Piperine has been widely used as a bioenhancer. Secnidazole is a long-acting 5-nitroimidazole analog. It is used in the treatment of amoebiasis, giardiasis, trichomoniasis and anaerobic bacterial infection. In this study derivative of piperine was synthesized and studied for its bio enhancing the effect and this effect was compared with the bioenhancing effect of piperine. The pharmacokinetic prof...
ANALYTICAL METHOD DEVELOPMENT AND VALIDATION FOR SIMULTANEOUS DETERMINATION OF PYRANTEL PAMOATE AND FEBANTEL IN AN ORAL DOSAGE FORM BY HIGH-PERFORMANCE LIQUID CHROMATOGRAPHY (HPLC)
The present manuscript describes a new simple, specific, precise and accurate RP-HPLC development and subsequent validation for simultaneous estimation of Pyrantel pamoate and Febantel in their combined dosage form. The proposed method involves the utilization of a hypersil BDS C18 (150 × 4.6 mm, 5 µ) column, mobile phase containing acetonitrile: phosphate buffer in the ratio 85:15% v/v and 55:4...
DEVELOPMENT AND VALIDATION OF RP-HPLC METHOD FOR THE ESTIMATION OF DOXOFYLLINE AND TERBUTALINE IN PURE AND IN ITS FORMULATION
A new simple, rapid, and sensitive reversed-phase liquid chromatographic method was developed for the estimation of doxofylline and terbutaline in the tablet dosage form. The chromatographic separation was achieved on ODS C18column (150 × 4.6 mm, 5 µm) at ambient temperature and effluent monitored at 257 nm. The mobile phase consists of ammonium acetate buffer (pH adjusted to 3 with o-phosphoric...
Background: The hypothalamic pituitary adrenal (HPA) axis in asthmatic patients is influenced by many factors. Stress, cytokines and exogenous corticosteroids play an important role in regulating the HPA axis and thus affecting the adreno corticotrophic hormone (ACTH) and cortisol levels among these patients. It is well accepted that the HPA axis represents a major immune-regulatory system that pl...
