The Journal of Diagnostic Techniques and Biomedical Analysis (JDTBA) keeps you updated on meticulous research and inventions that make a significant contribution in the field of diagnostic techniques and biomedical analysis of diseases & drugs. JDTBA covers all major themes and interdisciplinary aspects pertaining to disease diagnosis, medical instrumentation and biomedical analysis of causative agents and drugs.

JDTBA is a unique "Hybrid Journal" enriched with the benefits of subscription and effectiveness of open access. It accepts novel research, review papers, case reports, clinical trials, commentaries, short communications, letter to editor and diagnostic opinions in its scope. JDTBA encourages rigorous peer review under the supervision of an editor. Thus, ensuring the quality of all the published articles which reflect solid scholarship in their field, and the information contained is accurate and reliable.

Aim and Scope: The journal does not limit but emphasises on diagnostic techniques, disease diagnosis, diagnostic tests, biomedical & clinical sciences, diagnostic microbiology and biomedical analysis of causative agents & diseases.
It also includes developments and innovation in analytical methodology,biomedical imaging and radiology, chemical imaging and radioactive techniques, procedures, computer-aided diagnosis and automation,  medical instrumentation & research.

Journal of Diagnostic Techniques and Biomedical Analysis will be focussing on Current Research in Diagnostic Techniques and Biomedical Imaging, Cancer Detection and Biopsy Research for its upcoming issue.

Anticancer Potential of Plants and Natural Products: A Review

Cancer is one of the leading causes of death and globally the numbers of cases of cancer are increasing gradually. There are several medicines available in the market to treat the various types of cancer but no drug is found to be fully effective and safe. The major problem in the cancer chemotherapy is the toxicity of the established drugs. However plants and plant derived products have proved effective and safe in the treatment and management of cancers. These days most of the research work on cancer drugs is targeted on plants and plants derived natural products. Many natural products and their analogues have been identified as potent anti-cancer agents and day by day the anti-cancer property of various plants is being identified. Here an attempt is being made through this review to highlights the natural products and their analogues established as anti-cancer agents and the new plant species identified with anti-cancer properties either in vivo or in vitro.

Effects of Aqueous Extract of Phyllanthus muellerianus Leaves on Castor Oil-induced Diarrhoeal Rats

Cancer is one of the leading causes of death and globally the numbers of cases of cancer are increasing gradually.

The major problem in the cancer chemotherapy is the toxicity of the established drugs.

Here an attempt is being made through this review to highlights the natural products and their analogues established as anti-cancer agents and the new plant species identified with anti-cancer properties either in vivo or in vitro.Aqueous extract of Phyllanthus muellerianus (Phyllanthaceae) leaves was screened for its constituents. Antidarrhoeal property of the extract at the doses of 12.50, 25 and 50 mg/kg body weight was also evaluated using models, such as castor oil-induced diarrhoeal, intestinal transit and enteropooling. Phytochemical screening revealed the presence of cardenolides (0.33%), cardiac glycosides (0.51%), flavonoids (0.16%), saponins (1.21%), tannins (0.68%) and triterpenes (0.08%), while alkaloids, anthaquinones, phlobatannins and steroids were not detected.

Endoplasmic Reticulum Stress and Related Pathological Processes

The endoplasmic reticulum (ER) plays a pivotal role in lipid and protein biosynthesis as well as calcium store regulation, which determines its essential role in cell function. Hypoxia, nutrient deprivation, perturbation of redox status and aberrant calcium regulation can all trigger the ER stress response, which is mediated through three main sensors, namely inositol requiring element-1 (IRE-1), protein kinase-like ER kinase (PERK) and activating transcription factor 6 (ATF6). This review explores the interaction of ER stress and ER stress-associated pathological processes, including inflammation, apoptosis, aberrant autophagy, mitochondrial dysfunction and hypoxic responses. In addition, the correlation of ER stress with lipid and calcium homeostasis and dysregulation, and its role in disease development is also presented. Improved understanding of ER stress and its cofactors in pathological processes may provide new perspective on disease development and control.
