EVALUATION OF RATIONAL USAGE OF ANTIMICROBIAL AGENTS IN THE PAEDIATRIC DEPARTMENT AT TERTIARY TEACHING CARE HOSPITAL, GUJRAT
Background: Prescription of drugs which needs to be continuously assessed and refined according to disease progression. It not only reflects the physician’s knowledge about drugs but also know the pathophysiology of diseases and attitude towards rational prescribing. Methods: Retrospective study was carried out by collecting 350 prescriptions containing antimicrobial agents of the indoor patie...

Resolvins and lipoxins endue a novel way of approaching aspirin mechanism of action by developing models. Recent advances in research of aspirin from starting point Willow bark (Salix alba) to resolvins and lipoxins along with their repurposing network. Therefore, aspirin have a big impact on most interesting areas of research. Aspirin and there interaction with several targets molecules (Magic sh...
Suddhi is a unique process of detoxification which is employed topotentiate as well as enhance therapeutic properties the effect of raw drugs. Nabhi (Aconitum ferox), a herbal poisonous rhizome commonly known as aconitum is used extensively in various Siddha formulations, with great therapeutic significance. Siddha system recommends the administration of Nabhi only after suddhi (purification) in...
In the present study, we investigated neurobehavioral activity of ethanol extract of the aerial parts of Derris trifoliata (Lour.) in mice as a part of a psychopharmacological screening of this plant. The effects of the plant extract on CNS were studied by using potentiation of phenobarbitone-induced sleeping time and exploratory behavior in mice. The crude extract (500 mg/kg body weight) signific...
β-CYFLUTHRIN-INDUCED IMPAIRMENT IN NEUROTRANSMITTERS, TESTICULAR FUNCTION AND GENE EXPERISSIONS OF MALE RATS: THE PROTECTIVE ROLE OF OMEGA-3
The present study was designed to evaluate the protective effect of omega-3 against β-cyfluthrin (β-cyf)-induced neurotransmitters’ impairment, oxidative damage, testicular toxicity and genotoxicity. Adult male Wistar rats were divided equally into four groups: Group (I): Control, Group (II): β-cyf (5 mg/kg body weight/day), Group (III): omega-3 (400 mg/kg body weight/da y) + β-cyf (5 mg/kg ...
Sterility is the complete absence of any viable microorganism in a drug product. The Specification of sterility is unchanging and is independent of the kind of manufacturing Process. Sterilisation of the final product in its container closure system or aseptic manufacturing is followed. Under Terminal sterilisation usually it involves filling and sealing product containers under high quality Envir...
Objective: In the present investigation, pharmacognostical, physicochemical characteristics, thin layer chromatography and anthelmintic activity of different extracts of Swertia alata Royle were studied. Methods: Different types of preliminary and phytochemical analysis and quantitative estimation have been done along with HPTLC fingerprinting. Two concentrations (30 mg/mL and 60 mg/mL) of differe...
VALIDATION OF CLEANING PROCEDURE FOR ELIMINATION OF OFLOXACIN AND METRONIDAZOLE BENZOATE FROM MIXING EQUIPMENT BY USING UV SPECTROSCOPY
This research manuscript describes simple, sensitive, accurate, precise and repeatable UV spectroscopic method for the simultaneous determination of Metronidazole (MET) and Ofloxacin (OFL) in suspension dosage form). Metronidazole has absorbance maxima at 318.0 nm and Ofloxacin has absorbance maxima at 294 nm in Methanol and Water (50:50) solvent. The linearity was obtained in the concentration ra...
Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is a micro vascular disorder affecting the retina of the eye. Many genes have been identified for its pathogenesis. Endoglin (ENG) is one of the candidate gene involved in DR. Several literature studies helped us understand that the in vitro and in vivo studies of these candidate genes had demonstrated the role of a new gene called endoglin (ENG) capable of inhibiting ang...
