ABSTRACT

   Typhoid fever (TF) is an acute systemic infection caused by Salmonella Typhi, Salmonella Para Typhi A and Salmonella Para Typhi B. It is transmitted by the fecal oral route mainly via contaminated food and water. The developing countries have high rate of morbidity and mortality due to Typhoid fever, epidemics take place in developed world also. There are increased incidences of multi drug resistant in S. typhi strains that has further complicated its management and only a few antibiotics are now effective in treatment of typhoid. We report that the aqueous extracts of fruit peel Citrus sinensis (L.) confer anti typhoid activity against Salmonella Typhi, Salmonella Para Typhi A and Salmonella Para Typhi B respectively on comparison with ciprofloxacin.

ABSTRACT

  Microbial infections are the vast growing disorders in the world. Most of the drugs are used to treat these disorders. Our research was focused mainly on treating the microbial diaseases by formulating the drug cefotaxime sodium into microcapsules for its sustained drug release. Cefotaxime sodium drug has short half-life. The present dosage from was developed to reduce   the frequency of dose administration, ease of dose adjustment & improve patient compliance. In this study sustained release microcapsules were prepared by solvent evaporation technique using ethylcellulose as polymer. Preformulation compatability studies & evaluation studies were performed.
