The major hindrance for the absorption of a drug taken orally is extensive first pass metabolism or stability problems within the GI environment like instability in gastric pH and complexation with mucosal membrane. These obstacles can be overcome by altering the route of administration as parenteral, transdermal or trasmucosal. Among these trasmucosal has(More)
Cedrus deodara heart wood has been traditionally used for the treatment of anxiety. The objective of the study was to isolate the compound from the ethanolic extract and to investigate the anxiolytic activity. The isolated compound was characterized by FTIR, 1H NMR, 13C NMR, and mass spectral technique. The spectral data revealed the structure(More)
Candesartan cilexetil (CC) is a newer class of angiotensin II receptor antagonist used for the treatment of hypertension. The solubility of the CC is very poor and its oral bioavailability is only 15%. The controlledrelease polar lipid microparticles of CC (formulations F1, F2, F3 and F4) were prepared using variable erodible lipophilic excipients like(More)
The heartwood of Cedrus deodara is traditionally used for the treatment of neurological disorders in India. In this study, the compound 3,4-bis(3,4-dimethoxyphenyl)furan-2,5-dione (BDFD) isolated from the ethanolic extract of C. deodara was evaluated for its anticonvulsant activity. The experimental studies were carried out in albino mice (18–22 g) and rats(More)
Histone deacetylases (HDACs) are enzymes, which catalyze the removal of acetyl moiety from acetyl-lysine within the histone proteins and promote gene repression and silencing resulting in several types of cancer. HDACs are important therapeutic targets for the treatment of cancer and related diseases. Hydroxamic acid inhibitors show promising results in(More)
This paper describes the pharmacological evaluation pertaining to in vivo antiepileptic and locomotor activities, and subsequent QSAR studies on 4,5-diphenyl-1H-imidazole analogues. These two activities on albino mice were determined based on electroshock method and by using actophotometer respectively. Compounds with 4-fluorophenyl, 4-dimethylaminophenyl,(More)
BACKGROUND Drugs that inhibit cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) while sparing cyclooxygenase-1 (COX-1) represent a new attractive therapeutic development and offer new perspective for further use of COX-2 inhibitors. Intention of this work is to develop safer, selective COX-2 inhibitors that do not produce harmful effects. RESULTS A series of 55 tyrosine(More)
The objective of this study was to isolate a new compound from methanol extracts of Indigofera aspalathoides Vahl ex DC. aerial parts and to determine the immunomodulatory activity of the isolated compound. The methanolic extract yielded compounds 1 (0.65 mg), 2 (0.52 mg), and 3 (1.80 g) on chromatography, which was characterized using spectral techniques,(More)
Cedrus deodara (Pinaceae) has been used traditionally in Ayurveda for the treatment of central nervous system disorders. 3,4-bis(3,4-dimethoxyphenyl)furan-2,5-dione (BDFD) was isolated from heart wood of Cedrus deodara and was shown to have antiepileptic and anxiolytic activity. Thus, the present study was aimed to explore its anti-depressant effect and to(More)
The purpose of this work was to study the effect of various permeation enhancers on the permeation of salbutamol sulphate (SS) buccal patches through buccal mucosa in order to improve the bioavailability by avoiding the first pass metabolism in the liver and possibly in the gut wall and also achieve a better therapeutic effect. The influence of various(More)
