Self-nanoemulsifying granules (SNGs) were formulated with the objective of enhancing the bioavailability of the ezetimibe. Various modified oils, surfactant and cosurfactant mixtures were used and composition of self-nanoemulsifying system (SNS) was optimized. SNS diluted and resultant emulsion was characterized for mean globule size and stability. The(More)
Over the recent past, many of the research groups are focusing their research on this technology. Amongst the plethora of avenues explored for rapid drug releasing products, Oral Strip Technology (OST) is gaining much attention. The advantages of OST are the administration to pediatric and geriatric patient population where the difficulty of swallowing(More)
In the present study, Simvastatin was incorporated in emulsion of soybean oil and propylene glycol monocaprylate as oily phase and Tween 80 and Cremophor EL as surfactants and also their mixtures. Dry adsorbed emulsions were prepared by using colloidal silicon dioxide in varying proportions to adsorb the liquid emulsion. Liquid emulsions were characterized(More)
A simple, specific and sensitive reverse phase high performance liquid chromatographic method was developed and validated for simultaneous determination of ezetimibe and simvastatin from pharmaceutical dosage forms. The method uses C18 ODS Hypersil column and isocratic elution. The mobile phase composed of acetonitrile:phosphate buffer (pH 4.5, 0.01M) in(More)
There has been a resurgence of interest in nanoemulsions for various pharmaceutical applications since low-energy emulsification methods, such as spontaneous or self-nanoemulsification, have been described. Self-nanoemulsifying drug delivery systems (SNEDDS) are anhydrous homogenous liquid mixtures consisting of oil, surfactant, drug and coemulsifier or(More)
The concept of fluidization has been adapted to different unit processes of pharmaceutical product development. Till date a lot of improvements have been made in the engineering design to achieve superior process performance. This review is focused on the fundamental principles of aerodynamics and hydrodynamics associated with the fluidization technologies.(More)
The study describes development of solid microemulsions (SME) for improved delivery of simvastatin (SMV). Pseudo-ternary phase diagrams were constructed and MEs were optimized for oil and drug content. SMEs were prepared using colloidal silicon dioxide to adsorb the liquid ME. MEs were characterized for mean globule size in aqueous medium and the SMEs were(More)
Self-nanoemulsifying granules were formulated with the objective of improving the bioavailability of the ezetimibe and simvastatin when administered together. Composition of self-nanoemulsifying system (SNS) was optimized using various modified oils, surfactant, and cosurfactant mixtures. SNSs were mixed with water and resultant emulsions were characterized(More)
5'-nucleotidase activity in the spinning gland cells of an Indian moth, Diacrisia obliqua has been studied for the first time during prefunctional, functional and postfunctional phases of development. The enzyme seems to play an active role in the metabolism of silk secretion. Differential utilization of 5'-nucleotidase substrate in the growing and(More)
