A STUDY COMPARING RESCUE MEDICATIONS: ARFORMOTEROL AND SALBUTAMOL NEBULIZATION IN EXACERBATION OF NON-SEVERE ASTHMA AT A TERTIARY CARE CENTER, NOT NEEDING HOSPITALIZATION
Objectives: Arformoterol is the (R, R) - enantiomer of formoterol, a short and long acting β-2 agonist bronchodilator and is distinguishable from the racemic (R, R/S,S) - diasteriomer of formoterol, which is most commonly used. Some in vitro data show significant bronchodilatation, inhibition of inflammation and marked baseline airway reversibility with arformoterol. Yet, there is a dearth of stu...
Identification of protein-ligand interactionnetworks on a proteome scale is crucial to address a wide range of biological problems such as correlating molecular functions to physiological processes and designing safe and efficient therapeutics. In this study we have developed a novel computational strategy to identify ligand binding profiles of proteins across gene families and applied it to predi...
A new RP-HPLC method was developed for Mephenesin (MEP) and Ibuprofen (IBU) and validated as per ICH guidelines. Good chromatographic separation of Mephenesin and Ibuprofen was achieved by using Agilent C18 column (150mm×4.6mm, 3.2µ p.s). The system was operated at ambient temperature using a mobile phase consisting of Acetonitrile, 0.01M potassium dihydrogen phosphate pH 3.0 (60:40 v/v) isocrat...
SIMULTANEOUS DETERMINATION TRACE LEVELS OF VITAMIN B1 AND VITAMIN B9 IN HUMAN SAMPLES BY ULTRASOUND-ASSISTED DISPERSIVE LIQUID-LIQUID MICROEXTRACTION COUPLED WITH HPLC-UV
Ultrasound-assisted dispersive liquid-liquid micro extraction (UA-DLLME) was proposed for simultaneous determination of trace levels of Vitamin B1 (thiamine) and Vitamin B9 (folic acid) in the human urine and serum samples. High performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) coupled with chemometrics method was employed to analysis the extraxtants. Objective: The optimal conditions of the extraction rec...
The compound 2, 6-diamino-3-phenylazopyridine hydrochloride salt is a genito-urinary antiseptic drug under the trade name Pyridinium. This study is directed towards the occurrence of an oxidation reaction to convert the tertiary amine present in 2, 6-diamino-3-phenylazopyridine hydrochloride to form an N-oxide derivative as an impurity in the process for its preparation. This was done by the indep...
Anemia is a complication commonly encountered in malignancy, especially of hematological origin, either at presentation or during the course of treatment. Anemia of chronic disease, a condition characterized by disordered iron metabolism, shortened RBC half-life and inefficient erythropoiesis, is the major contributor to cancer anemia. Anemia effects up to 90% of Cancer patients with more than 6...
SPECTROSCOPIC CHARACTERISATION AND SYNTHESIS OF Cu(II) AND Ni(II) COMPLEXES WITH NITROGEN AND SULPHUR DONOR BIDENTATE SCHIFF’S BASE LIGAND
The complexes of Cu(II) and Ni(II) having the general composition ML2X2 (where L= 2-benzoylpyridine thiosemicarbazone, M=Ni(II),Cu(II), and X=Cl-, NO3-,SO42-, OAc-) have been synthesised and were characterised by IR, elemental analysis, magnetic susceptibility, UV-Vis, conductivity, mass spectrometry and EPR spectral studies. The IR spectral data indicates that the ligand behave as a bidentate l...
Aim: The study was done to evaluate the antibacterial and antifungal activity of the leaves of Colocasia esculenta Linn. Materials and Methods: Fresh tender leaves of C.esculenta collected, air-dried at room temperature, grounded to a fine powder and extracted with ethanol. The antibacterial and antifungal activity of C.esculenta compared to standard antibiotics was assessed by disc diffusion meth...
The objective of the study to formulate and evaluate of pulsatile drug delivery containing combination of domperidone and paracetamol for the treatment of migraine which is used to deliver the drug at specific time as per pathophysiological need of the disease and improvement of therapeutic efficacy and patient compliance. Domperidone and paracetamol in the core tablet was formulated with differen...
N-mannich bases of benzimidazole derivatives can work against convulsions. Docking used for virtual screening of database and for the prediction of the strongest binders based on various scoring functions. Docking studies were carried out on different benzimidazole derivaties for better anticonvulsant activity which is important for the development of new class of inhibitors. Protein–ligand inte...
