CONCLUSION: The design results revealed that an optimum exposure of 1:2 of isopropanol: formaldehyde vapours for sixty minutes resulted in desired release of second pulse of dose after a predetermined lag time of 5 hours as desired. '3Cap' system was successful in achieving floating and pulsed release of hypertensive drug opening a 'new lease of life' to the existing drug molecule.

In a recent [1] retrospective analysis in 325 non-valvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) patients treated with novel oral anticoagulants (NOAC), authors suggested a higher risk of thrombosis in obese/overweight vs. other patients, particularly those treated with dabigatran; and a higher risk of bleeding, particularly related to factor Xa inhibitors (rivaroxaban, apixaban). They proposed that obesity moderated the NOAC effects, differently for different NOACs. However a) the study did not test for moderation [(warfarin vs.

Authors: Yen HY, Hsu H Abstract Engaging in healthy eating and active living is an effective strategy for preventing noncommunicable diseases in older populations. The purposes were to compare the prevalence rates across countries and explore health factors associated with healthy eating and active living. The data were retrieved from a cross-sectional study conducted by the International Social Survey Program (2011 Health and Healthcare), with structured questionnaire surveys in 32 countries. The results showed that 38.42% reported active living and 39.11% reported healthy eating among 11,250 total respondents. Ol...

Abstract The Amorphophallus genus is a perennial herb which belongs to the family Araceae. There are more than 170 species in this genus, which is widely distributed in tropical and subtropical areas. As a kind of food and medicine Amorphophallus has been used for more than 2000 years in China. Because of the high content of konjac glucomannan (KGM) and dietary fiber, it has attracted more attention worldwide. In this article, the DNA contents of A. konjac, A. albus and A. bulbifer in China, A. albus, A. paeoniifolius and A. muelleri in Indonesia were estimated by using flow cytometry. In the samples of China, the...

In this study, using mitochondrial DNA knowledge, the molecular analysis was performed to classify the recovered species of hymenoptera collected from rabbit carcass, quickly and accurately. A molecular identification method with a 251-bp fragment of the 16S ribosomal gene RNA (16S rRNA) from a single ant species was evaluated. The maximum likelihood method analysis has recovered a generally well-supported phylogeny, with most taxa and species groups currently being recognized as monophyletic. The aculeate consistsof some Hymenoptera's best known. Their sister group has traditionally been considered in Ichneumonoidea. In a...
