Nanocochleate is a novel lipid based drug delivery system offering systemic and oral delivery of various charged drug molecules. It is formed by negatively charged lipid bilayer. Nanocochleate can encapsulate drugs which are hydrophobic, positively charged, negatively charged and poor orally bioavailable. It is also very much beneficial for oral absorption for peptide drugs that possess a net positive charge. Nanocochleate is beneficial for molecules having binding sites inside the cell. The property that nanocochleates can facilitate cross membrane diffusion for charged and impermeable molecules finds wide application in drug delivery. Nanocochleate have been proven better than liposomes and more compatible with body environment. They differ from liposomes by its structure and compatibility to the body. Liposomes are lipid bilayer with aqueous inner environment and unlike liposomes nanocochleates are having charged lipid bilayer without aqueous environment and are multilayer lipid matrix i.e. Cochleate.

Various methods of its formulation, structure, merits demerits and wide range of application are described in this article.

In the present study pH sensitive hydrogel beads of prednisolone were prepared for intestine delivery system. The cross-linking reinforced chitosan- alginate complex beads were prepared by gelation of anionic sodium alginate, the primary polymer, with opposite charged counter ion to form beads which were further complexed with chitosan as a polyelectrolyte. The pH sensitive hydrogel beads were prepared by the unique ionotropic gelation method by applying 33 full factorial designs. In this present study, influence of various formulation parameters like drug: chitosan ration (1:0.5, 1:1, and 1:2), drug: sodium alginate ratio (1:1, 1:2, 1:3) and concentration of calcium chloride (3%, 4%, 5%) were studied. According to factorial design, total 27 batches were prepared and evaluated. The compatibility of drug with polymer was confirmed by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR). All the formulation were subjected to percentage yield, drug entrapment efficiency, drug content, particle size, swelling study (In phosphate buffer pH 1.2 as well as in phosphate buffer pH 7.4), and in vitro drug release study. The data was found in the range of 72.00 ± 0.8 % to 92.00 ± 0.7 %,16.49 ± 0.2 % to 70.00 ± 0.2 %, 4.70 ± 0.4 to 13.30 ± 0.5,102.36 ± 2.27 to 138.48 ± 2.25 μm, , in phosphate buffer pH 7.4 between 109.00 ± 0.9 to 168.00 ± 0.4 and 106.60±0.6 to 136.00±0.3 in  phosphate buffer pH 1.2. From the results, B8 formulation was optimized. The prepared beads were enteric coated with 10% Eudragit S 100.  The surface morphology was studied by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) revealed spherical in shape with rough surface. It was reported that there was no swelling in acidic pH but increased in basic pH resulting in increased release of the drug in intestine. Hence it could be concluded that the prepared chitosan-sodium alginate hydrogel beads were satisfactory delivered to the stimulated intestinal fluid, which can be confirmed by further in vivo study.

Raloxifene is a second genaration selective estrogen receptor modulator used to prevent osteoporosis in postmenopausal women. which is insoluble in water and half life is 27.7 hr. it has estrogen effect on bone and cholesterol metabolism but behaves as a complete estrogen antagonist on mammary gland and uterine tissue. raloxifene needs enhancement of solubility and dissolution rate to improve its oral bipavailability and therapeutic efficasy. among  the various approaches to enhance solubility and dissolution rate of poorly soluble drugs complexation with cyclodextrine is an effective and indutrially accepted technique. In the present  investigation complexation of raloxifene with β-CD was carried out by using various technique like physical blending method, kneading method, solvent evaporation method and co-precipitation method. From the various characterization studies like solubility determination, drug content determination, production yield & in vitro dissolution study, it was observed that there was a significant rise in the aqueous solubility and dissolution rate of the raloxifene from the β-cd incusion complex. from the result of statistical analysis, batch RLX-6 by kneading method was found to be optimised batch, because of the maximum enhancement in solubility and rate of dissolution.  Optimised batch was also studied for compatibility by FTIR studies, and also it was found to be stable for the period of 90 days as per the ICH guidelines.

One of the ways to market a new product is to change the old product. The rapid decline in consumption of the eggs over the last 50 year is one of the most challenging problems the industry is facing today. The high cholesterol content in eggs is a major contributing factor. This problem can be minimized by using designer eggs. This review article throws light on what a designer egg is all about and how it can be obtained, the advantages of designer egg over simple egg. Besides designer egg, this article also provides information about the specialty egg and fertile eggs. Designer eggs are those in which the content has been modified from standard egg. The content of the chicken egg can be changed in such a ways as to be more healthful. This designer egg is free from all negative factors and prepared by changing the diet of chicken or manipulating the immune system of laying chickens. Thus, Designer eggs are essentially an ideal food and vitamin supplemented product which offers the benefits like reduced cholesterol content, high unsaturated fatty acids, ideal omega-6 to omega-3 ratio, cardiac benefits, etc.
