ABSTRACT
Liposomes are most placed acquiring in pharma industries and very useful in the various drug delivery system used to target the drug to particular tissue. Because of structural similarity between lipid bilayer (two layer) and cell membrane, liposome can easily penetrate effectively deliver drug to such that a free drug would not easily penetrate. Liposomes can be also encapsulate in both hydrophilic and hydrophobic materials, and are utilized as drug carriers in drug delivery. This technology is very useful for the treatment of certain diseases. Now a day’s most of the researcher attraction and interest will increase for that technology i.e. Liposomes. Main object of this review this technology i.e. Liposomes very useful in certain disease and easily prepare and also give various advantages other than. Liposomes are highly biocompatible, with applications ranging from delivering enzymes, antibacterial, antiviral drugs, antiparasite drugs, transdermal transporters, fungicides, diagnostic tools and adjuvant for vaccines. This paper mainly focus on exclusively scalable techniques and also focus on strength, respectively, limitations in respect to industrial applicability and regulatory requirements concerning liposomal drug formulations based on FDA and EMEA documents.

ABSTRACT 
Cancer is a diseases characterized by out-of-control cell growth. There are various types of cancer, and is classified by the type of cell that is affected. Cancer harms the body when altered cells divide uncontrollably to form lumps or masses of tissue called tumors. The recent treatments include chemotherapy, radiotherapy and Surgery. But this treatment accomplished by several side effect like the destruction of bone marrow cell, alopecia etc. So there is a need for the new drug for treatment of cancer. Plant-derived chemical may act as anticancer in many studies. The Plant produces secondary metabolites which are being evaluated for the anticancer activities leading to the development of new drugs. So in this review we have study different plants which act as anticancer. And this will encourage further scientific study of traditionally used plants.

ABSTRACT
Tuberculosis is a hypersensitive granulomatous infectious disease caused by Mycobacterium Tuberculosis (M.TB).In India 40% people are affected by T.B. So need of knowledge about T.B.  and pathophysiology of T.B. to people or society. Pathophysiology means, when a human being or animal being suffering from a disease this is because deranged or change in function on that organ or human body.  Infection is caused by air- borne droplets of organisms person to person. The main object of this review is how to diagnose and how it is cure or treat. It is diagnosed by PPD, IGRA, Sputum studies, X-rays and Biopsies. Mostly antibiotics are preferred for the first treatment.

ABSTRACT:
The New Medical Device Regulations of European Union replace the E.U’s current Medical Device Directive (93/42/EEC) and the E.U’s Directive on Active Implantable Medical Devices (90/385/EEC) According to the draft document, NB’s would be placed under a strict regimen of super vision, although it remains unclear whether the intended sanctions could be implemented against the will of a Member State, should the need occur. The qualification requirements for auditing and reviewing NB staff are steeply increased. Greater emphasis will be placed on clinical data and the Clinical Evaluation. For implantable medical devices and Class III devices clinical investigations will be expected since equivalence will generally no longer be an acceptable approach, although some exceptions can be made. The proposed MDR attempts to make more transparent the periods for review by various parties for different activities. Implementation of Unique device identification helpful for the unambiguous identification of a specific device on the market.

ABSTRACT
Microbial biofilms are complex structures wherein the planktonic cells change their growth mode to the sessile form. This kind of growth is assisted by the formation of a matrix of extracellular polymeric substances (EPS) which encapsulates the bacterial cells within it and thus, provides an additional protection. These biofilms are highly resistant to high concentration of antibiotics and poses a great threat towards public health. These biofilms are even beyond the access of a normal human immune system and are involved in infections of teeth, lungs and many other diseases. There lies an immediate need to replace the extensive use of antibiotics with new emerging strategies. The review intends to provide an insight on the various perspectives of microbial biofilms including their formation, composition, mechanism of communication (Quorum sensing) and pathogenicity. Recent emerging strategies have also been discussed that can be considered for successful eradication or inhibition of biofilms and related infections.

ABSTRACT
Today the world has suffered to the Zika virus is a flavivirous related to yellow fever, dengue, West Nile and Japanese encephalis virus. Zika virus causes acute, serious illness which is often fatal if it is not treated. Its name comes from the Zika forest of Uganda. Zika is a mosquito born disease. Zika virus disease is caused by a virus transmitted primarily by Aedes mosquitoes. People with Zika virus disease can have symptoms including mild fever, skin rash, conjunctivitis, muscle and joint pain, malaise or headache. These symptoms normally last for 2-7 days. There is scientific consensus that Zika virus is a cause of microcephaly and Guillain-Barré syndrome. Links to other neurological complications are also being investigated. Neither an effective treatment nor a vaccine is available for Zika virus; therefore, the public health response primarily focuses on preventing infection, particularly in pregnant women. These article also covers from where the zika was firstly introduced or its history, its transmissions, causes, diagnosis, treatment and some current affairs.
