QUALITY BY DESIGN APPROACH FOR THE DEVELOPMENT AND VALIDATION OF SAXAGLIPTIN BY RP-HPLC WITH APPLICATION TO FORMULATED FORMS
Quality by Design (QbD) is a philosophy that refines the level of knowledge associated with a product that uses process understanding to deliver a product with the desired critical quality attributes. The objective of this present study was to develop and demonstrate an integrated multivariate approach to develop and quantify the constituent concentrations of saxagliptin drug in its pure and formu...
Casuarina equisetifolia (Casuarinaceae) is considered a medicinal plant and is traditionally used for the treatment of diarrhoea. Preliminary phytochemical screening of methanolic extract of the aerial bark revealed the presence of carbohydrates, alkaloids, proteins, glycosides, saponins, flavonoids and tannins. The extract reduced contractions in isolated ileum induced by spasmogens like ACh, His...
