FORMULATION AND IN VITRO EVALAUATION OF TABLET CONTAINING GLICLAZIDE NANOCRYSTALS FOR SOLUBILITY AND DISSOLUTION ENHANCEMENT USING SOLUPLUS
Poor aqueous solubility is the main problem in development of effective formulation which affects stability and bioavailability of drug formulation. So there is need of systematic formulation approach to make such poorly soluble drugs bioavailable. In the present investigation attempt has been made to investigate the effect of soluplus on solubility of gliclazide by preparing its nanocrystals. Nan...
ANTIMICROBIAL POTENTIAL OF CRUDE EXTRACTS AND ISOLATES OF ROOTS OF MIMOSA PUDICA LINN. COLLECTED FROM THE LOCALITY OF MOHUDA ENVIRON, GANJAM, ODISHA
A complete documentation of the ethno-biological information presently existing among the diverse communities is needed at an earliest so as to restore the traditional medicinal knowledge. Research to find out scientific evidence for claims by tribal healers on Indian herbs has been intensified as being evidenced from many cited literatures. Once these local ethno medical preparations are scien...
The study was conducted to study biochemical parameters in 42 major depressive disorder (MDD) patients, 22 males and 20 females (age range 18 - 55 years) visiting the Psychiatric Department, Government Medical College, Jammu. The smoking and alcohol intake was much lower (95.24% and 88.09%) in patients (both male and female) diagnosed with MDD. The well being status is also 76.19% satisfactory wit...
1-[3/-(SUBSTITUTED PHENYL) -5/- (AMINO PYRIMIDINE)]- 3- (4/-NITRO PHENYL) 5-(SUBSTITUTED PHENYL)- 2-PYRAZOLINES: SYNTHESIS, CHRACTERISATION AND ANTIMICROBIAL SCREENING
In the present study eight novel 2-pyrazoline - amino pyrimidine hybrids have been synthesized in order to search new chemical entities with increased pharmacological properties. The targeted analogues were synthesized in four steps; Claisen-schmidt condensation of 4-nitro acetophenone with different benzaldehydes in basic medium to yield precursor chalcone which was cyclised using hydrazine hydra...
Psidium guajava is a small medicinal tree that is native to South America and Brazil is among the world’s top producers and most of the country’s production is destined for the food industry. It is popularly known as guava and has been used traditionally as a medicinal plant throughout the world for a number of diseases. It contains important phytoconstituents such as tannins, triterpenes, fla...
The different extracts of the roots of Bruguiera gymnorhiza (Family- Rhizophoraceae) were tested for anti-diabetic activity, by glucose tolerance test in normal rats and alloxan induced diabetic rats. Aqueous ethanol and butanol extracts had shown significant protection and lowered the blood glucose levels to normal in glucose tolerance test. In alloxan induced diabetic rats the maximum reduction ...
Aim / Background: Aim of this study is to provide scientific evidences that supports the traditional use of Begonia picta; helps to prepare Begonia picta Ayurvedic and / or allopathic formulation for immediate use of herb. Methods: In present study biological screenings were done by following Cytotoxicity pre-screening by Brine shrimp lethality bioassay, anti-hyperglycemic activity evaluation by o...
The retrospective study on prescribing patterns of antihypertensives showed that the prevalence of hypertension was predominantly more with male patients than in female patients. It was also found that the average age of the overall study population was 56 years. The average age of the population clearly indicates the elderly patients were affected more. The results indicates that around 57.6% of ...
Cancer is a major public health burden in both developed and developing countries. It is actually a group of many related diseases that all have to do with cells. It is one of the major causes of death worldwide where the number of cancer patients is in continuous rise. It is a major public problem whose estimated worldwide new incidence is about 6 million cases per year. It is the second major ca...
Medicinal applications of metals and its compound were reported centuries ago but it gained huge appreciation after the discovery of anticancer activity of metal based drug cisplatin. After cisplatin discovery many medicinal synthetic chemist moved into the field of organometallics for combating diseases and investigating the excellent pharmaceutical potential of metal complexes, giving birth to m...
