Research Article of Research Journal of Pharmacology and Pharmacy Evaluation of the Antioxidant Potential of Artisanal Liqueurs Produced From Fruits of the Caatinga Biome João Victor de Oliveira Alves1*, Francisco Henrique da Silva1, João Carlos de Oliveira Pinto1, Janderson Weydson Lopes Menezes da Silva2, Paloma Maria da Silva1, Irivânia Fidelis da Silva Aguiar1, Katharina Marques Diniz1, Fálba Bernadete Ramos dos Anjos3, Márcia Vanusa da Silva1 1Biochemistry Department, Universidade Federal de Pernambuco, Recife, Pernambuco, Brazil; 2Aggeu Magalhães Institute (IAM) - FIOCRUZ/PE , Brazil; 3Department of Histology and Embryology, Universidade Federal de Pernambuco, Recife, Pernambuco,Brazil Plant extraction is a common practice performed in community with the presence of native species with strong population interest. For many Brazilian regions, extractivism acts as a complement of income for the population. The present work aimed to evaluate artisanal liqueurs produced in local communities of the State of Pernambuco in order to observe the antioxidant potentials present during production stages. For this, trials were performed with dpph and abts radicals. All the liqueurs evaluated showed antioxidant potential, with expressive results through the sequestration of the DPPH radical, comprising values of 50 CI between 0.5 and 2.25. Keywords: Caatinga.

Anti-inflammatory Activity of Saccharum Officinarum Linn (Poaceae) Juice in Animal Models

Research Article of Research Journal of Pharmacology and Pharmacy Anti-inflammatory Activity of Saccharum Officinarum Linn (Poaceae) Juice in Animal Models Agbaje Esther Oluwatoyin, Ayinla Adebola Christina, **Ujomo Tejumade Department Of Pharmacology, Therapeutics & Toxicology, College Of Medicine, University Of Lagos; **Department Of Pharmacology And Therapeutic, University Of Ibadan, Oyo State, Nigeria. Saccharum officcinarum (SOC) juice has been used for treatment and management of several conditions including urinary tract infection, diabetes, constipation, tooth decay and bad breath according to folklore. This study was carried out to explore the anti-inflammatory effects of the juice of Saccharum officinarum in doses of 2.5, 5.0, 10.0 and 20.0 mL/kg using the following models in rats - carrageenan, histamine, serotonin, formalin-induced paw oedema, and cotton-pellet granuloma. Also employing the following models in mice - castor oil-induced diarrhea and xylene-induced ear oedema. Animals were pretreated with aspirin (100 mg/kg; p.o), cyproheptadine (10 mg/kg; p.o.), atropine (1 mg/kg p.o), dexamethasone (5 mg/kg; p.o.) and celecoxib (20 mg/kg p.o.).  Oral administration of SOC juice significantly (p<0.001) reduced the right hind paw circumference induced by carrageenan, histamine, serotonin and formalin compared to control group. Furthermore, it inhibited xylene-induced ear oedema with peak effect at 20 mL/kg, as well as castor oil-induced diarrhea and cotton pellet granuloma with peak effect at 10 mL/kg. The anti-inflammatory activities of SOC were significant (p<0.05) when compared with aspirin, cyproheptadine and dexamethasone. The study revealed the potent anti-inflammatory activities of the juice of S. officinarum. Keywords: Saccharum officinarum, anti-inflammatory, carrageenan, aspirin, histamine, rat ...

Analysis and Impact of Evidence Based Medicine in the Process of Education and Decision Making in Medical Practice

The research was conducted in 2018 in several health institutions (health centers and hospitals) in Sarajevo Canton. The sample was made up of family doctors and other clinical specialties. The research results suggest the doctors in BiH are familiar with the concept of Evidence Based Medicine (EBM) and in their everyday work they apply relevant contemporary knowledge, national and international guidelines for the treatment and disease therapy. The most significant obstacle to more efficient management of medical information and the implementation of EBM in practice is the perception it would require additional time and incur significant cash expenditures to the doctors. In the future, doctors will increasingly be demanded to use advanced tools and modern techniques supporting them to make the most effective treatments on the basis of their own experience.

EXOGENOUS INTOXICATIONSIN THE MUNICIPALITIES OF GERES V-PE

Research Article of Research Journal of Pharmacology and Pharmacy ANALYSIS OF EXOGENOUS INTOXICATIONSIN THE MUNICIPALITIES OF GERES V-PE, FROM 2009 TO 2013 PACHECO ICO1, LOPES LGF1, BEZERRA PB1, FREITAS JMM1, NUNES MGS1, PEDROZA RM1,2 Federal University of Pernambuco (UFPE)1, Federal University of Rio Grande of Norte (UFRN)2 Analyzing the exogenous poisonings in the municipalities of GERES V-PE, in the period 2009 to 2013, from the National System for Notifiable Diseases - SINAN. There was conducted a quantitative, cross-sectional, descriptive and exploratorystudy, from the survey of secondary exogenous poisoning data, recorded inregional SINAN. In SINAN 170 of exogenous poisoningcases were recorded, predominating medicines with 27 % of cases, the main age group was of 15-29 years old, with 32,9 %, and females prevailed with 57,6  %. The weakness for filling is the main limitation of this study there are suggested actions of awareness from the health professionals, becoming evident the health responsibility, giventhe filling of notifications, and the promotion of preventive interventions in most vulnerable populations.
