Article
Methanolic extract of Morinda citrifolia unripe fruit (MMC) was tested against heroin addiction using a mouse modified runway model of drug-seeking. Habituation sessions were carried out for 10 min/d for 3 days. On day 0, the total run time of each mouse was noted (the start box to goal box) during the preconditioning test. This was followed by the...

Phytotherapy is an emerging field successfully utilized to treat various chronic diseases including alcohol dependence. In the present study, we examined the effect of the standardized methanolic extract of Morinda citrifolia Linn. unripe fruit (MMC), on compulsive ethanol-seeking behavior using the mouse conditioned place preference (CPP) test. CP...

Morinda citrifolia L. commonly known as noni or Indian mulberry belongs to the family Rubiaceae. Noni fruit juice has recently become a very popular remedy for the treatment of several diseases, including psychiatric disorders. This study aimed to investigate the anticraving effect of Tahitian Noni® Juice (TNJ) against ethanol seeking behavior in I...

The present study established a novel mouse model of a runway drug self-administration in our laboratory. The operant runway apparatus consisted of three long runways arranged in a zig-zag manner. The methodology consisted of six distinct phases: habituation, preconditioning, conditioning, post-conditioning, extinction and reinstatement. The effect...

Conference Paper
The current study in our laboratory for a first time demonstrated the modified version of the oparent runway model of drug self-administration in mice permitted a more efficient long-term examination of runway operant behavior for IP drug reinforcement. The operant runway apparatus consisted of three long runways in a zig-zag manner. The operant ru...

Good day
I hope you keeping well. I am Dr Yasmin Khan from Pakistan. I work at ICCBS (International Center for Chemical and Biological Sciences). "International Center for Chemical and Biological Sciences (ICCBS)" is a postgraduate UNESCO accredited research institute located in Karachi, Pakistan. It governs under the University of Karachi. 
In Pakistan, no research center or university has a SPF level small laboratory animal facility. ICCBS institute has been given a task by Higher Education Commission, Pakistan to develop a national level SPF facility with the capacity to develop, and breed genetically modified mice for research purposes. This may also include the training of national researchers to acquire the required skills. Furthermore, this is also a need of time to properly manage the colonies of the genetically modified mice. For these reasons, we are looking for opportunities around the world institutions to build capacity building collaborations in this area of research. If you are interested in collaboration with ICCBS. Kindly let me know. I am waiting for your positive response.
