The main content is Methylene dioxymetamphetamine (MDMA) and Methamphetamine (MA), but because a large amount of demand is not balanced with sufficient supply, ecstasy tablets are often adulterated with various contents, such as Paracetamol (PCT), Caffeine (KFN) and Ephedrine (EFD). Ecstasy tablets are often combined with other active compounds so that they can cause problems in determining the levels of tablets carried out in the Police Forensic Lab, so a cheaper, effective, and fast method is needed in determining the levels of these tablets.</p> <p><strong>Methods:</strong> The research was conducted experimentally with the spectrophotometric method, namely the dual-wavelength method, then the validation was tested based on the validation parameters, namely linearity, accuracy, precision, LOD and LOQ. Then, this method was applied to determine levels of MA, EFD, KFN and PCT in tablet preparations.</p> <p><strong>Results:</strong> The results showed that the application of the dual-wavelength method for the assay was carried out at λ 250.6 nm and 263 nm for KFN, at λ 263 nm and 281.8 nm for MA, at λ 259.4 nm and 255 nm for PCT at λ 255 nm and 236 nm for EFD, respectively. with a level result of 40.05; 1.63; 38.11; 20.21 for MA, EFD, KFN and PCT respectively, and with good precision and accuracy</p> <p><strong>Conclusions:</strong> The dual-wavelength ultraviolet spectrophotometric method was successfully applied to determine the levels of MA, EFD, KFN and PCT mixtures in tablets.</p> <p><strong>Keywords:</strong> <em>methamphetamine, ephedrine, caffeine, paracetamol, dual wavelength method.</em></p> Hutagaol Debora Marsaulina, Muchlisyam M, Sinaga Siti Morin ##submission.copyrightStatement## Thu, 15 Oct 2020 23:04:23 +0530 The Antihyperglycemic Activity of Sea Cucumber (Stichopushermanii) Ethanol Extract Against White Male Rats (Rattus novergicus) <p><strong>Objectives</strong>: The purpose of this study was to determine antihyperglycemic activity of Sea Cucumber (<em>Stichopushermanii</em>) ethanol extract on white male rats, by observing changes in blood glucose levels after being induced by streptozotocin.</p> <p><strong>Design:</strong>The research method used was experimental laboratory, where as test animals were divided into several groups given the test substance.

Teff (Eragrostis tef) grain is a source of major staple food in Ethiopia and contains starch. Teff starch was extracted from milled teff flour using 0.075% sodium metabisulphite. The starch was pregelatinized at 60 oC, 70 oC and 80 oC temperatures.&nbsp; When characterized, the pregelatinized teff starches had enhanced physical attributes such swelling capacity, water absorption capacity, granule density, Carr’s index, Hausener’s ratio, flow rate and angle of repose. When incorporated as disintegrant in chloroquine phosphate tablet formulation at 5% and 10% concentrations, tablets containing pregelatinized teff starches showed faster disintegration time and better compressibility compared to the native starch. Tablets containing pregelatinized teff starch at 70 oC and 10% concentration had the fastest disintegration time with 7.55 min. Pregelatinization, a non-expensive type of physical starch modification can be used to enhance excipient attributes of teff starch for its use as disintegrant in tablet formulations.<strong>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </strong></p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> Fasiledes Assefa, Jemal Dilebo, Tesfaye Gabriel, Yonas Brhane, Kebede Wondu ##submission.copyrightStatement## Thu, 15 Oct 2020 23:12:25 +0530 Comparison of In-vitro Penetration of Transdermal Patch Containing Pure Diclofenac Sodium and Nanoparticles as Analgesic and Anti-Inflammatory <p><strong>Objective: </strong>Diclofenac sodium is a Non Steroid Anti Inflammatory class of drug which has a weakness in oral use in the form of irritation of the digestive tract.

