IMPACT OF PERIODIC SAFETY UPDATE REPORTING SYSTEM IN A TERTIARY CARE TEACHING HOSPITAL OF SOUTHERN INDIA: A DELPHI STUDY
The process and functioning of newly implemented periodic safety update report system (PSUR) in the hospital were assessed using validated PSUR function assessment questionnaire (PFAQ) vetted by Delphi panel. Classical Delphi survey method was used to assess and validate the PFAQ in two successive review rounds with Delphi panel. Final validated PFAQ was circulated among health care practitioners ...
The aim of the present study is to develop and evaluate the immediate release tablet of Vilazodone by direct compression method. The superdisintegrant crospovidone (CP), croscarmellose sodium (CCS), sodium starch glycolate (SSG), and Locust beam gum were used for the immediate release of drug from the tablet. Optimization of superdisintegrant concentration that can control the release of the drug ...
STUDY OF ANTIULCER ACTIVITY OF ANGIOTENSIN RECEPTOR ANTAGONISTS IN EXPERIMENTALLY INDUCED GASTRIC ULCERS IN RATS

Present investigation provides evidence for complex formation of Ibuprofen (Ib) with Go-Ghrita (GG). Ibuprofen binary mixture in (1:0.5), (1:1), (1:2), (1:3) w/w proportions were prepared by adding to molten Go-Ghrita kept over a water bath at 65-70oC with continuous stirring. Organoleptic and Physico-chemical properties of GG (procured from Magan Sangrahalaya, Wardha) were as per the specificat...
THE INFLUENCE OF ETHANOL EXTRACTS OF RAMBUTAN LEAVES (NEPHELIUM LAPPACEUM L.) AGAINST OBESITY AND INSULIN RESISTANCE IN RATS
Ethanol extracts of rambutan leaves have been investigated for their anti-diabetes properties using the glucose tolerance method as well as insulin deficiency through alloxan induction. This study aimed to further evaluate these properties in obese and insulin resistant animals. The rat models were feeding with foods high in carbohydrates, fats, and propylthiouracil. The animal models were divided...
The validated analytical method was applied for the estimation of Crisaborole in aqueous and human plasma with Crisaborole-D4 as an internal standard by using UPLC-ESI-MS/MS. The chromatographic separation was achieved with 10mM ammonium acetate buffer solution (pH- 4.5): Methanol, (10:90) (% v/v) using the Xterra C18, 100 × 4.6, 5µ. The total analysis time was 2 min, and the flow rate was set t...
The present research work was conducted to formulate and evaluate Anthralin microemulsion gel using Karanj oil with an objective of improving solubility of the Anthralin. The pseudo ternary phase diagrams were developed for combinations of Karanj oil as the oil phase, Span-20 as surfactant and as Capryol 90 as cosurfactant using water titration method. Microemulsions obtained were analyzed for top...
Genistein is a soy phytoestrogen that mediates its functions by interacting with the endogenous estrogen receptor β. To investigate the effect of 10mg/kg body weight/ day genistein administration up to 90 days on the ovarian folliculogenesis and its correlation with serum gonadotropins and estrogen, adult Mus musculus were either administered with 1:4 DMSO : PBS (vehicle) or with 10mg genistein/k...
