Pomegranate juice (PJ) is known to be a potent inhibitor of human cytochrome enzymes. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of acute and chronic PJ on the pharmacokinetics of oral nitrendipine (10 mg/kg) in rabbits. Male New Zealand rabbits were pretreated with PJ for 1 week and on the last day, a single dose of nitrendipine was given(More)
Pomegranate juice (PJ) is known to be a potent inhibitor of human cytochromes (CYP), particularly CYP2C9 and CYP3A4. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of oral PJ on the pharmacokinetics of nitrendipine (10 mg/kg) in rats. The effect of PJ was also investigated on the absorption kinetics of nitrendipine in rats using a single-pass(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate the skeletal effects of an extract made from the leaves and pods of Dalbergia sissoo (butanol-soluble standardized fraction [BSSF]) on ovariectomized rats, a model for postmenopausal osteopenia. METHODS Adult Sprague-Dawley rats were ovariectomized and administered BSSF (50 and 100 mg/kg per day) or(More)
A simple and sensitive reverse phase ultra fast liquid chromatographic (UFLC) method for simultaneous determination of nitrendipine and carvone in skin diffusate samples and microemulsions was developed and validated. The separation was achieved using a gradient mobile phase, on an Onyx column. The eluents were monitored by photodiode array detection. The(More)
Silibinin, a major constituent of silymarin, is widely used for its hepatoprotective effects. This study investigated the effect of silibinin on the pharmacokinetics of oral nitrendipine in rabbits. In first set of experiment, male New Zealand rabbits were pretreated with silibinin (50 mg/kg, PO) for 7 days and on last day nitrendipine (10 mg/kg, PO) was(More)
Cyclodextrins are cyclic (α -1, 4)-linked oligosaccharides of α -D-glucopyranose containing a relatively hydrophobic central cavity and hydrophilic outer surface. Cyclodextrins, which can serve as solubilising and stabilizing agent of drug, are very significant in improving the bioavailability of drug, increasing the solubility, decreasing the stimulation,(More)
