EFFECT OF HUMIC AND SALICYLIC ACIDS ON OIL YIELD AND FLAVONOID GLYCOSIDE OF SAFFLOWERS (CARTHAMUS TINCTORIUS L.) AS MEDICINAL PLANTS GROWN IN IRAQ
This study was conducted to investigation the effect of humic acid and salicylic on oil yield and flavonoids glycoside of safflower plant (Carthamus tinctorius L.) grown in Iraq. After soil preparation the plant seeds were cultivated during winter growing seeds at 2015-2017 at Karbala region, South Baghdad in Iraq. The humic acid was applied at 1000, 2000 and 4000 mg/lit conception as organic flow...
A STUDY TO EVALUATE THE TOTAL ORGANIC ACID CONTENT IN URINE OF CALCIUM OXALATE RENAL STONE FORMERS AND NON STONE FORMERS
Renal stones disease is the most common disease of the urinary tract affecting about 10% of the global population. Renal stone disease is a common disorder that develops when the urine becomes overly saturated with certain microscopic substances that bind into hardened mineral deposits known as renal stones. The objective of our current study is to evaluate the total organic acids of urine of calc...
Phloroglucinol is a polyphenol and a component of phlorotannins belonging to the Laminariaceae family. Phloroglucinol has many positive effects on health. The present study was aimed to evaluate the antioxidant potential of phloroglucinol by comparing it with Standard antioxidant viz, ascorbic acid. The antioxidant potential of phloroglucinol was estimated using free radicals such as 1, 1-diphenyl...
POLY (LACTIC-CO-GLYCOLIC ACID) BASED DOUBLE EMULSION NANOPARTICLE AS ACARRIER SYSTEM TO DELIVER GLUTATHIONE SUBLINGUALLY
The sublingual delivery of drugs represents a continuing challenge, as well as an opportunity. In this study, a poly (lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) based Water-in-Oil-in-Water (w/o/w) double emulsion of nanoparticles was developed as potential platform technology, to generate sustained drug release profile and maximize the bioavailability of the glutathione (GSH). Two-level full factorial design...
In the present study, an effort has been made to evaluate of hydroxypropyl methylcellulose HPMC K15M as rate retardant polymer to sustain the release of Tramadol HCl from Tramadol HCl sustained release tablet matrix. Different amount of HPMC K15M were used in formulation of F1 to F5 where drug and polymer ratio were consequently 5:6, 5:5, 5:4, 5:3 and 5:2 in 200 mg tablet matrix. Tablets were prep...
STABILITY INDICATING METHOD DEVELOPMENT AND VALIDATION FOR SIMULTANEOUS ESTIMATION OF SITAGLIPTIN PHOSPHATE AND METFORMIN HCl IN TABLETS BY HPLC
An accurate, simple, new, precise, rugged and stability indicating method was developed for simultaneous estimation of sitagliptin and metformin HCl in tablets. The developed method was rapid and economic. The Chromatographic separation was achieved isocratically on a C-18 column by using ammonium acetate buffer (adjusted to pH 5.0 with glacial acetic acid): MeOH (60:40 v/v). Octane -1-sulfonic ac...

A quick one step, innovative approach for the Synthesis of 2-aminothiazole derivatives from easily available thiourea and alkyl / aryl ketones with the help of Oxone and Iodobenzene reaction system has been developed in aqueous acetonitrile solution. The developed procedure is applicable to several types of substituted 2-aminothiazole derivatives to get the corresponding products. The developed me...
ATTITUDE PERCEPTION AND RECOMMENDATIONS BY ”Pharm. D” STUDENTS UNDER-GOING THEIR COURSEWORK IN A GOVERNMENT UNIVERSITY – A MAILED QUESTIONNAIRE SURVEY
Background: The quality of education offered by Pharmacy institutions in the country varies widely. There are only a few institutions which maintain internationally recognized standard. Aim: To assess the pharmacy student’s (Pharm. D) perception today, their course, curriculum, and facilities provided. Methods: A postal survey was conducted on the Pharm. D students in Tamil Nadu, India, affiliat...
Statins exhibit their pharmalogical effects by competitive inhibition trough binding with active sites of enzymes. Rosuvastatin, of all statines, has the most binding interactions with the enzyme, and being the most potent statin, it is presumed that the strength of enzyme binding directly influences its potency. Reduction of derivatives of mevalonic acids results with decreased risk of cardiovasc...
SYNTHESIS OF SILVER NANOPARTICLES USING SWERTIPUNICOSIDE AND ITS ACTIVITY ON HUMAN BREAST CANCER CELL LINE (MCF-7)
In the current study, synthesis of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) using swertipunicoside was tested against human breast cancer cell line (MCF-7). The swertipunicoside was tested against the normal cell line such as vero cells to find out the toxicity of the compound. The synthesized AgNPs were characterized using UV-visible spectroscopy, X-ray powder diffraction (XRD), fourier-transform infrared sp...
