Ahmed A. Albadri , Marwan I Jihad , Zainab A. Radhi
Crystallization is a promising approach in enhancing drug solubility and dissolution. The objective of this study was to prepare and evaluate tenoxicam co-crystals with paracetamol as a co-former. Co-crystals of tenoxicam-paracetamol were prepared by solvent evaporation technique and grinding method; three ratios of the drug to conformer were used (1:1, 1:2, and 1:4). The tenoxicam-paracetamol co-crystal was characterized by determining the melting point Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, powder X-ray diffraction, and Scanning electron microscopy. The co-crystals were evaluated for the drug solubility and dissolution, the content of tenoxicam within the co-crystals was also determined. The formula with the ratio (1:2) tenoxicam to paracetamol that was prepared by solvent evaporation technique had a different melting point than that of the pure drug and of the conformer, the Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy analysis indicated the formation of hydrogen bond and the powder X-ray diffraction pattern of the co-crystal showed a unique Powder X-ray diffraction pattern distinguishable from that of tenoxicam and paracetamol. The formula with the ratio (1:2) tenoxicam to paracetamol that was prepared by solvent evaporation technique showed the best enhancement in drug solubility and dissolution compared to the other formulae. In conclusion, solvent evaporation technique and the ratio of (1:2) tenoxicam to paracetamol are more efficient in enhancing drug solubility and dissolution than the grinding method and other ratios used, respectively.

Areej W. Alhagiesa Mowafaq M. Ghareeb
Nimodipine (NMD) is a Dihydropyridine calcium channel blocker with some selectivity to the cerebral vasculature administered to minimize the neural deficit for patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage. The NMD is characterized by low bioavailability because of its low water solubility and extensive first-pass metabolism. This research aims to improve bioavailability by enhancing the solubility via the formulation of nanoparticles (NPs) and decreasing the first-pass metabolism by incorporation the prepared NMD NPs in Orodispersible Tablets (ODTs). The preparation of NMDNPs was done by solvent antisolvent precipitation technique using three different stabilizers ( TPGS, Soluplus®, and PXM 407 ) in two drugs: stabilizer ratios (1:2 and 1:3) and two different injection speed (30 and 60 mL/hr) of the solvent to the antisolvent phase. The optimized formula is composed of 30 mg NMD, 60 mg Soluplus® and 1% w/w mannitol as cryoprotectant. The degree of crystallinity of pure NMD and NMD NPs was examined by X-ray diffraction. It was established that the degree of crystallinity had been reduced, which is an indication of converting the crystalline NMD into a more amorphous form. ODTs incorporating NMD NPs show a complete dissolution after forty minutes in SSF with 0.5 % Brij-35 compared with ODT incorporating pure NMD, which reaches only 50% in the same duration. It is concluded that formulation NMD as NPs to be incorporated in ODT is an excellent technique to enhance the dissolution rate and promoting pre-gastric absorption.

20. Normal Vaginal Delivery Versus Caesarean Section: A Comparative Study in Al-Nasiriya city, South of Iraq
Firas Fadhil Alyaseen, Suad Rodan Shwielf
The term pregnancy, which is also known as gestation or gravidity, refers to the duration in which an embryo carries and develops within the woman’s body, and precisely, in her womb (uterus). However, it is called multiple pregnancies when more than one fetus involves. Pregnancy can be existed either by sexual connection or with the help of reproductive technology. Ordinarily, it endures around 40 weeks, or over 9 months, as determined from the last monthly period till delivery. On the other hand, the embryo can be defined as an evolving offspring over the first eight weeks post-conception; after that, it can be called a fetus till childbirth. The popular signs and symptoms of pregnancy might involve each of the missed period, inflated breasts, nausea with or without vomiting, repeated urination, and tiredness. A pregnancy test can be utilized for confirmation. The current study aimed to discuss the maternal medical outcomes after both: Caesarean section and natural vaginal childbirth. Results have shown that when the cases with cesarean and the normal delivery was compared in term of the adverse effects and the complications we find that there are no significant differences in term of normal blood loss while when the bleeding during and after delivery was investigated, we found the rate of it was significantly more in cesarean than in normal delivery, also fever was significantly higher in females who delivered in cesarean than who delivered with normal vaginal delivery. In conclusion, the incidence rate of cesarean section deliveries was increased compared to normal vaginal deliveries, so the complications and adverse effects that may be associated with the cesarean section need to be investigated and compared to what happens with normal vaginal delivery.
