  The diuretic activity of the methanol extract of Ipomoea aquatica was investigated in the Swiss albino mice. A dose dependent diuretic activity of 1.93 and 2.44 of the extract was observed at a dose of 250 mg kg-1 and 500 mg kg-1 body weight, respectively. Good diuretic activity was evident till the fifth hour when mice were orally administrated with the extract at these concentrations. The diuretic activity of the extract was compared with that of the standard drug fursemide at a dose of 500 μg kg-1 body weight. The maximum diuresis observed with both the doses at the first hour of study indicated its rapid onset of diuretic action. The diuretic responses with its electrolyte excretion potency of the extract were highly remarkable in comparison with control animals. The extract, at doses of 250 and 500 mg kg-1 show a dose dependent increase in volume of urine with moderate increase in Na+ and ClB excretion, accompanied by the excretion of K+. In all cases the excretion of electrolytes and volume of urine increased was higher than the standard diuretic, fursemide.

  Two genetically different related forms of human immunodefficiency virus (HIV), a human lentivirus belonging to the lentivirus family, called HIV-1 and HIV-2, have isolated from patients with AIDS. HIV can be transmitted through contaminated blood and blood products; from a mother to her offspring during pregnancy, childbirth or breast feeding; or through sexual contact. Sexual transmission remains by far the predominant mode of transmission. Vertical and blood borne transmission of HIV are highly predictable and very efficient modes. Sexual transmission of HIV, however, appears to be considerably less efficient and highly variable. During the early period after primary infection with HIV widespread of dissemination of the virus and a sharp decrease in the number of CD4+T cell count occurs. The use of CD4 cell count is an important indicator of disease severity of AIDS. The patients infected with AIDS can be attacked by various opportunistic infections such as pneumonia, Mycobacterium avium complex, cytomegalovirus, microsporidiosis and tuberculosis. The degree of intensity of these diseases can be indicated by measuring the level of enzyme like alkaline phosphatase, alanin aminotransferase and aspartate aminotransferase, lactate dehydrogenase and creatine phosphokinase.
