensitivity reactions, hepatitis, vomiting, nausea etc. Due to these side effects of allopathic medication, the demand of use of herbal medication is increasing day by day. The demand of herbal medicines is also increasing due to the fact that M. tuberculosis showing much resistance against traditional allopathic drugs and attaining the condition of Multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) and Extensively Drug Resistant-Tuberculosis (XDR-TB). This particular review is aimed at importance of antiTB medicinal plants. About 15 plants are addressed in this review work, which have the potential to treat the tuberculosis. This review will stimulate researchers to conduct research on the anti-tubercular activity of different medicinal plants.
