A simple, selective, precise and stability-indicating high-performance thin-layer chromatographic method of analysis of curcumin both as a bulk drug and in formulations was developed and validated. The method employed TLC aluminium plates precoated with silica gel 60 F-254 as the stationary phase. The solvent system consisted of chloroform:methanol(More)
The aim of the present study is to develop and evaluate microemulsion formulations for Terbinafine (TB) with a view to enhance its permeability through the skin and provide release for 24 h. Various o/w microemulsions were prepared by the spontaneous emulsification method. Oleic acid was chosen as the oil phase, Caprylo caproyl macrogol-8- glyceride(More)
The objective of the present study was to develop a nanocarrier based formulation of nadifloxacin and to investigate its in vitro antimicrobial effect against Propionibacterium acnes. Nanocarrier based microemulsion formulations were prepared by aqueous titration method, using oleic acid as oil phase, Tween-80 as surfactant and ethanol as co-surfactant in(More)
The aim of the present study was to evaluate the enhanced anti-inflammatory effects of celecoxib (CXB) from a transdermally applied nanoemulsion. The anti-inflammatory effects of an optimized nanoemulsion formulation were compared with those of conventional CXB gel and nanoemulsion gel on carrageenan-induced paw edema in rats. These tests were compared(More)
BACKGROUND Red blood cells (RBC) possess a nitric oxide synthase (RBC-NOS) whose activation depends on the PI3-kinase/Akt kinase pathway. RBC-NOS-produced NO exhibits important biological functions like maintaining RBC deformability. Until now, the cellular target structure for NO, to exert its influence on RBC deformability, remains unknown. In the present(More)
The purpose of the study was to formulate biodegradable intrapocket dental films, which could be easily placed into the periodontal pocket, and be capable of delivering therapeutic concentrations of amoxycillin and metronidazole for prolonged period of time with a much lower dose, hence obviating untoward side effects. A biodegradable intrapocket device(More)
Buccoadhesive erodible tablets of trimcinolone acetonide were prepared using different bioadhesive polymers along with excipients like mannitol and PEG-6000. In vitro release characteristics were evaluated using a 'flow-thru assembly' which simulated the conditions of the human buccal cavity. The bioadhesive performance and the surface pH of the tablets was(More)
Buccoadhesive erodible disks of cetylpyridinium chloride were prepared using different bioadhesive polymers along with excipients like mannitol. The purpose of designing the erodible disk was to obviate the need for removal of exhausted device. The optimized disk containing 5.0 mg of cetylpyridinium chloride, 2.0 mg of magnesium stearate and 6.0 mg of(More)
Clarithromycin, a new macrolide antibiotic, is at least four times more active in vitro than erythromycin against Legionella pneumophila. In this study the safety and efficacy of orally administered clarithromycin (500 to 1,000 mg bid) in the treatment of Legionella pneumonia were evaluated. Forty-six patients were enrolled in the study, 15 of whom had not(More)
The aim of the present study was to develop a delivery system wherein the retention of ofloxacin could be achieved for increased local action in gastric region against Helicobacter pylori infection. The formulation was optimized on the basis of in vitro buoyancy and in vitro release in citrate phosphate buffer (pH 3). The hydrodynamically balanced capsules(More)
