The objective of present study was to develop nanostructured lipid carriers (NLC) for topical delivery of antioxidant drug and evaluation of its sun protection efficacy. In the present study attempts have been made to formulate Idebenone loaded nanostructured lipid carriers (INLC) by using solvent precipitation method. Preformulation study evidenced for(More)
In the current study, human keratinocyte cell line was used as in vitro cell culture model to elucidate the effects of the fatty acid chain length of acylglutamate (amino acid-based surfactant) namely, sodium cocoyl glutamate, sodium lauroyl glutamate, and sodium myristoyl glutamate on their cytotoxicity and the ultraviolet B induced phototoxicity. The(More)
is a non-selective beta-blocker indicated in the treatment of mild to moderate congestive heart failure. It is a basic, lipophilic compound. Being categorized as Class II compound as per the BCS classification system, it possesses very poor oral bio-availability and shows significant first pass metabolism (1). Thus, a strategy to improve bioavailability(More)
The purpose of the present work was to prepare buccal adhesive tablets of miconazole nitrate. The simplex centroid experimental design was used to arrive at optimum ratio of carbopol 934P, hydroxypropylmethylcellulose K4M and polyvinylpyrollidone, which will provide desired drug release and mucoadhesion. Swelling index, mucoadhesive strength and in vitro(More)
The preparation of highly stable water dispersions of silver nanoparticles using the naturally available gellan gum as a reducing and capping agent is reported. Further, exploiting the gel formation characteristic of gellan gum silver nanoparticle incorporated gels have also been prepared. The optical properties, morphology, zeta potential and long-term(More)
The present work was undertaken with the objectives of improving the dissolution velocity, related oral bioavailability, and minimizing the fasted/fed state variability of repaglinide, a poorly water-soluble anti-diabetic active by exploring the principles of nanotechnology. Nanocrystal formulations were prepared by both top-down and bottom-up approaches.(More)
The purpose of the present study was to control in vitro burst effect of the highly water-soluble drug, ropinirole hydrochloride to reduce in vivo dose dumping and to establish in vitro–in vivo correlation. The pharmacokinetics of two entirely different tablet formulation technologies is also explored in this study. For pharmacokinetics study, FDA(More)
To evaluate the possibility of improved drug delivery of quetiapine fumarate (QTP), a nanoemulsion system was developed for intranasal delivery. Effects of different HLBs of Emalex LWIS 10, PEG 400 and Transcutol P, as co-surfactants, were studied on isotropic region of pseudoternary-phase diagrams of nanoemulsion system composed of capmul MCM (CPM) as oil(More)
BACKGROUND Oral therapy for pulmonary tuberculosis (TB) treatment suffers from the limitation of hepatic metabolism leading insufficient concentration of antitubercular (anti-TB) drugs in alveolar macrophage which harbors Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB). Targeted aerosol delivery of antituberculous drug to lung is efficient for treating local lung TB(More)
Pyrimethamine is a standard antiprotozoal drug recommended for prophylaxis and treatment of malarial infections. Limited bioavailability, slow onset of action, and life-threatening side effects restrict its use. Hence, in the present study, pyrimethamine nanosuspension was prepared with the objective to improve its dissolution rate and pharmacokinetic(More)
