A simple and sensitive method for the detection of “Oxytetracycine” levels in ready-to-eat beef by liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry

Antimicrobial drug residues have emerged as one of the public health problems worldwide. In this study, a modified sensitive liquid chromatography mass spectrometry (LC-MS) method to detect the “Oxytetracycine” (OTC) levels in ready-to-eat beef meat in Tanzania was evaluated. Beef samples were extracted in acetonitrile in ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) buffer (pH 4), followed by cleaning up with...

Antimicrobial potential evaluation of hydroethanolic extracts of the species Anacardium occidentale Linn.

The species Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli have shown increased antimicrobial resistance, which can be overcome with plant extracts, in view of their molecular complexity, for example extracts of Anacardium occidentale Linn (cashew). The objective was to evaluate the in vitro antimicrobial activity of cashew stem bark extract. Samples were collected in Santa Cruz / RN / Brazil, and after dried and crushed,...

Evaluation of antidiabetic effect and hematotological profile of methanol extract of Ceiba pentandra G (Malvaceae) stem bark on alloxan-induced diabetic rats

The anti-diabetic effect of methanol extract of stem bark of Ceiba pentandra and its beneficial/ toxicological effect on hematological parameters in normal and alloxan-induced-diabetic rats were studied. The acute toxicity (LD50­) test and phytochemical analysis were also carried studied. The diabetic rats were divided into five groups of 5 animals each given oral administration of the extract daily for 14 days. The...
