|Abstract||Prior understanding on the in vitro release profile of the drug from drug eluting devices such as stent (DES) is crucial in designing and optimizing the drug embedded coating or matrices. In fact, assessing in vitro release profile is a mandatory requirement prior to the clinical evaluation of DES. The in vitro release is also employed to estimate parameters such as T1/2. The release profile largely depends on the release medium selected for the studies. Normally PBS with a pH of 7.4 is used for assessing the release kinetics of the drug. Often drug undergoes irreversible changes such as hydrolysis in PBS leading to erroneous assessment of the release profile. This is particularly true in the case of sirolimus, one of the widely used drugs in various applications. We studied the influence of various media on the release profile of sirolimus from DES. The data generated Suggested that a release medium consisting of 9:1 (v/v) of normal saline and isopropanol is a most suitable one for assessing in vitro the release kinetics of sirolimus from DES.

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
