Over the last decade the incidence of candidiasis has dramatically increased. To fight candidal infections vaccines with immune modulating properties have been actively investigating in recent years. In our previous studies it was found that the immunobiological drug under the conditional name “Candidocyde” based on the antigens of C. albicans and C. tropicalis fungi possessed the protective a...
TEMPLATE SYNTHESIS AND CHARACTERIZATION OF LANTHANIDE(III) COMPLEXES OF 21-MEMBERED UNSYMMETRICAL PENTAAZA MACROCYCLIC SCHIFF BASES BEARING PENDANT ARM. IDENTICAL FRAME WORK: PART II
A series of discrete mononuclear lanthanide(III) complexes of H2L1 [Ln(H2L1)(NO3)2]NO3.nH2O (Ln = La, Ce, Pr, Nd, Sm, Eu, Gd, Tb, Y; n = 1 for Ce; n = 2 for La, Sm, Gd and Y; n = 3 for Pr, Nd, Eu, and Tb) have been prepared by the condensation of Schiff-bases with the precursor compounds namely, 2,6-diformyl-4-methylphenol, 1,5-diamino-3-azamethypentane and 4,5-dimethyl-1,2-phenylenediamin...
Objective: Conventionally, sustained release pellets have been prepared in the form of reservoir systems by coating non-pareil pellets which is an expensive and tedious process. The aim of present study was to develop sustained release matrix (SRM) pellets of Nateglinide (NT), an oral antidiabetic agent, commonly used in the treatment of Type 2 Diabetes mellitus. Methods: The SRM pellet formulatio...
PREPARATION, CHARACTERIZATION AND IN-VIVO RELEASE OF NANOMEDICINE (SOLID LIPID NANOPARTICLE) ASSOCIATE WITH THE EXTRACT OF PTEROSPERMUM ACERIFOLIUM FOR THE SCREENING OF NEUROBEHAVIOURAL
Advances in nanoparticulate frameworks for enhanced medication conveyance show an extraordinary potential for the organization of urgent dynamic particles. The fundamental motivation behind creating elective medication conveyance advances is to build proficiency of medication conveyance. Pterospermum acerifolium is normal plant in India is viewed as carminative, stimulant and emmenagogue. The poin...
The objective of the study is to design gastro retentive drug delivery systems for Amoxycillin trihydrate. It was prepared with the objective to obtain site-specific drug delivery for the stomach and to extend its duration of action. The sustained release of amoxicillin is desired because of its short biological half-life. The preparation was carried out by using guar gum as a carrier in the form ...
EVALUATION OF LEVOFLOXACIN VS. NORFLOXACIN; EFFECT ON BLOOD GLUCOSE PROFILE IN ALLOXAN INDUCED DIABETIC ALBINO RATS- A COMPARATIVE STUDY
Flouroquinolones (FQ) used commonly for treatment of community and hospital-acquired infections, has been prefixed with multiple adverse effects. Amongst them the glycemic variability has been attention seeking. Drug induced dysglycemia can be acute or persistent and severe too. The present study is designed to evaluate and compare the actions of Levofloxacin vs. Norfloxacin in altering blood gluc...
In the present study,FDDS of Famotidine, a copmpetative inhibitor of histamine H2 receptors were prepared by using natural gums viz. xanthan gum and guar gum at different drug to gum ratio using sodium bicarbonate and citric acid as gas generating agents and lactose as diluent.FDDS tablets were prepared by wet granulation technique using PVP K30 as granulating agent. The prepared FDDS tablets were...
Ischemic heart disease (IHD) is the major cause of morbid-mortality in most countries. The involvement of oxidative stress (OS) in the development of atherosclerosis, ischemic cardiopathy triggering phenomen, has been investigated. Serum total homocysteine (Hcy) concentration was measured by fluorescence polarization immunoessay. Plasma levels of substances reacting with thiobarbituric acid (TBARS...
COMPARATIVE STUDY OF OVERLAPPING GENES IN THE GENOMES OF MYCOPLASMA HOMINIS AND MYCOPLASMA PENETRANS
Overlapping genes are pairs of adjacent genes whose coding regions are partially or entirely overlapping. Overlapping genes in prokaryotes are a means to minimize genome size and increase the density of genetic information. Overlapping genes play an important role in genome reduction of Mycoplasmas during the course of their degenerative evolution. In this study overlapping genes in the genomes of...
Proniosomes based drug delivery systems have potential as a significant drug carrier in a variety of therapeutic applications. The objective of the present study was to investigate in vitro sonophoretic transdermal delivery of Losartan Potassium (LP) across albino rat skin using proniosomal gel and its comparison with aquasonic gel. Proniosomes of LP were fabricated with L-a-lecithin (egg yolk), c...
