Sumatriptan is a potent and selective 5-hydroxytryptamine agonist. It is an effective agent in the treatment of acute migraine attack. Sumatriptan is rapidly but incompletely absorbed following oral administration and undergoes first-pass metabolism resulting in a low absolute bioavailability of 15%. The biological half-life of Sumatriptan is about 2.5 h. The aim was to develop gastro-retentive fl...
Paliperidone is a well-known dopamine antagonist of the atypical antipsychotic class. The present research work was an attempt to formulate and evaluate paliperidone delayed-release tablets. A combination of hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC K100M) and polyvinyl acetate phthalate, cellulose acetate phthalate were used as polymers.

ISOLATION, PURIFICATION, EVALUATION AND TOXICITY STUDIES OF NATURAL EDIBLE MUCOADHESIVE POLYMERS FROM VARIOUS PARTS OF PLANTS AND COMPARED WITH SYNTHETIC MUCOADHESIVE POLYMERS
Mucilages of plant origin have been used widely as demulcent because of their unique properties to bind with the mucous membrane. Isolation of water-soluble components from the natural edible sources was carried out by cold/hot aqueous extraction process followed by the organic solvent precipitation. The yield of Pithecellobium dulce (PD), Prosopis juliflora (PJ), Acacia arabica (AA) and Abelmosch...
