Ibuprofen was milled in the solid state with kaolin (hydrated aluminium silicate) in different ratio to examine the extent of transformation from crystalline to amorphous state. The physical stability of the resultant drug was also investigated. X-ray powder diffractometry (XRD) and birefringence by Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) studies indicated(More)
A vigorously nitrogen-fixing bacterium was isolated from a West Bengal soil. Cells from young cultures on nitrogen-deficient agar medium appear as rods measuring approx. 3–6x1.0–1.2 μ., with rounded ends and homogeneous cytoplasm. Older cells contain big refractile bodies representing vacuoles and fat deposits and show a wide variation in shape. Short(More)
The interaction pattern of gatifloxacin was temperature-dependent Langmuir isotherm, and the Langmuir coefficients increased as the temperature was raised. The perturbation experiment conducted on this system showed that the nature of interaction was irreversible. The enthalpy change is a positive value, indicating the existence of increased activation(More)
This review focuses on the recent techniques of solubilization for the attainment of effective absorption and improved bioavailability. Solubilization may be affected due to cosolvent water interaction or altered crystal structure by cosolvent addition. Micellar solubilization could be affected by both ionic strength and pH. Addition of cosolvents to the(More)
This study investigates the design of sunflower oil entrapped floating and mucoadhesive beads of amoxicillin trihydrate using sodium alginate and hydroxypropyl methylcellulose as matrix polymers and chitosan as coating polymer to localize the antibiotic at the stomach site against Helicobacter pylori. Beads prepared by ionotropic gellation technique were(More)
This present study is a preliminary exploration of the affinity between a carboxylic model drug ibuprofen and aluminum hydroxide. Ibuprofen was comilled with aluminum hydroxide in different weight ratios in the solid state and was characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), X-ray powder diffractometry (XRD), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy(More)
Nefopam hydrochloride, a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug, is administered in tablet form three times daily or as intramuscular injection at 6-h intervals to treat disorders such as acute or constant pain. It is also used for a prolonged treatment of severe pain, when morphine therapy has to be withdrawn for morphine-related dependence. To achieve a(More)