Biyani <p>Parkinson’s disease (PD), or simply Parkinson’s, is a long-term degenerative disorder of the central nervous system that mainly affects the motor system. Parkinson's sickness (PD) has a place with a gathering of conditions called motor system issues, which cause unintended or wild developments of the body. The precise cause of PD is unknown, but some cases are hereditary while others are thought to occur from a combination of genetics and environmental factors that trigger the disease.&nbsp; In PD, brain cells become damaged or die in the part of the brain that produces dopamine--a chemical needed to produce smooth, purposeful movement.</p> <p>Parkinson's ailment is a dynamic sensory system issue that influences development. Indications start progressively, in some cases beginning with a scarcely observable quake in only one hand. Quakes are normal, however the confusion additionally ordinarily causes solidness or easing back of development.In this review article we include Introduction ,How&nbsp; to Parkinson’s disease occurs , mechanism , pathophysiology , Diagnosis , treatment , medication , causes , symptoms&nbsp; of Parkinson’s disease .</p> <p><strong>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </strong></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Pallavi S Mhaske, Shrikrushna Subhash Unhale, Vijaya B Mehetre, Kanchan P Pandhare, Vaishnavi U Petkar, Kailash R Biyani ##submission.copyrightStatement## Thu, 15 Oct 2020 23:52:54 +0530 A Review of Microneedles – Elevation to TDDS Approach and Function in Management of Psoriasis <p>Novel drug delivery system offers several advantages which could outweigh the benefits of other drug delivery system. The transdermal drug delivery system being one of them offers supremacy by by-passing the first pass metabolism which eventually helps in eradication of gastrointestinal irritation. The first patent for microneedles was field in 1970’s, researchers on utilizing microneedles as a drug delivery system has progress significantly. This review aims to provide background on microneedles, clinical benefits and function of microneedles. The microneedle method is much more superior to those traditional transdermal delivery ways because of advantage such as invasive painless, convenience and improves patient compliance. Every type of microneedles has different advantages according to their unique properties and designs. We developed a dissolving microneedle (MN) patch made of hyaluronic acid (HA) with excellent water solubility, biocompatibility and mechanical properties. The traditional therapeutic method is diverse embracing topical drugs, systemic drugs, physical therapy etc.&nbsp; with the limitation of present drug, the demand for new delivery method for psoriasis is in the spotlight. The major drawback of the transdermal drug delivery system is the hindrance created via skin into the systemic circulation. Thus in order to overcome this hurdle a replacement to this type of novel drug delivery system. One of the best pharmaceutical dosage form for those patients. They cannot take medicaments orally.

As the burden of chronic diseases continues to grow globally, so does the impact of non-adherence. Mobile technologies are increasingly being used in health care and public health practice (mHealth) for patient communication, monitoring, and education, and to facilitate adherence to chronic diseases management. Tight glycaemic control is essential, and good adherence is associated with a lower risk of all-cause mortality and hospitalization in people with T2D. A significant number of people with T2D do not take medication as prescribed and therefore have poor outcomes. The key factors for not achieving targets include therapeutic inertia and adherence. Reasons for poor adherence include perception of treatment, com­plexity of treatment and adverse effects. &nbsp;Nonadherence is a common reason for treatment failure and treatment resistance. No matter how it is defined, it is a major issue in the management of chronic illnesses. There are numerous methods to assess adherence, each with its own strengths and weaknesses; however, no single method is considered the best. Nonadherence is common in patients with hypertension, and it is present in a large proportion of patients with uncontrolled blood pressure taking three or more antihypertensive agents. Availability of procedure-based treatment options for these patients has shed further light on this important issue with development of new methods to assess adherence. There is potential for mHealth tools to better facilitate adherence to chronic disease management, but the evidence supporting its current effectiveness is mixed. Further research should focus on understanding and improving how mHealth tools can overcome specific barriers to adherence.</p> <p><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Punam R.

Controlling vector and its intermediate hosts is an effective method for anticipation of human and animal’s diseases. It is essential to have bioactive components that act competently on the agents which produce the illnesses. Synthetic agents have strong surplus effects in humans &amp; other animals, and they cause biological toxicity, affecting animals, plants and disturbing the local environment. Many studies have reported the effect of the Essential Oils (EOs). Essential Oils extracted from the medicinal plants are generally used as insect repellents worldwide. They are very safe and favorable to the environment with minimum ill-effects on animals and public health. It helps to control the vectors and also applicable against pathogens. Commonly Essential Oils easily degrade and cause less environmental pollution. Problems associated to solubility as well as stability lead to the improvement of effective carriers for formulations containing Essential Oils that is nanoemulsion. Nanoemulsion is a colloidal dispersion system, thermodynamically stable, prepared by two different non-miscible liquids assorted with emulsifying agents such as surfactants and co-surfactants, to form a single phase. Nanoemulsion a novel drug delivery system can be formulated by using two different techniques, the persuasion technique and the brute force technique. This review describes some studies accomplished with nanoemulsions as carriers of Essential Oils that have repellent, larvicidal, acaricidal, insecticidal and antiparasitic activities. Thus it can be used as substitutes in the vector control of parasitic and communicable diseases.</p> <p><strong>Keywords: </strong>Nanoemulsion; essential oils; vector control; infectious diseases, insecticidal.</p> Anupam Kumar Pal, Nisha Sharma ##submission.copyrightStatement## Fri, 16 Oct 2020 10:04:44 +0530 Ethosomal Drug Delivery System: A Newer Approach <p>The transdermal drug delivery system is a technique that provides advantages over conventional administration routes such as intravenous ororal route.
