The objective of this study was to evaluate the wound healing1 potential of the ethonolic extract of Canthium coromandelicum. The study was done on male albino rats using1 excision model. The ethanolic extract, treated wounds were found to epithelize faster and the rate of wound contraction was significantly increased as compared to control and standard wounds (p<0.001and p<0.01). From the results, the ethanolic extract of Canthium coromandelicum had greater wound healing activity than the standard ointment Cipladine. The enhanced wound healing activity of alcoholic extract may be due to free radical scavenging action and the antibacterial property of the phyto constituents (viz., tannins and flavonoids) present in it which either due to their individual or additive effect fastens the process of wound healing. Presence of flavonoids and tannins in alcohol extract was also confirmed by preliminary phytochemical investigation. ©2014 Academic Journals Inc. Source

Introduction: Arsenic, a well-known toxic element, has become one of the biggest causes for clinical concerns among elemental toxicities. Arsenicosis has been reported from many regions of the country, especially on exposure induced by ground water contamination. The clinical effects of chronic arsenic toxicity are generally varied and its timely diagnosis and management pose a big challenge. Methodology: Our study reports analysis of blood arsenic levels in a pan-India cohort of 205,530 including 111,737 males and 93,793 females respectively. The cohort included all age groups from infants to old adults. Arsenic levels were analyzed using the analytical platform of ICP-MS touted to be the gold standard for elemental analysis. Result: Blood arsenic levels of ≥. 5 μg/L were considered high in our study. The total frequency of high arsenic cases detected in the study is 1.37%. The frequency in males was 1.47% and in females it was detected to be 1.25%. Also, maximum cases of high arsenic levels were detected to be from the state of Kerala and in cities from Mumbai. Conclusion: Very few studies have recorded the frequency of high arsenic levels in Indians as well as its average blood levels in a pan-India cohort. Our study has made a pilot attempt to highlight the same to generate awareness about this elemental menace in the Indian context. © 2016 Elsevier B.V.. Source

Introduction: Elements form a basic and natural constituent of the Earth's crust and are released into the atmosphere due to many human activities like mining and manufacturing. Of all, the elements, lead toxicity is a prevailing as well as a growing concern the world over because of its ability to affect multiple clinical functions. Methodology: Blood lead levels have been analyzed in a large pan-India cohort of 222,668 comprising of 121,115 males and 101,553 females respectively. The cohort included all age groups from < 2 to > 55. years old. The analytical platform of Inductively Coupled Plasma-Mass Spectrometry has been used to assess lead levels. Result: Blood lead levels of ≥ 150 μg/L was considered high for analysis. The total frequency of high lead levels detected in our study was 1.16%. The frequency of males affected were higher than females, with the difference being statistically significant.. Conclusion: Lead being ubiquitous in its presence and also serving no biological function, has grown today to become a serious threat to human health. The high frequency of affected detected in our study raises a cause for concern. Determining its presence and the most affected geography in any country will aid in charting guidelines on controlling its release as well as exposure. © 2015 Elsevier B.V.. Source
