Valtrate is one of the major valepotriates reported from various species of the genus Valeriana. Aim of the present study was to develop and validate analytical method for quantification of valtrate in dried roots of Valeriana jatamansi and Valeriana pyrolaefolia, both members of family Valerianaceae. Acetonitrile and water (70:30) in isocratic mode were used with an aflow rate of 1.5 mL/min (at 2...
ANTIBACTERIAL ACTIVITY OF SOME COMMON KITCHEN SPICES AGAINST ESCHERICHIA COLI, STAPHYLOCOCCUS AUREUS, SALMONELLA TYPHIAND PSEUDOMONAS AERUGINOS
The current study investigated and compared the antibacterial activity of common kitchen spices; Ginger, Turmeric, Bay leaf, and Coriander, against Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella Typhi, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The antibacterial activity of different spices was calculated by the agar well cup plate method. The concentrations, 75%, 50%, and 25%, were made for all the test sp...

DEVELOPMENT AND EVALUATION OF POMALIDOMIDE SUPERSATURABLE SELF-NANOEMULSIFYING DRUG DELIVERY SYSTEM FOR IMPROVED SOLUBILITY AND DISSOLUTION RATE
Background: Pomalidomide belongs to BCS class IV drug with low solubility and undergoes first-pass metabolism leads to reduced bioavailability of 15%. Objective: The current study aimed to develop pomalidomide Super saturable-SNEDDS to enhance solubility. Methods: Preliminary solubility studies were performed to identify oil, surfactant, and co-surfactant ratios. Pseudo tertiary phase diagram cons...
THE EFFECT OF FRACTIONS OF INDIGOFERA ASPALATHOIDES LEAF EXTRACT ON EXTEND OF LIPID PEROXIDATION AND ANTIOXIDANT STATUS IN DMBA INDUCED HAMSTER BUCCAL POUCH CARCINOMA.
Oral cancer is the sixth leading cancer globally and the leading carcinoma in the Indian subcontinent. The relatively high incidence is due to usage of tobacco, and exposure to carcinogens are frontrunners of oxidative stress-induced DNA damage. The practice of chemopreventive agents is considered to be alternative oral carcinoma. A study on novel natural chemo preventive agent-Indigofera Aspalath...
Ocular deliveries possess a challenging pharmaceutical approach due to poor absorption index through the corneal appendages and washing away of the drug through tears and lachrymal secretion. The ocular appendages lead to provide lesser bioavailability of conventional dosage forms; hence, frequent dosing is advised to get the optimum effect of the medicine. Therefore, in-situ gel offers a promisin...
There is an urgent need to replace the injection currently used for low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) multi-dose therapy with a non-invasive delivery device. In this study, unsaturated polyester resin and peroxide were used to fabricate microneedle mould by using 3M microneedle. Dissolving microneedle arrays transdermal patch was prepared by using 20 % w/v polymers of PVA and PVP (polyvinyl alco...
IN-VITRO AND IN-VIVO EVALUATION OF ANTI-ASTHMATIC ACTIVITY OF CALOTROPIS PROCERA ROOT EXTRACTS OF CALOTROPIS PROCERA
Objective: The Calotropis procera (Ait.) R.Br. (Ascelpidaeaceae) has been used traditionally as anthelmintic, depurative, diaphoretic, emetic, expectorant, febrifuge, and purgative, but no scientific reports are available in the regulation of asthmatic condition. In this present study, Calotropis procera (Ait.) R.Br. was selected to investigate scientifically to establish scientific data for its...
