FORMULATION AND IN-VITRO CHARACTERIZATION OF 5-FLUOROURACIL AND FLAVONOID DUAL LIPID DRUG CONJUGATES LOADED SELF NANOMULSIFYING DRUG DELIVERY SYSTEM FOR CANCER TARGETING
Objective: The Failure in chemotherapy is mainly because of the resistance of the chemotherapeutic drugs towards the neoplastic cells. The main reason behind this study was to develop a novel combination of 5-Fluorouracil (5-FU) lipid curcumin conjugates for the treatment of cancer. Methods: In this study, the lipid group stearic acid and oleic acid was conjugated with the parent drug moiety 5-Flu...
ELECTROCHEMICAL BEHAVIOR AND ANALYSIS OF KETAMINE IN PHARMACEUTICAL FORMULATIONS BY VOLTAMMETRIC TECHNIQUES
The electrochemical behavior of Ketamine is studied by employing D.C. Polorography (DCP), Cyclic Voltammetry (CV) and Differential Pulse Polarography (DPP) in universal buffers of pH ranging from 2.0-12.0. The kinetic parameters, such as transfer coefficients, diffusion coefficients and heterogeneous forward rate constant values were evaluated by employing these techniques. Differential Pulse Pola...
The present study was an attempt to investigate the effect of extracts and fractions of Mukia maderaspatana on glycemia, lipid profile, lipoprotein level and antioxidant profile in STZ induced diabetic rats for 21 days. Diabetes was induced using streptozotocin (50 mg/kg i.p) and after the induction of diabetes the animals were given with MMEE (100 mg/kg, 200 mg/kg), MMCF (100 mg/kg) and MMBF (100...
The present study was developed a suitable protocol for callus induction and plant regeneration of Cleome gynandra L. from leaf explants. Callus was initiated from leaf explants on Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium supplemented with different concentration and combinations of plant growth regulators. They are using (5-25 µM) of BAP (6-benzyladenine), KN (kinetin), and TDZ (thidiazuron) cytokinins a...
EVALUATION OF ANTIOXIDANT POTENTIAL OF DIFFERENT EXTRACTS OF MANGO GINGER (CURCUMA AMADA ROXB.) RHIZOME
The Zingiberaceae has the great importance in the plant kingdom because the members of this family give up spices, perfumes, dyes and valuable medicines. Alongside, a number of species of this family are cultivated for flowering. Mango ginger is one of the important species of this family having medicinal and biological properties such as antiageing, antibacterial, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, ...
PROTECTIVE EFFECTS OF COCCINIA GRANDIS LEAF EXTRACT: BEHAVIOURAL, ELECTROPHYSIOLOGICAL, BIOCHEMICAL AND HISTOLOGICAL FEATURES OF DIABETIC NEUROPATHY
Present study aimed to evaluate the nociceptive, neuro-muscular coordination, electrophysiological, biochemical, and histological features of diabetic neuropathy in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats and the protective effects of Coccinia grandis leaf methanolic extract. Coccinia grandis (200 mg/kg per day) was given to diabetic rats for 3 weeks. Metformin (150 mg/kg body weight) was used as sta...
The use of natural products for the treatment of various diseases has a long history. In the present study, the anti-oxidative, cytotoxic and phytochemical properties of ethanol extract of a local variety of Piper betle leaves cultivated in Potia, Bangladesh has been investigated. The antioxidant and cytotoxic activity of the Piper betle ethanol extract were evaluated by DPPH (1, 1-diphenyl-2-picr...
The object of the study was to formulate and evaluate Aceclofenac orodispersible tablets (ODT) by wet granulation method using different super disintegrants in different concentrations. Orodispersible tablets produce rapid dissolution of drug and absorption thereby producing rapid onset of action. Five batches (AFD1, AFD2, AFD3, AFD4, AFD5) of Aceclofenac orodispersible tablets were prepared and c...
IN-VITRO EFFECTS OF PARACETAMOL ON RHEOLOGICAL PROPERTIES OF ERYTHROCYTES AND ITS ANTIOXIDANT PROPERTIES
Human erythrocytes were pre-incubated in vitro with paracetamol and then erythrocyte’s rheological properties of deformability, osmotic fragility and aggregation were evaluated after being compromised by various means. Paracetamol (1, 2, 4mg/ml) significantly prevented the loss of deformability through 5mm diameter pores of erythrocytes dehydrated with hypertonic buffer or with calcium ionophore...
Fatty acid composition of six different leafy vegetables of Bangladesh was investigated. The amount of bound fatty acids was found to be higher than the free fatty acids in all the leafy vegetables. Different fatty acids were identified and their relative proportions were determined by GLC from the leafy vegetables. ...
