PURPOSE The purpose of the present investigation was to improve the flow and mechanical properties of racecadotril by a crystallo-co-agglomeration (CCA) technique. Direct tableting is a requirement of pharmaceutical industries. Poor mechanical properties of crystalline drug particles require wet granulation which is uneconomical, laborious, and tedious. (More)
Irbesartan (IRB) is an angiotensin II receptor blocker antihypertensive agent. The aim of the present investigation was to develop a self-nanoemulsifying drug delivery system (SNEDDS) to enhance the oral bioavailability of poorly water-soluble IRB. The solubility of IRB in various oils was determined to identify the oil phase of SNEDDS. Various surfactants(More)
BACKGROUND Extreme heat is a leading weather-related cause of mortality in the United States, but little guidance is available regarding how temperature variable selection impacts heat-mortality relationships. OBJECTIVES We examined how the strength of the relationship between daily heat-related mortality and temperature varies as a function of(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM Telmisartan (TEL) is an angiotensin II receptor blocker (ARB) antihypertensive agent. The aim of the present investigation was to develop a self-nanoemulsifying drug delivery system (SNEDDS) to enhance the oral bioavailability of poorly water soluble TEL. MATERIALS AND METHODS The solubility of TEL in various oils was determined to(More)
A simple, sensitive, specific, spectrophotometric method was developed for the detection of Olmesartan medoxomil (OLM) in bulk and pharmaceutical formulations. The optimum conditions for the analysis of the drug were established. OLM was subjected to stress degradation under different conditions recommended by the International Conference on Harmonization(More)
INTRODUCTION Antiretroviral therapy is recommended during pregnancy for prevention of mother-to-child transmission (MTCT) of HIV. Physiological changes during pregnancy are known to affect the pharmacokinetics (PK) of protease inhibitors (PIs), leading to lower exposures in pregnant women. Here we examine the PK of DRV/r 800/100 mg once daily (OD) over the(More)
