PREPARATION AND EVALUATION OF FLOATING MICRO BEADS FOR GASTRO RETENTIVE DRUG DELIVERY SYSTEM OF ANTIULCER DRUG
The objective of the present investigation was to develop an alginate-HPMC K4M microbead-based gastro-retentive drug delivery system incorporating Famotidine for the treatment of gastrointestinal ulcers. The 32 full factorial designs were used for the optimization of famotidine-loaded floating microbeads. Two factors were evaluated, each at 3 levels; experimental trials were performed for all nine...

A SYSTEMATIC REVIEW OF AN INVASIVE PLANT SPECIES: VERBESINA ENCELIOIDES (CAV.) BENTH. & HOOK. F. EX A. GRAY
An introduced, non-native, exotic, or alien species are those that grow in areas outside of their natural habitats. They get introduced deliberately or accidentally into new areas by anthropogenic activities or naturally through water, wind, etc. In non-native areas, these species invade rapidly due to the non-availability of natural enemies (prey) in a new habitat. Therefore, these fast-spreading...
Quorum sensing is a peculiar mechanism of microbial communication through the induction of various signalling autoinducer molecules having several gene expression regulatory activities of different virulence factors that control microbial. This enables a systematic path of inhibiting microbial growth and its infection production efficacy by indirectly regulating the Quorum sensing activity of the ...

FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPLE AND APPLICATIONS OF IONTOPHORESIS IN CONTEMPORARY ADVANCEMENT OF DRUG DELIVERY SYSTEM: A CRITICAL APPRAISAL
The skin is the human body's biggest organ, with a surface region of around 2 m2. Generally, the skin was seen as an impermeable boundary. Yet, as of late, it has been progressively perceived that unblemished skin can be utilized as a port for the topical or ceaseless foundational organization of medications. For drugs that have short half-lives, a transdermal course gives a consistent method of o...
