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.

Phytochemical Screening of Methanolic Extract of Five Libyan Date Varieties (Phoenix Dactylifera L.) And Evaluation of Their Antimicrobial Activity

More than 2000 cultivars of Phoenix dactylifera L. are known to grow around the world. Date is an essential fruit in North Africa, and in Libya in particular, it represents an important national food resource. Recently, researchers discovered the medicinal value of different parts of palm tree beside the well known nutritional value of the fruit edible part. In this study five Libyan date seeds (Bestian, Deglet, Abel, Khadrai and Hamrai) were collected from Aljofra region and were screened for phytochemical components and their antimicrobial activity. The phytochemical analysis of methanolic extract of five different Libyan date palm seeds showed the presence of aflavnoids, glycosides, phytosterols, phenolic compound, tannins, and fixed oil, absences of alkaloids and saponine. The susceptibility of bacterial species to five methanolic extracts of Phoenix dactylifera L seeds by cup-cut agar method exhibited Inhibition zones (IZD). That inhibition zone diameters are vary from 15.0 0.3 to 3.02 0.01 against MRSA; 16.040.1 to 6.0  0.7 against Pseudomonas aeruginosa; 14.2 0.1 to 6.00.7 against Proteus vulgaris; 18.3 0.2 to 6.0 0.1 against Staphylococcus aureus; 14.04 0.2 to 2.0 0.02 against E. coli; and 18.0 0.1 to3.2 0.02 against Klebsiella pneumonia. The results of current study shows the antibacterial properties of five Libyan samples of date seed extract against a wide spectrum of bacteria. arabic 21 English 126

Phytochemical, Antioxidant, Antibacterial and Nutritional value of Cucurbita maxima D (Cucurbitaceae) grown in Tripoli– Libya

ABSTRACT Pumpkin (Cucurbita maxima D.) is an angiosperm belonging to the Cucurbitaceae family generally characterized by climbing herbaceous vine with tendrils. The fruits vary in size, colour, shape and weight and have a moderately hard rind, with a thick edible flesh, and numerous seeds in the fruit which are either plump and tan or soft white.Preliminary phytochemical evaluation on different extracts of seed and fruit of C.maxima reveals the presence of proteins, carbohydrates, flavonoids, saponins, alkaloids, steroids, coumerins, phenolic compounds, terpenoids, and glycosides. A C.maximum contains antioxidants (such as: tocopherols, flavonoids, and phenolic acids, carotenoids or ascorbic acid) which are molecule that are capable of slowing or preventing the oxidation of other molecules. They may protect cells from damage caused by unstable molecules known as free radicals. Antioxidants terminate these chain reactions by removing free radical intermediates, and inhibit other oxidation reactions by being oxidized themselves.Free radical scavenging or antioxidant activity of the extract was determined on the basis of their scavenging activity of the stable 1, 1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) free radical. Antibacterial activity of the crude extract was determined by Cup-cut agar diffusion method.The pulp and seed extracts showed significant antioxidant activity in a dose-dependent manner with good IC50 values. For the pulp IC50(s) were 4.25 ± 0.05, 3.84 ± 1.18 and 4.12 ± 0.32 for petroleum ether, chloroform and Methanol extracts, respectively. In addition the the seed IC50(s) were 9.22 ± 0.20, 14.5 ± 0.14 and 5.97 ± 1.70 for petroleum ether, chloroform and Methanol extracts, respectively. C.maxima extracts contains antioxidants that prevent the oxidative damage to DNA in presence of DNA damaging agent (Sybr Gold) at a high concentration. The percentage of hydroxyl radical scavenging activity of C. maxima determines the ability of antioxidant to scavenge the hydroxyl radicals. The antioxidant activity of C. maxima extracts has high scavenging activity (thermodynamic property) and relatively high reaction rate (kinetic property); therefore, the second order rate constant (ks) of the H-atom transfer from antioxidant to the hydroxyl radical was seen. The seed extract showed antibacterial properties on both Gram- positive and Gram-negative bacteria used in this study. This means that C. maxima are useful as potential antibacterial agents. It was also observed from this study, the variations in the antibacterial activities of the C. maxima may be due to the differences in their bioactive compositions or concentrations. In conclusion, the physicochemical and preliminary phytochemical evaluation of fruit and seeds of C.maxima provide valuable information regarding their identification, authentication and chemical constituents which may be useful for the standardization and preparation of medicinal plants. The constituents of fruit and seeds of C. maxima may have several medicinal properties and can be utilized for the treatment of various diseases. Further research on this species in Libya may help in the isolation of therapeutically potent compounds which can be finally be subjected to pharmacological activities, thus leading to opening up new avenues in the use of natural products for therapeutic purpose.

