PHARMACOGNOSY GLYCOSIDES, B PHARM SECOND YEAR, RCPIPER

  1. 1. glycosides
  2. 2. Organic natural compounds present in a lot of plants and some animals, these compounds upon hydrolysis give one or more sugars (glycone) moieties and non sugar (aglycone) moietyd Glycoside=sugar group+ nonsugar group (glycone) (aglycone or genin) Glycone and aglycone are linked by glycosidic linkage defination
  3. 3. Glycosidic linkage is formed between – OH group of sugar and –H group of non sugar moieties OR other sugar with loss of water molecule glycoside bond glycoside=glycone{---o---}aglycon
  4. 4. Sugar in glycosides is mostly beta-D glucose but other sugars like galactose, mannose, rhamnose, digitoxose can present. Glycosides can be alpha or beta but plants contains only beta glycosides therapeutic effect of glycosides is only due to aglycon part only and suger moiety facilitate absorption of glycoside, transportation of aglycone to site of action . so glycosides are hydrolysed to give aglycon part for action
  5. 5. Glycosides have therapeutic effect in human and animals as they are used in traditional and modern medicines as cardio tonic, purgative, analgesic, anti- rheumatic, demulcent ,and many other uses.
  6. 6. Classification 1-classification based on type of aglycone in glycoside Anthraquinone or anthracene glycoside Sterols or cardiac glycoside Saponin glycoside Cyanogenic glycoside Isothiocynate glycoside Coumarins and furanocoumarins Aldehyde glycoside phenol glycoside Steroidal Miscellaneous glycosides
  7. 7. 2-classification based on type of sugar (glycone) part glucose- glucoside Rhamnose –rhamnoside Digitoxose-digitoxoside Glucose and rhamnose-glucorhamnoside Rhamnose and glucose-rhamnoglucoside
  8. 8. 3-classification based on type of linkage between glycone and aglycone Linkage between –OH group of glycone and –H group of RADICALS LIKE –CH,-OH,-SH,-NH of aglycone. glycoside is named by perfix like C-glycoside,-sugar linked to carbon atom of aglycone N-glycoside,- sugar linked to nitrogen atom of aglycone O-glycoside,- sugar linked to oxygen atom of aglycone S- glycoside- sugar linked to sulfur atom of aglycone 4-classification based on there use Cathartics, cardio tonics, analgesics, anti-rheumatics, anti- ulcer etc
  9. 9. Physical & chemical properties Colorless, solid, amorphous, nonvolatile (flavonoid- yellow, anthraquinone-red or orange.) Give positive reaction with Molisch's and Fehling's solution test (after hydrolysis). They are water soluble compounds, insoluble in organic solvents Most of them have bitter taste (except: populin, glycyrrhizin, stevioside)
  10. 10. Odorless except saponin (glycyrrhizin).  when a glycosides has a lot of sugars its solubility in water decrease. Glycosides hydrolyzed by using mineral acids and temperature or by using enzymes
  11. 11. General extraction method of glycosides Sta-otto method The drug containing glycoside is finely powdered and subjected to successive extraction in a soxhlet apparatus with alcohol or suitable solvent.  first take drug containing glycoside, finely powdered that, and it is extracted with alcohol or water by using soxhlet apparatus.  After extraction, collect the extract and treat with lead acetate to precipitate tannins
  12. 12. after that filter it and to the filtrate pass H2S gas, to precipitated excess of lead acetate and convert it to ppt of lead sulphide as this is toxic.  Now the extract again filter. The filtrate is subjected to fractional crystallization, distillation or chromatography gives pure component And molecular structure of component is determined by the spectrophotometer, Ultra Red assays, Infra red , NMR and mass spectroscopy etc.
