Zinc Phosphide has a long history of use and remains an important rodentcide for both commensal and select field rodents. Zinc Phosphide (Rodentcide) associated with both accidental and intentional ingestion. Despite its free availability in the Indian market for use to prevent from rat. It is an uncommon poisoning in India with only a single case report described from India. We report single cases of fatal rodentcide poisoning from a tertiary care hospital in the south state of Tamil Nadu, India.

Title: Effect of 17alpha hydroxyprogesterone caproate injections on bone profile in pregnant women with threatened abortion
Section: Research Article
Category: Pharmacology
Country: India
View Article

Background: There is no adequate evidence from well-controlled studies to substantiate the 17‎α hydroxyprogesterone caproate (17 ‎α HPC) injections effect on the mother health like her bone profile. Aims: To evaluate the effect of 17‎α HPC injections on some bone profile parameters in pregnant women with threatened abortion. Methods: This is a cohort study in which a 22 healthy married pregnant women with age range between 19- 35 years from those who were attending AL–Batool Teaching Hospital in Mosul  from the period of 1st of January 2011 to  1st of  August  2011, complaining of threatened abortion to evaluated to be treated with 17 a HPC intramuscular (IM) injections in a dose of 250 mg every week until the 24-26th week of gestation were included in this study. Another 21 healthy pregnant women who did not complaining of threatened abortion were drawn from the same population and matched with the patients group and they were considered as a control group. The blood samples were collected from both groups at the first visit then at about 26th week of gestation to measure the total serum calcium, serum alkaline phosphatase (ALP), inorganic  phosphorous and albumin by commercial kits. Corrected serum calcium is calculated according to special equation. Results:. There were no significant differences in the mean serum level of all measured bone profile tests in the patients group after treatment with 17‎α HPC  and that of the control group at the 26th  week of gestation compared with the baseline level. Comparing the two groups, there were no significant differences in all measured parameters at the two collection time points. Discussion: Despite widespread clinical use of progestogens, no study exist to find the side effect of 17‎α HPC IM injections on the mother so accordingly this is the first study to evaluate the effect of 17 a HPC IM injections  every week on the indicator of bone profile of the women with threatened abortion. Conclusion: The use of weekly IM injections of 250 mg of 17‎α HPC for the treatment of threatened abortion considered to be safe regarding mother bone.

Title: Preparation and Characterization of Pharmaceutical Grade Chitosan And Hydrated Chitosan Gums for Topical Preparations
Section: Research Article
Category: Development and Validation of Drugs
Country: India
View Article

The main goal of this work is the preparation and characterization of hydrated gums using chitosan for further formulation and topic applications. To achieve this goal several gums from pharmaceutical quality chitosan of low (Mw= 72.180 g/mol) and medium. (Mw= 103.000 g/mol) molecular weight with a 4% w/w were employed. The prepared hydrated gums were characterized by infrared spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy andreological analyses. The spectroscopic study shows no great difference between both gums and most of chitosan bands are exhibited. The rheological studies shows that both gums exhibit a non Newtonian flow independent of the time, with pseudoplastic for low molecular weight chitosan and plastic behavior for the medium molecular weight.
