Use of soy isoflavones on hormone replacement therapy during climacteric

Menopause is the physiological stage of women's lives, which occurs in the transition from reproductive to non-reproductive phase. During this period, physiological and clinical changes may occur due to the decline of estrogen production by the ovaries. In expectation of a better quality of life during this period, women seeking hormone replacement therapies that can minimize the unpleasant symptoms of menopause....

In vitro adsorption kinetic model of phenobarbital onto powdered seeds of Garcinia kola

The in vitro adsorption kinetics of phenobarbital on Garcinia kola seed powder was investigated. Batch adsorption experiment to determine effects of adsorbent dose (0.1 to 2.0 g), adsorbate concentration (50 to 200 ppm), contact time (20 to 300 min) and temperature (298 to 318 K) was conducted. Adsorption data were subjected to different experimental and theoretical adsorption kinetic models (first order, second order,...

Development and validation for the determination of residual solvents of pharmaceutical formulations of flucloxacillin sodium using head space gas chromatography

An accurate and novel method was developed for the determination of residual solvents of flucloxacillin sodium by using head space gas chromatography (HSGC). The determination was done on Clarus 400 (PerkinElmer) with Total Chrome Navigator software. The residual solvents were separated on Elite - 5 fused silica capillary column 30 m long and 0.32 mm in internal diameter. Beer’s law is obeyed in the concentration...
