|Abstract||A floating type dosage form (FDF) of piroxicam in hollow polycarbonate (PC) microspheres capable of floating on simulated gastric and intestinal fluids was prepared by a solvent evaporation technique. Incorporation efficiencies of over 95% were achieved for the encapsulation. In vitro release of piroxicam from PC microspheres into simulated gastric fluid at 37 C showed no significant burst effect. The amount released increased with time for about 8 h after which very little was found to be released up to 24 h. In intestinal fluid, the release was faster and continuous and at high drug payloads, the cumulative release reached above 90% in about 8 h. In vivo evaluation of different dosage forms of piroxicam such as free drug, drug-encapsulated microspheres and microspheres along with a loading dose of free drug in rabbits showed multiple peaking in the plasma concentration-time curve suggesting enterohepatic recirculation of the drug. Pharmacokinetic analysis showed that the bioavailability from PC microspheres alone was about 1.4 times that of the free drug and it was about 4.8 times for the dosage form consisting of the microspheres plus the loading dose. The elimination half life was increased by about three times for the microsphere preparation alone and nearly about six times for the dosage form comprising of microspheres and a loading dose in comparison to the free drug. Data obtained in this study demonstrated that FDF of piroxicam in PC microspheres was capable of sustained delivery of the drug for longer periods with increased bioavailability.

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 (NDL India) pilot 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. NDL India is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading Indian languages. It is being arranged to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular form of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examination, 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. The pilot project is devising a framework that is being scaled up with respect to content volume and diversity to serve all levels and disciplines of learners. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDL India 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 respective organization from where the contents are sourced and NDL India has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDL India portal up and running smoothly. However, NDL India takes no responsibility for, and will not be liable for, the portal being unavailable due to technical issues or otherwise.
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 (NDL India) pilot project.
