MESSAGE FROM PRINCIPAL

"It can happen. It does happen.


But it can't happen if you quit." Lauren Dane.

We are what we repeatedly do.


Excellence then is not an act, but a habit. Aristotle

It gives me immense pleasure to pen a few words for our e-bulletin. At the onset I would like to thank the
last years editors and congratulate the newly selected editors for the current year.

Our first consideration is always in the best interest of the students. Our goal is to promote academic
excellence and continuous improvement.

I believe that excellence in education is aided by creating a learning environment in which all learners are
supported in maximizing their potential and talents. Education needs to focus on personalized learning
and instruction, while promoting an education system that is impartial, universally accessible, and meeting
the needs of all students.

It is of paramount importance that our learners have sufficient motivation and encouragement in order to
achieve their aims. We are all very proud of you, our students, and your accomplishments and look
forward to watching as you put your mark on the profession in the years ahead.

The call of the time is to progress, not merely to move ahead. Our progressive Management is looking
forward and wants our Institute to flourish as a Post Graduate Institute of Excellence. Steps are taken in
this direction and fruits of these efforts will be received by our students in the near future. Our Teachers
are committed and dedicated for the development of the institution by imparting their knowledge and play
the role of facilitator as well as role model to our students.

The Pharmacy profession is thriving with a multitude of possibilities, opportunities and positive
challenges. At Guru Nanak Institute of Pharmaceutical Science and Technology, our focus is on holistic
needs of our students.

I am confident that the students of GNIPST will recognize all the possibilities, take full advantage of the
opportunities and meet the challenges with purpose and determination.

Excellence in Education is not a final destination, it is a continuous walk. I welcome you to join us on
this path.

My best wishes to all.

HISTORICAL ARTICLE
Zora Neale Hurston
Women have done a lot of great and wonderful things in the
field of science. One woman scientist in particular that should
be very interesting for you to get to know is Zora Neal
Hurston. She is an American author, folklorist, and
anthropologist. She is quite prolific and she managed to
publish more than 50 plays, essays, and short stories and 4
novels. One of her best known works is entitled Their Eyes
Were Watching God which was published in the year 1937
and is also the novel that she is best remembered for.
The Early Life of Zora Neale Hurston
Zora Neale Hurston was born on Notasulga, Alabama on 7
January 1891. Her parents were Lucy Ann and John Hurston;
she was the 5th of 8 kids. John Hurston was a Baptist preacher,
carpenter, and tenant farmer while Lucy Ann was a teacher at
the local school. They didnt stay long in Alabama though
because her family made the move to Eatonville in Florida
which happened to be one of the very first all-African
American towns that got incorporated in the US. Zora Neale
Hurston was just three when they made the move. Zora Neale
Hurston has confessed that she often felt like Eatonville was

3
01-09-2017

her home and she sometimes claimed that it was her


birthplace.

Later on, her father became the mayor of Eatonville; she


glorified the town in her stories and often said it was a haven
that allowed African Americans to live in any way they wanted
to and they didnt have to be controlled or adhere to white
society mores.
The year 1901 was quite the eye-opener for young Hurston
since it was the very year some schoolteachers from the north
visited the town and gave her books. These books introduced
her to the world and beauty of literature and this is perhaps
why she describes her birth as something that happened in
that place and that year. She spent the rest of her childhood
years in Eatonville and describes what it was like in an essay
she publishes in 1928 entitled How It Feels to Be Colored Me.

Hurstons mother died in 1904 and her father got remarried to


a woman named Matte Moge. This was considered a minor
scandal in their town. Rumors flew that he had relations with
Moge even while Lucy Ann was still alive. Hurston was sent a
way by her parents to attend boarding school however she got
expelled as they stopped paying her school fees. Later on, she
worked as a maid to the lead singer of the Gilbert & Sullivan
theatre company lead singer.

By the time 1917 rolled in, she attended Morgan College which
was the high school division of the Morgan State University
which is a Historic All-Black school in Baltimore, Maryland.
She graduated in 1918 and in that same year she began to
4
01-09-2017

attend Howard University and became the earliest recruit of


the Zeta Phi Beta. She helped found The Hilltop which was the
student newspaper. Also, she took courses in Greek, Spanish,
English, and public speaking. She earned her associates degree
in 1920. A year after, she wrote John Redding Goes to Sea
which is a short story that gained her entry into the Alaine
Locke literary club called The Stylus.

She then went on to Barnard College at Columbia University


where she was the only black student. There, she received her
BA in Anthropology; she was 37 years old. While she was
studying at Barnard she worked with Franz Boas to conduct
an ethnographic research. She also worked with Margaret
Mead and Ruth Benedict for various anthropological works.

As an Adult
She married Herbert Sheen, her former classmate at Howard
and a jazz musician, in 1927. He later went on to become a
doctor but they divorced in 1931. Eight years later, she married
Albert Price while she was holding down a job at WPA. He
was 25 years younger than her and the marriage ended after
just seven months.
During her later years, she not only wrote but she also served
as a faculty member at the North Carolina College for Negroes.
She put up a school for dramatic arts in 1934 at Bethune-
Cookman College in Florida.

When the year 1956 rolled in she was given an award by the
college to recognize her achievements. The college remains

5
01-09-2017

dedicated to preserving and letting people know about her


legacy to black culture.