  13. 13. Saponins glycosides They contain aglycon part sapogenin. harmful safogenins are called sapotoxins. This aglycone part have foaming action when shaked with water and yields colloidal solution. They are considerd as haemotoxic because they causes haemolysis of erythrocytes, hence some of them used as fish poisons Saponins are categorized in to two groups 1-steroidal saponins(tetracyclic triterpenoid saponins) 2-pentacyclic triterpenoid saponins
  14. 14. Chemical tests for saponin glycosides Haemolysis test-a drop of blood on slide was mixed with few drops of aq. Saponin solution,RBCs becomes ruptured in presence of saponins Foam test- to 1gm of drug add 10-20 ml of water, shake for few min, formation of froth which persist for 60-120 seconds
  15. 15. Liquorice roots
  16. 16. Liquorice roots Synonyms Glycyrrhiza, mulethi, yasti, marathi- jestha madhu Biological source- It consist dried ,unpeeled roots and stolons of Glycyrrhiza glabra linn Family –leguminosae It should contain not less than 3% of glycyrrhinic acid.

  206. 206. traditional Western pharmacognosy focused on the investigation and identification of medically important plants and animals in the terrestrial environment, although many marine organisms were used in traditional Chines medicines. research into the chemistry of marine organisms is relatively unexplored and represents a vast resource for new medicines to combat major diseases such as cancer, AIDS or malaria Research typically focuses on sessile organisms or slow moving animals because of their inherent need for chemical defenses. Standard research involves an extraction of the organism in a suitable solvent followed by either an assay of this crude extract for a particular disease target or a rationally guided isolation of new chemical compounds using standard chromatography techniques..
  207. 207. Marin sources are used to find novel drugs in treatment of human ailments Marin organism contains secondary metabolites useful as antimicrobial, antiviral, anticancer,anti- inflammatory, neurophysiological, cardiovascular and many more. Many of these species contains toxic compounds

CFP is associated with consumption of coral reef fish from tropical and subtropical waters in the Pacific and Indian Oceans and the Caribbean sea. Ciguatoxin is produced by Gambierdiscus toxicus, a type of dinoflagellate, that are eaten by big coral reef fish, Ciguatoxin usually accumulates in skin, head, viscera, and roe of the fish. Toxic symptomes are neurological,cardiovascular, gastrointestinal like respiratory depression, bradycardia.
  226. 226. Palytoxin it is an intense vasoconstrictor, and is considered to be one of the most toxic non- peptide substances known. produced by several marine pylothia species and can be found in many more species due to accumulation. Because palytoxin affects every cell in the body, the symptoms are very different for the various routes of exposure
  227. 227. Red tide toxins ( paralytic shell fish toxins) These shellfish are filter feeders and, therefore, accumulate neurotoxins, called saxitoxin, produced by microscopic algae. these algae change colour of sea water as red water or red tides. They contain peridinin , a red colour pigment. Human toxicity and mortality can occur after ingestion of these animals, but toxicity is also seen in wild animal populations. shellfish poisonings are water-insoluble, heat and acid-stable, and ordinary cooking methods do not eliminate the toxins marin toxins have yet not been used in clinical medicines

  347. 347. Indian traditional system of medicines
  348. 348. Ayurveda Ayurveda is a Sanskrit word, derived from two roots: ayur, which means life, and veda, knowledge. Knowledge arranged systematically with logic becomes science. Ayurveda is the science of life It has its root in ancient vedic literature and encompasses our entire life, the body, mind and spirit. It is the earliest health care system of India beginning over 5,000 years ago.
  349. 349. Purusha/Prakruti According to Ayurveda, every human being is a creation of the cosmos, the pure cosmic consciousness, as two energies: male energy, called Purusha and female energy,Prakruti. Purusha is choiceless passive awareness, while Prakruti is choiceful active consciousness. Prakruti is the divine creative will. Purusha doesn't take part in creation, but Prakruti does the divine dance of creation called leela.
  350. 350. In creation, Prakruti is first evolved or manifested as supreme intelligence, called mahat. Mahat is the buddhiprincipal (individual intellect) which further manifests as self identity, called ahamkara, which is ego. Ahamkara is influenced by three basic universal qualities: satva, rajas and tamas. Satva is responsible for clarity of perception. Rajas causes movement, sensations, feelings and emotions. Tamas is the tendency towards inertia, darkness, heaviness, and is responsible for periods of confusion and deep sleep.
  351. 351. Manifestation of Creation From the essence of satva the five senses are created: the ears to hear, skin to perceive touch, eyes to see, the tongue to taste, and the nose, to smell. The essence of rajas is manifested as the five motor organs: speech, hands, feet, genitals and the organs of excretion.
