|Title:||Gum and Insecticide/Pesticide|
|Abstract:||<b>Gum</b>- 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. <br><br> <b>Insecticide/Pesticide</b>- Proteinase inhibitors (PIs) from the seeds of Bitter Gourd (<b><i>Momordica charantia</i> Linn.</b>) 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.|
