This investigation describes the preparation and in vitro evaluation of gastroretentive floating tablet of theophylline. Two hydrophilic cellulose derivatives, Methocel K100M and Methocel K15MCR were evaluated for their gel forming and release controlling properties. Sodium bicarbonate and citric acid were incorporated as gas generating agents. The effects(More)
The aim of the study was to compare the urinary excretion data and bioavailability of two 500 mg amoxicillin capsules formulations in healthy Bangladeshi subjects under fasting condition and evaluate the ethnic variations in drug disposition. Twenty-four subjects were enrolled into this single-dose, randomized, open-label, twoway cross over study. A washout(More)
BACKGROUND In Bangladesh, a number of generic oral formulations of esomeprazole are marketed. Study of the relative bioavailability of these generic formulations has yet to be conducted in a Bangladeshi population.

Drug abuser patients (n = 104), age ranging from 19 to 42 years, were randomly recruited to investigate the serum levels of trace elements (Cu, Zn, Fe, and Mg), malondialdehyde (MDA), and immunoglobulin (IgG, IgA, and IgM) before and after clinical intervention. Control group also included 104 healthy individuals. Blood samples were analyzed for determining(More)
Objectives: Free radicals have been implicated in the pathophysiology of some psychiatric disorders. To examine the role of free radicals in the etiopathogenesis of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), we aimed to assess whether the antioxidant vitamins (E, C and A) activity and malondialdehyde (MDA) levels were associated with OCD. Methods: 48 OCD patients(More)
BACKGROUND Amoxicillin, a semisynthetic penicillin antibiotic, is widely prescribed in Bangladesh due to its extended spectrum and its rapid and extensive oral absorption with good tolerability. Although a number of generic oral formulations of amoxicillin are available in Bangladesh, a study of the bioequivalence and pharmacokinetic properties of these(More)
