INVESTIGATION OF HEPATOPROTECTIVE ACTIVITY OF FICUS RETUSA (MORACEAE)
N. Jaya Raju,N. Sreekanth
International Journal of Research in Ayurveda and Pharmacy , 2011,
Abstract: Ficus retusa (Moraceae) is distributed through out Western peninsula and also found in Chota Nagpur, Bihar, Central India, Andamans, Sundribuns, Malaya islands and Australia. In Sanskrit, it is known as ‘Kantalaka’, ‘Kshudra’ and in Telugu it is well known as ‘Yerrajuvvi’. Ficus leaves of ethyl acetate and methanolic extracts (100, 200 and 400 mg/kg) was prepared and tested for its hepatoprotective effect against carbon tetrachloride induced in rats. Alteration in the levels of biochemical markers of hepatic damage like SGPT, SGOT, ALP, bilirubin were tested in both treated and untreated groups. Carbon tetrachloride has enhanced the SGPT, SGOT, ALP and bilirubin levels. Treatment with ethyl acetate extract of Ficus retusa leaves has brought back the altered levels of biochemical markers to the near normal levels in the dose dependent manner SGOT (213.1± 1.25, 198.2± 3.45, 180.6 ± 2.05), SGPT(195.1±2.22, 168.4±1.36, 112.6±3.24), ALKP(215.6±4.60, 202.3±2.45, 195.1±3.20) and T.B(1.24±0.01, 1.05±1.08, 0.96±0.13) levels respectively. Though both the extracts were recorded with significant hepatoprotective activity with same “p” value (p<0.001). Which were significant protective activity in groups treated with FR and silymarin. It was concluded from the study that ethyl acetate and methanolic extracts of FR possess hepatoprotective activity against CCl4 induced hepatotoxicity in rats.
EVALUATION OF ANTI-INFLAMMATORY ACTIVITY OF FICUS RETUSA (MORACEAE)
N. Jaya Raju,N. Sreekanth
International Journal of Research in Ayurveda and Pharmacy , 2011,
Abstract: The study was designed to evaluate the anti-inflammatory effect of leaves of Ficus retusa (Moraceae) in Sanskrit, it is known as ‘Kantalaka’, ‘Kshudra’ and in Telugu it is well known as ‘Yerrajuvvi’. It is also called as “Indian Laurel Fig" of ethyl acetate and methanolic extracts in carrageenan induced albino wistar rats of either sex (175-250g). The anti-inflammatory effects of ethyl acetate extract of Ficus retusa 200, 400 mg/kg p.o were found to be significant (P<0.05) in reducing rat paw oedema induced by carrageenan, where as methanolic extract produced significant reduction of paw oedema at 400 mg/kg p. o. Diclofenac sodium(50 mg/kg) was used as the reference anti-inflammatory agent for comparison. The ethyl acetate extract was highly significant in reducing rat paw oedema.

Investigation of Hepatoprotective Activity of Spondias Pinnata
B. Ganga Rao,N. Jaya Raju
International Journal of Pharma Sciences and Research , 2010,
Abstract: Spondias pinnata (Anacardiaceae) stem heart wood are well known in India as Jangliaam (Hindi), Adavimaamidi, Kondamaamidi (Telugu), Common hog plum, Indian mombin (English) of ethyl acetate and methanolic extracts was prepared and tested for its hepatoprotective effect against carbon tetrachloride induced in rats. Alteration in thelevels of biochemical markers of hepatic damage like SGPT, SGOT, ALP, bilirubin were tested in both treated and untreated groups. Carbon tetrachloride has enhanced the SGPT, SGOT, ALP and bilirubin levels. Treatment with ethyl acetate extract of S. pinnata stem heart wood (100, 200 and 400 mg/kg) has brought back the altered levels of biochemical markers to the near normal levels in the dose dependent manner. This was evident from significant reduction in serum enzyme, SGOT, SGPT, ALP and Total bilirubin (TB).Various pathological changes like centribular necrosis and vacuolization were observed in CCl4 treated rats, which were significant protective activity in groups treated with SP and silymarin. It was concluded from the study that ethyl acetate and methanolic extracts of SP possess hepatoprotective activity against CCl4 induced hepatotoxicity in rats.

Membership of the Library and Information Association of South Africa (LIASA) among library and information science workers in KwaZulu-Natal
Musa Khomo,Jaya Raju
South African Journal of Libraries and Information Science , 2009, DOI: 10.7553/75-2-94
Abstract: A study was undertaken in 2007 among library and information service (LIS) workers in KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) to investigate LIASA membership trends. The objectives of the study were to investigate: 1) the extent to which workers in library and information services in KwaZulu-Natal are members of LIASA; and 2) the reasons for non-membership, if there are substantial numbers of LIS workers who are not members. The purpose of this paper is to report on the main findings of this study. The study surveyed three types of library services in KwaZulu-Natal, namely, academic, public and special libraries with 330 LIS workers participating in the study. A census was done of LIS workers in special libraries and in academic libraries of public higher education institutions in KZN. Simple random sampling was used to select public libraries in KZN for participation in the study. All staff in the selected sample of public libraries were surveyed. A self-administered questionnaire was used to gather the required data from the target population. It was established that a significant number of LIS workers in all three types of libraries surveyed in KZN are not members of LIASA for various reasons. LIASA has been unable to draw significant membership from the support staff category in LIS services despite its constitution claiming to embrace all LIS workers. The study recommends that LIASA market itself more aggressively to increase membership levels particularly in the public library sector and among support staff in all LIS services. It also recommends that LIASA should consider involving itself in the industrial concerns of the LIS sector.
Impact of the digital divide on information literacy training in a higher education context
Segarani Naidoo,Jaya Raju
South African Journal of Libraries and Information Science , 2012, DOI: 10.7553/78-1-46
Abstract: This paper reports on a master’s study undertaken to investigate the impact of the digital divide on information literacy (IL) training of Extended Curriculum Programme (ECP) students at the Durban University of Technology (DUT). Since 1994 the demographics of higher education institutions in South Africa have changed. Today these institutions comprise heterogeneous groups of students, by race, economic background, digital background, etc. and consequently with different levels of literacy, information and otherwise. The problem that this study addressed was the impact of having both digitally advantaged and digitally disadvantaged students in the same information literacy classroom, expecting them to reach learning outcomes without frustrating students from either group. The objective of the study was to investigate the impact of the digital divide on IL training of ECP students at the DUT and to recommend guidelines for teaching and learning of IL that would accommodate both digitally advantaged and digitally disadvantaged students. The study employed a mixed method approach in its research design. Data was collected from ECP students (of 2010) by means of a questionnaire; an interview schedule was used to collect data from Subject Librarians involved in teaching the IL module to ECP students; a separate interview schedule was used to collect data from the ECP Coordinator. Qualitative and quantitative data collected were prepared for analysis by means of content analysis and numerical coding, respectively and then subjected to statistical analysis via SPSS, which produced percentage and frequency distributions to ascertain findings. The findings of the study revealed that the digital divide does impact on IL training in ways such as: slowing down the progress of IL lessons; basic computer skills need to be taught in the IL classroom; and that digitally disadvantaged students find it difficult to follow online lessons while advantaged students already have the expertise to access online information. Based on these findings the study recommended computer literacy training should precede IL training and that various creative teaching and learning methods such as group work, online tutorials, games and interactive websites should be incorporated into IL education to accommodate both digitally advantaged and digitally disadvantaged students in the IL classroom.
