Metabolic syndrome (MS) is a multi-factorial disorder with insulin resistance as a major characteristic. Adiponectin, an adipocyte derived cytokine, can regulate glucose levels and lipid homeostasis by its insulin sensitizer properties. Low circulating levels of serum adiponectin has been reported as a risk factor for the development of MS. The aim of this case control study was to investigate the...
Background: The non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor efavirenz is recommended as part of first-line therapy in HIV-infected patients and prescribed at a standard dose of 600 mg once daily. EFV is extensively metabolized primarily by hepatic CYP2B6 with partial involvement of CYP3A4 and CYP2A6. The aim of the study was to assess CYP 2B6 G516T polymorphism and their impact in efavirenz bas...
DEVELOPMENT OF VALIDATED STABILITY INDICATING RP-HPLC METHOD FOR ESTIMATION OF IRBESARTAN IN BULK AND PHARMACEUTICAL DOSAGE FORMS
A stability indicating RP-HPLC method was developed and validated for the determination of Irbesartan in bulk and dosage forms using Telmisartan (10 μg/ml) as the internal standard. An Inert ODS C-18, 5μm column having 250 x 4.6mm internal diameter in isocratic mode with mobile phase containing methanol: water (90:10) and the pH was adjusted to 3 with 1 % GAA. The flow rate was 1 ml/min and effl...
Medicinal plants are sources of different chemical substances with different biological activities in living organism. Some of the chemical compounds so-called “heavy metals”, can be dangerous because they tend to bioaccumulate and transported in all biota via the food chain. The aim of our study was to investigate the concentration of heavy metals in commercially available tea samples purchas...
CHARACTERISATION OF FLAVONOID GLYCOSIDES IN PHARMACOPOEIAL PREPARATION OF CISSUS VERTICILLATA (L) NICOLSON & C. E. JARVIS) USING HPLC-DAD AND HPLC-MS
According to Brazilian regulation, the registration of phytomedicines must inform the characterisation of, at least, one of their constituent. In order to contribute to this goal, a tincture of Cissus verticillata (L.) Nicolson & C.E. Jarvis prepared with ethanol 96oGL was investigated. This plant species is widely used due its hypoglycaemic properties, to control diabetes, and empirically to ...
PHYTOCHEMICAL EVALUATION AND HPTLC ANALYSIS OF PHOENIX SYLVESTRIS FRUIT EXTRACT AT TWO RIPENING STAGES
Phoenix sylvestris Roxb, commonly known as date sugar palm or wild date palm, grows naturally in the tropics and subtropics of the Indian subcontinent. The present study was aimed for phytochemical evaluation and to develop the high performance thin layer chromatography (HPTLC) fingerprint profile of methanolic extract of P. sylvestris at two ripening stages. The powdered plant material was extrac...
