EVALUATION OF MULTITARGETED ANTIPSYCHOTIC ACTIVITY OF UNMADGAJAKESARI – A HERBOMINERAL FORMULATION – AN ANIMAL EXPERIMENTAL STUDY
Schizophrenia is a chronic and complex mental disorder characterized by hallucinations and delusions that significantly affect emotions, behavior, and mental processes. Currently used antipsychotics are characterized by the multireceptor mode of action (antagonism of dopamine D2 and serotonin receptors), there is no consensus regarding an "ideal" target engagement. Moreover, they are associated wi...
VALIDATED KINETIC SPECTROPHOTOMETRIC DETERMINATION OF DRUGS USING ALKALINE POTASSIUM PERMANGANATE OXIDATION
A simple and sensitive kinetic method is described for the determination of drugs viz., Bendamustine hydrochloride (BEN), Ciprofloxacin hydrochloride (CIP), Dorzolamide hydrochloride (DOR), Pantoprazole sodium (PAN), Warfarin sodium (WAR). This method is based upon a kinetic investigation of drug oxidation with alkaline potassium permanganate. Kinetics of the oxidation reaction is followed spectro...
SYNTHESIS NEW MOLECULARLY IMPRINTED POLYMERS FOR THE SELECTIVE ELECTRODES OF ISOPROPAMIDE FROM PHARMACEUTICAL SAMPLES
Liquid electrodes of polymers imprinted with Isopropamide (ISP) were synthesized based on precipitation polymerization mechanism. The molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP) and non-imprinted polymers (NIP) were synthesized using (ISP) as a template. In the polymerization process, 2-Hydroxyethyl meth acrylate (2-HEMA) and 2-Vinyl pyridine (2-VP) were used as monomers. Di-vinylbanzene (DVB) was used as...
The aim of the present study is to develop and evaluate the immediate release tablet of Vilazodone by direct compression method. The superdisintegrant crospovidone (CP), croscarmellose sodium (CCS), sodium starch glycolate (SSG), and Locust beam gum were used for the immediate release of drug from the tablet. Optimization of superdisintegrant concentration that can control the release of the drug ...
A FACILE NOVEL SYNTHESIS OF ThO2/Fe3O4 NANOCOMPOSITE WITH ENHANCED PHOTOCATALYTIC ACTIVITY FOR THE DEGRADATION OF MALACHITE GREEN UNDER VISIBLE LIGHT IRRADIATION
An innovative magnetically separable ThO2/Fe3O4 nanocomposite was successfully synthesized by hydrothermal method. The synthesized ThO2/Fe3O4 nanocomposite was characterized by UV-DRS, FT-IR, XRD, HR-TEM, BET, and TGA techniques. XRD and HR-TEM images displayed the overall spherical shape and confirmed the formation of well crystalline ThO2/Fe3O4 nanocomposite. The catalytic efficiency of ThO2/Fe3...
The purpose of this research was to develop novel solid dispersions (SDs) of BCS class IV drug, canagliflozin hemihydrate (CFZ) using Eudragit® E PO (EE PO) as a carrier, to enhance its solubility and dissolution rate. Solvent evaporation technique was used to prepare SDs. The SDs were evaluated for saturated solubility, in-vitro dissolution study, solid-state characterization using FTIR, DSC, XR...
IN- VITRO ANTIOXIDANT PROPERTIES, ACUTE AND SUBACUTE TOXICITY STUDIES OF TEPHROSIA CALOPHYLLA ON ALBINO WISTAR RATS
The evaluation of acute oral toxicity of chloroform extract of Tephrosia calophylla (CETC) and methanolic extract of Tephrosia calophylla (METC) and sub-acute toxicity of CETC was done on albino Wistar rats. The animals (female) were divided into four groups containing 3 animals in each group normal control, and 200, 400 and 800 mg/kg of freshly prepared extracts respectively, every 24 h orally fo...
RISK OF DEVELOPING DEPRESSION AND ITS IMPACT ON QUALITY OF LIFE IN PATIENTS WITH POLYCYSTIC OVARY SYNDROME – A SOUTH INDIAN SCENARIO
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is one of the most common reproductive endocrine disorders, affecting the patient’s psychological functioning and satisfaction with life. Settings and Design: Tertiary care hospital based case-control study was conducted. Material and Methods: the study was effectuated in 372 patients in total, including an equal number of cases and controls.PHQ-9 was used to det...
FTIR SPECTROPHOTOMETRIC METHOD FOR THE SIMULTANEOUS ESTIMATION OF ARTEMETHER AND LUMEFANTRINE IN BULK AND FORMULATIONS
A FTIR method was developed to estimate Artemether and Lumefantrine simultaneously in bulk as well as in formulations. It is based on the measurement of absorption of radiation at the absorption band of ether at 1113.10-1091.77 cm-1 for ART and phenyl substitution band at 893.65-857.08 cm-1 for LUM, because those absorption bands did not occur in excipients present in a pharmaceutical preparation....
GC-MS ANALYSIS OF BIOACTIVE COMPONENTS ON THE FRUIT EXTRACTS OF ARTOCARPUS HIRSUTUS LAM.: A POTENTIAL WILD EDIBLE PLANT
Wild fruits play a significant role in human nutrition, especially as sources of carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins, minerals, dietary fibers, and enormous medicinal potential. Local people in different parts of the country have learned to live on many wild edible fruits available around their localities. Artocarpus hirsutus Lam. is an important wild edible fruit plant belongs to the family Moracea...
