  • Applications of Novel Drug Delivery Systems for Enhancement
           Bioavailability of Antiretrovirals with Special Focus on Nanotechnology

    • Authors: Dr. S. Sathesh Kumar
      Abstract: Antiretroviral (ARV) therapy is a chemotherapeutic approach to treat viral infections such as AIDS. Remarkable therapeutic strategies improved the mortality rate in HIV patients. However, the neurocognitive disorders associated with HIV is not helmed properly due to the tight blood-brain barrier that restricts majority of ARVs to enter the brain parenchyma through the cerebral capillary endothelium. Conventional formulations are not adequate to reach these needs in the ARV therapy. Moreover, careful monitoring of pharmacokinetic parameters of the ARV drugs is important to achieve utmost therapeutic efficiency. However, the majority of the drugs are confronting this issue due to their poor aqueous solubility and inappropriate tissue permeability. Diversified nanotechnological and varied accustomed approaches were impended using novel polymers (both natural and synthetic) to ameliorate these pharmacokinetic constraints. Ample literature is available about the nanotechnological approaches allude to the development in the field for the enhancement of oral bioavailability, potency with less side effects. Nanotechnological cherishment also helps to control drug resistance and drug abuse. Making sub-micron level drug particles of poor water-soluble ARV drugs revamp the oral bioavailability by amplified surface area, improved interfacial tension at drug and solvent interface. The permeability issues are abolished by tailoring physical structure of the drug particle. Stability in the gastric environment, bypassing the early hepatic metabolism of ARV drugs also can be conquered with nanotechnological contrivances. Among all, nanocarrier, nano vesicular drug delivery system are well-crammed techniques. This review enumerates a detailed picture of bioavailability enhancement techniques for ARV drugs through nanotechnological advents.

  • A Cross-sectional Study on the Extended Role of Clinical Pharmacist in
           Assessing the Risk Factors for Developing Diabetic Foot Ulcers among the
           Diabetic Patients

    • Authors: A. Porselvi
      Abstract: A diabetic foot ulcer (DFU) is the prime cause of poor quality of life among diabetic patients. DFU leads to physical disability and an enormous economic burden on diabetic patients. The development and prognosis of DFU are preventable in most patients by modifying the risk factors for DFU. Programs intervened by clinical pharmacists can enhance rational drugs use and improve the early identification and prevention of DFU. This study intended to prove the beneficial outcome in identifying the risk factors and the provision of patient-tailored referral advice regarding DFU among diabetic patients. This cross-sectional study assessed the neuropathy through Michigan Neuropathy Screening Instrument (MNSI), Monofilament and Vibration test using Tuning Fork and Handheld Doppler for assessing the lower limb vascular disease as per NICE guideline among 137 diabetic patients. 64% of patients were found to have symptoms of neuropathy through the neuropathy assessment test whereas 36% did not have the symptoms. Foot sensory using monofilament test was found to be normal in 49.64% of DFU patients, reduced in 43.80%, and absent in 6.57% of DFU patients. The Ankle Brachial Index (ABI) was found to be normal in 48% of patients, mild in 34% of patients, moderate in 12% of patients, and incompressible in 6% of patients. Clinical Pharmacist intervened risk assessment through Hand-held Doppler, MNSI instrument, and Vibration test helped in screening the DFU patients for Neuropathy, and implementation of effective per patient-tailored education was found to be beneficial in the early identification of DFU and referral to specialty hospitals.

  • Anti-adipogenic Activity of 3-Hydroxyflavone on 3T3-L1 Pre-adipocyte

    • Authors: Madhavan Sankar
      Abstract: Objective: The study proposed to explore the anti-adipogenic activity of 3-Hydroxyflavone on 3T3-L1 pre-adipocyte differentiation. Method: 3T3-L1 pre-adipocytes were differentiated into adipocytes in the presence of (3, 3 × 102 and 3 × 104 ng/well) 3-Hydroxyflavone for 6 days, the untreated 3T3-L1 pre-adipocytes served as control. After differentiation, the adipocytes were subjected to Oil Red O staining and the m RNA expression of leptin, peroxisome proliferator activated receptor (PPARγ), and the Sterol regulatory element-binding transcription factor 1 (SREBP-1) were studied. Results: A round-shaped adipocytes were appeared in the cultured medium on the 6th day of the study period. The untreated adipocytes showed intense accumulation of the red dye; however, a dose-dependent reversal of red dye accumulation was seen in the adipocytes on 3-Hydroxyflavone exposure. The m RNA expressions of leptin, PPAR γ and SREBP in the untreated adipocytes were significantly up regulated. However, on 3-Hydroxyflavone treatment, the m RNA expressions of leptin, PPAR γ and SREBP in the adipocytes were down regulated in a dose-dependent manner. The high dose (3 × 104 ng per well) of 3-Hydroxyflavone appreciably reduced the oil accumulation and also significantly down regulated the expression of leptin, PPAR γ and SREBP in the adipocytes. Conclusion: The 3-Hydroxyflavone displayed the anti-adipogenic activity in the adipocytes by reducing the oil accumulation and also by down regulating the m RNA expression of leptin, PPAR γ and SREBP, which are need for the adipogensis.

