This study evaluated the in vitro antioxidant and cytotoxic potential of methanolic extract of the root of Calotropis procera (R. BR.). The Antioxidant activity of the extract was investigated by the In-vitro Anti-Oxidant activity (DDPH Scavenging activity) assays. The IC50 of the Calotropis procera studied by the above mention method was found below 100 μg/ml which indicates the potent antioxida...
SCIENTIFIC EVALUATION OF VALLI PANCHMOOLA – DIFFERENT COMPOSITIONS THROUGH PHARMACOGNOSTICAL AND PHYTOCHEMICAL METHODOLOGY
Objective: This study aimed at ensuring the different compositions of Valli panchmoola using authentic herbs and establishing pharmacognostical, physicochemical, and phytochemical standards for the compositions. Methods: Compositions of Vallli panchmoola were prepared as per the formula and procedure mentioned in traditional texts and Ayurvedic Formulary of India. The prepared compositions were ev...
About 5-10% of individuals with the condition of prediabetes or intermediate hyperglycemia develop diabetes annually. Prediabetes can revert to normal glycaemic state as well. Reversion to normal glucose, even when transient, is associated with a significant 56% reduced risk of future diabetes independent of previous treatment. Prediabetes is associated with many microvascular as well as macro-vas...
Aim: Isniazid is unstable in aqueous medium. The aim is to improve the aqueous stability of isoniazid by microencapsulation method. Methods: Isoniazid microcapsules were prepared by temperature change method. Ethyl cellulose used as coating material which forms a layer on pure drug. Ethyl cellulose was insoluble in cold cyclohexane when temperature rise about 70-750C it become soluble in cyc...
STUCTURAL AND SPECTROSCOPIC STUDY OF Cu(II) – TAURINE –HEXAMINE TERNARY COMPLEX: DETERMINATION OF THE STABILITY CONSTANTS IN METHANOL – WATER MIXTURES
Stoichiometry and apparent stability constant (KC) of the complex formed between Cu(II), hexamine and taurine were determined in water and methanol-water mixtures (% methanol w/w: 3.11; 6.15; 10.4; 15.2; 19.9 and 25.3) by UV–vis spectroscopy at 25o C and constant ionic strength (0.05 M, sodium chloride). Stoichiometry of the ternary complex (1:1: 2, metal: hexamine: taurine) is not modified with...
DESIGN AND OPTIMIZATION OF ZIDOVUDINE LOADED URIDDALL MUCILAGE MICROSPHERES, USING BOX BEHNKEN METHOD
Objective: The objective of the current investigation is to study the combined influence of sodium alginate, uriddall mucilage and calcium chloride on drug encapsulation efficiency and particle size of microspheres. Zidovudine-loaded sodium alginate based uriddall mucilage microspheres were prepared by the solvent evaporation method. Further, optimization of the formulation was done using a three-...
IN-VITRO EVALUATION OF EFFECT OF HYDROALCOHOLIC MEDIA ON DRUG RELEASE FROM SUSTAINED RELEASE FORMULATION
In the recent development, worldwide consumption of alcohol has shot up in the past decade as a part of lavish and Gen next lifestyle changes. There have been innumerable instances of people consuming alcoholic beverages and drugs at the same time. Hence in our study, Diclofenac and Metformin were selected as representatives of highly prescribed and overused drugs. Hence, the present study was pla...
The investigation was carried out to determine the possible bioactive compounds marine macro algae Padina australis using methanol extract. The GC-MS analysis of methanol extract was performed using perkin Elmer GC clarus. Six compounds were identified from Padina australis showed highest peak area Pentadecanoic acid 14-methyl ester [100%] followed by 1, 2 Benzenedi carboxylic acid, butyl octyl es...
The objective of this work was to study the effect of concentration and viscosity grade of HPMC, different diluents and inclusion of solid dispersions on the matrix tablets of aceclofenac. In present study, aceclofenac, a novel NSAID used for symptomatic treatment of pain and inflammation was formulated into matrix tablets with HPMC of two different viscosity grades (E50 LV and K15 M) by direct co...
A simple, sensitive and specific RP-HPLC method was developed and validated for the determination of Orotic acid in bulk and capsule dosage form. Chromatography was carried out on an Enable C18G (250 × 4.6 mm i.d.,5µ) column using filtered and degassed mixture of acetonitrile and methanol in the ratio of 60:40% v/v as mobile phase at a flow rate of 1 ml/min and effluent was monitored at 280 nm. ...
