          Abstract

          Narcotics have become a global problem and have assumed to be progressively serious issue internationally. World Health Organization (WHO) defined drugs as “any substance when consumed by the living organism may alter one or more functions. The treatment and rehabil-itation of drug addicts is long and painful journey from drug dependency to a healthy and drug-free lifestyle. Rehabilitation programmers are extremely costly and demand highly motivated people to take care of drug addicts in any given circumstances. In Pakistan, the majority of existing treatment and rehabilitation facilities provide detoxification services. The Detoxification and Rehabilitation Complex Quetta was established in 26 March 2009. The current study is qualitative in nature that seeks to find out the effects in reduction for drug addicts in Quetta City. The data was gathered by conducting interviews and Focus Group Discussion (FGD) among administrative staff, nurses and the family members of the rehabilitation center and the family members of addicts. Using statistical tools of Microsoft Office (Excel) the data derived from the interviews was analyzed. The result of the study indicated that problems like: lack of community support; easily available psychoactive drugs in the society; partial number of drug rehabilitation centers; lack of medicines in the rehabs; lack of doctors; etc. are the key factors that hinder the treatment process. A variety of supportive services for enhancing the rehabilitation process were found to be in practice These trainings include life skills training; job counseling; skills like shoe making, tailoring, electrical work; etc. Being an Islamic state, counseling through religious scholars is a common practice as to make the addicts realize and get ready to give up the drugs. The present study established that the medicinal drugs used in the treatment did affect the treat-ment. Most of the enrolled clients get fully well after completion of the treatment. The Detox and Rehab has been in action since 2009 and located in the outskirts of Quetta (Eastern-by-pass) and getting popularity among the masses for its treating and rehabilitation purposes.

          Macrocycles in new drug discovery.

          The use of drug-like macrocycles is emerging as an exciting area of medicinal chemistry, with several recent examples highlighting the favorable changes in biological and physicochemical properties that macrocyclization can afford. Natural product macrocycles and their synthetic derivatives have long been clinically useful and attention is now being focused on the wider use of macrocyclic scaffolds in medicinal chemistry in the search for new drugs for increasingly challenging targets. With the increasing awareness of concepts of drug-likeness and the dangers of 'molecular obesity', functionalized macrocyclic scaffolds could provide a way to generate ligand-efficient molecules with enhanced properties. In this review we will separately discuss the effects of macrocyclization upon potency, selectivity and physicochemical properties, concentrating on recent case histories in oncology drug discovery. Additionally, we will highlight selected advances in the synthesis of macrocycles and provide an outlook on the future use of macrocyclic scaffolds in medicinal chemistry.
