  1. Metformin reactivity with biuret: application to tablets

    Chahin, Cecilia L.; Delfino, Mario R.; Sarno, María del C.
    A spectrophotometric method was developed for the analysis of metformin, based on its reaction with the biuret reagent. A complex with λmax = 495 nm and stoichiometry 2:1 (metformin-Cu) is generated wich allows the quantification of metformin in tablets. Physicochemical parameters of the product were determined. Sample conditioning by centrifugation was necessary to separate insoluble excipients. Polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) was isolated by a solid-liquid extraction with SPE-SCX resin in order to eliminate its interference on the absorbance of the complex. The proposed method was found to be highly precise, having a relative standard deviation, CV % = 0.68. Using this approach...

  5. Antihistaminic activity of Ricinus communis roots using clonidine induced catalepsy in mice

    Taur, Dnyaneshwar J.; Patil, Ravindra Y.
    Clonidine, an α2 adrenoreceptor agonist, induces dose dependent catalepsy in mice, which releases histamine from mast cells which is responsible for different asthmatic conditions. Ricinus communis Linn (Euphorbiaceae) is a medicinal plant; root is sweetish and has been used traditionally in the treatment of inflammation, pain fever, asthma, bronchititis and leprosy. In present study ethanol extract of R. communis roots (ERCR) at doses 100, 125 and 150 mg/kg intraperitoneally was evaluated for antihistaminic activity using clonidine induced catalepsy in mice. Finding of investigation showed that chlorpheniramine maleate and ERCR inhibit clonidine induced catalepsy significantly P < 0.001 when compare to...

    Raman spectroscopy in combination with partial least-squares (PLS) regression method was developed for sulphamethoxazole (SMZ) and trimethoprim (TMP) simultaneous determination in powder mixtures. The calibration set was designed with 18 samples and validation set with 9 samples, containing different SMZ and TMP concentrations. The concentration ranges were 400-900 mg/g for SMZ and 80- 240 mg/g for TMP. The proposed procedure was validated by comparison with the official method (HPLC). Mean root square error of calibration (RMSEC) and mean root square error of prediction (RMSEP) were calculated. RMSEC found was 30.96 mg/g to SMZ and 14.36 mg/g to TMP, respectively. RMSEP...

    Marques, Lucas M. M.; Medeiros, Maria G. F. de; Nunes, Lívio C. C.; Citó, Antônia M.G.L.; Lopes, José A. D.; Souza, Alexandre A.; Souza, Claide M. L.
    Thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) were used to investigate drug-excipient interactions and, in consequence, their compatibility. For this purpose, binary mixtures of olanzapine drug substance and the excipients croscarmellose sodium, magnesium stearate and microcrystalline cellulose, were prepared and analysed. By the analysis of the binary mixtures DSC and TG curves it were observed changes on the temperature and enthalpy values of the drug melting and decomposition peak, with the likely formation of intermediate substances.

    D'Souza, Marina G.; Bheemappa, Eswarappa; Pai, Vasantakumar K.; Byahatti, Vivek V.; Tule, Chandramouli
    The present study has been undertaken to screen the anthelmintic potential of aqueous root extracts of Aristolochia indica Linn. and A. tagala Cham. against adult Indian earthworm Pheritima posthuma and round worms Ascaridia galli. Different concentrations of the extracts ranging from 2-8 mg/mL were screened. Piperazine citrate was used as reference standard. Extract of A. tagala was found to be more potent and effective at the dose level of 2 mg/mL compared to the extract of A. indica. Extracts showed dose dependant activity. The study reports that the plants A. indica and A. tagala roots possess potent anthelmintic properties.

  10. Development and evaluation of carvedilol/ polyethylene oxide matrix tablets

    Barboza, Fernanda M.; Stulzer, Hellen Karine
    Hydrophilic matrix tablets were developed with carvedilol (CRV), using different molecular weights of polyethylene oxide (PEO). Investigations were carried out in order to verify the tablets performance. All formulations satisfied the official requirements. Water uptake studies were influenced by pH value and polymer concentration. CRV release was sustained for 23 and 19 h, in acid and neutral conditions, respectively. The mechanism involved in drug release was characterized by anomalous behavior for all formulations in phosphate buffer whereas in acid conditions they presented a Fickian kinetics, Case II transport and Super Case II transport kinetics for different formulations.

    Ribeiro, Paulo R. S..; Pezza, Leonardo; Pezza, Helena; Tognolli, João O.
    A new spectrophotometric method was developed for the determination of captopril (n donor) through charge transfer complex formation with p-chloranil (π acceptor). The different experimental parameters that affect the absorbance intensity were carefully studied. Thus, these parameters were optimized using chemometric methods of fractional factorial and central composite design. At the optimum reaction conditions, the rectilinear calibration graphs were obtained in the concentration range 1.86 x 10-4 to 7.38 x 10-4 mol/L captopril with an excellent correlation coefficient (r = 0.9996). The proposed procedure could be applied successfully for the determination of the investigated drug in their pharmaceutical dosage forms...
