Today's increased computing speeds allow conventional sequential machines to effectively emulate associative computing techniques. We present a parallel programming paradigm called ASC (ASsociative Computing), designed for a wide range of computing engines. Our paradigm has an efficient associative-based, dynamic memory-allocation mechanism that does not(More)
8-Oxoguanine-DNA glycosylase (OGG-1) is a base excision DNA repair enzyme; however, its function in modulating allergic diseases remains undefined. Using OGG-1 knockout (KO) mice, we show that this protein affects allergic airway inflammation after sensitization and challenge by ovalbumin(OVA). OGG-1 KO mice exhibited less inflammatory cell infiltration and(More)
A total of 37 complete genome sequences of bacteria, archaea, and eukaryotes were compared. The percentage of orthologous genes of each species contained within any of the other 36 genomes was established. In addition, the mean identity of the orthologs was calculated. Several conclusions result: (i) a greater absolute number of orthologs of a given species(More)
The existence of different solid-state forms such as polymorphs, solvates, hydrates, and amorphous form in pharmaceutical drug substances and excipients, along with their downstream consequences in drug products and biological systems, is well documented. Out of these solid states, amorphous systems have attracted considerable attention of formulation(More)
The biopharmaceutical properties-especially the solubility and permeability-of a molecule contribute to its overall therapeutic efficacy. The newer tools of drug discovery have caused a shift in the properties of drug-like compounds, resulting in drugs with poor aqueous solubility and permeability, which offer delivery challenges, thus requiring(More)
The aim of the study was to understand the effect of benzyl alcohol on biological activity, aggregation behavior, denaturant and heat-induced unfolding of lysozyme. Compatibility studies of lysozyme carried out with a number of anti-microbial preservatives, indicated benzyl alcohol to be the best suppressor of protein aggregation against heat stress. The(More)
This study deals with the generation and characterization of various solid-state forms of celecoxib, a selective cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) inhibitor. The drug was subjected to polymorphic screen using different solvents to explore the possibility of existence of different solid forms. N,N-Dimethyl acetamide (DMA) and N,N-dimethyl formamide (DMF) yielded(More)
This study deals with characterization and quantification of form I and form II of clopidogrel bisulphate (CLP), a selective and irreversible inhibitor of ADP-induced platelet aggregation. Thermal (DSC, TGA, HSM), crystallographic (XRD) and spectroscopic (FTIR) methods were used for characterization. After characterization of active pharmaceutical(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of the current study is to evaluate the solubility advantage offered by celecoxib (CEL) amorphous systems and to characterize and correlate the physical and thermodynamic properties of CEL and its amorphous molecular dispersions containing poly(vinylpyrrolidone) (PVP). METHODS The measurement of crystalline content, glass transition(More)
