Herbal drugs have been most important selectiom of medicine in all cultures from ancient times. Various plant extract have been observed to show a multiplicity of biological activity such as immunomodulator activity, hepatoprotective activity, antilipidemic activity etc.  Plant extract great bioactivity in-vitro, but poor bioactivity in-vivo or in animal models. Basic reasons for the poor bioactivity of herbal extracts are that the bioactive components of these herbs have multiring molecular structures which cannot be permeate into the blood by simple passive diffusion and the bioactive phytoconstituents are most part water dissolvable, consequently, their destitute lipid dissolvbility. To overcome this drawback pharmaceutical researcher developed novel lipid based drug delivery system is advantageous in delivering the herbal drug at the site of action which minimize the toxic effect and increase the absorption and bioavailability. One delivery system designed to improve the in vivo solubility and hence bioavailability of ineffectively dissolvable herbal drugs involves the incorporation of standardized herbal extracts into phospholipids to form a lipidfriendly complex called a herbosome. The aim of present study is compile all herbosomes related data these are helpful for researchers. Herbal drugs have been most important selectiom of medicine in all cultures from ancient times.

According to the latest cancer statistics presented worldwide, there has been a dramatic increase in the rates of occurrence of some cancers, particularly in the more developed countries. Although many therapeutic strategies to prevent and/or cure this disease have been proposed and evaluated by clinicians and researchers, there remains a need to find more effective approaches. Monoclonal antibodies, that are produced in vitro, can be used in cancer treatment in a number of ways. They may enhance the immune system by reacting with certain types of cancer cells. They can be programmed to act against specific cell growth factors to interfere with the growth of cancer cells. Furthermore, they may be linked to anticancer drugs, radioactive substances, other biologic therapies, or other toxins (antibody – drug conjugates). Numerous studies have been done to find out the cure for cancer but to no avail. Herbals have been considered as efficient anticancer agents and their importance in the treatment and management of cancer cannot be overlooked. Present review is a sincere attempt to compile the most promising anticancer agents from plant origin and list their major cancer curative potentials.

The research was aimed to formulate and evaluate floating tablets of Metoprolol Succinate using a combination of natural polymers such as guar gum and xanthan gum as well as a combination of natural and synthetic polymer such as guar gum and HPMC by direct compression and wet granulation method. Metoprolol succinate  is a ?1- selective adrenergic blocker, used in the management of hypertension, angina pectoris etc. Since the drug has relatively short half-life about 3-7hrs, multiple administration is required every 3-7hrs. The addition of gel-forming polymer, and gas-generating agent was essential to achieve buoyancy. Pre -compression parameters like angle of repose, flow rate, bulk density, tapped density, carr’s index and hausner's ratio of all formulations showed good flow properties. The four batches of floating tablets were formulated with different polymers and were evaluated for hardness, friability, weight variation, drug content uniformity, Invitro buoyancy, swelling Index, Invitro drug release, adhesion retention period. The formulations containing  natural  polymers have better-sustained release. It releases the drug upto 12hrs and also shows good buoyancy. The formulation containing (Guar gum + Xanthan gum) prepared by wet granulation method was found to be best among all the formulation batches. It shows floating lag time (20sec) and prolonged floating duration upto (12 hrs) which was controlled release characteristic. The maximum release observed at 11 hrs was 98.88%. The result indicate that floating tablet of Metoprolol Succinate containing Guar gum and Xanthun gum  prepared by wet granulation method provide better option for controlled release and improve bioavailability.

Corticosteroid containing ocular formulation is very exigent tasks faced by the pharmaceutical industry while designing drugs acting on various ocular related diseases. Because ocular drug delivery faces various limitations like complex ocular anatomy and poor ocular bioavailability of drugs due to the high turnover rate of tears, lower corneal permeation, and rapid nasolacrimal drainage, and most important is irritation to the eye caused due to corticosteroid structure. The preferred dosage form for ocular delivery of corticosteroid is a solution or the ointment, but to sustain the level of drug at the target site during therapy is not possible so it is necessary to formulate novel drug delivery techniques. A large number of novel carrier drug delivery systems systems have been developed to overcome the above problems but among them, cubosomal drug delivery is a safe and effective technique for corticosteroid ocular drug delivery. Cubosomes are distinct, sub-micron; self assembles liquid crystalline particles having honeycomb (cavernous) structure which separate two internal aqueous channels and large interfacial area; having particle size ranges from 10-500 nm in diameter. This review briefly describes the ocular administration of corticosteroids with the cubosomal drug delivery system along with various drugs studied in ocular drug delivery, a method used for the preparation of Ocular cubosomes and its evaluation parameter. The benefits of cubosomal drug delivery will likely be applied widely in all treatment, diagnostic, and research aspects of ophthalmology in the future.

BACKGROUND: Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate (BMAC) is a new class of material known as Orthobiologics. The aspirate is rich in mononuclear cells, of which bone marrow stem cells form an integral part, which develop into osteogenic cell lines and form bone at the site of injection. BMAC gives results similar to surgical methods of treating non-union such as bone grafting. The objective of our study is to investigate the efficacy of the proposed method and to assess the outcome as well as the complications of the procedure. AIM: To evaluate Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate in Non union of fractures. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We performed a multi centre study by including twenty one patients who are diagnosed with non-union and delayed union of fractures. This is a non-randomized study. Bone Marrow is aspirated from the iliac crest. Ficoll solution is used for density gradient centrifugation for isolation of mononuclear stem cells. Later the concentrate is injected into the defect site. Bone formation was evaluated by x-rays in two standard planes. Level of significance was set at P<0.05. RESULTS:The critical osseous defect reached observable union by a mean of 38 ± 1.38 weeks. A distance of 5 mm or less between the fractures ends resulted in healing. CONCLUSION: Obtained results indicate that the method is feasible and effective in the management of Non union and delayed union of fractures.

Background- Lung cancer is one of the most aggressive, rapidly metastasizing and prevalent type of malignancy globally and is the major cause of morbidity and mortality. Aim- The study aims at analyzing the epidemiological patterns of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) in South India. Materials and methods- This is a retrospective analysis of prospectively collected data conducted at a government cancer hospital after the ethics committee clearance. The study was conducted for a duration of six months (October 2019 to March 2020). Required patient’s data was collected from their case sheets. Obtained data was then entered and analyzed in SPSS. Results- 140 patients were included in the study, majority (70%) were males and 30% were females. The male: female ratio was 2.3:1. Large number of patients were within the age group of 41-60 years and about 63% were smokers and 37% were non-smokers. The most common type of histology was adenocarcinoma (60%) and common symptom at presentation was SOB in majority of patients. Statistically higher occurrence of all the histology types were seen in smokers than non-smokers. Bone followed by lung were the most common sites of metastases. A significant correlation was found between the adenocarcinoma histology among non-smokers and squamous cell histology among smokers. Most of the subjects were diagnosed in advanced stages (stage-4), thus treatment provided was mostly palliative in nature. Subjects with adenocarcinoma and with EGFR mutation were benefited when treated with Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor- Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitor (EGFR-TKI) Gefitinib. Conclusion- Smoking still remains the major risk factor. Males and smokers are at a higher risk of developing lung cancer when compared to females and non-smokers. Adenocarcinoma is the most commonly seen type of histology among non-smokers and squamous cell type of histology among smokers. Our study demonstrates the global shift of rise in adenocarcinoma histology in India. This information may help the clinicians for better understanding of the present scenario of the NSCLC histology epidemic which may further help in planning of better health care interventions.
