PATTERN & PREDICTORS OF DRUG-DRUG INTERACTIONS AMONG THE PATIENTS ADMITTED IN NEUROLOGY AT A TERTIARY CARE HOSPITAL – A CROSS-SECTIONAL STUDY
Objective: Drug - drug interactions (DDI) is a permanent risk in patients with complex therapeutic regimens. Drugs commonly prescribed in Neurology contribute for most of the potentially hazardous DDI. The present study was undertaken to identify the DDI and its predictors among the patients admitted in Neurology ward. Material and Methods: An analytical cross-sectional study was conducted from Ja...
HPTLC METHOD DEVELOPMENT AND VALIDATION FOR SIMULTANEOUS ESTIMATION OF AMLODIPINE BESYLATE AND CELECOXIB IN PURE AND COMBINED DOSAGE FORM
HPTLC is simple, reliable, precise and accurate for separation and identification of drug in a combined dosage form which gives satisfactory accuracy in results when applied on amlodipine besylate (Amlo) and celecoxib (Celo). Toluene, ethyl acetate, methanol and conc. ammonia (6:5:1.5:0.3 v/v/v/v) was required as a mobile phase for separation and identification of drugs. These drugs were scanned b...
Walnuts from Northwest region of Syria was collected to determine Omega-6 (linoleic acid (LA, 18:2n-6)) and Omega-3 (α-linolenic acid (ALA, 18:3n-3)) in their oils, also called essential fatty acids (EFAs). This work was carried out using two different portions of samples. First samples were collected at harvest and second samples stored for one year under normal conditions. The extraction of...
SYNTHESIS OF NEW 2, 5, 6-SUBSTITUTED IMIDAZO[2,1-B][1,3,4]THIADIAZOLE DERIVATIVES AS POTENTIAL ANTICANCER AGENTS
A series of 2-cyclopropylimidazo [2,1-b] [1,3,4] thiadiazole derivatives 5(a-i) have been synthesized by reacting 5-cyclopropyl-1,3,4-thiadiazol-2-amine (3) and an appropriate 2-bromo-1,2-(substituted aryl) ethanones 4(a-i). Structures of these compounds were recognized by IR, 1H NMR, 13C NMR spectroscopy and Mass spectrometry. Hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF) has been identified as an important can...
The thyroid, an important part of the human endocrine system, is involved in the regulation of oxygen use, basal metabolic rate, cellular metabolism, and growth. As it acts as a regulator for the body, abnormalities of the thyroid should be reckoned with, and measures to prevent such occurrences should be followed. Hypothyroidism can be described as the inability of the thyroid gland to produce su...
Antimicrobial peptides are considered as promising and potential next-generation antibiotics on account of their broad spectrum of antimicrobial activity and unique mode of microbial killing. For therapeutic application, it is essential to consider the hemolytic or cytotoxic property of AMPs along with antimicrobial function. In the current study, an avian beta-defensin 7 (AvBD7) gene was identifi...
Highly bioactive ultra-small vancomycin doped silver nanoparticles were synthesized by the sol-gel method. The samples were characterized by UV, FR-IR, XRD, Photoluminescence, and TEM analysis. Continuous stirring helped in preparing ultra-small drug conjugate silver nanoparticles. Observation of weak (broadened peak) in XRD diffractograms indicates the formation of very small size drug conjugate ...
In the present work in mathematical modeling, quantitative structure activity relationship (QSAR) studies were performed on some quinolone derivatives as a potential antibacterial agent using statistical work. The regression analysis of the data has shown that the activities of the compound can be modeled excellently in bi-parametric model.A heurisimatedtic algorithm selects the best multiple line...
The aim of this article is to provide a wide-angle prospect of the detailed information of pharmaceutical polymers in sustained released micro-beads dosage forms. Polymers have played an integral role in the advanced drug delivery technology by providing controlled release of therapeutic agents in constant doses over long periods, cyclic dosage, and constant release of both hydrophilic and hydroph...
COMPARATIVE STUDY ON THE PHARMACOKINETICS OF IBUPROFEN ALONE OR IN COMBINATION WITH PIPERINE AND ITS SYNTHETIC DERIVATIVES AS A POTENTIAL BIOENHANCER
Ibuprofen has a higher dose (2000-2400 mg/day) that leads to several adverse effects like stomach upset, headache, bloating, hyperacidity, diarrhea, nausea, constipation, mild heartburn, ringing in your ears, vomiting and blurred vision. Piperine is a natural alkaloid obtained from piper species, principally from Piper longum and Piper nigrum (Family: Piperaceae). Piperine demonstrates excellent b...
