OBJECTIVES: This study aims to illustrate the applicability of combined mixture-process variable (MPV) design and modeling for optimization of nanovesicular systems. METHODS: The D-optimal experimental plan studied the influence of three mixture components (MCs) and two process variables (PVs) on lercanidipine transfersomes. The MCs were phosphatidylcholine (A), sodium glycocholate (B) and lercanidipine hydrochloride (C), while the PVs were glycerol amount in the hydration mixture (D) and sonication time (E)...

The aim of this study was to develop and optimize Trimetazidine dihydrochloride (TM) controlled porosity osmotic pump (CPOP) tablets of directly compressed cores. A 2(3) full factorial design was used to study the influence of three factors namely: PEG400 (10% and 25% based on coating polymer weight), coating level (10% and 20% of tablet core weight) and hole diameter (0 "no hole" and 1 mm). Other variables such as tablet cores, coating mixture of ethylcellulose (4%) and dibutylphthalate (2%) in 95% ethanol and pan coating conditions were kept constant...

Exposure of proximal tubular epithelial cells to high glucose contributes to the accumulation of tubulointerstitial and matrix proteins in diabetic nephropathy, but how this occurs is not well understood. We investigated the effect of the signaling molecule tuberin, which modulates the mammalian target of rapamycin pathway, on renal hypertrophy and fibronectin expression. We found that the kidney mass was significantly greater in partially tuberin-deficient (TSC2(+/-) ) diabetic rats than wild-type diabetic rats...

Apoptosis contributes to the development of diabetic nephropathy, but the mechanism by which high glucose (HG) induces apoptosis is not fully understood. Because the tuberin/mTOR pathway can modulate apoptosis, we studied the role of this pathway in apoptosis in type I diabetes and in cultured proximal tubular epithelial (PTE) cells exposed to HG. Compared with control rats, diabetic rats had more apoptotic cells in the kidney cortex. Induction of diabetes also increased phosphorylation of tuberin in association with mTOR activation (measured by p70S6K phosphorylation), inactivation of Bcl-2, increased cytosolic cytochrome c expression, activation of caspase 3, and cleavage of PARP; insulin treatment prevented these changes...

The tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) is caused by defects in one of two tumor suppressor genes, TSC-1 or TSC-2. The TSC-2 gene encodes tuberin, a protein involved in the pathogenesis of kidney tumors, both angiomyolipomas and renal cell carcinomas. We investigated a potential role for tuberin in regulating a key DNA repair pathway. Downregulation of tuberin in human renal epithelial cells using siRNA resulted in a marked decrease in the abundance of the 8-oxoG-DNA glycosylase (OGG1). Mouse embryonic fibroblasts deficient in tuberin (TSC2(-/-) and TSC2(+/-)) also had markedly decreased OGG1 mRNA and protein expression, as well as undetectable OGG1 activity accompanied by accumulation of 8-oxodG...