  352. 352. The mind is derived from satva, while rajas is manifested as prana, the life force. The tamasic quality is also responsible for the creation of tan matra, the subtle elements, and from whom the five basic elements are manifested. They are space, air, fire, Water and earth. It is from pure consciousness that space is manifested.
  353. 353. Mental Constitution Vedic philosophy classifies human nature into three basic qualities: satvic, rajasic and tamasic. These individual differences in psychological and moral dispositions and their reactions to socio-cultural and physical environments are described in all the classic texts of Ayurveda. Satvic qualities imply essence, reality, consciousness, purity and clarity of perception which are responsible for goodness and happiness. All movements and activities are due to rajas. It leads to the life of sensual enjoyment, pleasure and pain, effort and restlessness. Tamas is darkness, inertia, heaviness and materialistic attitudes. There is a constant interplay of these three gunas (qualities) in the individual consciousness, but the relative predominance of either satva, rajas, or tamas is responsible for individual psychological constitution.
  354. 354. Vata, Pitta and Kapha: the Three Doshas The structural aspect of the body is made up of five elements, but the functional aspect of the body is governed by three biological humors. – Ether and air together constitute -vata; fire and water,- pitta; water and earth,- kapha. Vata, pitta and kapha are the three are biological components of the organism. They govern psycho-biological changes in the body and physio-pathological changes too. Vata-pitta-kapha are present in every cell, tissue and organ.
  355. 355. In every person they differ in permutations and combinations. The sperm is the male seed, and the ovum is the female egg. They also contain vata-pitta-kapha (VPK). Bodily vata-pitta-kapha changes according to diet, life style and emotions. The sperm gets influenced by the father's lifestyle, diet and emotions, and the ovum by the mother's. At the time of fertilization, when a single sperm enters a single ovum, individual constitution is determined.
  356. 356. According to Ayurveda, there are seven body types: mono-types (vata, pitta or kapha predominant), dual types (vata-pitta, pitta-kapha or, kapha-vata), equal types, (vata,pitta and kapha in equal proportions). Every individual has a unique combination of these three doshas. To understand individuality is the foundation of healing according to Ayurveda, "The Science of Life".
  357. 357. The Qualities of the Three Doshas The three Doshas possess qualities and their increase or decrease in the system depends upon the similar or antagonistic qualities of everything ingested. Vata is : dry, cold, light, mobile, clear, rough, subtle Pitta is : slightly oily, hot, intense, light, fluid,free flowing, foul smelling. Kapha is: oily, cold, heavy, stable, viscid, smooth, soft Both Vata and Pitta are light and only Kapha is heavy. Both Vata and Kapha are cold and only Pitta is hot. Both Pitta and Kapha are moist and oily and only Vata is dry. Anything dry almost always increases Vata , anything hot increases Pitta and anything heavy , Kapha.
  358. 358. Seats of Doshas Vatha Adharangam Lower part of the body Pitta Madhyangam Middle part of the body. Kapha Urdhwangam Upper part of the body - See more at: http://www.nagarjunaayurveda.com/ayurveda-basics-principles.aspx#sthash.97ESUctd.dpuf
  359. 359. The Seven Dhatus The word dhatu comes from the root word dha which means basis or foundation. In Ayurvedic medicine, the structural components that nourish the body are called dhatus or tissue levels. There are seven primary sapta dhatus : • rasa – plasma tissue, lymph • rakta – blood, red blood cells • mamsa – muscle • meda – adipose tissue, fat • asthi – bone and cartilage • majja – nerve, marrow, connective tissue • shukra/artava – male and female reproductive system Problems that occur in the dhatus are: • Insufficient nourishment • Over nourishment • Structural damage
  360. 360. the Disease Process According to Ayurveda, health is a state of balance between the body, mind and consciousness. Within the body, Ayurveda recognizes the three doshas, or bodily humors vata, pitta and kapha; seven dhatus, or tissues, plasma, blood, muscle, fat, bone, nerve, and reproductive; three malas, or wastes; feces, urine and sweat; and agni, the energy of metabolism. Disease is a condition of disharmony in any of these factors.
