Abstract: In present study physicochemical characteristics of ground water samples of in and around Sehore city of M.P. India were studied to evaluate its fitness for public drinking. Water samples were collect ed from four different collecting points of selected area. Physicochemical parameters were analyzed and values obtained were compared with standard values recommended by WHO and ISI. Discusses the results obtained in due course of research work done along with the expected consequences. The whole research work is given containing the impact of pollution in human beings with some suggestion by which intrusion of pollutions into water can be prevented and prescribed some simpler indigenous technologies for purification.Download PDF

Abstract: A Periodic Mesoporous Organosilica (PMO) is an organic-inorganic hybrid composition with ordered porous structure on a molecular imprinted polymer (MIP). A triblock copolymer Pluronic F127 poly(ethyle ne glycol)- poly(propylene glycol)-poly(ethylene glycol) as structure directing agent (SDA) and 1,4-bis(triethoxysilyl)benzene (BTEB) as a precursor were used to synthesis the PMO-MIP using a non-covalent approach. The non-covalent approachshowed a limited number of selective imprinted sites due to the lack of strong intermolecular attractions between DDT template and the BTEB precursor. However, treatment of PMO-MIP with chlorotrimethylsilane (CTMS) significantly reduced the SiO-H and Si-OH resulting in a more non-polar material. The synthesized PMO-MIP was able to recover 106%, 85% and 99% of DDT, DDD and DDE respectively which shows that it can be used not only for extraction of DDT and its metabolites from environmental samples but also as a clean-up for samples.Download PDF

Abstract: Objective-The main objective is to prepare an efficacious, stable and economic cream containing the essential oil (citronella oil) of Cymbopogon nardus for its antimicrobial activity. Methods- Topic al formulations containing essential oil of Cymbopogon nardus were developed for their promising antimicrobial activity against selected microbes. The formulations (cream-w/o type) were prepared using standard methods and assessed for different pharmaceutical parameters. An in vitro antimicrobial study of the formulation was performed by using Agar-cup plate method. The cream formulations evaluated for pH, Viscosity and Spreadibility. Result- Among the four formulations (F1-F4), F4 showed good spreadability, viscosity & pH. The pH result shows that the formulations are considered acceptable without the risk of any irritation on application to the skin. As the formulation F4 was found to be the most suitable preparation and hence subjected for the antimicrobial activity. Cream formulation shown range for zone of growth inhibition (ZGI) 22.6 ± 0.58 for Staphylococcus aureus& 23.8 ± 1.15 mm for Escherichia coli. The BOROLINE and BOROPLUS cream are used for the comparative study. The Data obtained in the form of zone of growth inhibition (mm in diameter) indicate that the activity of cream formulation was more pronounced against Staphylococcus aureus & Escherichia coli. Conclusion- From the present work it was concluded that the formulated antimicrobial cream using essential oil is natural, safe, effective, usable for the skin and stable too. Download PDF

Abstract: Paediatric cutaneous mastocytosis (MC) is a rare and benign disease, affecting mainly children from birth to 2 years of age. Four clinical forms are distinguished: pigment aryurticaria, papulo-nodular MC (or mastocytoma), macular telangiectatic MC and diffuse MC. It is a clonal pathology, KIT dependent, considered favourable evolution, exceptionally fatal. No evolution are predictoris currently identified. Material and methods: Our retrospective study looked at 5 cases of cutaneous mastocytosis collected at the Dermatology Department of Hassan II University Hospital in Fez over a period of 3 years from January 2013 to January 2016. The average age of our patients was 27 months (with extremes ranging from 4 months to 3 years). The sex ratio was 4 (4 boys and 1 girl). For 5 patients, the diagnosis of MC was clinically suspected. The Darrier sign was positive in 2 cases. The histopathological study of cutaneous biopsies confirmed the diagnosis of CM in all cases. The immune histochemical study, done in 3 cases, mounted a diffuse and intense positivity to CD-117 (C-kit). The anatomo-clinical confrontation made it possible to retain the diagnosis of urticaria pigmentosa in 3 patients. In one child, it was a mastocytoma. Finally, the last patient presented at the same time lesions of urticaria pigmentosa in its bullous form associated with papulonodular mastocytosis lesions. No patients had extra-cutaneous manifestations of the disease. Conclusion: Through 5 cases of mastocytosis in children and a review of the literature, wetry to clarify the evolution and we insist on the need to establish standardized criteria for clinical analysis, follow-up recommendations, systematically to know the mutational status of KIT, to define the necessary predictive prognostic factors.Download PDF
