OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the safety and efficacy of contact lens-assisted crosslinking (CA-CXL) in progressive keratoconus with thin corneas (350-400 µm).

METHODS: Forty eyes (30 patients) underwent epithelium-off CA-CXL with iso-osmolar riboflavin and ultraviolet-A irradiation for 30 min (fluence, 3 mW/cm2). A non-ultra-violet-absorbing soft contact lens (sCL) soaked in riboflavin was applied over the cornea during irradiation. Demarcation line (DL) depth was measured 1 month postoperatively. Endothelial cell count (ECC) was measured preoperatively and 3 months postoperatively. Distance uncorrected visual acuity (UDVA) and best spectacle-corrected visual acuity (BDVA), and maximum keratometric values (K max) were evaluated preoperatively and 9 months postoperatively.

RESULTS: The sCL added a mean thickness of 100.05±1.23 µm. The mean ECC was 2,982±165 cell/mm2 preoperatively and 2,955±125 cell/mm2 postoperatively (endothelial cell loss, 0.9%, P=0.21). The mean DL depth was 204.8±20.2 µm. There was significant improvement in UDVA (P<0.001) and BDVA (P=0.011) with a stable K max (P=0.06).

CONCLUSION: Contact lens-assisted crosslinking was safe and effective, with endothelial loss less than 1% after 3 months and stable corneal tomography over 9 months, with improved visual acuity. Demarcation line depth was found to be shallower than conventional CXL. Therefore, the long-term efficacy of CA-CXL requires further study.

The exclusive use of plant juices, not as a mere supplement to synthetic culture media, for culturing rhizospheric microorganisms (RMO) is introduced here. Juices were prepared from desert (Mesembryanthemum crystallinum L., Zygophyllum album L., Carpobrotus edulis L.) as well as cultivated (Trifolium alexandrinum L., Beta vulgaris L.) plants. Colonies of RMO (Azospirillum brasilense, Enterobacter agglomerans and Klebsiella pneumoniae) nicely developed on surface-inoculated agar plates prepared from crude and diluted juice of M. crystallinum (ice plant). Furthermore, hundreds of RMO colonies developed on various standard culture media were replicated (>90%) on agar plates of different plant juices. RMO cells grew nicely in liquid ice plant juice, with doubling times comparable to those grown in the reference culture medium. RMO populations resident in various host plants were able to develop on culture media prepared from homologous and heterologous juices. The application of a thin semi-solid overlay agar on the surfaces of inoculated agar plates significantly increased the recovery of micro-colonies on agar plates, particularly those prepared from plant juices.

The objective of this study was the development of a colon-targeted microspheres which were compressed into tablets containing the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory bumadizone calcium hemihydrate. [corrected]. A 3(2) full factorial design was adopted for the evaluation of the prepared microspheres. The effect of two independent variables namely polymer type (Eudragit RS100, ethyl cellulose and cellulose acetate butyrate), and drug: polymer ratio (1:1, 9:1 and 18:1) was studied on the entrapment efficiency and in vitro drug release for 12 h. Colon targeting aims to minimize the release of the drug off target area (pH 1.2 and 6.8) and to maximize the release of the drug in target area (pH 7.4). Candidate formulae were compressed into core tablets and colon targeting was achieved using the enzyme-dependent polymer (pectin) as coat in three different concentrations 50, 75 and 90%. Candidate formula F15 (microspheres prepared using BDZ:CAB in a ratio of 18:1 and compressed into tablets using 50% pectin and 50% Avicel in the coat) was able to adequately modulate drug release avoiding drug release in the gastric ambient, and reaching the colonic targeting where 99.7% release was achieved within 12 h following zero-order model. In vivo studies showed that F15 achieved significant decrease in myeloperoxidase activity and inflammation with delayed Tmax (4 h) and lower Cmax (2700 ng/ml) when compared to marketed product.

Abstract Dabigatran etexilate (DABE) is a low-molecular-weight prodrug that is converted after oral administration to dabigatran (DAB)—a directly acting oral anticoagulant. In this study, an LC–MSMS assay was developed and validated for the determination of DABE, free \{DAB\} and its equipotent O-glucuronide conjugates in plasma. Owing to the susceptibility of \{DABE\} and \{DAB\} to chemical hydrolysis, cleavage of the O-glucuronide moiety was carried out using β-glucuronidase enzyme. Free and total plasma concentrations of \{DAB\} were determined in incurred plasma samples before and after enzymatic cleavage (50 °C and 3 h), respectively. RP-HPLC separation was carried out using acetonitrile: water (30:70, v/v), adjusted to pH 3.0 using formic acid. Tandem mass spectrometric detection at positive electrospray ionization in the \{MRM\} mode was then employed for the determination of \{DABE\} and DAB. The analysis was carried out within 5.0 min over a linear concentration range of 1.00–600.00 ng/mL for the prodrug and its active metabolite. Validation was carried out according to \{FDA\} guidelines for bioanalytical method. The recoveries were higher than 89.48%, the accuracy was within 98.33–110.12% and the \{RSD\} was below 10% for the studied compounds in both incurred plasma and quality control samples. Results of incurred sample re-analysis and incurred sample stability revealed less than 10% variability. This indicated good assay precision and sufficient stability of target analytes in their real matrix at the employed experimental conditions. The applicability of the assay for therapeutic drug monitoring and the determination of the pharmacokinetic parameters were demonstrated.
