Effects of methanolic and aqueous extracts of Ipomoea batatas L on mineral contents level (calcium and magnesium) in alloxan-induced diabetic rats.

Imtiaz Mahmood Tahir, Naheed Akhter, Abida Parveen, Huma Mehboob, Sadaf Saleem, Naveed Munir, Syed Muhammad-Ali Shah, Jawad Zaheer, Fahad Said Khan, Sabira Sultana, Muhammad Akram,

In diabetic patients, electrolyte disorders frequently occur with the characteristic changes in minerals like calcium and magnesium etc. Several medicines are used to manage diabetes mellitus but they exert adverse effects. Plants are a valuable alternative to synthetic medicines because they are easily available, economical and have fewer side effects. ... Read more >>

Antiviral potential of medicinal plants against HIV, HSV, influenza, hepatitis, and coxsackievirus: A systematic review.

Muhammad Akram, Imtiaz Mahmood Tahir, Syed Muhammad Ali Shah, Zahed Mahmood, Awais Altaf, Khalil Ahmad, Naveed Munir, Muhammad Daniyal, Suhaila Nasir, Huma Mehboob,

Viral infections are being managed therapeutically through available antiviral regimens with unsatisfactory clinical outcomes. The refractory viral infections resistant to available antiviral drugs are alarming threats and a serious health concern. For viral hepatitis, the interferon and vaccine therapies solely are not ultimate solutions due to recurrence of hepatitis C ... Read more >>

Effect of UDP-Glucuronosyltransferase (UGT) 1A Polymorphism (rs8330 and rs10929303) on Glucuronidation Status of Acetaminophen.

Huma Mehboob, Imtiaz Mahmood Tahir, Tahira Iqbal, Sadaf Saleem, Sofia Perveen, Aboubakker Farooqi,

Interindividual variability in polymorphic uridine diphosphate-glucuronosyltransferase 1A1 (UGT1A1) ascribed to genetic diversity is associated with relative glucuronidation level among individuals. The present research was aimed to study the effect of 2 important single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs; rs8330 and rs10929303) of UGT1A1 gene on glucuronidation status of acetaminophen in healthy volunteers ...

Age-Dependent Hepatic UDP-Glucuronosyltransferase Gene Expression and Activity in Children.

Elizabeth Neumann, Huma Mehboob, Jacqueline Ramírez, Snezana Mirkov, Min Zhang, Wanqing Liu,

UDP-glucuronosyltransferases (UGTs) are important phase II drug metabolism enzymes. The aim of this study was to explore the relationship between age and changes in mRNA expression and activity of major human hepatic UGTs, as well as to understand the potential regulatory mechanism underlying this relationship. Using previously generated data, we ... Read more >>

Genetic polymorphism of UDP-glucuronosyltransferase (UGT2B15) and glucuronidation of paracetamol in healthy population.

Huma Mehboob, Tahira Iqbal, Amer Jamil, Tanweer Khaliq,

Inter individual variability in polymorphic UDP-glucuronosyltransferase (UGT2B15) has been associated with varied glucuronidation level. The present project was designed to determine the genetic polymorphism of UDP-glucuronosyltransferase (UGT2B15) and glucuronidation of paracetamol in healthy (male=59 and female=50) population. The association between genotype (UGT2B15) and phenotype (paracetamol glucuronidation) has been evaluated. According ... Read more >>
