The present study was approached to prepare SMEDDS loaded herbal drug (THDC4-0475RD) for the arthritis through topical delivery by gel formulation(s). The efficiency of prepared SMEDDS and SMEDDS loaded gel to enhance the delivery of anti arthritic drug were also evaluated. Labrafil and Stelliester were used as oil phase. Cremophor used as surfactant and sodium caprylate, cutina HR pH, Lutrol Micr...
EFFICACY AND COST OF GRANISETRON VERSUS ONDANSETRON IN THE PREVENTION OF CHEMOTHERAPY INDUCED NAUSEA AND VOMITING AMONG CANCER PATIENTS AT KENYATTA NATIONAL HOSPITAL
Differences in cost and similarities in the efficacy between ondansetron and granisetron have been reported in many clinical studies and prompted this study to determine whether such differences are important as Kenyatta National Hospital. Thirty-four adult cancer patients scheduled to start their consecutive three weekly cycles of cisplatin-based chemotherapy regimens, were recruited into a doubl...
Delonix regia Rafin. belonging to family Fabaceae and subfamily Caesalpinioideae is flowering plant native to Madagascar and East Africa. Delonix regia reported to have anti-diarrhoeal, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, hepatoprotective and antimicrobial activity. The present study was carried out to establish the pharmacognostical studies, physico-chemical parameters along with preliminary phytoche...
PROTECTIVE ROLE OF GYMNEMIC ACID IN CURBING HIGH FAT DIET AND HIGH FRUCTOSE INDUCED PANCREATIC OXIDATIVE STRESS MEDIATED TYPE-2 DIABETES IN WISTAR RATS
High fat diet and High fructose intake is the predominant lifestyle change that increased the epidemic of type-2 diabetes. HFD+HF feeding leads to oxidative stress mediated T2D through production of free radicals and decrement of antioxidant enzymes. Our present study focussed on the curbing effect of gymnemic acid on high fat diet and high fructose feeding induced oxidative stress mediated Type 2...
STABILITY PROFILE DEVELOPMENT USING SIMULTANEOUS ESTIMATION METHOD FOR FIXED DOSED COMBINATION OF ALISKIREN AND AMLODIPINE BY HPLC
The Pharma market is getting flooded with fixed dose combination drugs due to better patient compliance, has but created a challenging situation for analytical chemists. The objective of study was developing an analytical method for simultaneously estimating aliskiren and amlodipine in combination with their forced degradation products obtained by treating the sample under tress conditions like ac...
Aseptic processing is a widely used technology in the field of pharmaceutical, biotech, and medical device industries for the preparation of sterile materials. The term aseptic processing as it is applied in the pharmaceutical industry refers to the assembly of sterilized components and product in a specialized clean environment. Aseptic processes are some of the most difficult processes to conduc...
The first case of middle east respiratory syndrome (MERS) was identified in a mid-aged Saudi Arabian resident in 2012. The syndrome is analogous to severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) in its clinical course, with a male predominance in incidence. MERS virus is disseminated as a result of close proximity of people to camels, person to person transmission being uncommon and confined to hospital...
DEVELOPMENT AND VALIDATION OF HPLC METHOD FOR DETERMINATION OF CERITINIB IN RABBIT PLASMA USING PDA DETECTOR
A rapid, sensitive and reproducible HPLC method was developed and validated for the quantification of Ceritinib in rabbit plasma using PDA detector at wave length 264 nm. The method was developed using Dasatinib as internal standard (IS). Ceritinib is a selective and potent inhibitor of anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) indicated in the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). The Ceritinib...
Antimicrobial activity of compound (2) was investigated against pathogenic microorganisms: Staphylococcus aureus (Gram (+), Escherichia coli (Gram (-) and fungal strain, Candida albicans using the Well Diffusion and the Poison plate methods. Compound (2) was shown to inhibit pathogenic growth, and judging from the area of the zone of inhibition, the susceptibility of the microorganism against co...
Nipah virus infection (NiV) is a viral infection caused by the Nipah virus. Nipah virus provides one of the most striking examples of an emerging virus and illustrates many of the pathways leading from a wildlife reservoir to human infections. Prior to 1998 there had been no reports of a disease of wildlife, domestic animals or humans that would subsequently be considered infection with Nipah vi...
