SYNTHESIS AND ANTI-MYCOBACTERIAL ACTIVITY OF SOME NOVEL ANACARDIC ACID DERIVATIVES FROM CASHEW NUT SHELL LIQUID
Synthesis and anti-mycobacterial activity of some novel derivatives of anacardic acid viz., 2-Ethoxy-6-pentadecyl benzamide (APHK-1), 1-(2-methoxy-6-pentadecylbenzyl)-4-hydroxy ethylpiperazine (APHK-2), 1- (2-hydroxy-6-pentadecyl)- N- (hydroxyl ethylaminoethyl) benzamide (APHK-3) and compounds 20-34 from saturated anacardic acid which was obtained from natural product cashew nut shell liquid (CNSL...
The main aim of the study was to scientifically validate the free radical scavenging activity of classically prepared Rasasindura (Red sulphide of mercury). With this intention Rasasindura (Red sulphide of mercury) was subjected to the screening of free radical scavenging activity in rat’s liver homogenate with four parameters like lipid peroxidation (LPO), super oxide dismutase (SOD), catalase ...
The objective of the present study is to develop a pharmaceutically stable sustained release matrix tablets of Baclofen and perform the pre-compression, post compression and in-vitro evaluation studies of developed formulation. In this study sustained release matrix tablets of Baclofen were prepared by wet granulation method using mannitol, HPMC K4M, sodium alginate, HPMC K15 in various concentrat...
DEVELOPMENT AND VALIDATION OF HPTLC METHOD FOR ESTIMATION OF CARBAMAZEPINE IN BULK DRUG AND FORMULATIONS
A new, simple, and rapid high-performance thin-layer chromatographic method was developed and validated for quantitative determination of Carbamazepine. Carbamazepine was chromatographed on silica gel 60 F254 TLC plate using Ethyl acetate: Methanol (9: 1 v/v) as mobile phase. Carbamazepine was quantified by densitometric analysis at 239 nm. The method was found to give compact spots for the drug. ...
ANTIPLASMODIAL ACTIVITY OF EXTRACTS OF KHAYA SENEGALENSIS (DERS.) A. JUS (MELIACEAE) AND MELIA AZEDARACH L., PLANTS OF SENEGALESE TRADITIONAL MEDICINE
Two medicinal plants (Khaya senegalensis and Melia azedarach), frequently used by a large part of the Senegalese population and in particular that of the natural region of Casamance in the traditional treatment of malaria, were selected to study phytochemistry and to compare the antimalarial activity of the different parts used (leaves, bark, and seeds). The extraction of these drugs was carried o...
FOLATE ANCHORED CONJUGATES OF POLY (AMIDOAMINE) (PAMAM) DENDRIMER FOR CONTROLLED SITE SPECIFIC DELIVERY OF PIROXICAM IN ARTHRITIC RATS
The purpose of the present study was to synthesize and evaluate the potential of folate-G.4.0-PAMAM dendrimer conjugates as acceptable vehicle for site specific delivery of piroxicam (PXM) to inflammatory regions and to determine its targeting efficiency in carreganan induced arthritic rats. PXM was selected as a model acidic anti inflammatory drug. Folic acid was linked to the surface amino gro...
This study aimed to introduce antibacterial nanofibers, produced by electrospinning as a novel technique in constructing nanostructured materials. In the electrospinning technique, a high voltage is applied to a polymer solution to overcome the surface tension. A charged polymer jet is ejected to a grounded electrode. As the solvent is evaporated, the electrospun fiber with diameter from micromete...
Traditional medicines, derived from medicinal plants, are used by about 60% of the world's population. Plants of the genus Terminalia which consist of about 200-250 species are widely used as traditional medicine. The aim of this study was that review morphologic and toxonomic characteristics, pharmacological effects, traditional usage and products that derived of Terminalia in reports that publis...
A NOVEL RP-HPLC METHOD FOR SIMULTANEOUS ESTIMATION OF DAPAGLIFLOZIN AND SAXAGLIPTIN IN BULK AND PHARMACEUTICAL DOSAGE FORM
In the present work, a rapid, specific, accurate and precise Reversed phase high performance liquid chromatographic (RP-HPLC) method has been developed and validated for simultaneous determination of Dapagliflozin and Saxagliptin in bulk and pharmaceutical dosage form. Successful chromatographic separation of Dapagliflozin and Saxagliptin was carried out with Inertsil-ODS, C18 column (250 × 4.6 m...
Objective: The purpose of the study was to evaluate the effect of an Ayurvedic formulation Varanadi kashayam to inhibit pancreatic lipase activity in-vitro. It also focuses on antioxidant activity, total phenol, flavonoid and phenolic acid content of fractions of Varanadi kashayam and HPTLC fingerprinting of fractions. Methods: Fractionation of Varanadi kashayam was done by using five solvents of ...
