  • Synthesis of Naproxen pro-drugs for enhanced transdermal absorption
  • Published at:Journal of Chemical and Pharmaceutical Research, 2014, 6(8):1-4
  • Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) such as Naproxen have been used for a long time for the
    treatment of acute and chronic inflammation conditions. However, the oral administration of NSAIDs for a long
    time can cause gastric mucosal damage, which may result in ulceration and bleeding. Therefore, the development of
    a transdermal drug delivery (TDD) system of NSAIDs is of a great interest as it decreases GIT side effect and
    provides a constant release of drug in a determined period of time.

  • Interchangeability between paracetamol tablets marketed in Palestine. Is there a quality reason for ahigher price?
  • Published at:Eastern Mediterranean Health Journal
  • ABSTRACT The objective of this study was to evaluate the quality of 10 commercial paracetamol products
    available on the Palestinian market. We carried out a survey on the price of all paracetamol tablet products and
    assessed their quality. To assess quality, all products were examined visually for their organoleptic properties,
    tested for weight uniformity, friability, disintegration, and dissolution profile, and assayed for paracetamol
    content. All imported products were 2 to 3 times more expensive than the locally produced generic products.
    Based on our testing procedure, all paracetamol products were equivalent to the innovator product except for 1
    imported product which fell below the approved specifications developed for the innovator product
