ASSESSMENT OF PHARMACEUTICAL QUALITY CONTROL AND IN VITRO EQUIVALENCE OF VARIOUS BRANDS OF ATENOLOL (100MG) TABLETS AVAILABLE IN SUDANESE MARKET UNDER BIOWAIVER CONDITIONS.
As Atenolol is one of the first choice medications in the management of hypertension in Sudan, it was very important to carry out post authorization safety studies on some of the brands commercially available on the market. The pharmaceutical equivalence of three Atenolol 100 mg tablets was evaluated using official and non-official standards according to US Pharmacopoeia including weight variation...
STABILITY INDICATING GREEN ANALYTICAL GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY METHOD FOR THE DETERMINATION OF DIPHENHYDRAMINE IN PURE AND MARKETED FORMULATIONS
The current work defines development of a simple, rapid and precise method based on gas chromatography coupled with Flame Ionization Detector (GC-FID) for the quantitative estimation of diphenhydramine (DPH) present in the marketed formulations following the principles of green analytical chemistry. The analysis was performed using Zebron Phase: ZB-DRUG-1 column with Nitrogen as a carrier gas havi...
Background: Oleogel is a thermo-reversible, viscoelastic, semi-solid self-assembled preparation in which an apolar phase gets immobilized within a 3-D networked structure formed via physical or chemical interaction with different organogelators. Objective: The objective of the present investigation was to develop drug-loaded (paracetamol) Span 40 / Tween 80-based soybean oleogels for topical appli...
EARLY PREDICTION OF CISPLATIN NEPHROTOXICITY IN HEAD AND NECK CANCER PATIENTS – AN EVALUATION WITH URINARY BIOMARKERS
Background: Nephrotoxic Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) is a common condition associated with considerable morbidity and mortality. Acute exposure to potentially nephrotoxic drugs requires early appraisal of the extent of renal injury to determine the need for specific interventions. Hence this study was designed to evaluate two urinary biomarkers for the early diagnosis of AKI due to cisplatin chemothe...
AN ANALYTICAL STUDY ON THE CLINICAL EFFICACY OF PEENISA PUGAI TOWARDS THE MANAGEMENT OF PEENISAM (SINUSITIS)
Pugai (fumigation) is one among the external medicines in treating a variety of diseases with the fumes of herbs or aromatic substance. Peenisa pugai is an external therapeutic measure that has been indicated in Siddha literature for the effective management of Peenisam that can be symptomatically correlated with that of Sinusitis. The aim of the present Pilot study was to compare the efficacy of ...
DEVELOPMENT AND VALIDATION OF A SIMPLE UV SPECTROPHOTOMETRIC METHOD FOR THE DETERMINATION OF LEVOFLOXACIN BOTH IN BULK AND PHARMACEUTICAL FORMULATION
The present study was undertaken to develop and validate a simple, accurate, precise, reproducible and cost effective UV-Visible spectrophotometric method for the estimation of levofloxacin in bulk and pharmaceutical formulation. The solvent used throughout the experiment was 0.1N NaOH. Absorption maximum (λmax) of the drug was found to be 288 nm. The quantitative determination of the drug was ca...
IN-VITRO AND IN-VIVO ANIMAL MODEL FOR SCREENING ANTI-DIABETIC ACTIVITY OF HELLENIA SPECIOSA (J. KOENIG) S. R. DUTTA
Diabetes mellitus is one of the most common endocrine disorder which causes microvascular and macrovascular complications. Herbal medicines derived from plant extracts are used to treat various diseases because of its fewer side effects. The present investigation includes a screening of phytochemicals and evaluation of the in-vitro and in-vivo anti-diabetic activity of Hellenia speciosa leaves ext...
ALTERATIONS IN LIPID PROFILE PARAMETERS OF ALBINO RAT AFTER INTOXICATION OF MERCURY SELENIDE NANOPARTICLES
Nanoparticles are of great scientific interest, in fact, a bridge between bulk materials and atomic or molecular structures. The main characteristic of nanoparticles is their extreme smaller size, which falls in the transitional zone between molecules and the corresponding bulk materials. Lipids and fatty acids are a family of molecules classified within the lipid macronutrient class. The present ...
CHARACTERIZATION OF LIGNINOLYTIC ENZYMES AND DECOLOURIZATION OF SELECTED TEXTILE DYES FROM THE BLUSHING BRACKET MUSHROOM, DAEDALEOPSIS CONFRAGOSA
The effect of a wide range of culture conditions on the production of laccase (Lac), Lignin peroxidase (Lip) and Manganese peroxidases (MnP) by Daedaleopsis confragosa was studied. A ligninolytic enzyme-producing bracket mushroom, Daedaleopsis confragosa was isolated from tree trunk from Karwar coastal region, Karnataka, India and subjected to production and dye decolorization study. Ligninolytic ...
