Bisbenzylisoquinoline (BBIQ) alkaloids are a diverse group of natural products that demonstrate a range of biological activities. In this study, the in vitro antiplasmodial activity of three BBIQ alkaloids (cycleanine [compound 1], isochondodendrine [compound 2], and 2'-norcocsuline [compound 3]) isolated from the Triclisia subcordata Oliv. medicinal plant traditionally used for the treatment of malaria in Nigeria are studied alongside two semisynthetic analogues (compounds 4 and 5) of cycleanin...

Abstract This study reports the development and characterization of taste masked, freeze-dried composite wafers for potential oral and buccal delivery of low dose aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid) to prevent thrombosis in elderly patients with dysphagia. The wafers were formulated by combining metolose (MET) with carrageenan (CAR), MET with chitosan (CS) at low molecular weight or CAR with CS using 45% v/v ethanol as solvent for complete solubilization of acetylsalicylic acid. Each wafer contained ...

Three-dimensional (3D) bioprinting is considered as a novel approach in biofabricating cell-laden constructs that could potentially be used to promote skin regeneration following injury. In this study, a novel crosslinked chitosan (CH)–genipin (GE) bioink laden with keratinocyte and human dermal fibroblast cells was developed and printed successfully using an extruder-based bioprinter. By altering the composition and degree of CH–GE crosslinking, bioink printability was further assessed and comp...

Abstract Development of mobile composition of matter (MCM)-41 silica nanoparticles faces challenges, e.g. surface charge properties, antigen loading efficiency, protecting from enzymes and harsh GIT environment and effective release at target mucosal site. We report the production and characterization of polymer and amine modified MCM-41 type silica nanoparticles for oral antigen delivery and with ovalbumin (OVA) as model antigen. Nanoparticles were characterized by dynamic light scattering (DLS...

Abstract Nanoemulsions are very interesting systems as they offer capacity to encapsulate both hydrophilic and lipophilic molecules in a single particle, as well as the controlled release of chemical moieties initially entrapped in the internal droplets. In this study, we propose a new two-step modified ultrasound-assisted phase inversion approaches-phase inversion temperature (PIT) and self-emulsification, to prepare stable o/w nanoemulsions from a fully water-dilutable microemulsion template f...
