Micronucleus induction and phagocytosis in V79 and CHO cells treated with diesel emission particles (DEP) were studied. After separation of the sample into supernatant and sediment fractions, the genotoxic activity of DEP was shown to reside in the supernatant fraction for the DMSO-extracted sample, and in the sedimented fraction for the dipalmitoyl(More)
The objective of present investigation was to evaluate the entrapment efficiency of the anti-HIV drug, zidovudine, using two Eudragit polymers of different permeability characteristics and to study the effect of this entrapment on the drug release properties. In order to increase the entrapment efficiency optimum concentration of polymer solutions were(More)
The present study was aimed at designing a microflora triggered colon targeted drug delivery system (MCDDS) based on swellable polysaccharide, Sterculia gum in combination with biodegradable polymers with a view to specifically deliver azathioprine in the colonic region for the treatment of IBD with reduced systemic toxicity. The microflora degradation(More)
The aim of this study was to formulate and evaluate microencapsulated controlled release preparations of a highly water/soluble drug, salbutamol sulphate by (water in oil) in oil emulsion technique using ethyl cellulose as the retardant material. Various processing and formulation parameters such as drug/polymer ratio, stirring speed, volume of processing(More)
The present study was aimed at designing a microflora triggered colon-targeted drug delivery system (MCDDS) based on swellable polysaccharide, Sterculia gum in combination with biodegradable polymers with a view to target azathioprine (AZA) in the colon for the treatment of IBD with reduced systemic toxicity. The microflora degradation study of gum was(More)
The purpose of this study is to explore the possible applicability of Sterculia urens gum as a novel carrier for colonic delivery system of a sparingly soluble drug, azathioprine. The study involves designing a microflora triggered colon-targeted drug delivery system (MCDDS) which consists of a central polysaccharide core and is coated to different film(More)
UNLABELLED The purpose of this research is to evaluate Sterculia urens gum as a carrier for a colon-targeted drug delivery system. Microflora degradation studies of Sterculia gum was conducted in phosphate-buffered saline pH 7.4 containing rat caecal medium under an anaerobic environment. Solubility, swelling index, viscosity, and pH of the polymer solution(More)
