ABSTRACT :
Standardization of polyherbal formulation is important to validate the quality of drugs and to ensure that the consumers are getting medication which guarantees purity, safety, potency and efficacy. The present paper reports standardization of traditional ayurvedic liquid polyherbal antidiabetic formulation (Sucrogen) and diabetes survey for retrieving the information on medication along with the lifestyle of diabetic population. Sucrogen was standardized based on ayurvedic pharmacopeia physico-chemical properties, preliminary phytochemical tests, organoleptic characters, stability studies, microbial studies, TLC, HPLC, heavy metal estimation by AAS and flame photometry to fix the quality standard of this drug. Invitro anti-diabetics activity of the drug was determined using alpha amylase Inhibitory method.These studies resulted in a set of diagnostic characters essential for its standardization. The phytochemical constituents found to be present in raw materials used for the preparation of Sucrogen possibly helps in achieving the desirable therapeutic efficacy of the ayurvedic formulation.
OBJECTIVE
To do a general survey on diabetes and to standardize the polyherbal formulation consumed by the population of Jharkhand for the determination of purity and quality of drug

Abstract
Antibiotics are chemical substances, either produced naturally by microorganisms or manufactured synthetically, that are lethal to other microorganisms. Antibiotic resistance (AR) describes the ability of a microorganism to be unaffected by (or resistant to) the effects of a particular antibiotic. A problem arises when a animal or person becomes infected with a disease-causing bacterium that harbors antibiotic resistance to the drug that would be the most suitable treatment for that infection.

India is a vast country of immense diversity.and for that the effectiveness of the antimicrobial was not same to all ,and the administration of them will either really cure or may act in opposite manner and will leads to the development os the antimicrobial resistance which is only due to the unaware use of the antibiotics.we had conducted the survey on some prescriptions of registered medicinal practitioner and find that there was an irrational use of antibiotic in our on community and this might be very serious as our survey is on the smallest level and what it may cause globally.So the use of antibiotic should be controlled.

Abstract:
The usage of solvents in active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) and coating plants are very common in pharmaceutical industry. The organic solvents are mostly used in washing of product, cleaning of equipments and the reaction media for separation and purification. The cost reduction of the API products can be reduced by the distillation of mother liquor after establishing of yield in R &D, pilot plant and then in the commercial plant, the next process step is validation, done with fresh solvent of three consecutive batches and then done with three consecutive batches of recovered solvents from mother liquor. The product cost is mainly reduced by the distillation of product mother liquor or to do more research to reduce the quantity of solvent or manufacturing process without solvent.

Crystallization has the vital role in the pharmaceutical industry as it is started from intermediates separation process and the final manufacture step as active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs).
Crystallization is a key component of almost all processes in the manufacturing of pharmaceuticals. Whether for purification of intermediates, formation of the product, or prevention of crystallization in amorphous products, crystallization is essential in both processing and development.

Crystallization can be natural or artificial process of formation of solid crystalsprecipitating from a solutionmelts or more rarely deposited directly from a gas.
