Docetaxel (DTX), a cytotoxic taxane, is a poor water-soluble drug and exhibits less oral bioavailability. Current research investigates the effective transport, for DTX-loaded chitosan (CS)-coated-poly-lactide-co-glycolide (PLGA)-nanoparticles (NPs) (DTX-CS-PLGA-NPs) and DTX-PLGA-NPs as well as a novel third-generation P-gp inhibitor i.e. GF120918(More)
There is a general hesitation in participation among Pakistani women when it comes to giving their responses in surveys related to breast cancer which may be due to the associated stigma and conservatism in society. We felt that no research instrument was able to extract information from the respondents to the extent it was needed for the successful(More)
BACKGROUND Quercetin (QUR), as an antioxidant flavonoid, exhibits potential role in the amelioration of cerebral ischaemia; however, poor solubility as well as oral absorption results low serum and tissue levels for this drug. PURPOSE OF THE STUDY To enhance bioavailability, this study aims to prepare QUR nanoemulsions and administer via non-invasive(More)
Ziziphus oxyphylla and Cedrela Serrata plants have a folkloric use in Pakistan for treatments of different ailments, i.e., Jaundice, Hepatitis, Diabetes, and antimicrobial. Until now, none of the research studies have reported any phytochemical work on leaves of these two plants. This study aimed to isolate and perform phytochemical analysis in order to(More)
Background Quercetin (Qur) and its major in vivo bioactive metabolites i. e., 3'-O-methyl quercetin, 4'-O-methyl quercetin and quercetin 7-O-β-D-glucuronide, may be used to treat cerebral ischemia however the poor aqueous solubility and less intestinal absorption of Qur results low bioavailability. Purpose To improve Qur bioavailability through preparation(More)
ETHNOPHARMACOLOGICAL RELEVANCE Ziziphus oxyphylla (ZO) is distributed mainly in tropic and warm temperate regions in the world. Pakistan owns six (06) indigenous species of genus Ziziphus out of which ZO is widely used for traditional treatment of different ailments such as diabetes, jaundice and liver diseases. AIM OF THE STUDY The present review aims to(More)
OBJECTIVE Rutin, a potent antioxidant, has been reported to reduce the risk of ischemic disease. Our study aims to prepare rutin-encapsulated-chitosan nanoparticles (RUT-CS-NPs) via ionic gelation method and determine its results, based on different parameters i.e. surface morphology characterization, in-vitro or ex-vivo release, dynamic light scattering(More)
Rutin (RT), an antioxidant drug, has been utilized to treat cerebral ischemia hence a sensitive quantification method for estimation of RT in brain homogenate is necessary to develop. This study aims to prepare RT loaded Chitosan Nanoparticles (RT-CS-NPs) develop and validate ultra-high performance liquid chromatography-electrospray ionization-synapt mass(More)
