About faculty of Pharamcy

The Faculty of Pharmacy was established in 1975 and is considered the oldest faculty in Libya specialized pharmaceutical sciences. Since its establishment, it aims to contribute to raising the level of health services for citizens in Libya and to start seriously developing pharmaceutical services. It has entered this field on scientific grounds and after more than thirty-eight years, this institution is still providing the community with qualified staff who believe in their role in leading the fields of industry, drug control, and medical analysis. It strives to rationalize the use of medicines and make the most of medicinal herbs and plants. The study began at faculty at in 1976/1975. Studies continued in the old building, which is now occupied by the Faculty of Media and Arts. In 1983, a contract for the construction of a new building for the Faculty of Pharmacy at the University of Tripoli was concluded. It was built on an area of ​​forty thousand square meters “40,000 square meters” south of the University of Tripoli. The Faculty building is considered one of the most beautiful buildings at the university. it was chosen as one of the most beautiful educational buildings in the world, according to a report prepared by the World Organization for Culture and Science "UNESCO". The Faculty is bordered on the east side by the Faculty of Medicine, to form with the Tripoli Medical Center a distinguished model for specialized medical colleges. This institution is still supporting its graduates to become pharmacists of the future and to participate in building Libya.

Screening of Toxoplasma gondii antibodies and Risk factors among Patients in Asabieh City, Libya

Toxoplasmosis is a zoonotic disease caused by Toxoplasma gondii. Risk factors include consumption of undercooked meat, raw vegetables, and unfiltered water. Aim: This study aims to screen antibodies titer in toxoplasmosis positive patients in Asabieh city in Libya and to screen risk factors associated with infection in this area. Study design: Data were collected using a cross-sectional design. Study Duration and Location: Data were collected from patients of different ages and gendersattending Ali Omar Ascar hospital, Asabieh, during the period of January 2017 to January 2018. Methodology: A single blood sample was collected from 150 patients and spun at 3000 rpm to obtain serum. The serum samples were analysedto detect anti-Toxoplasma IgG and IgM antibodies using enzyme linked immunosorbant assay (ELISA, BioChec) kit according to manufacturer’s instructions. A self-structured questionnaire was used to obtain information on farm animal’s contact, the process of vegetables washing, meatcooking, Water resource and raw water consumption. Results: The total seroprevalence of toxoplasmosis was 78.6%,out of which IgG and IgM were 68%, and 77.4% respectively. Several risk factors were identified, including daily contact with farm animals (82.6% were +ve, P = .0.01), unfiltered water (61.3% were +ve; P = 0.003). Conclusion: asabieh area showed a high prevalence of toxoplasmosis, and many environmental risk factors associated with the infection as animal hosts, human lifestyle were also identified, that could help to reduce the risk of spreading and transmission of infection among the populations in the future.

دراسة كيمو نباتية و بيولوجية لنبات الفيجل الموزع بليبيا Phytochemical and Biological Screening of Ruta Graveolens L. Growing in Libya

نبات الفيجل (Ruta graveolens) يتبع عائلة (Rutaceae) تم تجميعه من منطقة عين زارة (حولى 15 كيلو متر جنوب طرابلس). جنس Ruta متوطن في منطقة حوض البحر المتوسط يضم حوالي 60 نوع، ينشر على طول حوض البحر المتوسط و في مناطق الحارة من قارة اسيا. في ليبيا يوجد نوعان من هذا النبات و هما R.chalpensis and R.graveolens الأبحاث السابقة على انواع مختلفة تابعة لجنس Ruta اظهرت احتوائها عدة مركبات منها القلويدات، فلافونيدات، الزيوت الطياؤة الجليكوسايدات، الكيومارين و الستيرولس. من خلال الكشف الكيميائي المبدئى تبين ان المستخلص الميثانولى لنبات الفيجل يحوى على: فلافونيدات، جلايكوسيدات، كربوهيدرات، قلويدات، صابونين تانين، كيومارين وستريودات. مادة الروتن Rutin وهي عبارة عن مادة فلافونيدية تم فصلها من مستخلص نبات الفيجل بواسطة عمود الكرماتوغرافيا و تم حساب نسبتها في المستخلص حيث وجدت 2,3%، و تم تقييم المستخلص و مادة الروتن المفصولة من حيث نشاطه المضاد للاكسدة باستعمال طريقة ال DPPH وتبين وجود نشاط ملحوظ كمضاد للاكسدة مقارنة بالمادة القياسية للروتين Rutin .كما اظهر المستخلص الميثانولى للنبات نشاط مضاد لنمو بكتيريا staph aereus بينما لم تظهر مادة الروتن اى نشاط مضاد للبكتيريا، كما لم يظهر المستخلص الميثانولى و مادة الروتن اى نشاط مضاد لفطر الCandida. Abstract: Ruta graveolens (rue) (Family Rutaceae) is locally known as "Fejjil", which was collected from Ain Zara (15Km, south of Tripoli). The genus of Ruta, It features mainly shrubby plants, native to the Mediterranean region. About 60 species in Mediterranean region and temperate Asia; 2 species are found in Libya. R.chalepensis L, and R.graveolens. In this study a preliminary phytochemical screening of the methanol extract of R. graveolens revealed the presence of flavonoids, carbohydrates, glycosides, alkaloids, saponins, tannins, cumarines and steroids. Rutin bioflavonoid was isolated by column chromatography from methanol extract of R. graveolens the calculate quantity and found that the % of rutin in leaves extract was 2.33% w/w. The methanol extract of R. graveolens and isolated rutin were assessed for antioxidant activity using DPPH assay, where it showed significant level of free radical scavenging (antioxidant) activity in comparison with standard rutin. The methanol extract of R. Graveolens showed antibacterial effect against Staphylococcus aeures while isolated rutin showed no activity, also R.graveolens extract has no effect against candida strains.

Comparative assessment of a DNA and protein Leishmania donovani gamma glutamyl cysteine synthetase vaccine to cross-protect against murine cutaneous leishmaniasis caused by L. major or L. mexicana infection

Leishmaniasis is a major health problem and itis estimated that 12 million people are currently infected.A vaccine which could cross-protect people against different Leishmania spp. would facilitate control ofthis disease as more than one species of Leishmania may be present. In this study the ability of a DNA vaccine, using the full gene sequence for L. donovani gamma glutamyl cysteine synthetase (GCS) incorporated in the pVAX vector (pVAXGCS), and a protein vaccine, using the corresponding recombinant L. donovani GCS protein (LdGCS),to protect against L. major or L. mexicana infection was evaluated. DNAvaccination gave transient protection against L. major and no protection against L. mexicana despite significantly enhancing specific antibody titres in vaccinated infected mice compared to infected controls. Vaccination with the LdGCS protected against both species but only if the protein was incorporated into non-ionic surfactant vesicles for L. mexicana. The results of this study indicate that a L. donovani GCS vaccine could be used to vaccinate against more than one Leishmania species but only if the recombinant protein is used. arabic 30 English 176
