Abstract: Objectives are to explore recent advances in discovery of new antidiabetic agents using repurposing strategies and to discuss modern technologies used for drug repurposing highlighting diabetic specific web portal. Drugs like Niclosamideethanolamine, Methazolamide, Diacerein, Berberine, Clobetasol, etc. with possibility of repurposing to curb diabetes can be potential late-stage clinical candidates, providing access to information on pharmacology, formulation, and probable toxicity if any. With collaboration of artificial intelligence (AI) with pharmacology, the efficiency of drug repurposing can improve significantly.

Abstract: This work proposes a method that can identify tumour cells present in the human breast with a plasmon-based 3D photonic structure. The plane-wave expansion technique is applied to find the solution of the Helmholtz equation that determines the band structure.  Three signals with frequencies of 0.5, 1.0 and 1.5 THz are allowed to impinge on the structure.  The bandgap analysis suggests that the cell is cancerous if the reflected signal falls within the blue regime. If the signal lies within the violet regime of the spectrum, then this is an indication of a normal cell.

Abstract: Na0.5Bi0.5TiO3 was synthesized by solid state reaction method at a sintering temperature 1200°C for various duration up to 24 hr. The effect of sintering time on microstructure and electrical conductivity was investigated. The grain size increased from 2 to 5.2mm and its distribution broadened with increasing the duration from 1hr to 24 hr. Grain/grain boundary and space charge contributions towards the conductivity were distinctly demonstrated. The temperature and frequency dependent Z and ac conductivity as a function of sintering duration were analyzed correlating with the micro-structural changes to obtain useful information about conductivity and relaxation mechanism.
