AIDS, a pandemic disease caused by HIV has a high mortality rate. Therapeutic failures have risen due to the emergence of resistant viral strains and adverse side-effects of Anti-HIV drugs. Thus, there arises a need to develop novel and promising anti-HIV drugs. BMS-378806 (BMS-806) inhibits the initial stages of HIV-1 infection by blocking the binding of viral gp120 protein to host-cell CD4 recep...

This class approved by food and drug administration in 2013 for the treatment of diabetes, with a unique mechanism of action. SLGT-2 proteins are macromolecule reabsorb the filtered glucose molecule from (PCT) in the kid...
DEVELOPMENT, CHARACTERIZATION AND IN-VITRO ANTIFUNGAL EVALUATION OF PLANTEROSOMAL GEL OF GANODERMA LUCIDUM
Planterosomal gel exhibit better pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic profile than the conventional herbal extracts. The objective of the present research work was to develop, characterize and evaluate the in-vitro antifungal activity of planterosomal gel in comparison to pure plant extract. Planterosomal gel of Ganoderma lucidum was prepared by incorporating gelling agent in planterosomal suspensi...
HPTLC METHOD DEVELOPMENT AND VALIDATION FOR IDENTIFICATION AND QUANTIFICATION OF LUPEOL IN THE LEAVES OF ALSTONIA SCHOLARIS
In ancient literature plant Alstonia scholaris (Apocynaceae) has been considered medicinally important in the treatment of various ailments. Extracts of this plant have shown wide spectra of pharmacological activities like anti-cancer, hepatoprotective, anti-inflammatory, anti-diabetic, etc. These activities can be attributed to the depositories of various phytoconstituents like alkaloids, flavono...
Rubella is an eradicable illness on the grounds of immunization against it produces solid protection. The name rubella comes from the Latin language, and it means “little red”. In olden times people thought that rubella was a variant of measles. German literature first described it as a separate disease, and hence it was also called “German Measles”. People are the main reservoir of the in...
Warfarin, a vitamin K antagonist has been the leading oral anticoagulant since early 1940s despite limitations like slow onset and offset of action, variations in metabolism, multiple food and drug interactions, narrow therapeutic index and need for routine laboratory monitoring. Rivaroxaban, a direct factor Xa inhibitor is a recently introduced orally effective novel anticoagulant offering improv...

IN-VITRO STUDIES ON OIL DEGRADING BACTERIA ISOLATED FROM OIL CONTAMINATED SOIL OF VANIYAMBADI AND AMBUR AREAS OF VELLORE DISTRICT
The oil polluted soil has many hydrocarbons which can be degraded by microbes. These oil degrading microbes were isolated from the oil contaminated soil through plate and dilution technique. The oil contaminated soils were collected from the oil spilled places of Vaniyambadi and Ambur areas of Vellore District, Tamil nadu, India. Through the biochemical tests, the isolated bacterial strains were i...
A NEW TARGET FOR DIABETES: HOMOLOGY MODELING AND IDENTIFICATION OF POTENTIAL LEADS THROUGH VIRTUAL SCREENING
Monocarboxylate transporter 11 (MCT11) is a transporter protein encoded by the SLC16A11 gene. MCT11 protein is found to play an important role in many biological activities in different species. MCT11 helps in hepatic lipid metabolism by catalyzing the transport of pyruvate molecules across the membrane. It is also found to be involved in regulation of Diabetes. Therefore, MCT11 protein is taken i...
DEVELOPMENT AND VALIDATION OF UPLC METHOD FOR ESTIMATION OF % RELEASE OF SOME ANTI-HIV DRUGS IN FIXED DOSE COMBINATION
A simple, accurate and precise UPLC method was developed and validated for dissolution testing of Lamivudine, Tenofovir disoproxil fumarate and Efavirenz in tablet dosage form. The separation was achieved under optimized chromatographic condition on an Acquity UPLC BEH (50 mm × 2.1 mm, 1.7 μm) column with mobile phase consist of 20 mM potassium dihydrogen phosphate buffer pH 2.5: acetonitrile wi...
