Intranasal drug administration is receiving increased attention as a delivery method for bypassing the blood-brain barrier and rapidly targeting therapeutics to the CNS. However, rapid mucociliary clearance in the nasal cavity is a major hurdle. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of mucoadhesive polymers in enhancing the delivery of(More)
A sensitive and simple HPLC method was developed for the simultaneous quantification of berberine and lysergol in rat plasma. The chromatographic separation was achieved on a C(18) column using isocratic elution with methanol-acetonitrile-0.1% ortho-phosphoric acid (25:20:55, v/v/v), pH adjusted to 6.5 with triethylamine and detected at a UV wavelength of(More)
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an autoimmune inflammatory disease of the central nervous system (CNS) where the communication ability of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord with each other gets impaired. Some current findings suggest the role of glutamate excitotoxicity in the development and progression of MS. An excess release of glutamate leads to the(More)
Picrosides I and II are the active chemical constituents, present in the roots and rhizomes of Picrorhiza kurroa Royle (family: Scrophulariaceae). The plant is ethnomedically claimed for the treatment of liver and upper respiratory tract infection, fever, dyspepsia and scorpion sting. This study attempts to determine the in vivo pharmacokinetic profile of(More)
OBJECTIVES The objective of this study was to synthesize and identify potential leads for the management of Alzheimer's disease (AD). METHODS A series of bis-imidazopyridines were synthesized and assessed preclinically for anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activity in aluminium chloride-induced rat model for AD. The two targets, anti-inflammatory and(More)
Dalbavancin, a recently approved glycopeptide antibiotic, whose disposition is not affected by renal function as compared to vancomycin is used to treat serious infections caused by Staphylococci and Streptococci including multiple drug-resistant strains. Although reviews of the pharmacodynamic and clinical efficacy of dalbavancin have been published, a(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the change in the expression and the activity of intestinal P-glycoprotein (efflux transporter) with progression of diabetes in rats. Diabetes was induced in Wistar rats using a combination of low dose streptozotocin along with high fat diet. The expression of intestinal P-glycoprotein significantly increased (P≤0.05)(More)
ETHNOPHARMACOLOGICAL RELAVANCE The decoction of Carica papaya Linn. leaves is used in folklore medicine in certain parts of Malaysia and Indonesia for the treatment of different types of thrombocytopenia associated with diseases and drugs. There are several scientific studies carried out on humans and animal models to confirm the efficacy of decoction of(More)
The occurrence of efflux mechanisms via Permeability-glycoprotein (P-gp) recognized as an important physiological process impedes drug entry or transport across membranes into tissues. In some instances, either low oral bioavailability or lack of brain penetration has been attributed to P-gp mediated efflux activity. Therefore, the objective of development(More)
