In this work, polymeric nanofibers, loaded with Trimethoprim– an antibiotic model drugfabricated using electrospinning technique, as a novel method for fast-dissolving drug delivery systems applications. Polyvinylpyrrolidone K90 was used as the fibrous matrix polymer and drug carrier. Characterization and pharmacological examinations of the specimens were carried out using a variety of techniques such as scanning electron microscope, Fourier transform infrared, differential thermal analysis and… Expand
The Delivery of the Novel Drug ‘Halicin’ Using Electrospun Fibers for the Treatment of Pressure Ulcer against Pathogenic Bacteria
TLDR
The results demonstrated that the drug-loaded fibers could successfully release the drug while retaining their biological activity and they may be used as a potential antimicrobial dressing for patients with pressure ulcers caused by multidrug resistant bacteria. Expand
Pharmacological Evaluation of Lavandula stoechas L. for Ethanol-induced Gastric Mucosal Ulcer
TLDR
The aqueous extract of Lavandula stoechas L. extract showed significant anti-ulcer activity in ethanolinduced gastric ulcers and duodenal ulcers when compared with controls, and the GCMS based analysis revealed the presence of 10 phytochemicals including camphor (antimicrobial agent). Expand
