    Funded by: University grant commission

    Position: Project Director

    Description: Gynura procumbens leaves have been known to possess high medicinal values and was used to treat illnesses such as eruptive fevers, rash, kidney diseases, migraines, constipation, hypertension, cancer and diabetes mellitus (Perry, 1980). Recently, pharmacological studies have indicated that G. procumbens has anti-inflammatory (Iskander et al., 2002), anti-herpes simplex virus (Jiratchariyakul et al., 2000; Nawawi et al., 1999), anti-hypertensive (Hoe et al., 2007; Kim et al., 2006), anti-hyperlipidemic (Zhang and Tan, 2000), antisterility (Halimah et al., 2008; Pusparanee et al., 2008), and anti-oxidative capabilities (Akowuah et al., 2009; Puangpronpitag et al., 2010). Studies have also shown that n-butanol fraction of G. procumbens leaves methanolic extract possessed blood glucose lowering activity and the possible active chemical constituents from this plant had been isolated and identified to be flavonoids, saponins, tannins and terpenoids (Akowuah et al., 2001, 2002). In addition to a study at National Institute of Pharmaceutical Education and Research, Panjab (India) on ‘Development of potent oral nanoparticles formulation of coenzyme Q10 for treatment of hypertension’ indicates the potential of nano-biotechnology in improving the therapeutic value of molecules like CoQ10, facilitating its usage as first line therapeutic agent. As shown earlier, PAH, asthma and COPD share pathological features, so no drug has potential to deal with these. But using nanoparticles of long VIP analogs, these diseases can be treated. Study at Kyushu University, Japan (Chan et al., 2009) reveals that by using nanoparticle based drug delivery system, improved survival rate was achieved as compare to control group.
