|Abstract: ||Gum- Bioadhesive delivery of drugs has recently gained prominence as a means of drug administration. Researchers at Kyoto Pharmaceutical University, Kyoto, Japan studied the antidiabetic properties of Prosopis gum alone and as a bioadhesive base for the delivery of Metformin.
Insecticide/Pesticide- Proteinase inhibitors (PIs) from the seeds of Bitter Gourd (Momordica charantia Linn.) were
identified as strong inhibitors of Helicoverpa armigera gut proteinases (HGP). Biochemical investigations showed that
bitter gourd PIs (BGPIs) inhibited more than 80% HGP activity.
