Cephalosporins are the most important type of antibiotics used vary widely. Analysis of these antibiotics is challenge because of their sensitivity and instability to different conditions. The present review is extended to find out different HPLC methods used for analysis for cephalosporins in formulations and biological fluids. The chromatographic conditions used for the analysis as well as analy...
Emulgel systems are currently of attention to the pharmaceutical scientists because of their substantial potential to act as drug delivery vehicle by incorporating a broad range of drug molecules. These are either emulsion of water in oil type or oil in water, which is gelled by mixing it with a gelling agent. Incorporation of emulsion into gel makes it a dual control release system & also inc...
EFFECT OF DIFFERENT CARBON AND NITROGEN SOURCES ON α- AMYLASE PRODUCTION FROM BACILLUS AMYLOLIQUEFACIENS
Amylases are among the most important enzymes in present-day biotechnology. The effects of various carbon and nitrogen sources on α-amylase production by submerged fermentation (smF) from Bacillus amyloliquefaciens was investigated. The study revealed that the levels of the α- amylase production varied greatly with the type and concentration of carbon and nitrogen sources used. The highest α-am...
A VALIDATED HPTLC METHOD FOR DETERMINATION OF TERBINAFINE HYDROCHLORIDE IN PHARMACEUTICAL SOLID DOSAGE FORM
An HPTLC method for estimation of Terbinafine hydrochloride in its tablet formulation has been developed. It employs aluminium backed silica gel 60 F254 TLC plates,( 100×50 mm, thickness of layer 0.2 mm), prewashed with methanol and dried at room temperature)and mobile phase comprising of Acetonitrile: 1, 4 dioxan: Hexane: Acetic acid (1:1:8:0.1) (v/v/v/v). The developing solvent was run upto 70 ...
CHEMICALLY FABRICATED SILVER NANOPARTICLES ENHANCES THE ACTIVITY OF ANTIBIOTICS AGAINST SELECTED HUMAN BACTERIAL PATHOGENS
Due to the outbreak of infectious diseases caused by different pathogenic bacteria and the development of antibiotic resistance, the pharmaceutical companies and the researchers are now searching for new unconventional antibacterial agents. Nanotechnology represents a modern and innovative approach to develop new formulations based on metallic nanoparticles with antimicrobial properties. The pot...
DETERMINATION OF PIOGLITAZONE HYDROCHLORIDE IN BULK AND PHARMACEUTICAL FORMULATIONS BY UV SPECTROPHOTOMETRIC METHOD
UV spectrophotometric method was developed and validated for the analysis of pioglitazone in tablets. The analyses were performed in Phosphate buffer (pH 7.4). Beer’s law was valid in concentration range of 10-50 mcg/ml and UV detection was done at 238 nm. The developed method was validated respect to linearity, precision, accuracy, selectivity / sensitivity applied to the determination of Piogl...
Pain is the most predominantly associated symptom with patients visit to the dental office. The pain may arise due to either an endodontic cause or a periodontic cause, but the endodontic pain type variant is the most commonly encountered by the dentists in their dental offices. Even though the endodontic pain is more common, there arises a dilemma in diagnosing and planning the treatment for the ...
ASSESSMENT OF ANTIMICROBIAL AND CYTOTOXIC ACTIVITIES OF ETHANOLIC EXTRACT OF LEAVES OF ACALYPHA HISPIDA
The ethanolic extract of leaves of Acalypha hispida was evaluated for phytochemical, cytotoxic and antibacterial activities. Phytochemical studies revealed the presence of flavonoids, saponins, glycosides, reducing sugars and steroids. Cytotoxic activity was investigated by brine shrimp (Artemia salina) lethality assay. The extract showed potent cytotoxic effect (LC50 19.95µg/ml) which is compara...
ANTI-INFLAMMATORY, ANTI-ARTHRITIC AND ANALGESIC ACTIVITY OF THE ALCOHOLIC EXTRACT OF THE PLANT URGINEA INDICA KUNTH.
This study was designed to present the observation of the pharmacological properties to the bulb of the plant. The extract of the bulb of Urginea indica Kunth were collected by using of alcoholic extraction. The anti-inflammatory action of the alcoholic Extract of the bulb of the plant Urginea indica was evaluated in rats (female) against carrageenan induced edema i.e., using plethysmographic meth...
STUDIES ON ANTIDIARRHOEAL ACTIVITY OF LEAVES OF AMORPHOPHALLUS PAEONIIFOLIUS IN EXPERIMENTAL ANIMALS
Acute diarrhoea is one of the principal causes of death in the infants, particularly in developing countries. An array of medicinal plants with anti-diarrhoeal properties has been widely used by the traditional practitioners; however, the efficacy of many of these anti-diarrhoeal conventional medicines has not been scientifically evaluated. Hence the present study was under taken to explore anti-d...
