Cadmium concentration in Nereis virens exposed to sediment spiked with cadmium increased linearly with time, no equilibrium concentration being indicated by 24 days of exposure. The concentration with N. virens also increased with concentration of Cd in the sediment, and smaller worms accumulated higher amounts per unit weight than larger worms. With(More)
In this study, carboxymethyl derivative of locust bean gum was prepared, characterized, and its gelling ability with different concentrations (1-5% w/v) of aluminum chloride (AlCl(3)) was utilized for the development of glipizide-loaded beads in a completely aqueous environment. The beads were spherical when observed under a scanning electron microscope.(More)
The purpose of the study was to develop a multiunit sustained release dosage form of diltiazem hydrochloride using a natural polymer, sodium carboxymethyl xanthan gum and polyethyleneimine (PEI) from a completely aqueous environment. PEI treated diltiazem resin complex loaded beads were characterized by morphology, drug entrapment efficiency, in vitro and(More)
Fluconazole-loaded ethyl cellulose microspheres were prepared by alginate facilitated (water-in-oil)-in-water emulsion technology and the effects of various processing variables on the properties of microspheres were investigated. Scanning electron microscopy revealed spherical nature and smooth surface morphology of the microspheres except those prepared(More)
Xanthan gum (XG) was derivatized to sodium carboxymethyl xanthan gum (SCMXG) and then cross-linked with aluminium ions (Al(+3)) to prepare BSA-loaded microparticles (MPs) from a completely aqueous environment. The derivatized gum was characterized by various physical methods. Discrete and spherical BSA-loaded MPs were obtained from SCMXG solution, the pH of(More)
The objective of this study was to develop a multiunit sustained release dosage form of diltiazem using a natural polymer from a completely aqueous environment. Diltiazem was complexed with resin and the resinate-loaded carboxymethyl xanthan (RCMX) beads were prepared by interacting sodium carboxymethyl xanthan (SCMX), a derivatized xanthan gum, with Al+3(More)
In this study, nanovesicles were developed for brimonidine tartrate by film hydration technique and dispersed in viscous carbopol solution for ocular delivery. Scanning electron microscopy revealed spherical shape of the vesicles. As high as 32.27% drug entrapment efficiency was achieved depending upon the surfactant/cholesterol molar ratio (7:4 to 7:8).(More)
