Improvement in serum amylase and glucose levels in diabetic rats on oral administration of bisdemethoxycurcumin from Curcuma longa and limonoids from Azadirachta indica

Improvement in serum amylase and glucose levels in diabetic rats on oral administration of bisdemethoxycurcumin from Curcuma longa and limonoids from Azadirachta indica

Curcuma longa and Azadirachta indica are historically used in Indian delicacies and Ayurvedic drugs as nutraceuticals towards diabetes. The crude C. longa isopropanol extract, bisdemethoxycurcumin (BDMC), the purified bioactive part from C. longa, and limonoids azadiradione, gedunin from A. indica, are in a position to inhibit in vitro the antidiabetic goal human pancreatic α-amylase independently.…

Serum carnitine concentration and the acyl to free carnitine ratio in nondialysis chronic kidney disease and hemodialysis patients

Serum carnitine concentration and the acyl to free carnitine ratio in nondialysis chronic kidney disease and hemodialysis patients

Mechanisms of impaired fatty acid metabolism will not be the similar in nondialysis and hemodialysis patients. Correlations between the serum free carnitine concentration (FC), acylcarnitine concentration (AC), acyl to free carnitine ratio (AC/FC) and estimated glomerular filtration charge (eGFR) in the nondialysis inhabitants and the length of hemodialysis in hemodialysis patients have been investigated. As…
