The low cost absorbent neem leaf powder has been investigated for the effectiveness in decolorization of wastewater containing a dye name methylene blue. Effect of various parameters such as agitation time, pH, temperature and adsorbent dosage has been carried out in this study. Isotherm studies were conducted on a laboratory scale and the data evaluated for compliance with Langmuir and Freundlich isotherm models. Both models were well fit to equilibrium data. Batch pH study indicated that adsorbent was effective in the removal of acid dye and the disperse dye at lower pH values. For the basic dye maximum removals was exhibited at higher pH values. © 2015, International Journal of ChemTech Research.All right reserved.

Diabet is one of the most disorders in endocrine part of pancreas. use some plants whit therapeutic effect such as lapa major is a route for remedy in diabet . this study was done to virify effect of root extract of lapa major. In this investigation 36 male vistrar rat were divided into 6 group randomly. Except for group 1, in all group diabet was induced .group 2 received insulin and in group 4,5 and 6 extract was administration in dose of 100, 200 and 300 mg/kg. blood samples were collected on day 7, 14 , and 21 .result were analyzed by anova test . results indicated that the level of blood glucose were increased after induced of diabet . the level of blood glucose in group which received insulin and in all diabetic groups in day 21 decresedsignhficantly . in the other groups (4, 5) the level of glucose decreased , but not significantly, insupoosed that, because of low number of cases or low number of days that extract was administration.

Background: Hot flashes are the most common symptoms experienced by women around the time of menopause. Many women are interested in herbal medicines because of fear of side effects of hormone therapy. Objective: The aim of this systematic review was to assess the effectiveness of Iranian herbal medicines in alleviating hot flashes. Materials and Methods: MEDLINE (1966 to January 2015), Scopus (1996 to January 2015), and Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (The Cochrane Library, issue 1, 2015) were searched along with, SID, Iran Medex, Magiran, Medlib and Irandoc. Nineteen randomized controlled trials met the inclusion criteria. Results: Overall, studies showed that Anise (Pimpinella anisum), 60Tlicorice (Glycyrrhizaglabra)60T, Soy, Black cohosh, Red clover, Evening primrose, Flaxseed, Salvia officinalis, Passiflora ،itex Agnus Castus, Piascledine (Avacado plus soybean oil), 60TSt. John's wort (Hypericum perforatum)60T, and valerian can alleviate the side effects of hot flashes. Conclusion: This research demonstrated the efficacy of herbal medicines in alleviating hot flashes, which are embraced both with people and health providers of Iran Therefore, herbal medicine can be seen as an alternative treatment for women experiencing hot flashes. © 2016, Research and Clinical Center for Infertitlity.

Cadmium hydroxide nanowires loaded on activated carbon (Cd(OH)2-NW-AC) was applied for removal of malachite green (MG) and sunset yellow (SY) in single and binary component systems. This novel material was characterized and identified by different techniques such as Brunauer, Emmett and Teller (BET), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis. Unique properties such as high surface area (>1271m2g-1) and low pore size (<35Å) and average particle size lower than 50Å in addition to high reactive atom and presence of various functional groups make it possible for efficient removal of these two dyes. In the single component system in this study, maximum adsorption capacity of 80.6 for SY and 19.0mgg-1 for MG at 25°C was reported. The Langmuir model had very well fit with the experimental data (R2>0.996). A better agreement between the adsorption equilibrium data and mono-component Langmuir isotherm model was found. The kinetics of adsorption for single and binary mixture solutions at different initial dye concentrations were evaluated by the nonlinear first-order and second-order models. The second-order kinetic model had very well fit with the dynamical adsorption behavior of a single dye for lower and higher initial dye concentrations. SY and MG without spectra overlapping were chosen and analyzed with high accuracy in binary solutions. The effect of multi-solute systems on the adsorption capacity was investigated. The isotherm constants for SY and MG were also calculated in binary component systems at concentrations within moderate ranges, the Langmuir isotherm model satisfactorily predicted multi-component adsorption equilibrium data. The competitive adsorption favored the SY in the A mixture solution (both SY and MG concentration at 10mgL-1) and B mixture solution (25mgL-1 of SY and 10mgL-1 of MG). Also, in both cases, kinetic data was fairly described by two-step diffusion model. An endothermic and spontaneous nature for the adsorption of the dyes studied were shown from thermodynamic parameters in single and binary component systems. © 2013 The Korean Society of Industrial and Engineering Chemistry.

Objective: To investigate whether body mass index (BMI), abdominal obesity or fat distribution influence the quality of life of postmenopausal women.Methods: Subjects in this cross-sectional study were 233 postmenopausal women (aged 45-70 years) with an intact uterus and ovaries and who were sexually active and not using hormone therapy. Anthropometric measurements were recorded and subjects were interviewed using a specific health-related quality of life (HR-QoL) instrument, the MENQoL scale.Results: According to BMI values, 31.5% of the women were obese, 42.2% were overweight, 25.8% were normal weight and none were underweight. However, according to the MENQOL scale results, obese women scored significantly higher on symptoms for physical domains. The women with the android pattern of fat distribution had significantly higher scores in the vasomotor and physical domains (p<0.05).Conclusions: Obesity did not affect global HR-QoL in postmenopausal women, but appeared to have an influence on the psychical domains. Other anthropometric measurements were not associated with differences in HR-QoL. Keeping the anthropometric indices in the normal/premenopausal might improve the quality of life in menopause women. © 2013 Informa UK Ltd.
