Evaluating the Protective and Ameliorative Potential of Unripe Palm Kernel Seeds on Monosodium Glutamate-Induced Uterine Fibroids

Orinamhe Godwin Agbadua, Lilian Etinosa Idusogie, Amadi Samuel Chukwuebuka, Chukwu Sunday Nnamdi, Samuel Sylvester
The study investigated the protective and curative effects of unripe palm kernel seeds on monosodium glutamate-induced uterine fibroid in rats. The rats were in eight experimental groups according to the time of administration of the unripe palm kernel seeds: the first four groups investigated protective effects of UPK for 28 days and the last four groups investigated the curative effects of UPK after treatment with MSG for 28 days. MSG was administered to the animals by oral gavage at a dose of...

Bioactive Constituents of Methanol Extract of Xylopia aethiopica (UDA) Fruits from Nsukka, Enugu State, Nigeria

Innocent Uzochukwu Okagu, Uchenna Ekpereamaka Ngwu, Chinyere Jane Odenigbo
The bioactive compounds in methanol extract of Xylopia aethiopica fruits were determined using a combination of gas chromatography and mass spectrometry (GC-MS). The compound identification was based on the molecular structure, molecular mass and calculated fragments. Interpretation on mass spectrum of GC-MS analyzer (Hewlett Packard GC-MS system) was done using

Ciprofloxacin Hydrochloride Encapsulated into PLGA Nanoparticles for Drug Delivery Application: Fractional Factorial Design

Tajudeen Adebileje, Sikiru Adebileje, P. O. Aye
Over several decades, poly (lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) have been widely used as Micro-and Nano-carriers of therapeutic agents for drug delivery applications. However, encapsulation process of therapeutic agents into PLGA Nanoparticles (NPs) necessitates a defined step to understand the effects and interactions of parameters involved in production process. In pharmaceutics formulations, compared to

The Uses of Cyclopentanone for the Synthesis of Biologically Active Pyran, Pyridine and Thiophene Derivatives

Eman M. Samir
In the recent work, a series of novel pyran and pyridine and thiophene derivatives were designed and synthesized starting from 2-benzylidenecyclopentanone. The reactivity of these derivatives towards different chemical reagent was studied. The antitumor evaluations of the newly synthesized products were measured and the results showed that some of the synthesized products showed high cytotoxicity.

Comparison between Modeling of Cetirizine Solubility Using Different Approaches: Semi-Empirical Density Based Correlations vs. Peng-Robinson EoS

Mostafa Lashkarbolooki, Ali Zeinolabedini Hezave
The tunable nature of the solubility of various compounds, including molecules of pharmaceutical and biological interest, in supercritical fluids (SCFs) makes SCF extraction technology attractive for many separation and purification processes. Among the different influencing parameters, the most important one in the supercritical based processes is the knowledge of solubility of model solute. But, experimental measurement of the solubility of all pharmaceuticals in wide ranges of temperature and...

New Approaches for the Use of Acetoacetanilide in the Synthesis of Thiophenes and Their Fused Derivatives with Anti-Tumor Activity

Rafat M. Mohareb, Sherif M. Sherif, Wagnat W. Wardakhan, Amr S. Abouzied
Acetoacetanilide derivatives 1a-c reacted with either malnonitrile or ethyl cyanoacetate and elemental sulfur to give the thiophene derivatives 3a-f. The reactivity of 3a towards some chemical reagents to give thiophene, theino[2,3-b]pyridine, thieno[2,3-c]pyrimidine and coumarin derivatives was studied. The anti-tumor evaluation of the newly synthesized compounds against the three human tumor cells lines namely breast adenocarcinoma (MCF-7), non-small cell lung cancer (NCI-H460) a...

Simple UV Spectrophotometric Assay of Metronidazole

Safila Naveed, Fatima Qamar
Metronidazole is a derivative of benzimidazole. It is being used widely for the treatment of amoebiasis. An efficient, simple and least time consuming spectrophotometric method for the assay of metronidazole has been developed. Comparison of assay of three different brands of metroni-da- zole has also been available in public medical stores of Karachi, Pakistan. The assay is based on the ultraviolet UV absorbance maxima at about 340 nm wavelength of metronidazole using water as solvent. A sample...

Effect of Acid, Base and Time on Different Brands of Glimepiride

Safila Naveed, Hina Qamar, Wardha Jawaid, Urooj Bokhari

The objective of this study is to develop the degradation studies of different brands of glimepiride available in market. Forced degradation is a powerful tool used routinely in pharmaceutical development in order to develop stability-indicating methods that lead to quality stability data and to understand the degradation pathways of the drug substances and drugs. Glimepiride is a medium- to long-acting sulfonylurea antidiabetic drug as it is the most prescribed oral antih