تقوية التأثير الوقائي للرانتيدين بواسطة الفيراباميل للقرحه المستحدثة بواسطة الايثانول في الفئران

تعتبر قرحة المعدة والإثنى عشر من أكثر أمراض الجهاز الهضمي شيوعاً. ورغم معرفة معظم العوامل المسببة للقرحة مثل الادوية المضادة للالتهابات الغيرستيرويدية وبكتيريا مثل helicobacter pylori والكحول والتدخين وغيرها ورغم توفر الأدوية المختلفة لعلاجها الاأن هناك الكثير من الحالات التي لاتستجيب بفعالية لهذه الأدوية وذلك لعدم المعرفة التامة ببعض العوامل المؤثرة على حدوثها. من المعروف أن ايونات الكالسيوم تلعب دوراً مهما في تنظيم إفراز الحامض المعدي، وتعتبر هذه الايونات مسؤلة عن تطور حدوث الأنواع المختلفة للقرحة، كما يلعب تدفق الكالسيوم دوراً مهما في إفراز وتحفيز الخلايا mammalian oxyntic cells , التأثير الذي يمكن منعه من قبل حاصرات الكالسيوم calcium channel blockers وعلاوة على ذلك تمارس حاصرات الكالسيوم تأثيرا مانعا لتحفيز إفراز الحامض المعدي عن طريق الهستامين , والجاسترين لذا يمكن أن يكون لحاصرات قناة الكالسيوم تأثير وقائي ضد القرح المعوية وذلك بتخفيض تدفق الكالسيوم مما يؤثر على إفراز الحامض في المعدة. ولهذا هدفت هذه الدراسة لتقييم تأثيرات احد أنواع حاصرات قنوات الكالسيوم الفيرباميل عند إعطاءه مع مضاد الهيستامين الرانتيدين على قرحة المعدة المستحدثة في الفئران بواسطة الكحول الإيثيلي (الايتانول). وقد أظهرت نتائجنا أن مضاد الكالسيوم، الفيراباميل، الذي يستخدم عادة لعلاج أمراض القلب والأوعية الدموية بما في ذلك ارتفاع ضغط الدم والذبحة الصدرية، وعدم انتظام ضربات القلب يملك خصائص مضادة للقرحه حيث أشارت النتائج إلى انخفاض في قرح المعدة وإفراز الحامض المعدي و ذلك عندما يعطى بمفرده أو جنبا إلى جنب مع مضادات الهيستامين الرانتيدين، وبالتالي فأنه من الممكن أن يلعب الفيراباميل دور مفيد في المرضى الذين يعانون من أعراض القلب والأوعية الدموية، وكذلك يتناولون الكحول. ويمكن الجمع بين استخدام الفيراباميل و الرانيتيدين بشكل فعال في القرحة المعوية الحادة ومتلازمة زولينجر إليسون، وربما يكون مفيداً للغاية في المرضى الذين يعانون من القرحة الهضمية، وامراض القلب والأوعية الدموية، قد تكون هناك الحاجه إلي إضافة جرعة صغيره من الرانتيدين لأن الفيراباميل وحده لن يكون كافياً للسيطرة على القرحه المعديه. وهناك حاجة إلى مزيد من الدراسات لتحديد الآلية الدقيقة للتأثير الواقي من القرحه للفيراباميل بما في ذلك تقييم تأثيره على إطلاق مخاطية المعدة للبروستاجلاندين، وتدفق الدم في مخاطية المعده، وعلى اطلاق وسائط الالتهاب الأخرى وبالإضافة إلى ذلك هناك الحاجة إلى المزيد من الدراسات السريرية على الإنسان لتأكيد هذه الفعالية.
