This study was carried out to investigate the acute oral toxicity LD50 of an anti-neoplastic and a chemotherapeutic agent hydroxyurea in male albino mice by using up α Down method. The result revealed that LD50 of hydroxyurea was (7868.5 mg/kg. b.w). Orally after 24 h of exposure. That’s mean it is slightly toxic agent. To study the effect of lethal doses of hydroxyurea on the some of blood par...

PREVALENCE of AmpC β-LACTAMASE IN PLASMID RESISTANT GENE FROM UTI CLINICAL ISOLATES BY MOLECULAR TECHNIQUES
Objective: To detect the prevalence of Plasmid resistant AmpC β-lactamases gene in clinical isolates of gram negative organisms from UTI patients which produce resistance against multiple antibiotics. The gene coding for AmpC β-lactamases is also present in E. coli & Klebsiella species was not expressed because due to lack of promoter region, but the transfer of chromosomal genes to plasmids...

N-[MORPHOLINO (4-NITROPHENYL) METHYL] NICOTINAMIDE AND ITS METAL COMPLEXES: SYNTHESIS AND EXPLORATION OF THEIR BIOACTIVITY
Synthetic organic compounds, containing relatively higher number of nitrogen attracting interest in the current medical research due to their utility in chemotherapy. The development of new medicines with more number of nitrogen atoms in their structural framework is an important challenging task for medicinal chemists. The lipophilicity of Mannich bases and their metal complexes enables them to b...
A properly designed system will provide a high degree of assurance that every step, process, and change has been properly evaluated before its implementation. Validation is an important step carried out in order to control the entire process, and the process adapted to produce itself must assure that process will consistently produce the expected results and maintain the desired quality of the fin...
FORMULATION AND IN-VITRO EVALUATION OF METRONIDAZOLE LOADED HPMC K15M MUCOADHESIVE MICROCAPSULES FOR H. PYLORI INFECTION USING 32- FULL FACTORIAL DESIGNS
The purpose of the research was to develop and evaluate metronidazole loaded HPMC K15M mucoadhesive microcapsules for sustained drug release at the gastric mucosa.
