This article presents the development of a direct, simple and sensitive spectrophotometric method for the quantitative analysis of mebendazole (MBz), an anthelmintic medication in its pure and pharmaceutical forms. The method is based on the charge transfer (CT) interactions between MBz, an electron donor, and chloranilic acid (CA), 3,5-dinitrosalicylic acid (DNSA), and picric acid (PA), (all of w...

Seizures can be controlled with modern medicines and surgical techniques and are found to have so many side effects. Natural products from folk remedies are an alternative source of anti-epileptic drugs with bett...
DEVELOPMENT AND VALIDATION OF A SIMPLE UV SPECTROPHOTOMETRIC METHOD FOR THE DETERMINATION OF LEVOFLOXACIN BOTH IN BULK AND PHARMACEUTICAL FORMULATION
The present study was undertaken to develop and validate a simple, accurate, precise, reproducible and cost effective UV-Visible spectrophotometric method for the estimation of levofloxacin in bulk and pharmaceutical formulation. The solvent used throughout the experiment was 0.1N NaOH. Absorption maximum (λmax) of the drug was found to be 288 nm. The quantitative determination of the drug was ca...
NEW STABILITY INDICATING UPLC METHOD FOR SIMULTANEOUS DETERMINATION OF DAPAGLIFLOZIN AND SAXAGLIPTIN
A new precise, selective, accurate and rapid Ultra Performance Liquid Chromatographic stability indicating method has been developed and validated for simultaneous quantitative determination of Dapagliflozin and Saxagliptin in bulk and pharmaceutical dosage form. The chromatographic separation was achieved with HSS 100 × 2.1 mm, 1.8 m size column. The optimized mobile phase consisting of Phosphat...

ANTIDIABETIC EFFECT OF ETHANOLIC SEED EXTRACT OF DECALEPIS HAMILTONII WIGHT AND ARN ON OXIDATIVE STRESS AND ENZYMIC ACTIVITIES IN ALLOXAN INDUCED DIABETIC RATS
Decalepis hamiltonii Wight and Arn. is an indigenous medicinal plant, which has a folk reputation in Western and southern India as hypoglycemic agent. The present investigation was carried out to evaluate the antidiabetic effect of ethanolic seed extract of Decalepis hamiltonii in alloxan induced diabetic Albino rats. Blood glucose levels and body weights of control and diabetic rats were monitore...
IN-VITRO EFFECTS OF PARACETAMOL ON RHEOLOGICAL PROPERTIES OF ERYTHROCYTES AND ITS ANTIOXIDANT PROPERTIES
Human erythrocytes were pre-incubated in vitro with paracetamol and then erythrocyte’s rheological properties of deformability, osmotic fragility and aggregation were evaluated after being compromised by various means. Paracetamol (1, 2, 4mg/ml) significantly prevented the loss of deformability through 5mm diameter pores of erythrocytes dehydrated with hypertonic buffer or with calcium ionophore...
Fatty acid composition of six different leafy vegetables of Bangladesh was investigated. The amount of bound fatty acids was found to be higher than the free fatty acids in all the leafy vegetables. Different fatty acids were identified and their relative proportions were determined by GLC from the leafy vegetables. ...
