A rapid and sensitive high-performance thin-layer chromatographic (HPTLC) method was developed and validated for the quantitative estimation of boswellic acids in formulation containing Boswellia serrata extract (BSE) and 11-keto beta-boswellic acid in human plasma. Simple extraction method was used for isolation of boswellic acid from formulation sample(More)
Ten patients with endoscopically proven active duodenal ulcers completed a double-blind placebo-controlled trial of doxepin hydrochloride. All ten had previously failed to respond to conventional cimetidine therapy. Doxepin was given at bedtime in a single 50-mg dose for the first week and, if needed, in a single 75-mg or 100-mg dose for the remainder of(More)
Twenty-one patients with endoscopically proven active duodenal ulcers were studied in a double-blind randomized trial comparing doxepin hydrochloride (50 mg during the first week, and 100 mg thereafter, at bedtime) and cimetidine (1,200 mg/day in four divided doses). After two weeks, the average size of the ulcers had decreased 94% in the doxepin group (n =(More)
