Conferences (Abstract)

  • 01Ashima Ahuja, Jitendra Gupta, Reena Gupta.Human skin is considered as the first line of defense and barrier against the majority of infections caused through the skin that affect humans. Healthy skin promotes a healthy body that can be achieved with the usage of modern, allopathic and natural remedies. Major skin ailments af-fecting humans are skin cancers, eczema, herpes infection, fungal infection, anti-aging, itching, in-sect bites, pemphigus vulgaris, trauma, psoriasis, athlete’s foot infections, rashes, skin pigmenta-tion, acne, major and minor wound infections that are slowly becoming a burden on health care. Skin infections can be treated from sources that originate from animals and plants. In spite of ad-vancements in science and technology, the emergence of natural herbal remedies for managing skin disorders has become a pivotal and essential contributor in treating skin infections due to in-creased demand for herbals and their lower price, and continuous adverse effects of modern medicines. In the recent era, herbal extracts and their phytomedicines have made a vital contribu-tion to human health care. Herbal products nowadays are considered as a single line of treatment for many diseases like Cancers, Diabetes, Cardiovascular and Brain disorders, thereby creating awareness regarding purity, efficacy and safety of herbal medicines for health care management. Many therapeutically active natural herbal resources like Aloe, Neem, Liquorice, Tulsi, Amla, Pa-paya, Ginger and Eucalyptus are potent and safe in the treatment of dermatological infections. This review article summarizes the significance of herbal plants for protecting, treating and minimizing skin infections through the utility of herbal pharmaceuticals like creams, decocted extracts, poul-tice, paste and lotions that aid in the treatment of skin infections and diseases at a relatively lower cost with lesser side effects as compared to modern and allopathic medicines.’’ IIMT, Noida, U.P, 29 Feb, 2020.
  • 02Ashima Ahuja, Jitendra Gupta, Reena Gupta. ‘’Lamivudine an antiretroviral(ARV) drug effective against HIV through reverse transcriptase resulting in termination of DNA chain were casted as transdermal patches act as a non-invasive delivery of medication across skin membrane in order to improve patient compliance & minimise the side effects of oral medication. The oral bioavailability (80%, plasma half life 6hrs) of lamivudine is poor due to high pass first effect this lead to formulation of polymeric based matrix trans-dermal patches of LAMto provide better rational to control the drug release across the membrane. This study focuses on usage of polymers HPMCK 4M, Eudragit RS 100 &evaluated for Drug polymer interaction using FTIR, other parameters like physical appearance, thickness, drug content uniformity,(%) moisture absorption, folding endurance, tensile strength, in-vitro drug release study performed using phosphate buffer (pH 7.4). In-vitro drug release showing LAM2 (1:1) showed highest percentage (98.55±0.03%) of drug release following zero kinetics.’’ AICTE-Sponsored. SCOPE, Indore, 18 Jan, 2020.