  361. 361. The root cause of imbalance, or disease, is an aggravation of dosha, vata-pitta-kapha, caused by a wide variety of internal and external factors. According to the attributes of these different etiological factors the bodily humors become aggravated and start to accumulate at their respective sites. Vata tends to accumulate in the colon, pitta in the intestines and kapha in the stomach. the accumulated dosha reaches a state of overflowing the original site and spreads throughout the body. The aggravated dosha then enters and creates a lesion in a specific weak tissue where pathological changes are manifested in the organ or system.
  362. 362. Chikitsa, Disease Management Ayurveda says that to restore health we must understand the exact quality, nature and structure of disease, disorder, or imbalance. The body has its own intelligence to create balance. and we are helping in that process. There are four main classifications of management of disease in Ayurveda: shodan, or cleansing; shaman or palliation;(specialised medical care for people with serious illnesses) rasayana, or rejuvenation; ( To restore to an original or new condition) and satvajaya, or mental hygiene.
  363. 363. Ayurveda and Relationships According to Ayurveda, our life is a relationship; the relationship between you and your spouse, girlfriend and boyfriend, and parents and children. Equally important is the relationship with yourself, your relationship between the body, mind and consciousness, and the inner relationship between vata-pitta-kapha. These relationships are life, and Ayurveda is a healing art which helps bring clarity in relationships. Clarity in relationships brings compassion, and compassion is love, therefore love is clarity. Without this clarity, there is no insight. Ayurveda is an art of insight which brings harmony, happiness, joy and bliss in our daily life, in our relationships, and in our daily living. Ayurveda, can definitely bring longevity to life. It can bring a quality of consciousness, such that one can get insight to deal with one's inner life, one's inner emotions, one's inner hurt, grief and sadness. Ayurveda is a total healing art.
  364. 364. Preparation and standardization Asavas,Arishtas
  365. 365. Asava and arishtas -are liquid ayurvedic preparations or self generated herbal fermentations. Asavas prepared by direct use of fresh herbal juices or herbs soaked in water Arishtas are prepared with decoction of herbs in boiling water Both have sweet test, alcoholic smell
  366. 366. Powder herbs are soak in herbal juice or decoction in presence of sugar or jaggaery for specific period of time. Fermentation is brought by addition of dhataki, dhaay ke phool( woodfordia fruticosa) flowers. fermentated alcohol facilitate extraction of active constituents in herbs and also act as preservative. Both asva and arishta contains up to 12 % alcohol and hence called medicinal wines.
  367. 367. Preparation of Asava Boil required quantity of water. Add sugar or honey or jaggery, cooled and transferred to wooden vessel.then add powderd drug mentioned in formula. Cover vessel with lid and edges are sealed with seven consecutive layers of clay smeared cloth.vessel is kept in basment for specified period of time, after that vessel is removed ,liquid is decanted or filtered. Asava can be stored for any length of time in well stoppered glass bottle. E,g, kumariasava, lauhasava Characterstic-  filtered final asava should not contain any particle of sediment Taste should not be sour Should have charecterstic odour of fermented liquid If any growth of mould is obsereved , reject immediately  mix equal quantity of water and asava before consumption
  368. 368. Preparation of Arishta Prepare decoction of crude drug in potable water. filter it and transfer to wooden pots. Wooden pots should be fumigated with pimply churna and also smeared with ghee before addition of parent material or sugar. Then add sugar, honey, jaggery to decoction. Now add dravas, other powder ingredients and dhataki pushpa if mentioned. close vessel with lid and seal edges with clay smeared cloth of seven layers. place vessel in basement ( underground cellar) all under heap of paddy to ensure constant atmospheric temperature during fermentation. after specified period of 7-10 days , remove pot and decant fluid. After 2-3 days when particle of sediment is settled down arishta is botteled.arishta can be stored for any length of time in well stopped glass bottle sumption
  369. 369. Charecterstics- Filtered final arishta should not contain any particle of sediment The taste should not be sour Should have characteristic odour of fermented liquid If any growth of mould is observed reject immediately  mix equal quantity of water and arishta befor con

  375. 375. Tailas
  376. 376. Taila is liquid ayurvedic prepararation E,g. Anu taila, Kanak taila, Narayan taila Preparation of taila- Preparation of taila contains three components- drava(liquide in the form of swarasa),kalka( fine paste of drug) , sneha drava( taila). Unless otherwise indicated in text , kalka, sneha and drava are taken in 1,4.16 parts respectively. kalka and drava are mixed together. Sneha is then added boiled and stirred to obtained desired paka i.e. mrudu paka ( useful for nasya) ,madhyam paka( useful for pana or vasti) and khara paka(useful for abhyanga).
