DEVELOPMENT OF A NEW STABILITY INDICATING RP-HPLC METHOD FOR SIMULTANEOUS ESTIMATION OF METFORMIN HYDROCHLORIDE AND CANAGLIFLOZIN AND ITS VALIDATION AS PER ICH GUIDELINES
A new stability indicating RP HPLC method has been developed and validated for simultaneous estimation of Metformin Hydrochloride and Canagliflozin in bulk and dosage forms. The method involves separation on Kromasil C18 column (250mm x 4.6mm x5µm particle size). The optimized mobile phase consists of 0.1% OPA (pH 2.8) and Acetonitrile (45:55v/v) with a flow rate of 1ml/min and UV detection at 25...
FACTS ON GENERIC DRUGS TO MEET OUT WORLDWIDE CHALLENGES FOR IMPLEMENTING GENERIC MEDICINE RELATED POLICIES OF HEALTH SCHEMES

India is the world’s largest exporter of cost effective generic medicines and leading Indian generic companies are genera...
COMPARATIVE EVALUATION OF PATIENT’S ACCEPTABILITY BETWEEN POLYETHER AND NON – EUGENOL BASED PERIODONTAL DRESSINGS – A RANDOMISED CONTROL CLINICAL TRIAL
Periodontal dressings were widely used after flap surgery to protect the surgical site since long. This study compared polyether urethane dimethacrylate resin based Barricaid dressing and non-eugenol based periodontal dressings in the perspective of pain, esthetics and patient acceptance using a randomized split-mouth study design. Fifteen patients coming to the Department of Periodontics at ITS D...
HEPATOPROTECTIVE ACTIVITY OF AQUEOUS EXTRACT OF PYRUS PASHIA BUCH.-HAM. EX D. DON AGAINST CCl4 INDUCED LIVER DAMAGE
The study was to evaluate the hepatoprotective activity of aqueous extract of Pyrus pashia Buch.-Ham. ex D. Don against carbon tetrachloride-induced hepatotoxicity in mice. Hepatotoxicity was induced by CCl4 30% in olive oil (1ml/kg i.p.). Mice were treated with aqueous extract of P. pashia at doses of 250 and 500 mg/kg b.wt. orally for 14 days. There were two group pre-treatment (once daily for 1...

Background: β-blocker is an established therapeutic strategy for stage C systolic heart failure based on the American Heart Association guideline, nonetheless limited studies analyzed the role of β-blocker primarily Bisoprolol adding to ACE inhibitor and furosemide combination on the left ventricular function in systolic heart failure patients. Objectives: This study was designed to analyze t...
Clerodendrum phlomidis is a shrub common in India and Sri Lanka. It is one of the highly traded medicinal plants from tropical forests, as the leaves and roots are used in folk-lore, Ayurveda, Siddha and Unnani medicines. In this study preliminary phytochemical screening, cytotoxic, antioxidant and GC - MS study of leaf of C. phlomidis was evaluated. Successive extraction of the leaf of C. phlomid...
ANTIDIABETIC ACTIVITY OF METHANOLIC LEAVES EXTRACTS OF TRANSFORMED SOYBEAN IN 3T3-L1 PRE-ADIPOCYTES CELL LINE
The present study was initiated to quantify the Isoflavones content that accumulated in soybean transgenics with RnPPARγ gene by using high performance liquid chromatography. The effects of methanolic leaves extract of transformed soybean in 3T3-L1 adipocyte cell line. The RnPPARγ transgenic soybean variety JS335 was developed and transgenics were confirmed by PCR and Southern blot techniques. T...
