PANACHE LIVE Corals: The medicine cabinets of the 21st century
The genetic diversity found in coral ecosystems is unparalleled and this diversity has proven beneficial for humans through the identification of potentially beneficial chemical compounds and through the development of medicines, both derived from organisms found in coral ecosystems. Many species found in coral ecosystems produce chemical compounds for defense or attack, particularly the slowmoving or stationary species like nudibranchs and sponges. Searching for potential new pharmaceuticals, termed bioprospecting, has been common in terrestrial environments for decades. In fact, nearly half of the medicines in use today have their origins in natural products, mostly derived from terrestrial plants, animals, and microorganisms. However, bioprospecting is relatively new in the marine environment and is nowhere close to realizing its full potential. Creatures found in coral ecosystems are important sources of new medicines being developed to induce and ease labor; treat cancer, arthritis, asthma, ulcers, human bacterial infections, heart disease, viruses, and other diseases; as well as sources of nutritional supplements, enzymes, and cosmetics. The medicines and other potentially useful compounds identified to date have led to coral ecosystems being referred to as the medicine cabinets of the 21st century by some, and the list of approved and potential new drugs is ever growing. However, this focus on coral ecosystems for medical properties is not unique to the 21st century. The unique medical properties of organisms found in coral reefs was recognized by Eastern cultures as early as the 14th century; tonics and medicines derived from seahorse extracts continue to be in high demand for traditional medicines. The gall bladder of several fish species was used in Palauan traditional medicine to treat venomous stings of other marine organisms, such as stonefish. While knowledge and use of some traditional medicines has been lost, there is renewed interest within modern medicine in researching some of these treatments of bone. Rates of rejection are much lower than with artificial grafting materials. Toxins provided by reef creatures are of particular interest in present day pharmaceutical research. Stonefish, sea snakes, box jellyfish, cone shells, and pufferfish contain some of the most toxic compounds presently known to man. These chemical compounds are being studied by researchers, and some have already been used to develop medicines or cosmetics. For example, cone snail neurotoxin is showing promise as a powerful painkiller.
Editorâ€™s Choice Other types of chemical compounds are also proving fruitful. The antiviral drugs Ara-A and AZT and the anticancer agent Ara-C, developed from extracts of sponges found on a Caribbean reef, were among the earliest modern medicines obtained from coral ecosystems. The anti-cancer properties of a number of additional compounds derived from organisms found in coral ecosystems are also being studied. Chemicals derived from Caribbean sea-whip corals have shown skincare, painkiller, and anti-inflammatory properties and a compound derived from a Pacific sponge has lead to testing of over 300 chemical analogs for anti-inflammatory properties. Kainic acid, which is used as a diagnostic chemical to investigate Huntington's chorea, a rare but fatal disease of the nervous system, was isolated from organisms on a Japanese reef. Australian researchers have developed a sun cream from a coral chemical that contains a natural "factor 50" sun block. A research team, including NOAA scientists at the Hollings Marine Laboratory, has discovered new compounds derived from a sea sponge and corals. One compound eats away at the shield bacteria use to protect themselves from antibiotics. The second discovery was compounds that fight some of the worst infectious bacterial strains. Besides being the source of potentially useful chemical compounds, the porous limestone skeleton of corals has been tested as bone grafts in humans. Pieces of coral set into a fracture act as a scaffold around which the healing can take place. The implant, with a low rate of rejection, eventually disappears, absorbed by the new growth. It should be noted that, aside from the compounds mentioned here, there are likely many other compounds under development which have not yet been disclosed to the wider public. It is safe to say that the published research is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the pharmaceutical possibilities presented by compounds derived from creatures found in coral ecosystems, including the corals themselves. Thus, it is nearly impossible to predict what the future economic benefits of bioprospecting will be, as more potentially valuable medical compounds are isolated from organisms found in coral ecosystems. This aspect of reef value was not incorporated into the estimated $5.5 billion total global value of coral reef biodiversity, but is certainly both a consideration for the economic value of coral reefs and the costs to society if reefs are lost.

