Mohit Kotnala, Tarun Virmani
The continuous practice of traditional medicines provides scientific validation of the use of herbal medicines, which eventually leads to widespread recognition among the socioeconomic healthcare systems. Anaphalis triplinervis
, (Asteraceae) is native species being used to prevent, treat, and cure the hepatic ailment, in Chinese and Indian traditional systems of medicine. we investigated the hepatoprotective effect of A. triplinervis
extracted with hydroethanolic solvent (HEEAT) a potent natural anti-oxidant against carbon tetrachloride-induced hepatic injury in rats and elucidate the inflammatory cascade leading to apoptosis in adult rat liver. Adult Wistar rats were randomized into 6 groups and each group contains six animals, (n=6). Group I: normal control; animals treated with vehicle. Group II: toxin control; rats administered with CCl4+Olive oil 1:1 i.p
., Group III: standard; silymarin (125 mg/kg), Group IV, V, and VI administered with HEEAT 100, 200, 300 mg/kg up to 14 days. The body weight and hematological assessment were performed further the antioxidant activity was determined by assay for catalase, glutathione reductase, superoxide dismutase, and malondialdehyde in the hepatic tissue. Increased oxidative stress, cytokines (TNF-alpha and IL-1beta), NF-kappa β, and caspase-3 levels in CCl4-treated rats. Co-administration with HEEAT significantly prevented all the biochemical and molecular alterations in the hepatic tissue of CCl4-treated rats in a dose-dependent manner. The hepatoprotective effect was further confirmed by examining the liver organ weight and histopathological analysis using H&E staining. Collectively the findings from the current study demonstrate the possible involvement of oxidative- stress-mediated activation of inflammatory cascade and apoptosis in chronic CCl4-induced liver injury and suggest the effectiveness of HEEAT in mitigating the liver toxicity associated with chronic CCl4 administration. Further, our study using morphological, hematological, biochemical, histopathological data analysis suggest that HEEAT may serve as an effective antioxidant and hepatoprotective candidate.

Pal AKF, Raja S
According to an international conference on harmonization (ICH), elemental impurities can come into drug products from various sources. These elemental impurities thus have to be quantified in drugs. Atorvastatin calcium is a widely used drug to treat cardiovascular diseases. Nickel used as a catalyst during the synthesis process of atorvastatin calcium can cause toxicity to humans and, hence, have to be quantified. A simple, efficient, and accurate, validated method was developed to estimate nickel content as an elemental impurity in atorvastatin calcium using atomic absorption spectroscopy (AAS) with 0.2 nm slit width with a nickel hollow cathode lamp. Acetylene and air mixture was used for flame with 232.0 nm wavelength. The system performance was evaluated by performing the system suitability parameters. The limit of detection and limit of quantification were found to be 0.086 mg/mL and 0.23 mg/mL, respectively. Accuracy studies recoveries were performed at three spiking levels at 50%, 100%, and 150%, and the results were found to be 92.67%, 91.33%, and 91.00%, respectively. It concludes that according to the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) <232>, this developed and validated atomic absorption spectroscopy method for determining nickel in atorvastatin calcium medication substance was within the permitted limit.

One of the most dangerous pollutants in water are pharmaceutical, which were treated with the use of easy, simple and inexpensive. The adsorption process depends on the use of available and inexpensive surfaces. In this study, it relied on the use of clay (Bentonite), where several factors were studied, including the effect of surface weight, the effect of drug concentration and function. The acidity isotherms were also studied, and it was based on measuring the concentration of the residual from the adsorption process with the formation of the colored complex. In this paper, a fast, inexpensive, simple and highly sensitive colorimetric method was used for the determination of the amino drug (4-Aminoantipyrine 4AAP). A new azo dye was prepared by the diazanium process in the presence of acidic medium and the formation of diazanium salt, which reacts with a reagent in the presence of an alkaline medium to form azo dye with violet color. Several factors have been studied to develop the color of the compound and to obtain the best absorption and high sensitivity. Among these factors are the effect of reagent volume, effect of base volume and quality, effect of temperature, effect of addition order and type of reagent. This colorimetric method is very suitable for the determination of 4AAP in commercial pharmaceutical formulations such as.tablets and capsules to give a stable color for three hours. This method is characterized by its color accuracy and high accuracy, as well as high sensitivity for drug estimation.

Pal AK, Raja S
Nickel is a suspected immunotoxic and immunomodulatory agent and an allergen in humans in its elemental form. Also, nickel is a carcinogen that can cause multiple types of cancer in humans. According to the international council for harmonization (ICH) quality guideline ICH Q3D (R1), nickel falls under category 2A. It means that nickel has a high chance of occurring in drugs, and hence the risk assessment must be done compulsorily. The goal of this review is to summarize how various analytical methods such as X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, atomic absorption spectroscopy, and inductively coupled plasma spectroscopy have been used to quantify nickel as an elemental impurity in various sample materials such as pharmaceutical drugs, cosmetics, blood plasma, and environmental water and soil samples, among others. This evaluation serves as a guide to determining the optimal analytical approach for estimating nickel based on several aspects such as sample type, sensitivity required, skill, and method cost.

Ankita Kondhalkar, Ranjit Ambad, Nandkishor Bankar, Chandrasekhar Mahakalkar
Osteoporosis is a condition that can have a significant influence on many postmenopausal women’s lives. As the population ages, osteoporosis with its potentially fatal consequence of fracture is becoming more common and assessing bone health is an important part of a woman’s normal care. More tangible efforts are required for osteoporosis patient prevention, early diagnosis, and practicable and inexpensive management. We anticipated that biochemical markers could allow for dynamic and quick measurements of total body skeletal metabolism, which could be useful in the treatment of postmenopausal osteoporosis (PMO) as well as evaluating the effectiveness of antiresorptive therapy. Aim:
Biochemical Studies in Osteoporosis of Women in Central India. Material and Method
: The present study was conducted at the Department of Biochemistry, Datta Meghe Medical College and Shalinitai Meghe Hospital Nagpur and JNMC Sawangi Wardha. The postmenopausal women in the age group of 45 to 60 years and diagnosed as osteoporosis by clinician were selected as study group. Results:
This study demonstrates that osteoblastic activity as assessed by bone formation marker is elevated in PMO. Osteocalcin is a promising marker of bone turnover & it can provide dynamic status of bone remodeling. Simple, straightforward, low-cost biochemical markers such as blood calcium, ALP, albumin, and phosphorus could be employed as indicators of accelerated bone turnover in routine biochemical studies in osteoporosis of 150 women to enable early management to reduce fracture owing to osteoporotic changes. The combined use of bone mineral density (BMD) and these biochemical markers will be of great help to the treatment decisions and to monitor effect of therapy. Conclusion:
Acute variations in bone turnover rate are reflected by biochemical indicators of bone. Bone turnover lowers in PMO women on antiresorptive medication, as evidenced by lower levels of marker. Changes in the concentration of these indicators can be used to track how effectively a treatment is working. Antiresorptive therapy-induced decreases in marker levels may be an early indicator of eventual BMD increases and a reduction in fracture risk.
