OBJECTIVE The aim of the study is to explore the pharmacokinetic behavior of candesartan solid dispersions prepared by different pharmaceutical interventions using P-gp inhibitor in rabbits to validate the effectiveness of naringin as a pharmaceutical excipient in enhancing the oral delivery of lipophilic candesartan cilexetil. METHODS Male albino rabbits(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to corroborate the effects of naringin, a P-glycoprotein inhibitor, on the intestinal absorption and pharmacokinetics of candesartan (CDS) from candesartan cilexetil (CAN) solid dispersions using in-situ rat models. MATERIALS AND METHODS Intestinal transport and absorption studies were examined by in-situ single pass(More)
BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVE Drugs like famotidine, omeprazole and sucralfate which have been reported to promote the healing of gastric ulcers, may have the same effect on cutaneous wounds. Due to paucity of information in this regard, the present study was planned to investigate the effect of these drugs on resutured incision, excision and dead space wounds in(More)
BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVE It is mandatory for all new drugs to be tested for their potential genotoxicity in addition to general toxicity testing. Some old drugs have not been tested adequately for their genotoxic effects as these were in use before the regulations were enforced. The present study therefore aims to explore the genotoxic potential of some(More)
INTRODUCTION Glycine max L. with Drakshasava, widely used by traditional healers as a formulation for the treatment of peptic ulcer in rural northern Karnataka in India, appears to be effective as assessed by patients and in our previously published research work of traditionally used formulation. AIM The present study was undertaken to evaluate the(More)
OBJECTIVE Angelica glauca Edgew (Apiaceae) is used in traditional medicine for treatment of several diseases including bronchial asthma. The present investigation was aimed to evaluate broncho-relaxant activity of A. glauca essential oil in histamine and ovalbumin (OVA)-induced broncho constriction in experimental animals. MATERIALS AND METHODS Airway was(More)
Verapamil in minimum therapeutic equivalent dose, failed to show anti-inflammatory activity as did sub-anti-inflammatory dose of aspirin (54 mg/kg) however, when combined with sub-antiinflammatory dose of aspirin, significant (P < 0.001) inhibition of carrageenan and cotton pellet induced inflammation was observed. The anti-inflammatory activity of this(More)
BACKGROUND The pastes prepared from roots of Plumbago zeylanica Linn. and barks of Holoptelea integrifolia Roxb. are widely used by traditional healers for the treatment of arthritis in rural northern Karnataka. OBJECTIVE The present study was undertaken to scientifically evaluate the safety and efficacy of traditionally used formulations in experimental(More)
PURPOSE In-situ evaluation to corroborate morin effects on the intestinal absorption and pharmacokinetic behavior of freeze-dried OLM-loaded solid dispersions with Caco-2 and in-vivo studies Methods: Intestinal transport and absorption studies were examined by Caco-2 permeability, in-situ single pass perfusion and closed-loop models along with in-vivo(More)
