Praziquantel (PZQ) is effective against all known species of Schistosomes that infect humans. The failure of mass treatment of schistosomiasis has been attributed to the fact that therapy is not sufficiently long-lasting. This effect may be due to the low bioavailability of PZQ that has a low hydrosolubility and fast metabolism. Liposomes have been used to(More)
Plinia cauliflora (Mart.) Kausel, widespread in South America, has edible fruits, and its bark is commonly used against diarrhea and other disorders, on account of its astringency. Because diarrhea is still one of the most important causes of illness and death among children in developing countries, where the population turns to traditional medicine for its(More)
An ion-exchange chromatography (IEC) followed by post-column derivatization method was validated for the determination of glutamine in food additive products. The chromatographic method was carried out on a sodium cation-exchange column and using detection at 570 nm. The mobile phase consisted of sodium eluant, pH 3.15, with 5% sulfolane, sodium eluant, pH(More)
Glimepiride, an oral antidiabetic drug, is practically insoluble in water and exists in two polymorphic forms, I and II, of which form II has higher solubility in water. Because the dissolution rate of drugs can depend on the crystal form, there is a need to develop discriminating dissolution methods that are sensitive to changes in polymorphic forms. In(More)
An accurate, sensitive, precise and rapid gradient reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatographic method was successfully developed and validated for the determination of doxycycline hyclate in bulk drug and tablets. The best separation was achieved on a 250 × 4.6 mm, 5.0 µm particle size CN Luna column with water + 0.1% TFA-acetonitrile + 0.1% TFA,(More)
Doxycycline hyclate (DOX) is a highly photosensitive drug, a feature that limits the stability of the corresponding dosage forms. The main objectives of this work were the preparation and characterization of an inclusion complex of DOX with β-cyclodextrin (βCD) and to investigate if this approach could improve the photostability of the drug.

Development of topical dosage forms requires physical, physicochemical and chemical assays that provide, as soon as possible, the formulation with the best stability profiles. This study evaluated the stability of O/W fluid emulsions, by total flavonoids determination, expressed in rutin, containing the standardized extract of Trichilia catigua Adr. Juss(More)
A simple, sensitive and specific agar diffusion bioassay for the antibacterial gatifloxacin was developed using a strain of Bacillus subtilis ATCC 9372 as the test organism. Gatifloxacin could be measured in tablets and raw material at concentration ranging 4-16 microgml(-1). The calibration graph for gatifloxacin was linear from 4.0 to 16.0 microgml(-1). A(More)
A simple, sensitive, and specific biodiffusion assay for the antibacterial ceftazidime was developed using a strain of Staphylococcus epidermidis (ATCC 12228) as the test organism. Ceftazidime was measured in powder for injection at concentrations ranging from 100 to 400 microg/mL. The calibration graph for ceftazidime was linear (r2 = 1), and the method(More)
This paper describes the multivariate development of a stability-indicating HPLC method for the quantification of glimepiride in pharmaceutical tablets. Full factorial design, Doehlert design, and response-surface methodology were used in conjunction with the desirability function approach. This procedure allowed the adequate separation of glimepiride from(More)
