Pharmacological and Preliminary Phytochemical Studies of Cestrum Nocturnum on Experimental Animals

هذه الدراسة تتناول تأثير نبات مسك الليل على السلوكيات لفئران التجارب؛ النبات يسمى محليا نبات مسك اليل واسمه العلمي Cestrum nocturnum من العائلة Solanaceae البيتنجانية؛ وهو يستخدم لاضطرابات مختلفة في الطب الشعبي؛ في هذا البحث تم استخلاص النبات بطريقة النقع باستخدام الكحول الميثيلي. كما خضع نبات مسك اليل لدراسة كيميائية مبدئية لمعرفة المكونات الفعالة للنبات. أظهرت النتائج وجود العديد من المكونات العضوية وغير العضوية؛ كما تم اجراء العديد من التجارب الفارماكولوجية على مستخلص النبات باستخدام فئران التجارب (Albino mice) لدراسة تأثير النبات على الجهاز العصبي المركزي. بعد اجراء اختبارات السمية و تقدير LD50 (1361,758 mg/Kg)؛ تم اختيار الجرعات المستخدمة خلال هذه الدراسة وهي (1000, 500, 250, 125 mg/Kg). وقد درس اختبار اروين (Irwin) باستخدام اربع جرعات مختلفة (1000, 500, 250, 125 mg/Kg)؛ وكشفت النتائج تغير في بعض العوامل المقاسة في هذه التجربة مع زيادة الجرعة المستخدمة وهي: الإدراك والسلبية؛ والنشاط الحركي العفوي؛ والاستجابة للألم؛ والمشي الغير طبيعي؛ وقوة التمسك ووضعية الجسم؛ وفتحة الجفن. وفي هذه الدراسة تم توجيه الانتباه لبعض التغيرات؛ وتمت دراسة تأثير النبات على النشاط الحركي باستعمال الحلبة المفتوحة (Open feild) وقد تبين ان الجرعتين (500, 250 mg/Kg) أظهرت نقص في النشاط الحركي المتنقل وغير المتنقل.وتم أيضا اختبار القلق والسلوك باستعمال جهاز (Plus-maze) وأظهرت الدراسة عدم التأثير على القلق بينما أثبتت أن هناك نقص في النشاط الكلي. كما أثبتت الدراسة أنه ليس لنبات مسك الليل أي تأثير على السلوك الاجتهادي في اختبار(Forced swimming test ) أيضا تضمنت الدراسة البحث في امكانية تأثير النبات كمسكن للألم باستعمال طريقتين لإحداث الألم. 1) الطريقة الحرارية (Hot plate method) للكشف عن المسكنات التي تعمل على الجهاز المركزي. 2) الطريقة الكيميائية (Acetic acid induce writhing reflex method) احداث الألم بواسطة حقن حمض الخليك في تجويف بطن الحيوانات؛ للكشف عن المسكنات التي تعمل على الجهاز الطرفي. وبذلك أظهرت الدراسة أن الجرعات (1000, 500, 250, 125 mg/Kg) من مستخلص نبات مسك الليل لها تأثير مسكن للألم. ومن المثير للاهتمام في هذه الدراسة أن تأثير النبات كمسكن للألم كان أكثر من تأثير الأسبيرين (Aspirin) وذلك لجميع الجرعات المستخدمة؛ وأيضا أثبتت الدراسة أن النبات له تأثير مسكن بعمله على الجهاز الطرفي وعدم تأثيره على الجهاز المركزي . وبذلك أثبتت نتائج الاختبارات التي اجريت في هذه الدراسة أن نبات مسك الليل قد يكون له تأثير منوم وأيضا مسكن قوي للألم. ولكن لا ينصح باستعمال المستخلص الخام للنبات لتجنب السمية المصاحبة للتأثير العلاجي. وعليه نأمل اقامة العديد من الدراسات اللازمة لتحديد مكونات النبات المسئولة على العديد من التأثيرات الفارماكولوجية المفيدة. Abstract Cestrum nocturnum, locally named “Mesk El-lail” is a garden shrub belongs to the family Solanaceae. Cestrum nocturnum is used as a remedy for different health disorders. The aim of present work was to investigate the pharmacological action of Cestrum nocturnum methanolic extract on behavior; also, the plant was subjected to preliminary toxicity study to evaluate the acute toxic effect of the Cestrum nocturnum extract in mice. Doses used throughout this work, was adapted according to toxicity studies and estimation of the LD50 (1361.8 mg/kg). Irwin test was studied using four different doses (125, 250, 500 and 1000 mg/kg). Data revealed changing in some parameters with an increase in the doses of Cestrum nocturnum extract; parameters observed and reported included alertness, passivity, spontaneous motor activity, touch response, pain response, abnormal gait, grip strength, body posture and palpebral opening. In the present study, spontaneous motor activity was studied using photoelectrical cell test; two doses (250 and 500mg/kg) of Cestrum nocturnum extract were used and data showed decrease in: horizontal; ambulatory non-ambulatory movement; and number of movement of the mice. Elevated Plusmaze was used to investigate the effect of Cestrum nocturnum extract on anxiety and to ensure the effect of Cestrum nocturnum on the motor activity. In present work Cestrum nocturnum did not affect anxiety measure but showed decrease in the motor activity. Cestrum nocturnum did not demonstrate any stress related behavioral alteration in forced Swimming test. In this current study, the analgesic effect of the plant extract was studied in mice using two methods of pain induction: i) thermal method, using Hot Plate for investigation of centrally acting analgesics; ii) chemical method, provoked by acetic acid induced abdominal writhing reflexes for investigation of peripherally acting analgesics. Regarding the peripheral analgesic activity, statistical analysis of the results revealed that the doses of 125, 250, 500 and 1000 mg/Kg of Cestrum nocturnum extract provoked significant peripheral analgesic activity; but data obtained in this work, showed that all the four different doses of Cestrum nocturnum extract which were administered to mice, did not induce any central analgesic activity when compared with the control group. In conclusion, Cestrum nocturnum demonstrated sedative effect and strong dose dependent peripheral analgesic activity; however, it is not recommended to use the crude extract of the plant in order to avoid toxicity that may accompany its clinical use.The plant is rich in active constituents and needs further studies for isolation, investigation and identification of the active constituents which may contribute to its beneficial effects.

