APPLICATIONS OF SURFACTANTS IN PHARMACEUTICAL FORMULATION DEVELOPMENT OF CONVENTIONAL AND ADVANCED DELIVERY SYSTEMS
The role of surfactants is very critical in the development of pharmaceutical formulations. The diverse applications in different delivery systems have been highlighted in different reports of formulation development for various conventional and advanced delivery systems. The relevancy of critical micelle concentration and HLB value for the section of surfactants for different drug delivery system...
The liver is an amazingly complex organ which virtually affects every physiological process of the body. The liver is the largest glandular organ in the body and has more function than any other organs. Hepatic disorders which stem from a stressful lifestyle, inappropriate eating habits, and lack of exercise have become one of the major causes of morbidity and mortality in human being. The acute h...
THE MECHANISTIC APPROACH OF THE PROPYLENE GLYCOL AS A CO-SURFACTANT THROUGH “SIX MEMBER CYCLIC HYDROGEN BONDING SYSTEM” FOR THE STABLE AND FLEXIBLE MICROEMULSION DRUG CARRIER
The improvisation of any system has been a challenging task for the scientist in the field of drug delivery. In pursuit of the stable carrier system, here the microemulsion or other meta-state like liquid crystal phase with the specific mechanism, i.e., “six-member stable cyclic system” is highlighted and critically evaluated. The system with co-surfactant (propylene glycol) is examined and co...
EVALUATION OF ANTI-NOCICEPTIVE ACTIVITY OF ETHANOL EXTRACT OF AMARANTHUS SPINOSUS LINN. (ROOTS) IN SWISS ALBINO MICE
Amaranthus spinosus, belongs to Amaranthaceae family, is an annual or perennial herb grows annually; native to tropical America and found throughout India as a weed in cultivated as well as fallow lands. Though the whole plant is used as a laxative, the roots are regarded as highly specific for colitis, and it is also used as antipyretic, febrifuge, diuretic. Other than its culinary value, it is u...
INVESTIGATION OF ANALGESIC ACTIVITY OF AMARANTHUS SPINOSUS LINN. (LEAVES) FROM BANGLADESH IN SWISS ALBINO MICE
The current study was aimed to investigate the analgesic activity of the methanolic extract of Amaranthus spinosus leaf (Family: Amaranthaceae). The analgesic activity was assessed with this extract for their peripheral and central anti-nociceptive potentials using three standard test methods, for instance, acetic acid induced writhing, hot plate and tail immersion methods in Swiss albino mice, at...