  • Age-dependence of Poly(Adenosine Diphosphate-Ribos)yl Polymerase 1
           Inhibition in Liver and Thymocyte Nuclei after the Treatment of Rats with

    • Authors: Anush Asatryan
      Abstract: Objective: Poly(ADP-ribos)yl polymerase 1 (PARP1) inhibitors enter into clinical trials for mono and combination cancer chemotherapy, improving curative potential of DNA-alkylating agents. It is documented that therapeutic outcomes after the treatment of patients with broad spectrum of drugs are age-dependent and reveal sexual dimorphism. We investigated age- and sex-dependent differences in PARP1 inhibition by benzamide (Bam) and adenosine triphosphate (ATP) in rat liver and thymocyte nuclei after the treatment of rats with cisplatin. Materials and Methods: The drug was injected intraperitoneal. Animals were treated according to the regulations of National Centre of Bioetics (Armenia). Cell nuclei were isolated according to the standard procedure. PARP 1 activity was evaluated by nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD)+ consumption. Data are expressed as mean ± S.D. Statistical differences in the results between groups were evaluated by the Student’s t-test. A probability (P) value of <0.05 was considered significant. Key results: Basal PARP 1 activity in rat thymocyte and liver nuclei decreases in the period of animal growth from 6 to 10 weeks. The treatment of intact rat with cisplatin differentially affected PARP 1 activity in liver and thymocyte nuclei. It was shown that efficiency of PARP1 inhibition in thymocyte and liver nuclei by Bam and ATP is age-dependent phenomenon which is affected by in vivo treatment of intact rat with cisplatin. It is suggested that the design of personalized combination therapy regimen should consider cisplatin induced age-dependent changes in PARP 1 inhibition by competing/allosteric inhibitors.

  • The Association between Omeprazole Dosing and Hypomagnesemia in Patients
           with Cardiovascular Disorders

    • Authors: Nermeen Abuelsoud
      Abstract: Background: Patients with acute coronary syndrome should be treated with proton-pump inhibitors (PPIs) to decrease the gastrointestinal complications and hemorrhage associated with antiplatelets use. Hypomagnesemia associated with PPIs is not confirmed yet but if it is confirmed, it may explain the reason of cardiovascular risks associated with PPIs use. Aims: The aims of this study were to determine the association between omeprazole and hypomagnesemia, study the effect of different omeprazole doses in the occurrence of hypomagnesemia, and study the factors that may contribute to this hypomagnesemia. Methods: Over a 1-year period, all patients receiving omeprazole for more than 1 year admitted to the cardiac care unit were enrolled in this study. Patients were divided to three groups according to the omeprazole doses. The association between omeprazole dose and the presence of hypomagnesemia was assessed and compared between the three groups. Results: A total of 105 patients were enrolled in this study. The mean follow-up duration during hospitalization was 5.2 ± 2.9 days. All factors that may affect the incidence of hypomagnesemia were compared between the three groups and there was not any statistically significant difference between the three groups in relation to patient’s age, sex, presence of diabetes mellitus, and concurrent use of digoxin or diuretics. The incidence of hypomagnesemia between the 3 groups was not statistically significant but it was clinically significant. Conclusion: The hypomagnesemia associated with omeprazole may be dose related. This hypomagnesemia may explain the occurrence the cardiovascular events (arrhythmias and sudden death) after omeprazole use, but further studies are needed.

  • Design, Optimization, and Characterization of Herbal Face Pack

    • Authors: Saloni Jain
      Abstract: The goal of this project is to develop and test a polyherbal face pack made of herbal substances for cosmetic purposes. Amla (Emblica officinalis), masoordaal (Lens culinaris), and rose petals were obtained from a local market and dried, powdered, then geometrically blended and analyzed for organoleptic and physico-chemical, general powder characteristics, and chemical assessment. The mixed dry powder has an acceptable flow property, making it ideal for use as a face pack. Four distinct compositions incorporating components such as Amla (E. officinalis), masoordaal (L. culinaris), and rose petals powder were developed with variable quantities and called F1 to F4. Different metrics such as organoleptic qualities, physicochemical parameters, and stability, as well as an irritancy test and microbiological load, were used to assess all of the created compositions. The powder’s particle size ranged from 23.3 to 26.9 m. F2 outperformed all other formulations in terms of physical metrics, skin irritation, and consistency even after stable storage conditions.

  • Role of Topical Flavonoids as Antioxidants to Preserve Healthy Skin
           – A Review

    • Authors: Mrs. Saloni Jain
      Abstract: As a result of the negative effect of some of the horny extract’s associated proteins, the skin is continuously exposed to numerous environmental factors, particularly pollution as well as ultraviolet radiation (UV). As a result, the horny isolate can be adversely affected by the toxic influence of many of its associated proteins. The immediate absorption of UV light through the use of epithelial chromophores, the creation of excited states as well as the subsequent chemical changes, or even photosensitization processes, wherein UV light is absorbed by excited photosensitizer and their responses encourage the production of reactive oxygen species, are all processes that are involved in the environmental pollutants advanced by UV light. Polluting chemicals’ actions are not completely understood, but evidence suggests that one of the key processes involved is oxidative stress caused by lipid peroxidation, which has the potential to cause harm to sebum content, stratum corneum integrity, and skin ageing. Numerous studies have indicated the effectiveness of natural antioxidants, with a focus on natural substances, in promoting the preservation of the skin’s physiological equilibrium.