Her Works
She travelled quite extensively especially to the American
South and Caribbean where she got immersed in the local
culture and traditions as part of her anthropological work.
Charlott Osgood Mason sponsored her work in the South and
her work Mules and Men was based on that work and is often
looked upon as a classic folklorist work.
In 1936 to 37, she made her way to Jamaica and Haiti; an
expedition paid for the by Guggenheim Foundation and it was
in 1938 that Tell My Horse was published.

Her Later Years


The year 1948 wasnt a good year for Zora Neale Hurston as it
was this time that she was falsely accused of molesting a child;
a 10year old boy. The case was dismissed and she was in
Honduras at the time of trial but her personal life was rocked
by the scandalous accusation. She spent her last years as a
writer for newspapers and magazines. In 1957, she moved to
Fort Pierce where she took jobs like substitute teaching and
even becoming a maid once more.
Her Death
She died of hypertension heart disease on 28 January 1960 and
was buried at the Garden of Heavenly Rest Cemetery in
Florida. Her grave was unmarked for some time but literary

6
01-09-2017

scholar Charlotte Hunt and novelist Alice Walker found it and


decided to mark it for Zora Neale Hurston. She is remembered
for her vast literary works and her contributions to the field of
anthropology. In Fort Pierce, they honor her name in a festival
they call Zora Fest; a 7-day festival usually held at the end of
April.

NEWS UPDATE
First hints of possible water content on
TRAPPIST-1 planets:(31st August, 2017)
Astronomers have been trying to determine whether there
might be water on the seven Earth-sized planets orbiting the
nearby dwarf star TRAPPIST-1. The results suggest that the
outer planets of the system might still harbor substantial
amounts of water. This includes the three planets within the
habitable zone of the star, lending further weight to the
possibility that they may indeed be habitable.

Gut bacteria that 'talk' to human cells may


lead to new treatments: (30th August, 2017)
Scientists developed a method to genetically engineer gut
bacteria to produce molecules that have the potential to treat
certain disorders by altering human metabolism.

Motorized molecules drill through cells: (30th


August, 2017)
Motorized molecules that target diseased cells may deliver
drugs to or kill the cells by drilling into the cell membranes.
Scientists have demonstrated them on cancer and other cells.

Complete remission of brain metastasis of


difficult-to-treat tumor:(28th August, 2017)
Medical researchers report a remarkable treatment response in a
patient participating in a clinical trial of a novel immune-
system-based cancer therapy.

Compounds in cocoa may help delay onset of


type 2 diabetes: (28th August, 2017)
What if eating chocolate helped prevent and treat diabetes? It's
crazy enough to laugh off. But here's the thing: Researchers have
discovered certain compounds found in cocoa can actually help
your body release more insulin and respond to increased blood
glucose better. Insulin is the hormone that manages glucose, the
blood sugar that reaches unhealthy levels in diabetes.

Eating triggers endorphin release in the


brain:(28th August, 2017)
Researchers have revealed how eating stimulates brain's
endogenous opioid system to signal pleasure and satiety.

Statins linked to lower rates of breast cancer


and mortality: (28th August, 2017)
A 14 year study in more than one million people has found
that women with high cholesterol have significantly lower
rates of breast cancer and improved mortality. The research
suggests that statins are associated with lower rates of breast
cancer and subsequent mortality.

KNOWLEDGE BASED ARTICLE


Gene Therapy for Parkinsons Disease:
Progress and Challenges
Parkinsons disease (PD), a common neurodegenerative disorder, is
characterized by resting tremor, rigidity, bradykinesia and
postural instability.
It is caused by the selective loss of dopaminergic neurons in the
substantia nigra pars compacta (SNpc) and the depletion of
neurotransmitter dopamine in the stratum. Current therapy for
PD aims to increase the striatal dopamine level by oral
administration of L-3, 4-dihydroxyphenylalanine (L-DOPA), a
precursor of dopamine that can restore motor functions to various
degrees.
However, this symptomatic therapy is seriously limited by both a
decrease in drug efficacy during the late stage of the disease and
undesirable side effects, such as on-off phenomena, dyskinesia,
and hallucinations Furthermore, L-DOPA treatment does not alter
9
01-09-2017

the progression of PD. Although local delivery of dopamine from


implanted tissues has been investigated as a means to improve
motor function, the application of dopamine-producing fetal or
embryonic tissue resulted in variable improvement and long-term
complications .
Moreover, the use of fetal and embryonic tissue presents a major
logistical and ethical challenge, making this approach impractical
as a therapeutic strategy. Because some therapeutic molecules,
such as glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF), have
difficulty crossing the blood-brain barrier, attempts have also
been made to deliver them by stereotaxic injection into the brain.
However, in contrast to the promising results seen in animal
experiments, there is no evidence that intraventricular GDNF
injection induces neurotrophic effects on degenerating
nigrostriatal neurons at level of either the substantia nigra (SN)
or the striatum in patients with PD.

This can probably be explained by the fact that GDNF delivered


in this manner cannot reach its desired targets in the brain---
putamen and SN . Although direct injections or chronic pump
intraparenchymal infusions of GDNF offers a clinically acceptable
method of delivery, it is doubtful that either approach would be
adequate in treatment of a long-term neurodegenerative disease.
Thus, vector-mediated transfer of therapeutic genes to specific
locations within the central nervous system (CNS) has emerged as
the favored strategy.

Two approaches to PD gene therapy are being pursued. One is to


restore dopamine production by delivering the genes of dopamine-
synthesizing enzymes to the striatum, thus relieving the motor
symptoms of PD. The second is to block or slow the ongoing
10
01-09-2017

degenerative process by transducing cells with genes that encode


neurotrophins.
