Abstract

Background: Garcinia cambogia is a herbal remedy extracted from pumpkin like fruit used for treatment of various health conditions. Hydroxycitrate, the principle ingredient of Garcinia cambogia, has been shown to be a powerful lipogenic inhibitor. Blood viscosity regarded as an important factor for many diseases. Many parameters are affecting the blood viscosity such as packed cell volume, fibrinogen and serum cholesterol. Aim of the study: This study was conducted to determine the effects of Garcinia cambogia on blood viscosity profile. Methods: This study was conducted in the Department of Pharmacology, College of Medicine, AL-Mustansirya University from September to December 2009. Twenty healthy male volunteers aged between 20 and 22 years enrolled in this study. Those volunteers randomly assigned equally, in a double-blind manner into two group; group (A) take Garcinia cambogia oral tablets and group (B) take placebo tablets ,the duration of therapy was two weeks. Blood viscosity, packed cell volume, plasma fibrinogen, and serum cholesterol were performed at day one and at the end of 1st and 2nd week of treatment.Results: This study showed that after one week treatment with Garcinia cambogia there was significant reduction in blood viscosity and plasma fibrinogen. Moreover two weeks treatment with Garcinia cambogia produced significant reduction in blood viscosity, plasma fibrinogen and serum cholesterol (P<0.05). An exception was the packed cell volume which is not altered (P>0.05).Conclusion: It can be concluded that Garcinia cambogia favorably affect blood viscosity. Though further clinical studies are recommended, the use of Garcinia cambogia in treatment and prevention of diseases that related to high blood viscosity is promising.

Abstract

ABSTRACTBackground: Elevated salivary viscosity increases the risk for dental caries and periodontal diseases. The aim of this study was to disclose the relationship between salivary viscosity and dental caries as well as gingival disease severity among a group of 20-22 years old dental students. Materials and methods: Forty five dental students of both gender aged 20-22 years at College of Dentistry, University of Baghdad took part in this study. Stimulated salivary samples were collected then taken to the laboratory for measuring salivary viscosity at the Poisoning Consultation/Surgical Specialty Hospital. Dental caries was recorded by lesion severity according to Decayed, Missing and Filled (D1-4 MFS) Index (Mühlemman, 1976). Plaque index PlI (Silness and Löe, 1964) was used for measuring dental plaque thickness while gingival index GI (Löe and Silness, 1963) was used for diagnosis of the gingival disease. SPSS version 18 was used for statistical analysis.Results: Salivary viscosity showed weak non significant correlation with caries experience (P>0.05). However, according to dental caries severity students with severe dental caries recorded higher salivary viscosity than those with moderate caries severity with significant difference in case of DS fraction (m.d.= -0.01, P< 0.05). However, according to DMFS statistical difference was close to the confidence limit (P=0.07). No significant correlation could be found between salivary viscosity and gingival inflammation (P> 0.05). Also regarding severity of gingivitis no significant difference in salivary viscosity was recorded between those with mild and those with moderate gingivitis (P> 0.05). Conclusions: It is recommended that measuring salivary viscosity to be a part of routine dental diagnosis when treating patient with higher dental caries risk. However, further studies are needed to disclose the effect of increased salivary viscosity on gingival health with larger sample size. Keywords: Salivary viscosity, dental caries, gingivitis.

Abstract

The intrinsic viscosity has been studied forseveral polymers which are used in someindustrial applications, such as polyisobutylene oftypes Oppanol B150, 200, and 250 with differentmolecular weights of 2.5, 4.1 and 5.9 milliong/mole, respectively, which dissolved in crudeand gas oil. In addition three types of additivesbrought from Al-Dura refinery, olefin copolymer(OCP), {viscoples-4-677, viscoplex-215496, andLubrizol R 7077} which dissolved in crude oil,and the polymers which is soluble in water suchas polyacrylamide with high molecular weightand xanthan gum with molecular weight 3.7million g/mole where also studied. It was foundthat the intrinsic viscosity of polyisobutylenedecrease as the temperature increase in crude andgas oil. The olefin copolymer (Viscoplex-4-677)showed the same behavior as polyisobutylenewhere it can be used as drag reduction agent. Itwas noted that neutral polymers as well aspolyelectrolytes could be used as drag reductionagent.

