In bone disorders infections are common. The concentration of majority of antibiotics is very low in the bone tissue. A high local dose can be obtained from the ciprofloxacin-loaded hydroxyapatite nanoparticles. The present study is aimed at developing the use of hydroxyapatite and zinc-doped hydroxyapatite nanoparticles as a carrier for ciprofloxacin drug… (More)
Nanoparticles are widely used for targeted drug delivery applications. Surface modification with appropriate polymer and ligands is carried out to target the drug to the affected area. Toxicity analysis is carried out to evaluate the safety of the surface modified nanoparticles. In this study, paclitaxel attached, folic acid functionalized, polyethylene… (More)

The role of health screening in Community Pharmacies is not to take over the role of the GP. Screening in Community Pharmacies on the whole is designed to provide access to screening services to the members of the public, who may not be able to access this intervention through their GP. In Australia as noted by pharmacists who were involved in health… (More)
Pre-hardened steel (P20) is a widely used material in the production of moulds/dies due to less wear resistance and used for large components. In this study, minimization of surface roughness has been investigated by integrating design of experiment method, Response surface methodology (RSM) and genetic algorithm. To achieve the minimum surface roughness… (More)
Aqueous and methanolic extracts of fruit bodies of Trametes hirsuta were tested against five pathogenic fungi like Penicillium sps., Aspergillus fumigatous, Aspergillus niger, Aspergillus flavus and Mucour indicus and five bacterial stains such as Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Salmonella typhi, Staphylococcus aureus, and Streptococcus mutans.… (More)
