Now a day's intranasal (i.n) drug delivery is emerging as a reliable method to bypass the blood-brain barrier (BBB) and deliver a wide range of therapeutic agents including both small and large molecules, growth factors, viral vectors and even stem cells to the brain and has shown therapeutic effects in both animals and humans. This route involves the(More)
Curcumin, a natural polyphenolic pigment present in the spice turmeric (Curcuma longa), is known to possess a pleiotropic activity such as antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-amyloid-β activities. However, these benefits of curcumin are limited by its poor aqueous solubility and oral bioavailability. In the present study, a polymer-based nanoparticle(More)
Nanostructured lipid carrier (NLC) is second generation smarter drug carrier system having solid matrix at room temperature. This carrier system is made up of physiological, biodegradable and biocompatible lipid materials and surfactants and is accepted by regulatory authorities for application in different drug delivery systems. The availability of many(More)
Periodontitis is the most common localized dental inflammatory disease related with several pathological conditions like inflammation of gums (gingivitis), degeneration of periodontal ligament, dental cementum and alveolar bone loss. In this perspective, the various preventive and treatment modalities, including oral hygiene, gingival irrigations,(More)
CONTEXT Parkinson disease (PD) is a common, progressive neurodegenerative disorder, characterized by marked depletion of striatal dopamine and degeneration of dopaminergic neurons in the substantia nigra. OBJECTIVE The purpose of the present study was to investigate the possibility of targeting an anti-Parkinson's drug ropinirole (RH) to the brain using(More)
Drug delivery to the brain still remains highly challenging for the treatment of Alzheimer's disease (AD). The development of new practical treatment modalities for the treatment of AD is currently a highly active area of research. Our lack of success in the development of effective therapies for AD is attributed to, but not limited to a number of factors(More)
The purpose of the present investigation was to prepare venlafaxine (VLF) loaded chitosan nanoparticles (NPs) to enhance the uptake of VLF to brain via intranasal (i.n.) delivery. VLF loaded chitosan NPs were prepared and characterized for particle size, size distribution, zeta potential, encapsulation efficiency and in vitro drug release. In order to(More)
INTRODUCTION Natural products have seen a wide range of acceptability for the prevention and treatment of diseases throughout history. Resveratrol, a member of the stilbene family, has been found to potentially exhibit anticancer, antiangiogenic, immunomodulatory and cardioprotective activities as well as being an antioxidant. This is in addition to its(More)
INTRODUCTION Natural compounds such as bioflavonoids have found application in health care system due to their wide biological activities, high safety margins and lower cost. Rutin , a polyphenolic bioflavonoid has shown wide range of pharmacological applications due to its significant antioxidant properties. Conventionally, it is used as antimicrobial,(More)
The primary aim of this study was to investigate the potential use of chitosan nanoparticles as a delivery system to enhance the brain targeting efficiency of bromocriptine (BRC) following intranasal (i.n.) administration. The BRC loaded chitosan nanoparticles (CS NPs) were prepared by ionic gelation of CS with tripolyphosphate anions. These NPs had a mean(More)