Abstract

Background: During pregnancy many physiological, anatomical and biochemical changes take place that affectalmost all body systems. In the oral pregnant women have serious changes such as more sever dental caries.This study was conducted to measure dental caries severity and selected salivary variables (salivary flow rate, PH andviscosity)and to find the relation of dental caries with these salivary variables.Subjects, materials and methods: The study group consisted of 60 pregnant women that were divided into threeequal groups according to trimester (20 pregnant women in each trimester).They were selected randomly from theMaternal and Child Health Care Centers in Baghdad city, the age range was 20-25 years. In addition to 20 unmarriedwomen as a control group and matched with age. Stimulated salivary samples were collected .Then salivary flowrate, pH and viscosity were measured. Dental caries severity was recorded by using Decay, Missing and Filled index(D1-4MFS) using the criteria described by Manjie et al, (1989). Plaque index system by Silness and Löe, (1964) was usedfor measuring dental plaque thickness. For measuring dental calculus the calculus index component of theperiodontal diseases index (PDI) by Ramfjord (1959) was used.Results: Results of the current study revealed that dental caries parameter represented by (DMFT ,DMFS,DS and MS)were higher among pregnant than non –pregnant women with significant differences (p<0.05) for DMFT,DMFS andDS also all grades of lesion severity(D1-4)were higher among pregnant than non –pregnant women withnonsignificant differences(p>0.05).Almost all dental caries parameter were higher in the 2nd trimesters with highlysignificant difference (p<0.01) for D1,DS ,DMFS and DMFT among four groups .Concerning oral cleanliness both plaque and calculus indices recorded higher values among pregnant than nonpregnantwith highly significant difference for both (p<0.01). Values were higher during 2nd trimester with highsignificant and non-significant differences among four groups .Regarding the relations of dental caries with oralcleanliness ,it was found that all dental caries parameters recorded positive correlations with both plaque andcalculus indices with significant and highly significant relations Regarding salivary variables ,results revealed thatsalivary flow rate was higher among pregnant (especially in the 2nd trimester)than non-pregnant women but withnon-significant difference (p>0.05).On the other hand salivary PH value was lower among pregnant than nonpregnantwomen with highly significant difference (p<0.01)among them. Salivary PH was lowest in the 2nd trimesterwith highly significant difference (p<0.01) among four groups .Also Salivary viscosity was higher among pregnant thannon-pregnant women with highly significant difference (p<0.01) and it recorded higher mean value in the 3rdtrimester with highly significant difference among four groups (p<0.01). Salivary PH recorded inverse relation withalmost all dental caries parameters with significant relations with D4, MS and highly significant relations with DS,DMFSand DMFT ,while salivary flow rate and salivary viscosity revealed non-significant relations with dental cariesparameters (p>0.05).Conclusion: Dental caries severity was higher among pregnant women probably due to the effect of pregnancyitself on oral hygiene (higher plaque and calculus indices) and salivary variables (increased salivary acidity andviscosity).Therefore, intensive education and preventive programs should be directed for pregnant women

Abstract

The commercial process of heterogeneously catalyzed biodiesel production process is in its final steps due to its advantages over the old homogeneously catalyzed one, and in order to provide an economic and fast way to investigate the vegetable oil conversion into biodiesel, a relation between conversion and a parameter that can be easily measured like viscosity is developed in this paper. The variation of viscosity with increasing conversion was proved to be exponential.an equation was developed to predict conversion from dynamic viscosity values based on the experimental data. A conversion of 91% was obtained at 60 oC reaction temperature, 12:1 methanol to oil molar ratio, 600 rpm in 2 hours of reaction time. The method reported in this paper is meant to save time and money since the most widely used chromatography methods are expensive and time consuming.

Abstract

Background and objective: Prevention of bacterial adhesion is an attractive target for the development of new therapies in the prevention of bacterial infection. The aim of this study is to investigate the effects of pomegranate peel extract, vitamin C, combination of pomegranate peel extract and vitamin C & gemifloxacin on adhesion of E.coli to uroepithelial cells. Methods: This study was conducted in the Department of Pharmacology, college of Medicine, AL-Mustansirya University in 2009. Twenty patients with peripheral vascular diseases enrolled in this study. Those patients randomly allocated equally into two groups; group (A) received aspirin oral tablets 300 mg/day and group (B) received aspirin oral tablets 300 mg/day plus Garcinia cambogia oral tablets 500mg/day. The duration of therapy was two weeks. In this study, measurements were done for total blood viscosity, packed cell volume, serum fibrinogen, and serum cholesterol, before treatment as control and after one and two weeks of treatment.Results: After 2 weeks treatment with aspirin there was significant reduction in plasma fibrinogen (p < 0.05). Combined aspirin and Garcinia Cambogica treatment for 2 weeks produce significant reduction in all blood viscosity parameters (p<0.05) except the packed cell volume which was not affected (p >0.05).Conclusion: Aspirin and Garcinia cambogia produced significant and better effects than aspirin alone on blood viscosity.