SOME OF THE PHOTOGRAPHS OF VARIOUS EVENTS:
Self Defense Pharmaceuticals
Pharmaceuticals for self defense may seem a bit weird to hear for the first time, but before you start imagining hitting someone with pills or threatening them with a spatula, read on.... Spray & Foam aerosols: 1) CN which is an abbreviation for chloroacetophenone was used by the military and police departments in the 60s and 70s, but is not used much anymore. This product is not really a gas, but rather crystals suspend in liquid and placed under pressure to create a vapor. Tear gas products such as MACE have proven to be less effective against violent attackers, especially those under the influence of narcotics and alcohol. Additionally, these tear gas products have a fairly slow reaction time of three to thirty seconds. 2) CS is short for orthochlorobenzalmalononitrile. It is a micro-pulverized irritant. It irritates the mucous membrane of the nose, throat, eyes, and the skin in high concentrations. It works better than CN, but is not readily available to the public. Both of these chemicals sprays can be toxic and cause serious vomiting, and choking. CN and CS are not all that effective against dogs because they lack lactimal glands. 3) OC is short for oleoresin capsicum, which is extracted from chili peppers and is commonly called Pepper Spray. This product is the most widely sold today and the spray of choice for police since 1977. Pepper spray is generally regarded to be the most distressing to experience, but it must be sprayed directly in the eyes or inhaled to be most effective. The product is an oily liquid that is not very soluble in water. The strongest concentrations are 15% active ingredients and rated at least two-million scoville heat units. The high scoville heat rating is more important than the percentage of ingredients. Direct facial contact and inhalation of the spray will induce coughing, choking, and nausea, as well as dilation of the eye capillaries resulting in temporary blindness. The mucous membranes will swell causing breathing difficulties and causing the assailant to be temporarily incapacitated. Skin contact will cause a burning sensation, which is further aggravated by rubbing the area. A one second burst can affect an attacker for up to 45 minutes without causing permanent damage. other ingredient is an invisible dye, which penetrates the skin cells and remains on the face, undetected by the attacker for up to two days. When the police find the offender, who will more than likely deny the offense, they can shine an ultra violet light on his face that will make the evidence of his guilt glow iridescent green. In India: Recently a Karnataka pharmacist has devised a protective ring which he says will sting any person attacking a woman like a honey bee.
Cover Story "The gruesome (December 16) gang-rape in New Delhi last year prompted me to devise a safety ring that can be worn by women on their right index finger to defend themselves against a potential rapist or killer," device inventor Imran Khan told IANS here. What makes 30-year-old Khan's 'Sting Bee' silver ring a reliable armour for self defense is a liquid chemical compound (Capsaicin) in the head of the ring, which on releasing from its micro tank, weakens an offender and immobilizes him from attacking or assaulting any girl or woman. As Capsaicin is four times hotter than Bhut Jolokia (pepper) and 300 times more spicy than Guntur red chillis (from Andhra Pradesh), it stimulates chemoreceptor nerve endings in skin and causes shooting pain for 45-60 minutes in an offender when injected into his body from the ring's micro tank using a micro pump and a micro needle," Khan said at a preview of the 'Sting Bee'. A RFID (radio frequency identification) tag on top side and a dual lock mechanism prevents misuse of the ring, which can be made of any safe metal. "The device is tamper-proof and easy to operate, as its micro tank with 0.2ml of the drug (Capsaicin) can be injected into even five persons at a time by unlocking it before an assault her and gives the wearer sufficient time to escape," Khan asserted. He has tied up with a Mumbai-based jeweller to source the silver-made rings and with a city-based pharmacy to fill them with the drug concentrate. "A silver-made ring will cost Rs 1,999, excluding tax (5 percent) and delivery charges. It will be made to order on payment and delivered in a week across the country through courier. The price will gradually come done once sales volume picks up," Khan observed. Re-fill of the canister (micro-tank) with Capsaicin will cost Rs 1,000 per fill. Khan has set up a "Save My Sister Charitable Trust" to educate women and promote the device for their safety and security against sexual harassment and anti-social elements. He plans to distribute the ring free to economically deprived women. He has set up a call centre with a helpline number (080-6450-0112) to offer counselling to women in trouble and inform them about the safety ring. "As most women wear finger ring(s) for tradition or fashion, wearing an additional ring for safety should not be problem or burden. A woman wearing our compact ring can feel secure even in an adverse situation and anywhere, anytime," Khan observed.

At the end of the program the students conveyed their feelings towards the training program. They expressed that they had learnt a lot through the training activities. The institution expressed their deep gratitude to the trainees for motivating their students.
â€œPASSIONâ€? Sparkling of the eyes , clenching of the fist Here I come whatever may resist As thou say the paths are jammed I will survive what may exist A desire to get along and sometimes more than that It keeps me alive and yeah sometimes more than that I undergo the anguish, undergo the pain It attempts to break me, but in vain Because somewhere in some corner I know I will survive, no matter what it takes. I encounter the harsh realities but don't surrender to them, Because this passion of mine is evoked time and again, It asks me to strive and fuels me into burning my bad past, I know I will survive and I know I will last. Who we are as people overall, The passion in our hearts and minds says it all A sweet victory kisses you at last People cheer you and indulge you amazingly fast But only you know the moments of strife and solitude past It was only your passionate self that made you last. So to declare at last, in this cycle of fall and rise, Never let your passions face demise, Never burn their effigies, neither sob on their scars Just keep pushing your limits, fueling the sparks All you have to do ,is to keep burning your past. -By Rajan Singh Manipal College of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Manipal University, Karnataka
