DEVELOPMENT AND OPTIMIZATION OF LIPOSOMAL KETOTIFEN FUMARATE DRY POWDER USING RESPONSE SURFACE METHODOLOGY
The aim of this study was to develop and optimize nano-liposomally entrapped ketotifen fumarate (KTF) loaded dry powder inhalation (DPI) formulation using response surface methodology (RSM). Based on the 33 full factorial design (33FFD), the mass ratio of KTF solution to soybean phosphatidylcholine (SPC94), KTF/ SPC94 to 0.5 M lactose solution that after lyophilization produce lyophilized liposoma...
FORMULATION AND EVALUATION OF SOLID SELF-MICROEMULSIFYING DRUG DELIVERY SYSTEM FOR IMPROVED ORAL DELIVERY OF OLMESARTAN MEDOXOMIL
The present work aimed at formulating a solid self micro emulsifying drug delivery system (solid-SMEDDS) for Olmesartan Medoxomil with the objective of improving the aqueous solubility, dissolution and oral delivery of the drug. Liquid SMEDDS of the drug were formulated using Capmul MCM as the oil phase, Tween 80 and Phenoxide HCO-40 as the combined surfactants after screening various vehicles. Th...
The rise of antibiotic resistant pathogens leads to the development of new antibiotics and drugs. Natural products capture the attention of the researchers for such drug discovery. Apart from medicinal plants, many microorganisms also play a great role in the discovery of antibiotics. In this context, bacteria from Sea surface microlayer (SML) are also investigated nowadays. The secondary metaboli...
In the present investigation, controlled release microparticles of Glimepiride were prepared by emulsion solvent evaporation technique using cellulose acetate as release retardant polymer. The microparticles were evaluated for In-Vitro release study and In-Vivo evaluation. The microparticles were subjected to In-vitro release studies by employing 7.8 pH phosphate buffer as dissolution medium. The ...
INVITRO ANTIOXIDANT STUDY AND SEARCH FOR A NOVEL BIOACTIVE COMPOUND FROM LEAVE FRACTIONS OF CANTHIUM COROMANDELICUM (BURM.F.) ALSTON
Background: Plants are enriched with various types of phytoconstituents present in the form of secondary metabolites that ensure its medicinal value. Keeping this in view, the present investigation was carried out focusing on its antioxidant property that may mainstay of exploring other therapeutic potency.

EVALUATING HYPOLIPIDEMIC POTENTIAL OF KASNI SEED (CICHORIUM INTYBUS) PREPARATIONS IN NEWLY DIAGNOSED PATIENTS OF METABOLIC DISORDER
Objective: To evaluate hypolipidemic potential of Kasni (Cichorium intybus) seed preparations combined with oral hypoglycemic agent in treatment of patients of newly diagnosed type 2 DM. Methods: Newly diagnosed 90 patients of Type2DM, age 35-65years, of either sex were divided into 3 groups. Each group having 30 patients (19 male and 11 females) matched with each other in terms of age and sex. In...
Anti-stress activity of hydro-alcoholic extract of Sauropus androgynous leaves was investigated against experimentally induced stress in rats using forced swimming endurance test and chronic cold restraint stress test. Acute toxicity study was performed and hydro-alcoholic extract of Sauropus androgynous leaves was found to be safe at a dose of 2000 mg/kg bodyweight. Two doses 200 mg/kg (SALE-200)...
BIO EFFICACY OF MICHELIA CHAMPACA LINN ON MEMBRANE BOUND ENZYMES IN CCl4 INDUCED HEPATOTOXICITY IN RATS
The aim of the present study is to evaluate the protective effect of flower extract of Michelia champaca on membrane bound enzyme (serum ATPase) levels on male albino rats. The membrane bound enzymes (Ca2+ ATPase, Mg2+ ATPase, Na+K+ ATPase) levels of methanolic flower extract of Michelia champaca at a dose of 300 mg/kg was evaluated during exposure to CCl4. There was a significant decrease i...
The present study was aimed at developing an oral floating system for Enalapril maleate with the objective to enhance the oral bioavailability of the drug. As it is a prodrug, oxidizing agent KMnO4 was used with distilled water and observed at 340 nm against a reagent blank, using PC Shimazdu UV Spectrophotometer. The obtained standard graph of drug was a straight line with coefficient correla...
ANALYTICAL METHOD DEVELOPMENT AND VALIDATION FOR THE ESTIMATION OF CANDESARTAN CILEXETIL IN BULK AND PHARMACEUTICAL DOSAGE FORMS BY THIRD ORDER DERIVATIVE SPECTROSCOPIC TECHNIQUE
Candesartan cilexetil, a prodrug is a racemic mixture containing one chiral center at the cyclohexyloxy-carbonyloxy- ethyl ester group. It is soluble in dimethyl formamide, acetone, methanol, 0.1 N sodium hydroxide solution and insoluble in water. Objective of the present study is to develop a simple, sensitive, accurate, precise and rapid derivative spectrophotometric method for the estimation of...
