Electrochemical monitoring of piroxicam in different pharmaceutical forms with multi-walled carbon nanotubes paste electrode

Journal of Pharmaceutical and Biomedical Analysis
Abdolkarim Abbaspour, Roya Mirzajani


The electrochemical behavior of piroxicam on a multi-walled carbon nanotubes electrode for the first time was investigated. A highly sensitive and fast responding sensor for determination of piroxicam was simply and conveniently fabricated. The constructed electrode exhibits efficiently catalytic activity for the electrooxidation of piroxicam at a reduced over potential with high sensitivity, stability, and long lifetime in the wide concentration rang of piroxicam. The oxidation process was found to be dependent on the pH of the supporting electrolyte. The behavior is further exploited as a sensitive detection method for piroxicam determination by differential pulse voltammetry. Under the optimized conditions the calibration plots are linear in the concentration range of 0.15-5 microg ml(-1). Application of the method for the determination of the drug in the dosage form (Feledene capsules and tablets and also piroxicam gel), without any interference, from the excipients, resulted in acceptable deviation from the stated concentrations. Recoveries were obtained in the range 96.35-104.16%. The detection limit of 0.1 microg ml(-1) was obtained for piroxicam determination.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule.
