Preformulation testing is the first step in the rational development of dosage forms of a drug substance. The preformulation investigations confirm that there are no significant barriers to the compound’s development as a marketed drug. The formulation scientist uses this information to develop an efficacious, stable and safe dosage form. The main objective of the present research work was to do...
DISCOVERY OF NEW ANTI-FUNGAL PHYTOCHEMICAL PDHC (PROPANE-DIYL-BIS-HEXAHYDRO-ISOCHROMENE) ISOLATED FROM ALTERNANTHERA SESSILIS LEAVES
This study reports the potential of Alternanthera sessilis leaves as antioxidant, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and anti-diabetic agent and also the characterization of a novel phytochemical from A. sessilis using bio-activity guided extraction. Antimicrobial property was studied against five bacterial pathogens, Escherichia coli (MTCC: 1687), Bacillus cereus (MTCC: 0430), Klebsiella pneumonia ...
Spilanthes acmella (SA) commonly known as “Akarkara” frequently available in most of the areas of India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, China, Japan, and Thailand; is well reputed in the indigenous system of medicine for its medicinal use in toothache and rheumatic fever. The present study was aimed to evaluate its traditional use in liver diseases using the in-vivo model of rabbits. The Spilanthes ac...
Traditional medicine is finding more significance and application today, particularly when we are facing difficulty in the management of numerous medical conditions. More effective and palatable drug dosage forms are needed in the modern era. The recent trend in traditional medicine dosage forms is to enhance the solubility, bioavailability, pharmacological activity, stability, reduce the toxicity...
ANTIMICROBIAL RESISTANCE PATTERN OF ENTEROAGGREGATIVE ESCHERICHIA COLI ISOLATED FROM ACUTE DIARRHEA OF PEDIATRIC PATIENT UNDER FIVE IN KANPUR REGION
Enteroaggregative Escherichia coli (EAEC) strains are causal agents of persistent diarrhea in developing countries. Enteroaggregative Escherichia coli strains (EAEC) are an emerging type of diarrheagenic E. coli. We aimed to isolate, identify and characterize the E. coli pathotypes and study their antibiotic resistance in children under five with diarrhea in Kanpur region, India. Children und...
PERMEATION ENHANCERS COMPATIBLE WITH TRANSDERMAL DRUG DELIVERY SYSTEMS OVERCOMING THE SKIN BARRIER FUNCTIONS: CURRENT AND FUTURE PROSPECTS
Transdermal drug delivery system (TDDS) provides a leading edge over injectables and oral routes by increasing patient compliance and avoiding the first-pass metabolism respectively. Transdermal delivery not only provides controlled, constant administration of the drug, but also allows continuous input of drugs with short biological half-lives and eliminates pulsed entry into the systemic circulat...
CLINICAL STUDY ON INGUDI (BALANITES AEGYPTIACA LINN. DELILE.) WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO ITS ROLE IN WOUND HEALING
Man, the superior most of all species has always been remaining in a search of One Prime Goal: “The perfect health”. From Vedic era to space age, all the researches have been directed by the eminent scholars to achieve the same. Vrana (wound) is one of the critical conditions which have been managed by human being from starting of civilization. The present work is a substantial step for wound ...
Background: Quercetin is one of the important bioflavonoids present in more than twenty plants material and which is known for its anti-inflammatory, antihypertensive, vasodilator effects, antiobesity, antihyper-cholesterolemic and antiatherosclerotic activities. Free-radical is one of the key factors for the development of diseases such as hypertension, vascular disorders, and metabolic syndrome....
INVESTIGATION OF IN-VITRO THROMBOLYTIC AND IN-VIVO ANTIPYRETIC, ANTIDEPRESSANT POTENTIALITY AND ANALGESIC ACTIVITY WITH PHYTO-CHEMICAL NATURE OF METHANOLIC EXTRACT OF NYMPHOIDES HYDROPHYLLA
Nymphoides hydrophylla (NH) is mainly an aquatic herb of Menynthaceae family and traditionally used to treat fever, insect bites, different ulcers, and also to wash skin, where parasitic affection occurs. In this study, methanolic extract of Nymphoides hydrophylla (NH) plant was examined for the determination of thrombolytic, antipyretic, Central Nervous System (CNS) and analgesic activities. The ...
Cellular damage arising from free radical is one of the fundamental mechanism underlying a number of human neurodegenerative disorder like diabetes, inflammation, Alzheimer’s disease, autoimmune pathologic and digestive system disorder. Thus antioxidant plays an important role in the treatment of such disease. The present study aims at a comparative evaluation of ethyl acetate, hexane and methan...