Pharmaceutical Evaluation of Some Commercial Brands of Metronidazole 500mg Tablets Marketed in Tripoli Libya

Metronidazole is an antiprotozoal drug which is also effective against anaerobic bacteria. The availability of several brands of Metronidazole tablets in Libyan pharmacies today places health practitioners and a pharmacist in a problem of drug substitution in case of a particular brand is not available. The aim of the present study was the evaluation and comparison of pharmaceutical equivalence of five different Metronidazole coated tablets 500 mg, which are commercially available in the private pharmacies in Tripoli city, produced by various pharmaceutical companies with different trade names. The pharmaceutical quality of five brands of Metronidazole tablets was analyzed using official and unofficial quality control tests prescribed in different Pharmacopoeia including uniformity of weight, thickness, hardness, disintegration time, drug content as well as dissolution rate and assay. Acceptable external features as well as uniformity in diameter and thickness were revealed for all the tablets. The entire selected brands complied with the official specifications for uniformity of weight, hardness and disintegration, they released more than 75% of their drug content within 45 minutes. It can be concluded that all the brands could be regarded as bioequivalent and therefore can be interchanged in the clinical practice; this sort of study is good indicator for the evaluation of the idealness of commercial products and showed the importance of post marketing investigation for the drugs imported and distributed in Libya.

Physical Properties, Antibacterial and Antioxidant Properties of Raw South Africa Shea Butter against Samples from Libyan Market

Vigorous research has been conducted into the phenology of the shea tree, its usage and that of the shea butter extracted from the nuts of the shea fruit. Shea butter is the most valuable product in the Shea tree and its use as raw or in cosmetic and pharmaceutical products was expanded in the last years. The aim was to carry out comparative study between imported South African raw Shea Butter, one sample from Poland and samples from Libyan market on their physical properties (organoleptic), thin layer chromatography (TLC) chromatogram, phytochemical screening and diphenylpicrylhydrazil (DPPH) scavenging activity. As well as antimicrobial screening. Organoleptic test was carried out by comparing color and odor. TLC chromatogram was performed by spotting solution of samples in hexane on TLC plate and eluted twice in hexane: ethylacetate 8:2 to get good separation. Phytochemical screening was performed to determine the presence of carbohydrates (Fehling test), steroids, and triterpens (Salkwiski test). DPPH assay was carried out by spraying TLC sample spots by 0.2% DPPH methanolic solution. Antimicrobial test was conducted on Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus aureus. Mueller-Hinton agar was used with ciprofolxacin as +ve control and DMSO as–ve control. As a result, Shea Butter samples showed wide diversity in color and odor which considered normal except two white samples that might undergo refining process, while spreadability and TLC chromatograms were similar. Samples and control showed presence of carbohydrates, steroids and triterpens. Control and samples had DPPH scavenging activity. Shea Butter control and samples had no antimicrobial activities against P. aeruginosa and S. aureus. arabic 17 English 111
