SPECTROPHOTOMETRIC DETERMINATION OF ETHAMBUTOL IN PURE AND PHARMACEUTICAL FORMS USING TRIPHENYL METHANE DYES
Simple and sensitive extractive spectrophotometric methods for the determination of Ethambutol in pure form and in pharmaceutical formulations using triphenyl methane dyes have been developed. The developed methods involve formation of coloured chloroform extractable ion-pair complexes of the drug with triphenyl methane dyes viz., bromocresol green (BCG), bromocresol purple (BCP) and bromophenol b...
Stress is part and parcel of our life and stress management is gaining importance day by day. Traditional mantras are reported to be very effective for and safe methods. Hence the traditional knowledge of mantras should be practiced, preserved and propagated. Om Namah Shivaya is a most potent and popular mantra, which is at the heart of the Vedas and Tantra. The present study was aimed to observe ...
ANTIDIABETIC ACTIVITY OF HYDROETHANOLIC LEAF EXTRACT OF GYMNEMA HIRSUTUM WIGHT & ARN IN STREPTOZOTOCIN-INDUCED DIABETIC RATS
The present study has investigated the hypoglycaemic effect of oral administration of 50% ethanolic leaf extract of G. hirsutum Wight & Arn in normal and Streptozotocin–induced diabetic rats. Albino Wistar rats (190 to 220 gm) were induced diabetic condition by administration of Streptozotocin (STZ) (55 mg/kg bw) intraperitoneally. 50% ethanolic extract of G. hirsutum Wight & Arn l...
EVALUATION OF ANTIDIABETIC POTENTIAL OF WITHANIA SOMNIFERA BY GLUCOSE UPTAKE ASSAY ON 3T3 F442A FIBROBLAST (ADIPOCYTE) CELLS
Antidiabetic potential of leaf and root extracts of Withania somnifera from Nimuch, Lucknow, Mumbai and Karnataka regions of India were evaluated against 3T3F442A fibroblast (3T3 adipocyte) cell line using glucose uptake assay. Leaf extracts from all the four regions were active on the cell line tested. Samples from Mumbai region found to be more active when compared with other regions. Root extra...
This study was aimed to design and develop iontophoretic drug delivery of L-Tyrosine in the treatment of phenylketonuria. The In-house iontophoretic drug delivery device was designed and validation was performed respect to Current intensity, Voltage, and Power Resistance. The study was also focused various parameters such as effect of different drug concentrations (2.5mg/5ml, 5mg/5ml, 10mg/5ml, 15...
EVALUATION OF WOUND HEALING ACTIVITY OF ZIZIPHUS XYLOPYRUS (RETZ) WILLD LEAVES EXTRACT IN WISTAR ALBINO RATS
Aim: The present study provides a scientific evaluation for the wound healing activity of methanolic extract of Ziziphus xylopyrus (Retz) Willd leaves (MEZX). Methods: Incision and excision wound models were used to evaluate the wound healing activity of MEZX on Wistar rats. In each model, animals were divided into four groups of 6 animals each. In both model, Group I was assigned as control (oint...
Midazolam is used as short-acting pre-anesthetic benzodiazepine with solubility of <0.1mg/mL at neutral-pH, which increases considerably in acidic media. Midazolam commercial acidic aqueous parenteral formulation (pH~3.3) causes pain and inflammation at administration site, which induces low patient-compliance. According to the absence of non-parenteral formulation, available parenteral dosage-...
THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN INTESTINAL PROTECTIVE MARKERS AND SERUM ENDOTHELIN-1 CONCENTRATIONS IN LOW BIRTH WEIGHT INFANTS WITH HYPOXIC-ISCHEMIC ENCEPHALOPATHY
Perinatal hypoxia results in poor circulation in internal organs, causing damage to the intestinal mucosa. Here, we aimed to evaluate the role of endothelial vasoconstrictor function in the formation of the intestinal mucous barrier in low-birth-weight neonates with hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE). We comparatively analysed the concentrations of specific intestinal protective markers, i.e., ...
CHARACTERIZATION AND VALIDATION OF IMPURITIES RELATED TO PHARMACEUTICAL BULK DRUG (API) BY USING SOME ANALYTICAL TECHNIQUES
Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) of pharmaceutical bulk drug, four impurities were identified and were detected by a newly developed Reverse phase high performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) method. The R.S.D.’s for SM-I, SM-II, SM- III and SM were found to be 1.48%, 1.71%, 1.67%, 6.37% respectively. These values are within the acceptance criteria of 10%.The limit of quantification valu...
VIRTUAL SCREEENING AND PHARMACOLOGICAL EVALUATION OF NEWER BTK INHIBITIORS AS POTENT ANTI-RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIC AGENTS
Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic autoimmune disease affecting 1% of the world wide population. Recent researches suggested that the need for discovery of new therapeutic disease modifying anti-rheumatoid arthritis drugs (DMARD’s). BTK (Bruton’s tyrosine kinase) is cytoplasmic, non receptor tyrosine kinase and it is efficient target for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. This encouraged us...
