A PROSPECTIVE STUDY TO COMPARE HYPO-FRACTIONATED RADIOTHERAPY VERSUS CONVENTIONAL RADIOTHERAPY IN CARCINOMA BREAST
Background: The standard management of operable LABC is by initial modified radical mastectomy. Because of the high risk of metastasis, systemic therapy is involved as an additional integral part of treatment. The postmastectomy radiation is given to reduce the high risk (20-40%) of loco-regional relapse following adjuvant systemic therapy. The loco-regional control ranges from 85% to 90% for 10 y...
Overweight and obesity rates have been increasing sharply over recent decades in all industrialized countries, as well as in many lower income countries. According to the WHO World health statistics report 2012, globally one in six adults is obese and nearly 2.8 million individuals die each year due to overweight or obesity 1. Obesity is a close marker of important aspects of individual life style...
Lipases occupy a prominent place amongst biocatalysts as they can hydrolyze fats into fatty acids and glycerol at the water-lipid interface. Lipase production is a prime area of interest for microbiologists, process engineers, and biochemists. Recent advances in green energy have led to renewed interest in the ability of microbial lipases to catalyze trans-esterification reaction for biodiesel pro...
DESIGN AND CHARACTERIZATION OF SOLID DISPERSED FEXOFENADINE HYDROCHLORIDE BUCCAL FILM BY CENTRAL COMPOSITE DESIGN
Fexofenadine Hydrochloride (FHCl) is a second generation antihistaminic drug which is used in the treatment of allergic rhinitis and urticaria. It is a BCS class II drug and has high first pass metabolism leading to low oral bioavailability. Drug-inclusion complex with 2HPβCD was prepared by kneading method and characterized for solubility study, FTIR study and in vitro dissolution study. Nine di...
Objective: The prodigious challenge in the pharmaceutical industries was to enhance the solubility and the permeability of those drugs as key factors to improve their bioavailability. Various techniques have been used to improve the drug water solubility and release profile, and solid dispersions are considered to be the most successful techniques. The aim of the present study was to improve the s...
Hunteria is a genus of plant in family Apocynaceae. It comprises of 12 species but more prevalent are Hunteria umbellata and Hunteria zeylanica. Taditionally H. umbellata have been used in the treatment of yaws and sexually transmitted infections, stomach ache, ulcers, diabetes mellitus and dysmenorrhoea. H. zeylanica is used to cure profile but its prolonged use, particularly, at high doses shoul...
Antioxidant and antihyperlipidemic activities of the extracts of Syzygium cerasoideum were investigated by studying their in-vivo effects on triton and cholesterol induced hyperlipidemia. Highest antioxidant activity was exhibited by methanolic extract followed by chloroform extract of S. cerasoideum. In triton induced hyperlipidemic model, the groups treated with the extracts of S. cerasoideum an...
FORMULATION AND CHARACTERIZATION OF DILTIAZEM HCL MATRIX TABLETS BY EMPLOYING ELECTROLYTES WITH GUM KONDAGOGU
The objective of the present investigation is to prepare and evaluate the sustained release matrix tablets of Diltiazem HCl using a natural polymer Gum kondagogu. Diltiazem HCl was formulated as sustained release matrix tablet formulations with natural polymer by employing pharmaceutically acceptable electrolytes. Electrolytes such as Sodium carbonate, Magnesium carbonate and Calcium carbonate wer...
Simple, sensitive and convenient spectrophotometric methods (method A and method B) are developed for the determination of diclofenac diethylamine (DDEA) in pure form and in formulations. Method A is based on the oxidation of drug by Fe(III) followed by the complex formation between reduced form of Fe(III) with 1,10-phenantroline. The resulting red colored chromogen is measured at 510 nm. Method B...
DEVELOPMENT AND VALIDATION OF A NEW HPLC-UV METHOD FOR SIMULTANEOUS ESTIMATION OF CETIRIZINE HYDROCHLORIDE AND PHENYLEPHRINE HYDROCHLORIDE IN TABLET FORMULATION
A simple, rapid, and sensitive high-performance liquid chromatographic method with UV detection has been developed and validated according to the ICH guidelines for the quantitation of Cetirizine Hydrochloride (CET) and Phenylephrine Hydrochloride (PHEN) in the tablet dosage form. Chromatographic separation was carried out in a Zorbax eclipse plus, C18 column (250 mm × 4.6 mm; 5 µm particle size...
