The purpose of the current study was to investigate the feasibility of proniosomes as transdermal drug delivery system for losartan potassium. Different preparations of proniosomes were fabricated using different nonionic surfactants, such as Span 20, Span 40, Span 60, Span 80, Tween 20, Tween 40, and Tween 80. Different formulae were prepared and coded as(More)
AIMS Transdermal therapeutic systems were developed using the polymers, Eudragit E 100 and polyvinyl pyrrolidone VA 64 in a film casting assembly. The medicated films were evaluated for physical properties, in vitro drug release studies, in vitro skin permeation studies, and pharmacodynamic studies. RESULTS The physical parameters were found to be very(More)
Monolithic transdermal therapeutic systems (TTS) were developed for sustained antihypertensive effect of losartan potassium using the polymers Eudragit E 100 and polyvinyl pyrrolidone VA 64. The developed formulations (polymeric films) were evaluated for physical characteristics, ex vivo (histopathology) and in vivo (pharmacokinetic studies).(More)
Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a chronic metabolic disorder characterized by hyperglycemia caused by defective insulin secretion, resistance to insulin action, or a combination of both. DM has reached epidemic proportions in the US and more recently worldwide. The morbidity and mortality associated with diabetes is anticipated to account for a substantial(More)
OBJECTIVE The presence of extensive coronary artery calcifications (CAC) influences treatment decisions, particularly for revascularization. However, important CAC might be missed with invasive coronary angiography (ICA). Our aim was to determine the accuracy of ICA in the identification of CAC using computed tomography (CT) as reference standard. (More)
