Title: Hot melt extrusion an emerging drug delivery technology of 21st Century.

Abstract:

Hot melt extrusion (HME) is emerging technology which is gaining high importance in the pharmaceutical industry as a novel technique for the preparation of various dosage forms and drug delivery systems, for example granules and sustained release tablets. It is a fast growing technology platform that is utilized to solve difficult formulation challenges, primarily in the area of solubilization. Due to fast processing, high degree of automation, absence of solvents, simple and continuous operation and ability to process poorly compactable material into tablet form are some of the main advantages offered over conventional processing by this emerging technique. Applications of HME in pharmaceutical industry continues to grow and recent success of this technique have made it a useful tool of consideration as a drug delivery solution. The use of hot-melt extrusion (HME) within the pharmaceutical industry is steadily increasing, due to its proven ability to efficiently manufacture novel products. . HME involves the application of heat, pressure and agitation through an extrusion channel to mix materials together, and subsequently forcing them out through a die. Twin-screw extruders are most popular in solid dosage form development as it imparts both dispersive and distributive mixing. It blends materials while also imparting high shear to break-up particles and disperse them. HME extrusion has been shown to molecularly disperse poorly soluble drugs in a polymer carrier, increasing dissolution rates and bioavailability. The utilization of hot-soften expulsion (HME) inside the pharmaceutical business is consistently expanding, because of its demonstrated capacity to productively make novel items. The procedure has been used promptly in the plastics business for longer than a century and has been utilized to make clinical gadgets for a very long while. The improvement of novel medications with poor dissolvability and bioavailability brought the use of HME into the domain of medication conveyance frameworks. This has explicitly been appeared in the advancement of medication conveyance frameworks of both strong dose structures and transdermal patches. HME includes the utilization of warmth, weight and tumult through an expulsion channel to combine materials, and along these lines driving them out through a kick the bucket. Twin-screw extruders are generally well known in strong measurement structure advancement as it gives both dispersive and distributive blending. It mixes materials while additionally granting high shear to separation particles and scatter them. HME expulsion has been appeared to molecularly scatter ineffectively dissolvable medications in a polymer bearer, expanding disintegration rates and bioavailability. The most widely recognized trouble experienced in delivering such scatterings is adjustment of shapeless medications, which keeps them from recrystallization during capacity. Pharmaceutical mechanical providers, of the two materials and gear, have expanded their improvement of hardware and synthetic concoctions for explicit use with HME. Unmistakably, HME has been distinguished as a significant and huge procedure to additionally upgrade tranquilize solvency and strong scattering creation. The pharmaceutical improvement of nebulous strong scatterings (ASDs) by hot-liquefy expulsion (HME) is quickly evaluated. A deliberate bit by bit approach is introduced, where thermodynamics, polymer screening, multivariate measurements and procedure enhancement are consolidated, to expand the accomplishment of HME-based medication item advancement. The quality by structure (QbD) idea is acquainted and applied with HME. Steps and devices for its successful execution are given, including hazard evaluation featuring pivotal focuses. The specialized and logical specificities of HME-based ASDs are talked about considering the current worldview of medication advancement and in-accordance with administrative rules from the ICH areas. Contextual investigations of as of late affirmed HME items are introduced. Pharmaceutical improvement expects to give vigorous information through the utilization of deliberate methodologies that permit planning a quality item and its assembling procedure reliably. The data and information gathered from improvement and creation ought to give the logical comprehension to help a plan space, sedate item particulars and procedure controls. The total comprehension of the plan and procedure is united in the Common Technical Document and afterward used to present another medication application to the capable specialists . In HME-based medication items, a powerful pre-definition appraisal is the way in to a fruitful turn of events. A bit by bit approach, beginning with the thermodynamic assessment of a few frameworks, trailed by a polymer screening test combined with multivariate measurable investigation, is helpful to quickly recognize the most encouraging HME frameworks. This is the best approach to abstain from sitting around idly, cash and exertion in bombed synthesis

Title: TMAC™: A novel affimer® drug conjugate platform to modulate the TME

Abstract:

The Affimer platform is an antibody mimetic scaffold based on the human protease inhibitor, Stefin A and we have generated a range of antagonists against several key checkpoints such PD-L1. With our anti-PDL1 Affimer Fc we have demonstrated total tumour regression in mouse syngeneic models in combination with Talabostat and immunity to rechallenge with tumour cells, showing that we have achieved an immune memory response. Conjugating talabostat to an affimer antagonist using a novel FAP-alpha cleavable linker (TMAC™), we have demonstrated tolerability and efficacy in mouse syngeneic models.