  377. 377. Exception to this rule are If no drava is prescribed; 4 parts of water is added to one part of sneha, the kalka is 1/4th of weight of sneha. If number of drava are 4 or less than 4; each drava has to be taken 4 times the weight of sneha. If drava are more than 4; each drava will be equal in weight to sneha. If no kalka is prescribed in formula then drugs of swarasa may be used as kalka which should be 1/4th of sneha.
  378. 378. Characteristics  taila will have colour , odour, consistancy of oil used. Taila should be preserved in bottle  taila should be taken with anupan( vehicle) Taila should be used within 16 months
  379. 379. Standerization of taila 1 Colour 2 Smell 3 Appearance 4 Touch Oily 5 Clarity 6 Specific gravity 7 Acid value mg/gm 8 Saponfication value 9 Iodine value gm/100gm
  380. 380. Churna
  381. 381. Churna is solid ayurvedic preparation of powder of drugs with often taken with some anupan like milk, ghee, honey. fine the powder the better its therapeutic effect Preparation- Make powder of crud drug and sieve through cloth, or mechanical shifter. If there is more than one drug each drug should be separately powdered, sieved and weighed. finally mix all the powders well together. if salt , sugar, camphor is mentioned then it should be powdered and added separately at end. Charecters- Powder should be fine at least of 80 mesh size It should be kept in air tight container It should be used within 6 months.
  382. 382. Standerization of churna 1 Study of organoleptic characters i. Colour ii. Odour iii. Taste 2 Determination of physico-chemical parameters  Moister content  Total ash  Acid insoluble ash  Water soluble ash  Water soluble extractive  Alcohol soluble extractive  Crude fiber contents
  383. 383. 3 Quantitative estimation of selected phyto- constituents Total alkaloids 4 Evaluation of Churna  Powder fineness  Bulk density  Tap density  Angle of repose  Compressibility  Hausner ratio 5 Determination of Ph 6 Establishing the safety pertaining to Heavy metals & Microbial load
  384. 384. Bhasma
  385. 385. Bhasma is solid ayurvedic preparation in which metals, minerals and animal products are brunt to ash. they are generally white, pale yellow, black or red. eg. Suvarnabhasma, pravalbhasma,launhbhasma, shankhbhasma Preparation- Bhasma is prepared by two stage method i.e shodhana and marana 1 shodhana- it is very first stage of metal purification called shodhana. shodhana eliminates harmful matter, modifies or converts undesirable properties to desirable enhanced therapeutic action. it involves immersion of metal sheets in taila, gomutra or dukdha(milk)
  386. 386. 2 marana- in this method purified drug is put in to stone morter ( khalva) and grounded with specified metal, mineral and animal part for specified period of time. then small cakes are made( cakrikas) and dried under sunlight. Dried cakes are placed in single layer in mud tray and closed with another tray and sealed by clay smeared with cloth of seven consecutive layers. In the ground pit of appropriate size is dug. Half of pit is filled with dried cow dung cakes. then above processed clay tray is placed in it and pit is again packed with cow dung cake. Fire is lit from all sides and middle of pit. After specified burning , it is allowed to cool at room temperature. Clay tray is removed and seal broken. Contents are taken out and finely powdered. The final bhasma should be preserved in airtight earthen container. Characterstics- Final bhasma should be free from metallic luster Bhasma when rubbed between fingers should be so fine so as to get easily into lines of finger In water bhasma should float on surface
  387. 387. Standardization of bhasma Organoleptic characters Sound : The Bhasma should have imperceptible sound on grinding the Bhasma between teeth. Colour : depends Touch - Soft ~ Imperceptible coarseness in the Bhasma Taste - The Bhasma should be tasteless Odour - The Bhasma should be odourless
