ASSOCIATION BETWEEN VITAMIN D RECEPTOR FOKI POLYMORPHISM AND CHRONIC PERIODONTITIS IN SYRIAN POPULATION
Background: Chronic periodontitis (ChP) is the most common form of periodontal diseases. The progression rate may be influenced by local, systemic conditions and environmental factors that can alter the normal host response to bacterial plaque and affect the susceptibility to disease. Several studies have reported a role for vitamin D receptor (VDR) gene polymorphisms in numerous immunological act...

VALIDATED KINETIC SPECTROPHOTOMETRIC DETERMINATION OF DRUGS USING ALKALINE POTASSIUM PERMANGANATE OXIDATION
A simple and sensitive kinetic method is described for the determination of drugs viz., Bendamustine hydrochloride (BEN), Ciprofloxacin hydrochloride (CIP), Dorzolamide hydrochloride (DOR), Pantoprazole sodium (PAN), Warfarin sodium (WAR). This method is based upon a kinetic investigation of drug oxidation with alkaline potassium permanganate. Kinetics of the oxidation reaction is followed spectro...
VALIDATED STABILITY INDICATING LIQUID CHROMATOGRAPHIC METHOD FOR SIMULTANEOUS ESTIMATION OF PARACETAMOL, TRAMADOL AND DICYCLOMINE IN TABLETS
A new simple stability indicating reversed-phase liquid chromatographic method has been developed and validated for simultaneous estimation of Paracetamol, Tramadol and Dicyclomine in combined pharmaceutical dosage form. An Agilent Zorbax SB C18 (250mmx4.6mm, 5microns) column with mobile phase containing ammonium acetate: acetonitrile (700:300 v/v) was used. The flow rate was maintained at 1.0 mL/...
