Authors: Teaima MH, El Mohamady AM, El-Nabarawi MA, Mohamed AI Abstract Ondansetron HCl is a (5-HT3) serotonin receptor antagonist, used as anti-emetic drug in combination with anticancer agents. Conventional dosage forms have poor bioavailability and patient compliance. These problems can be reduced by the use of nasal niosomal thermo reversible in situ gelling system; Niosomes were formulated using various surfactants (Span 60, Span 80, Tween 20 and Tween 80) in different ratios using thin film hydration technique. Niosomes were evaluated for particle size, zeta potential, Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) i...

Purpose of review With the exception of familial hypercholesterolaemia, the value of genetic testing for managing dyslipidaemias is not established.

Hypertriglyceridaemia may be caused by rare recessive monogenic, or by polygenic, gene variants; genetic testing may be useful in the former, for which antisense therapy targeting apoC-III has been approved. Familial hi...
