Unformatted text preview: promoted anti-inflammatory activity at 0, 3, and 5 h after induction of inflammation; iii ) The % inflammation in treated samples was not significantly different from that of the C+ group (applied with Bethamethazone+Dexchlorophenamine maleate) during the first two periods of observation; iv) The lowest concentration was the most effective treatment for anti -inflammation; v) The anti-inflammatory activity of the extracts is inversely proportional to time; and vi) All the treatments inhibited the nociception of pain stimulus as exhibited by the delayed latency for paw licking and jumping behaviours of test animals. These findings proved the pharmacological value of Datura metel as a potential source of chemical ingredients for anti-inflammatory drugs, analgesics, and anaesthetics. ENV-P6 IMPACT OF EXCESSIVE IRRIGATION ON WATER POLLUTION OF LOWER PRAVARA BASIN OF AHMEDNAGAR DISTRICT D.G. Thorat Department of Chemistry, Padmashri Vikhe Patil College of Arts, Science and Commerce, Pravaranagar, At/Post: Loni (Kd), Tal-Rahata, Dist-Ahmednagar, Maharashtra, India E-mail: [email protected] This paper presents quality of water samples from pravar a basin in order to find out the magnitude of water pollution. The natural quality of ground water tends to be degraded by human activities and excessive irrigation. Some sampling points were selected for the study. The parameters studied were pH, total hardness, chlorides, sulphates, turbidity, TDS, total alkalinity, iron, copper, magnesium, sodium, potassium and calcium. The ion concentrations were expressed in mg/L. The cations and 2+ 2+ + + anions must be equal to maintain the quality of water. Cations such as Ca , Mg , Na and K are present in ground water in the form of hardness and salinity. The major ions responsible to maintain the quality of ground water are carbonate, bicarbonate, chloride, sulphates, nitrates, phosphates and fluoride. Physico-chemical parameters of water from lower pravara basin of Ahmednagar district were studied. 1...
