A Retrospective study was carried out at Vivekanandha Medical Care Hospital, Tiruchengode. The study was conducted for 6 months. It was done in anemic patients with various clinical conditions. The patients details and prescriptions were analyzed and it was attached to the data analysis form Microsoft excel 2019 was used to analyze the data. In this Folic acid was utilized by the patients having anemia with stroke. Drugs like pantoprazole, amlodipine was utilized by the patients having anemia with Hypertension. Drugs like ranitidine, amlodipine was utilized by patients having anemia with Diabetes Mellitus. The major co-morbidity of anemia was Hypertension and Diabetes Mellitus. The age of the population was between 15-95 years. The prevalence was higher in male than female with Hypertension and Diabetes Mellitus. This study provides additional knowledge to the Healthcare providers to improve the health, recommended that the primary healthcare to be strengthened and high priority should be given to aspects such as prevention, early diagnosis and treatment of anemia.</p> S.Anandkumar, R.Aishwarya, K.Ananthi, S.Brindha, A.A.Gayathri, M.Gomathi, E.

Saponins, steroids, carbohydrates, alkaloids, glycosides, proteins and amino acids, flavonoids, and other related phytochemicals having N-H bonds were found in Carica papaya leaf extract, which was validated by qualitative phytochemical analysis.From the results of the study was concluded that ethanolic extract of <em>Caricva papaya</em> has the Alkyl halides, carboxylic acids, amines, amides, Alkenes, Ethers, Alcohol compounds.These amines and carboxylic acids are used for Dengue, Dyspepsia,hyperacidity,dysentery and constipation.</p> M.

Sustain release formulation are those which delivers the drug locally or systemically at a predetermined rate for a fixed period of time. The matrix tablet was prepared by direct compression method using by various concentration of chitosan and sodium alginate with combination of various release retardant polymer. The powder mixtures were subjected to various pre-compression parameters such as angle of repose, bulk density, tapped density and Carr’s index shows satisfactory result and the compressed tablets are evaluated for post-compression parameters such as weight variation, thickness, hardness, friability, drug content, <em>in-vitro </em>dissolution and stability studies. <em>In-vitro </em>dissolution studies were carried out for 24 hours using 0.1 N HCL for first 2 hours and pH 6.8 phosphate buffer for 24 hours and the result showed that formulations F<sub>4</sub> and F<sub>7</sub> showed good dissolution profile to control the drug release respectively. Formulation containing higher concentration of chitosan and sodium alginate along with polymers sustained the drug release for the period of 24 hours. The compatibility of the drug, polymers and other excipients were determined by FT-IR Spectroscopy. Results showed that the drug was compatible with polymers and other excipients. The release data was fitted to various mathematical models such as Zero-order, First-order, Higuchi equation and Korsmeyer- Peppas model to evaluate the kinetics and the drug release. The drug release followed first order and the mechanism was found to be non-Fickian. The stability studies were carried out for 3 months and result indicates that the selected formulations (F<sub>4</sub> and F<sub>7</sub>) were stable.</p> S. Chandra, N. Senthil Kumar, S.

Beauty soap contain hundreds of chemicals and compounds that are toxic to our body. Some of these include skin irritants and even&nbsp;endocrine disruptors which&nbsp; interfere with the body’s hormonal system and potentially have developmental, reproductive, neurological, and immune adverse effects, According to the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences these chemicals are known to cause irritation to the skin and interfere with the normal functioning of reproductive and thyroid hormones, where as &nbsp;Kalon Lueur &nbsp;Soap, The &nbsp;Natural&nbsp; Hydrating, Moisturizing, Nourisning &amp; Cleansing soap is &nbsp;enriched with Aquaxyl &amp; Vitamin E TGPS<strong>. </strong>This Unique blend is simply nourishing and highly oxidizing in nature, Helps fight the free radicals (caused due to pollution and sun exposure), there by leaving the skin smooth and hydrated skin. 3d hydration Hydra concept in Kalon Lueur Soap offers circulation of water optimized throughout all layers of the skin, up to the surface. It moisturizes and restructures the skin barrier reinforced in 24 hours which limits the water loss thus Promotes softer, smoother skin in 28 days. This makes the skin more resistant and better equipped to combat external aggression.</p> <p><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p> Govind Shukla, C.

The swelling index, friability and in vitro drug release. F3 formulation was considered optimum based on good Bioadhesive strength and maximum similarity factor. The drug release from optimum batch followed zero order kinetics with non-Fickian diffusion. Drug and excipients compatibility study showed no interaction between drug and excipients. Stability study of optimized formulation showed that tablets were stable at accelerated environment condition. Thus, buccal adhesive tablet of Labetalol could be an alternative route to bypass hepatic first pass metabolism and to improve bioavailability of Labetalol.</p> Sayyed Wamique Aquil, H.

However, the extent of comorbidity in CKD across a range of concordant (shared pathophysiology and/or treatment) conditions and discordant (unrelated pathophysiology and/or different or contradictory treatment) conditions is not well documented. Kidney diseases are emerging non-communicable ailments in Saudi Arabia and rest of the world. Among top ten diseases in 2017 in Saudi Arabia, chronic kidney disease was the 4<sup>th</sup>&nbsp;common cause of most of the deaths in the kingdom.
