The investigation was aimed at evaluation of the mechanism of anticancer activity of the glycosides from Calotropis gigantea on breast cancer MCF-7 cells through analysis of modulation of gene expression. Cardiac glycosides were isolated from the leaves of C. gigantea and the compounds were identified through LC-MS. Influence of the glycoside sample on expression of p53 and Bcl-2 genes in MCF-7 ...
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. Hence, phytochemical investigation followed with antioxidant property was evaluated in the ...
EFFECT OF RELATIVE HUMIDITY ON ACETAMINOPHEN TABLET PROPERTIES PREPARED BY DIFFERENT TECHNIQUES USING POLYVINYLPYRROLIDINE DERIVATIVES AS BINDER
Amount of moisture content present in solid dosage forms plays a major role in influencing the physicochemical properties of tablets such as dissolution rate, disintegration time, hardness, etc. The aim of the current study was to investigate the effect of relative humidity (RH) exposure on various properties of acetaminophen tablets manufactured by direct compression and wet granulation methods. ...

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...
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...
SENSITIVE AND SELECTIVE METHODS FOR DETERMINATION OF PROTEOLYTIC ACTIVITY OF FORMULATION CONTAINING BROMELAIN AND TRYPSIN AS PROTEOLYTIC ENZYMES
Accurate and sensitive assay methods for quantitative determination of Rutoside trihydrate (rutin), Trypsin and Bromelain in tablet formulation based on UV-spectrophometric analysis were developed and validated. This three drug combination has anti-inflammatory properties and hence is used for treatment of edema and inflammations. Rutin was analyzed directly by UV-Vis spectrophotometer at 257nm be...
The healing of an adult skin wound is a complex process of different tissues and cell lineages. Understanding wound healing involves understanding of inflammation, proliferation, and maturation phase. The present study was aimed at evaluation of proliferative action of hydroalcoholic extract of Trigonella foenum graecum (HETG) in albino rats using excision and incision wound model. HETG 5% W/W and...
Problem Statement: Do the soil Actinomycetes do have Antimicrobial and Petrol degradation potential? An intriguing question. Actinomycetes are continues to be a subject of study with reference to their Antimicrobial and degradative potential. However studies have been done is limited. Our object was to study its Antimicrobial activity in wide spectrum and to study its degradation potential on Petr...
ENHANCEMENT OF BIOAVAILABILITY OF NORFLOXACIN MUCOADHESIVE SUSPENSION BY USING DIFFERENT GRADES OF CARBOPOL
Norfloxacin is slightly soluble in water and is a synthetic antimicrobial fluoroquinolone. Absorption of Norfloxacin is slightly impaired when it is administered with food as evidenced by a reduction of approximately 30% in the peak serum concentration. In the present study concept of mucoadhesive suspension is introduced to overcome the limitation of drug that has poor oral bioavailability an...
