Carvedilol is used for hypertension, angina pectoris and in symptomatic heart failure. It has a short half life of 2h and bioavailability of 25%. Therefore the present investigation is concerned with the development of the buco-mucoadhesive films, which were designed to prolong the buccal residence time, to increase penetration through buccal mucosa and thus increase the bioavailability and its ha...
Background: Alcoholic liver disease is a spectrum of alcohol induced injury that includes fatty liver, alcoholic hepatitis and alcoholic cirrhosis. Corticosteroids are used in cases of severe alcoholic hepatitis with Maddrey’s Discriminant Function score > 32. However, many of the patients who are being managed by corticosteroids are non responders and mortality increases in such patients. Li...
Objective: To assess the pattern of adverse drug reactions (ADRs) in a tertiary care hospital. Materials and methods: This study was conducted in VSS Medical College, Burla, Odisha from October 2012 to September 2014. ADRs collected from various clinical departments were compiled and analyzed for distribution of age, gender, department, drug class and organ system. Assessment of causality, severit...
TRACE LEVEL QUANTIFICATION OF CYPIONYL CHLORIDE IN TESTOSTERONE CYPIONATE BY PRE COLUMN DERIVATIZATION WITH 2-BUTANOL BY GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY WITH ELECTRON IMPACT IONIZATION DETECTOR
The author has been proposed the precolumn derivatization method for the trace level quantification of cypionyl chloride in testosterone cypionate, it maybe potential impurity in the testosterone cypionate, it has to quantify in the testosterone drug Substance.

STUDY ON SAFETY AND EFFICACY OF DIFFERENT MODALITIES IN THE POST-OPERATIVE PAIN MANAGEMENT IN A TERTIARY CARE TEACHING HOSPITAL
ABSTRACT: Background: Postoperative pain control is an important part of effective postoperative care. However, 30 - 80% of postoperative patients complain about moderate to severe post-surgical pain as a result of the surgical procedure or a pre-existing disease. Aim: To assess the safety and efficacy of different modalities of postoperative pain management in post surgical wards of a tertiary ca...
CLINICAL EVALUATION OF A NEW FORMULATION OF 99mTc-TRODAT-1 FOR SPECT IMAGING IN PARKINSON PATIENTS AND VOLUNTEER SUBJECTS
This study was conducted to evaluate the clinical usefulness of new developed kit of 99mTc-TRODAT-1 to differentiate PD(Parkinson disease) from volunteer subjects. The 925-1111MBq (25-30 mCi) 99mTc-TRODAT-1 samples were reconstituted by boiling water bath method. Fourteen subjects (women = 6, men = 8, age range 24 - 72, mean = 54.4) have been participated in this approach. The control group includ...
SYNTHESIS AND IN-VITRO ANTIPROLIFERATIVE ACTIVITY OF SUBSTITUTED-2, 3-DIMETHYL-N-(3-(4-PHENYL PIPERAZIN-1-YL) PROPYL)-6, 7-DIHYDRO-5H-BENZO  ANNULENE-8-CARBOXYLIC ACIDS
Benzosuberones and phenylpiperazinyl moieties are important heterocyclic compounds which constitute many biological activities which include anti bacterial, anti fungal, anti inflammatory, antioxidant, antitubercular and anti cancer activities. A novel series of 2,3-dimethyl-N-(3-(4-phenyl piperazin-1-yl)propyl)-6,7-dihydro-5H-benzo annulene-8-carboxylic acids (5a-e) have been synthesized in go...

Here we have carried out the acute and repeated dose toxicity study on tubers of Pueraria tuberosa water extract (PTWE). For acute toxicity study, rats were orally administered a single dose of 2000 and 5000 mg/kg body weight of PTWE. For repeated dose toxicity study on rats in one set, the different doses were given daily up to 28 days to make general observation and mortality rate. In another se...
Lymphatic Filariasis is one of the most abandoned tropical diseases caused by the parasite, Brugia malayi. The existing conventional drugs act generally on the larval stages of the parasite. The enzyme asparaginyl tRNA synthetase is an excellent molecular target as it plays a crucial role in protein synthesis. Evidences based on the literature presented clues to discover the flavonoids as potentia...
