FORMULATION, OPTIMIZATION AND EVALUATION STUDY FOR AN ALOE EMODIN SYNTHETIC DERIVATIVE 4,5–DIHYDROXY-9,10-DIOXO-9,10-DIHYDROANTHRACENE-2 CARBOXYLIC ACID IN GEL DOSAGE FORM
ermatologists should be aware of cosmeceutical products and have access to accurate scientific theory with validated data-if any exists-to support cosmeceutical claims. The Question remains whether it is possible to deliver adequate doses to the skin in vivo and to produce clinical or histological effects. It is important to evaluate these new products with a critical and careful methodology, cons...
Cardamom is a seed pod, known since antiquity for its culinary and medicinal properties. The spice is native to evergreen rain forest of southern India and now grown in only few tropical countries. Cardamom has also been found to regulate inflammatory and immune activities and may be useful for cancer prevention. Cardamom extracts are effective against oral pathogenic bacteria like Streptococcus m...
STABILITY INDICATING SIMULTANEOUS ESTIMATION OF METFORMIN AND EMPAGLIFLOZIN IN PHARMACEUTICAL TABLET DOSAGE FORM BY RP-HPLC
A simple, rapid, accurate, precise, specific, sensitive and stability indicating RP-HPLC method has been developed and validated for the simultaneous estimation of Metformin and Empagliflozin in bulk drug and pharmaceutical dosage form. The chromatographic separation was performed on the Kromasil C18 column (250mm×4.6mm, 5μm particle size), using a mobile phase of Buffer: Acetonitrile taken in t...
Nanoemulsions have attracted great attention in research, dosage form design, and pharmacotherapy. This is as a result of some attributes peculiar to nanoemulsions such as optical clarity, ease of preparation, thermodynamic stability and increased surface area. Poor water solubility remains the main culprit for the formulation scientist which can be overcome by canonization. Nanoemulsion is a kine...
STABILITY INDICATING UV SPECTROSCOPIC METHOD FOR THE ESTIMATION OF METFORMIN HYDROCHLORIDE IN BULK AND TABLETS
Background: Forced degradation studies are used to determine the degradation pathways and degradation products of the active pharmaceutical ingredients that could form during storage and facilitate formulation development, manufacturing and packaging. Aim: To develop and validate simple and precise stability indicating UV Spectrophotometric method for Metformin Hydrochloride in the bulk and tablet...
Several liquid crystalline phases are bicontinuous cubic, reversed hexagonal, or reversed cubic phase, and several nanostructure liquid phases. Of the many liquid crystalline phases, bicontinuous cubic phases possess a special status. Dispersed particles of bicontinous cubic liquid crystalline phase (cubosomes) are self assembled nanostructured particles that can be formed in aqueous lipid and sur...
