In recent years Phosphatidylcholine has greatly impacted the drug delivery technology. The very first and most important advantage of phospholipid based vesicular system is the compatibility of phospholipids with membrane of human either internal membrane as well as skin (external membrane). For a drug to be absorbed and distributed into organs and tissues and eliminated from the body, it must pas...

SIMULTANEOUS ESTIMATION OF AMITRIPTYLINE HYDROCHLORIDE AND PERPHENAZINE BY ABSORPTION RATIO (Q- ANALYSIS) UV SPECTROPHOTOMETRIC METHOD IN COMBINED TABLET DOSAGE FORM
The simple, accurate and precise absorption ratio method has been developed for the simultaneous estimation of amitriptyline HCl and perphenazine in combined tablet dosage form. The λmax of amitriptyline HCl and perphenazine were found to be 240.0 nm and 258.0 nm respectively. For the estimation by Q-analysis method, the λmax those selected were 240.0 nm and an isoabsorptive point for both the d...

INVESTIGATING THE EFFECT OF MOLECULAR WEIGHT OF POLYVINYLPYRROLIDONE AND HYDROXYPROPYL METHYL CELLULOSE AS POTENTIAL ANTIPRECIPITANTS ON SUPERSATURATED DRUG SOLUTIONS AND FORMULATIONS USING WEAKLY ACIDIC DRUG: INDOMETHACIN
Most of the drug discovered in past decade belongs to biopharmaceutical classification system (BCS) class II. The solubility of these drugs is the limiting factor for oral bioavailability. The drug can be present in solution in a supersaturated state; however, it has a tendency to crystallize out. In this paper, we aim to study the effect of molecular weight of Polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) (PVP K12,...
