Reading of text and understanding images by touch is an important alternative and additional source of information when sight is absent or lost. Tactile graphics and models such as edge maps, binary output, etc., are the solution for simple access to images for blind persons. This paper introduces an approach to model the human tactile system based on the(More)
The present study was undertaken to evaluate the mucilage isolated from Spinacia oleracea L. leaves, commonly named spinach (family: Amaranthaceae) as an innovative suspending agent. Zinc oxide suspensions (20% w/v) were prepared using the mucilage of S. oleracea L. leaves as a suspending agent, and it was evaluated for its stability by using parameters(More)
The present study deals with the development of hydroxyapatite (HAp)-ciprofloxacin bone-implants using the »Quality by design« approach. The effect of various synthesis parameters like drug amount added in the process, stirring speed and addition rate of orthophosphoric acid in the synthesis on drug concentration in the HAp-ciprofloxacin system synthesized(More)
Insulin-loaded microemulsions for transdermal delivery were developed using isopropyl myristate or oleic acid as the oil phase, Tween 80 as the surfactant, and isopropyl alcohol as the cosurfactant. The pseudoternary phase diagrams were constructed to determine the composition of microemulsions. The insulin permeation flux of microemulsions containing oleic(More)
In recent years, there has been a rising interest in extracting entities and relations from biomedical literatures. A vast number of systems and approaches have been proposed to extract biological relations but none of them achieves satisfactory results due to the failure of handling the grammatical complexities and subtle features of biomedical texts. In(More)
The current study deals with the development and optimization of ispaghula (Plantago ovata F.) husk mucilage- (IHM-) alginate mucoadhesive beads containing glibenclamide by ionotropic gelation technique. The effects of sodium alginate (SA) to IHM and cross-linker (CaCl2) concentration on the drug encapsulation efficiency (DEE, %), as well as cumulative drug(More)
The aim of this investigation was to develop and optimize bisoprolol fumarate matrix tablets for sustained release application by response surface methodology based on 2(3) factorial design. The effects of the amounts of calcium alginate, HPMC K4M, and Carbopol 943 in bisoprolol fumarate matrix tablets on the properties of bisoprolol fumarate sustained(More)
The objective of the present study was to formulate hydrodynamically balanced systems (HBSs) of theophylline as single unit capsules. They were formulated by physical blending of theophylline with hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose, polyethylene oxide, polyvinyl pyrrolidone, ethyl cellulose, liquid paraffin, and lactose in different ratios. These theophylline(More)
Six generic ciprofloxacin HCl 250 mg tablets from different manufacturer have been evaluated to assess their bioequivalence using in vitro tests. Other general quality assessments of these tablets like assay, weight variation, hardness, friability, disintegration time were also determined and all these generic tablets passed compendial specifications. There(More)

The second most expensive part of the 2010 Decennial Census was Address Canvassing (AdCan), a field operation to prepare the Master Address File (MAF) for census day. The MAF is a database of households in the United States maintained by the US Census Bureau and is used as a basis for the census and household surveys that it conducts. Motivated by the(More)
