Dendrimers are new class of polymeric materials. It is generally described as a macromolecule, which is characterized by its extensively branched 3D structure that provides a high degree of surface functionality and versatility. The unique properties associated with these dendrimers such as uniform size, high degree of branching, water solubility,(More)
Lipid-based formulations encompass a diverse group of formulations with very different physical appearance, ranging from simple triglyceride vehicles to more sophisticated formulations such as self-emulsifying drug delivery systems (SEDDS). Lipid-based drug delivery systems may contain a broad range of oils, surfactants, and co-solvents. They represent one(More)
Purpose: To develop and characterize an oral extended-release matrix tablet of metformin hydrochloride using a combination of a hydrophobic carrier and a hydrophilic polymer, and two types of formulation techniques. Methods: Various metformin hydrochloride formulations containing a hydrophobic carrier (stearic acid) and a hydrophilic polymer (polyethylene(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the study is to explore the pharmacokinetic behavior of candesartan solid dispersions prepared by different pharmaceutical interventions using P-gp inhibitor in rabbits to validate the effectiveness of naringin as a pharmaceutical excipient in enhancing the oral delivery of lipophilic candesartan cilexetil. METHODS Male albino rabbits(More)
Pharmaceutical materials science being a fundamental branch that continuously provides important insights, theories, and technologies to formulation sciences. The recent advances in this area have brought the possibility to produce pharmaceutical materials by design. In particular, the formation of co-crystals, i.e. crystalline molecular complexes of twoor(More)
The field of ocular drug delivery is one of the interesting and challenging endeavors facing the pharmaceutical scientist. Novel approaches for ophthalmic drug delivery need to be established to increase the ocular bioavailability by overcoming the inherent drawbacks of conventional dosage forms. In situ hydrogels are instilled as drops into the eye and(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the effect of naringenin on the intestinal biochemical composition, function and histology for gastrointestinal toxicity since it has not yet been adequately exploited for safety through standard assays. METHODS Here, we describe naringenin (1 mM, 10 mM and 100 mM, respectively) or sodium deoxycholate (10 mM) effects on isolated brush(More)
The present study was designed to evaluate targeting efficiency of carboplatin anticancer drug. Drug was encapsulated in natural biodegradable polymer sodium alginate. The nanoparticles were prepared by the ion gelification technique and evaluated for encapsulation efficiency, loading capacity, in vitro release pattern and targeting efficiency. Drug(More)
Nitric Oxide (NO) can autoregulate its own formation by feedback inhibition of the inducible Nitric Oxide Synthase (iNOS). Modulation of biosynthesis or activity of NO results in amelioration if pathogenesis of experimental arthritis. However, little is known about feedback mechanism on NO generation in response to carrageenan induced paw oedema and(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to develop a novel tablet formulation of amorphous candesartan cilexetil (CAN) solid dispersion involving effective P-gp inhibition for optimal drug delivery by direct compression (DC) method. METHODS To accomplish DC, formulation blends were evaluated for micromeritic properties. The Carr index, Hausner ratio, flow(More)
