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...

The objective of the present study was to develop cyclodextrin-based nanosponge based topical gel of tazoretene using cross-linker diphenylcarbonate and Carbopol® Ultrez 10 NF polymer. The β-Cyclodextrin nanosponges were prepared using various concentrations of β-Cyclodextrin and diphenyl carbonate and characterized. Based on evaluation parameters the β-Cyclodextrin nanosponges formulations (N...
The work aimed to prepare super porous hydrogels (SPHs) of Amoxicillin trihydrate to release the drug in a sustained manner in the gastric environment and study the polymeric ratio and pore effect formers on the physicomechanical properties and drug release kinetics of the formulations. Fourier Transform Infra-Red (FTIR) studies were done to check the compatibility of the drug with the polymers. T...
ISOLATION, CHARACTERIZATION AND EVALUATION OF ANTI-ULCER ACTIVITY OF PHYTOCONSTITUENTS PRESENT IN MORINGA OLEIFERA LEAF
Moringa oleifera leaf is widely used in the traditional medicine system and also used as a food by different communities and local tribes of Assam in India. Moringa oleifera leaf contains various bioactive compounds such as alkaloids, flavonoids, rutin, steroids, etc. The flavonoids quercetin act as an anti-ulcer agent, and rutin have a gastro cytoprotective effect i.e., present in M. oleifera lea...
DEVELOPMENT AND VALIDATION OF A SENSITIVE HIGH-PERFORMANCE LIQUID CHROMATOGRAPHY (HPLC) METHOD FOR THE ESTIMATION OF CURCUMIN IN RAT PLASMA
Curcumin is used as a potent anti-inflammatory agent in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and its clinical pharmacokinetics requires a sensitive method for estimation of its plasma concentration. Hence the aim of the study was to develop a rapid, selective, and sensitive HPLC method coupled with UV detection for the determination of Curcumin in rat plasma. The process of elution was carried ou...
Aceclofenac is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug indicated for symptomatic treatment of pain and inflammation. Aceclofenac is a BCS Class II drug with low solubility and high permeability, thus solid dispersion is one of the promising techniques used for enhancement of solubility and dissolution rate. The intent of the present study was to formulate and evaluate aceclofenac matrix tablets by ...
The purpose of the present study was to optimize palbociclib-loaded solid lipid nanoparticles (SLNs) by evaluating the relationship between design factors and experimental data. A three-factor, three-level Box-Behnken design (BBD) was used for the optimization procedure, choosing the amount of tricapric, cremophor RH40 and soy lecithin, as independent variables. The chosen dependent variables were...
Background: Satranidazole is a class II drug per biopharmaceutical classification systems with poor aqueous solubility and antiprotozoal and anti-bacterial properties. Aim: Therefore, the purpose of the present study was to enhance the solubility of Satranidazole using a self-emulsified drug delivery system (SEDDS). Methods: SEDDS was prepared using Satranidazole (10 mg) and dissolved in the oil p...
ASSOCIATION OF LEVELS OF VITAMIN-D AND MANNOSE-BINDING LECTIN IN CASES OF DENGUE FEVER IN RURAL INDIA
Background: Dengue is an arthropod-borne viral disease caused by the dengue virus (DENV). DENV is an RNA virus that belongs to the Flavivirus genus. The incidence of dengue has grown in the recent decade globally. The World Health Organization (WHO) considers dengue as a major global public health challenge in the tropic and sub-tropic nations.
