Cytoprotective effect of Benzyl N'-(indol-3-ylmethylidene)-hydrazinecarbodithioate against ethanol-induced gastric mucosal injury in rats

Benzyl N'-(indol-3-ylmethylidene)-hydrazinecarbodithioate (BIHC) and its metal complexes have been reported to have medicinal uses (Singh and Varshney, 2006). The present study was performed to evaluate, the acute toxicity and anti-ulcer activity of this BIHC against ethanol-induced gastric ulcer. Experimental animal groups were orally pre-treated with different doses of BIHC (50, 100, 200 and 400 mg/kg) in 10%...

Preliminary phytochemical and antimicrobial screening of the leaf extract Pilostigma reticulatum (dc) Hochst

Ethanolic and aqueous extracts of Pilostigma reticulatum (dc) hochst were screened for their antimicrobial activity against Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus pyogen, Escherichia coli, Salmonella thypi and Shigella dysentery. The results indicated that the extracts inhibited the growth of one or more test pathogens. The ethanolic extract showed a broad spectrum of antimicrobial activity....

The magnetic properties of Co-Mo-S coatings by electrodeposition

The nano-coated Co-s-Mo alloys were electrodeposited from electrolytic solutions containing CoSO4, Na2MoO4, ascorbic acid, thiourea, and hexamine. The coated Co-S-Mo alloys were obtained evolving to hard magnetic behaviour. The coatings characterised by metallic lustre. The surface morphology of the coating was investigated by scanning electron microscope (SEM). The many alloys were electrodeposited using these baths....
