Development of pH-Dependent Nanospheres for Nebulisation- In vitro Diffusion, Aerodynamic and Cytotoxicity Studies.

Drug Res (Stuttg) 2018 Apr 17. Epub 2018 Apr 17.

Department of Pharmaceutics, R C Patel Institute of Pharmaceutical Education and Research, Shirpur, Dhule, Maharashtra, India.

The aim of this work was to evaluate the in vitro performance of nebulized nanosuspension formulation when nebulized using ultrasonic nebulizer. The present investigation deals with successful formulation of Beclomethasone dipropionate loaded HPMCP nanospheres prepared by solvent evaporation technique using PEG 400 as a stabilizer. Beclomethasone dipropionate is a water insoluble drug molecule was encapsulated in HPMCP nanospheres to have pH dependent solubility at basic pH for targeted drug delivery in lung and studied for in vitro cytotoxicity and immediate release capability.

Antibacterial activity of magnetic iron oxide nanoparticles synthesized by laser ablation in liquid.

Mater Sci Eng C Mater Biol Appl 2015 Aug 30;53:286-97. Epub 2015 Apr 30.

Biotechnology Division, Applied Science Department, University of Technology, Baghdad, Iraq.

In this study, (50-110 nm) magnetic iron oxide (α-Fe2O3) nanoparticles were synthesized by pulsed laser ablation of iron target in dimethylformamide (DMF) and sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) solutions. The structural properties of the synthesized nanoparticles were investigated by using Fourier Transform Infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy, UV-VIS absorption, scanning electron microscopy (SEM), atomic force microscopy (AFM), and X-ray diffraction (XRD). The effect of laser fluence on the characteristics of these nanoparticles was studied. Read More

Weekly high-dose ergocalciferol to correct vitamin D deficiency/insufficiency in hemodialysis patients: a pilot trial.

Hemodial Int 2015 Jan 17;19(1):60-5. Epub 2014 Sep 17.

Department of Nephrology, Instituto de Investigaciones Metabólicas, Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Controversy exists on which vitamin D (D2 or D3) and which dosage scheme is the best to obtain and maintain adequate 25 OH D levels in dialysis patients safely. We tried to determine whether high-dose vitamin D2 supplementation could obtain optimal vitamin D status without inducing hypercalcemia. We studied 82 patients on dialysis not taking active vitamin D therapy and supplemented them with oral vitamin D2 72,000 IU/week for 12 weeks followed by 24,000 IU/week as maintenance therapy during 36 weeks.
