Comparative Action of Sedative Hypnotics on Neurophysiology of Sleep

Journal of Sleep Disorders & Therapy

In spite of tremendous advances in medical science, sleep has not been understood completely. The causes for many of parasomnias are still not evident. Even then these parasomnias are treated with different drugs, one of the major groups among them being sedative hypnotics. The use of sedative hypnotics are always associated with adverse effect, and there is many a times loss of the normal sleep architecture. This causes problems both during drug intake and with the withdrawal of drugs. Hence the need for today is the use of sedative hypnotics with minimum alteration in sleep architecture. The changes in the sleep architecture with the administration of sedative hypnotics can be recorded with the changes in the normal sleep EEG pattern. In this review effort has been made in elaborating the various sleep EEG pattern changes, resulting with the use of different groups of sedative hypnotic drugs with a brief note on their respective mechanism of action and pharmacological properties.

Polyphenols in the Prevention of Acute Pancreatitis: Preclinical Observations

Polyphenols in Human Health and Disease Volume 1, 2014, Pages 427-433

The prevalence of acute pancreatitis, a disease with variable severity, is increasing, posing new challenges for health care providers. To complicate the condition, currently available therapies are limited to supportive measures and to treating complications. Pharmacological agents like antisecretory agents, protease inhibitors, antioxidants, immunomodulators, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, and prophylactic antibiotics have been used with variable degrees of success. However, regular intake of these agents is unsafe as they can possess long-term damage, and this has necessitated the need for non-toxic agents that are both effective and safe. Almost 25 centuries ago, Hippocrates, the father of medicine, proclaimed “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” Exploring the association between diet and health continues even today. Preclinical studies carried out in the recent past have shown that the polyphenols of dietary sources like curcumin, resveratrol, quercetin, genistein, ellagic acid, cinnamtannin B-1 and green tea polyphenols protect against chemical-induced acute pancreatitis in laboratory animals. The present review collates the protective effects of these agents and the mechanism of action responsible for the effect.

Hepatoprotective Effects of Green Tea and its Polyphenols: Preclinical Observations

Polyphenols in Human Health and Disease Volume 1, 2014, Pages 715-721

Green tea is credited to be the second most consumed beverage in the world after water and is one of the most ancient and popular therapeutic beverages. Green tea contains high concentrations of catechins and its regular consumption has long been associated with myriad health benefits against a wide array of diseases that include diabetes, inflammation, clastogenesis, vomiting, diarrhea, cardiac ailments and several types of cancer. More recently, a large number of scientific studies with experimental animals have shown that tea reduces liver injury caused by alcohol, carbon tetrachloride, ischemic-reperfusion, lead, viral hepatitis, phenobarbitol, microcystin, azathioprine, galactosamine and lipopolysaccharide. Additionally, studies have also shown that tea prevents chemical-induced hepatocarcinogenesis. This review summarizes the results related to the hepatoprotective properties of tea and emphasizes the aspects that warrant future research to establish its activity and utility in humans.

Use of Tea (Camellia sinensis [L.] Kuntze) as a Hepatoprotective Agent in Geriatric Conditions

Foods and Dietary Supplements in the Prevention and Treatment of Disease in Older Adults

Camellia sinensis (L.) Kuntze, a plant native to China and Southeast Asia, is globally a very important plant for humans. The black and green teas made from the leaves have been consumed by humans for thousands of years as a stimulant, and tea is today the second most widely consumed beverage after water. Additionally, its habitual consumption has long been associated with health benefits against a wide array of diseases and conditions, including diabetes, inflammation, clastogenesis, vomiting, diarrhea, cardiac ailments, and several types of cancer. More recently, a large number of scientific studies with experimental animals has shown tea to reduce liver injury caused by alcohol, carbon tetrachloride, ischemic reperfusion, lead, viral hepatitis, phenobarbitol, microcystin, azathioprine, galactosamine, lipopolysaccharide, and cypermethrin. Studies have also shown that tea prevents chemical-induced hepatocarcinogenesis. This chapter summarizes the results related to the hepatoprotective properties of tea, and also emphasizes the aspects that warrant future research to establish its utility in geriatric conditions in humans.
