The in vitro and in vivo anti-oxidative and anti-diabetic effects of some African medicinal plants and the identification of the bioactive compounds.
This thesis examined the in vitro and in vivo anti-oxidative and anti-diabetic activities of five African medicinal plants which are traditionally used for the treatment of diabetes mellitus viz; Ziziphus mucronata, Cassia ...
Novel epidermal growth factor directed cationic lipoplexes promote in vitro hepatotropic gene targeting.
The need for the improvement in protocols for cellular gene delivery has propelled cytofectin based liposomes as suitable non-viral gene carriers. The amenability of cationic liposomes to modification enables research based ...
Ecophysiological studies of the invasive weed Chromolaena odorata (L.) King and Robinson and its control in KwaZulu-Natal.
Despite increased interest in the control and spread of the alien weed, Chromolaena odorata, little is known of its photosynthetic characteristics under field conditions. The aim of the study was to obtain a better ...

Enzymatic conversion of sterigmatocystin to aflatoxin B1.
The age of Aspergillus parasiticus (1-11-105Wh1) mycelium was found to have an influence on the level of enzymes, responsible for the conversion of sterigmatocystin to aflatoxin B and O-methylsterigmatocystin, present. ...
The design and synthesis of gold nanoparticles and its interaction with mammalian cells in culture.
Cancer is a disease characterized by accelerated cell growth, resulting in healthy tissue being destroyed by the processes of invasion and metastasis. Non-viral gene delivery approaches have been extensively studied as a ...
Receptor targeted gene delivery using folate ligand conjugated cationic liposomes.
Gene therapy has become an important strategy to treat several human diseases, including cancer, viral infections and inherited disorders. In response to this growing trend, a number of gene delivery vectors have been ...
