ABSTRACT-
This century will see the arrival of lifestyle drugs to enhance the power of our minds. These ‘smart’ drugs, or nootropics, will be substances that increase the speed of our learning and the capacity of our memory. Nootropics are thought to work by altering the availability of the brain's supply of neurochemicals (neurotransmitters, enzymes, and hormones), by improving the brain's oxygen supply, or by stimulating nerve growth. Nootropics has proved to be a very successful pharmacological means of raising academic performance in children with attention deficit disorder and it is therefore regarded as a nootropic. Motivation and attention are aspects of cognition that vary particularly with wakefulness. Research into learning and memory is yielding a wide range of targets for drug companies in search of the perfect nootropic.

ABSTRACT:-
Tuberculosis (abbreviated TB for tubercle bacillus or Tuberculosis) is a common and often deadly infectious disease caused by mycobacteria. In humans, Mycobacterium tuberculosis is the primary causative bacterium although other mycobacteria such as Mycobacterium bovis, Mycobacterium africanum, Mycobacterium canetti, and Mycobacterium microti are also causes. Tuberculosis usually attacks the lungs (as pulmonary TB) but can also affect the central nervous system, the lymphatic system, the circulatory system, the genitourinary system, the gastrointestinal system, bones, joints, and even the skin.

Abstract
Clopidogrel bisulfate is an inhibitor of adenosine diphosphate (ADP)-induced platelet aggregation acting by direct inhibition of ADP binding to its receptor and of the subsequent ADP-mediated activation of the glycoprotein GPIIb/IIIa complex. Objective of the present study is to develop a simple, sensitive, accurate, precise and rapid derivative spectrophotometric method for the estimation of clopidogrel in pure form. For the estimation of clopidogrel, solvent system employed was 0.1 N HCl and wavelength of detection (λdet) was 284.3 nm for fourth order derivative spectroscopy. The linearity was obtained in the range 42 – 336 µg/ml. The limit of detection is 6.7 µg/ml and limit of quantification was fund to be 20.4 µg/ml. Obtained results showed that there is minimum intra day and inter day variation. The developed method was validated and recovery studies were also carried out. Sample recovery using the above method was in good agreement with their respective labeled claim, thus suggesting the validity of the method and non-interference of formulation excipients in the estimation. Fourth order derivative spectroscopic method is simple, rapid and reproducible and further it can be used for the analysis.

Abstract:
A simple, rapid and precise and accurate RP-HPLC method was developed for the estimation of candesartan. The method involves a simple technique using Irbesartan as internal standard. HPLC separation was achieved using C18 Intersil column (256 x 4.6 id) with an isocratic mobile phase composed of selected methanol: 10 mM Phosphate buffer [75:25 % v/v. pH 3.0] at a flow rate of 1.0 mL/min with UV detection was performed at 256 nm. The retention time of candesartan and internal standard was found to be 1.96 and 3.33 min respectively. The assay was validated for the parameters like accuracy, precision, robustness and system suitability parameters. The method was validated over a linear test concentration range of 80 - 120%. The recovery of the method was in between 99.0 - 101.0%. The proposed method was found to be accurate, precise, selective and rapid and it can be useful in the routine analysis for the determination of candesartan cilexetil in pharmaceutical dosage form.

Abstract:
The IUPAC Name of Salmeterol is (RS)-2-(hydroxymethyl)-4-{1-hydroxy-2-[6-(4-phenylbutoxy) hexylamino]ethyl}phenol. Salmeterol is a prescription drug that is used for treating airway spasms in people with asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). By relaxing the muscles around the airways to allow more air into and out of the lungs, the medication can help prevent asthma attacks from occurring.Salmeterol comes in the form of an inhalation powder and is generally used twice a day. Present research work deals with UV spectrophotometric method for the estimation of salmeterol in pure form. For the estimation of salmeterol, solvent system employed was ethanol and wavelength of detection (λdet) was 252 nm. The linearity was obtained in the range 6 – 14 µg/ml, with a regression coefficient, R2= 0.999. The LOD & LOQ were found to be 4.99 µg/ml and 14.24 µg/ml respectively. Obtained results showed that there is minimum intra day and inter day variation. The developed method was validated and recovery studies were also carried out. Sample recovery using the above method was in good agreement with their respective labeled claims, thus suggesting the validity of the method and non-interference of formulation excipients in the estimation.