Title: New health care facility commissioning and readiness to go live

Abstract:

Healthcare commissioning process should be safety and quality-oriented activities which validate and document the performance of not only facility but system as well, during the process commissioning team will verify to see if the original or defined objective and criteria are met. Understand the content, definition of commissioning that will take place. Clearly describe the timeline activities of commissioning processes 3. Evaluate the readiness before opening especially need to undertake risk assessment and the identification of potential hazards and the required strategies to eliminate or protect against these hazards during commissioning. Ingrained safety culture in everything we do during commissioning is crucial, therefor after identifying a group of commissioning team members we aligned the definition of hospital commissioning which is facility commissioning and clinical operations commissioning. project projective and identified seven medical flows, we also use simulation for activation during commissioning processes. Input should be also provided from all vertical team like radiology, inpatient, general surgery ect. As well as horizontal team like pharmacy, patient access, finance ect. It is also important to deliberately test emergency response at the same time, in our case, there are 5 major risks are identified and emergency response are also planned and tested making sure contingency plans are in place in case of potential disruptions. The goal is to make sure staff are really focus on safety and keep that mindset throughout the code response process. Commissioning checklist is a useful tool to be put into use throughout the whole processes making sure all aspects are covered, we also developed a simulation evaluation tool to identify gaps and potential improve opportunities. After diagnosing the problems and creating solutions we simulate the suggested solutions as well to choose the most effective and efficient solution which is used to create relevant policies and procedures that reflect the changes we made

Title: Cannabinoids and human immunocompetence: A comprehensive review

Abstract:

Despite anecdotal evidence suggesting phytocannabinoids interact with the human immune system, the precise mechanisms of these interactions remain largely unknown. Even so, numerous publications have reported remarkable concentrations of endo cannabinoid receptors and related proteins in various immune tissues, thus implicating the system as an integral part of immunological function.(Recent clinical researchers further evidence to support endocannabinoids and related endogenous fatty acid derivatives as potent regulators of immune activity. How-ever, the ultimate e_ect of these molecules binding to their associated receptors is highly contingent upon the particular type of immune cell being studied. Furthermore, specific combinations of endocannabinoids and fatty acid derivatives are demonstrated to induce distinct downstream efects. Distilling general assertions to their overall impact on human immunocompetence has remained difficult. As asserted in prior comprehensive reviews, the variable and bi-directional nature of endocannabinoids on immune activity suggests they are vital to maintaining immunological homeostasis within the human body. The nascent _eld of a_ective immunology has established compelling links between human behavior, emotional a_ect, inammation, and immunocompetence. Monoamine neurotransmitters conventionally implicated in the development of a_ective mood dis- orders are also demonstratively essential as regulators of immune activity. This purported cross-talk between the central nervous and immune systems is suggested to be mediated by inammatory markers, such as cytokines and endogenous fatty acid derivatives, thus implicating these compounds as key players in a network of small molecule messengers responsible for signaling numerous organ systems during a coordinated immune response. Phytocannabinoids are widely reported to reduce inammation, emotional stress, pain, and insomnia while improving digestive health and appetite, all of which are direct contributors to human immunocompetence. Recent insight into the `entourage effect' attributes the eficacy of phytocannabinoid therapies to multiple exogenous plant compounds working in concert, suggesting that speci_c combinations are required to induce particular physiological responses, and that phytocannabinoids and terpenes serve to regulate one another in a manner similar to endocannabinoids and fatty acid derivatives. Given their ability to a_ect numerous organ systems and factors contingent to homeostatic immune function, phytocannabinoid therapies have immense clinical potential for the treatment of immunological and inammatory diseases, mood disorders, and beyond.

Title: Intranasal delivery system as new treatment paradigm for the treatment of postmenopausal osteoporosis.

Abstract:

Osteoporosis is the most prevailing disease in postmenopausal women leading to increased risk of fractures, pain and low quality of life. It is a progressive bone disease which remains unnoticed until a fracture occurs. The disease is more predominant in older age population particularly females due to reduced estrogen levels and limited calcium absorption. The cost burden of treating osteoporotic fractures is too expensive therefore primary focus should be treatment at an early stage. Most of the marketed drugs are available as oral delivery dosage forms. The complications as well as patient non-compliance limit the use of oral therapy for prolonged drug delivery. Intranasal delivery system seems to be a promising approach for systemic delivery of drugs through nasal cavity bypassing the first-pass effect. Intranasal delivery has the potential to improve the absorption of the drug, enhance the bioavailability, and provide better patient compliance as well as possibility of self administration. Most of the osteoporotic medications are not absorbed orally due to proteomic nature or first pass metabolism. Therefore, a suitable delivery system can be designed to promote intranasal delivery of therapeutics. We have developed an intranasal in-situ thermosensitive nanoemulgel of raloxifene hydrochloride to overcome the pharmaco-technical limitations of the drug. The delivery system boosted the bioavailability of raloxifene hydrochloride by 7 fold and improved the bone mineral density by 162% when compared with marketed oral tablets.
