Matters of the introduction into the State Pharmacopoeia of Ukraine of national monograph «Corn silk»

The expediency of standardizing of domestic medicinal
plant material corn silk was shown. A comparative analysis of  approaches to the standardization of the quality of corn silk listed in the State Pharmacopoeia of the USSR XI edition (the SPh XI), the State Pharmacopoeia of the Republic of Belarus (SPh RB), in the French Pharmacopoeia (Ph. Fr.) and British Homeopathic Pharmacopeia (BHP). The quality of 8 samples of raw materials was studied for compliance the requirements of the SPh XI, GF RB, Ph. Fr. and BHP. For the identification of raw materials by TLC method the techniques, harmonized with the requirements of the European Pharmacopoeia (EP), were developed. The techniques are used for identification of phytosterols and flavonoids with available reference substance in corn silk. The method of quantity determination of phenolic compounds (flavonoids) in corn silk was proposed. The method is based on standardized EP/SPhU techniques. The project of national monograph «Corn silk» was developed.

To the question of the macroscopic identification of herbal drug Bidens tripartita

Macroscopic diagnostic features of bur-marigold grass (Bidens tripartita) in comparison with the characteristics of other closely related species has been studied. It has revealed that very often a impurity of pharmaceutical species is B. frondosa and sometimes B. cernua. For the purpose of a reliable comparison of external signs of these types the search of the herbarium of the specified types with the help of leading organizations of Ukraine were made as well as search for them in nature. It was found that in addition to macroscopic signs of stems, leaves, and flowers, especially the morphological structure of the achenes is a reliable key to the identification and diagnostic of B. tripartita and other not pharmacopoeia species of bur-marigold. As a result of the critical analysis of macroscopic samples of B. tripartita and other species of this genus the draft sections «Identification. Macroscopia» and «Impurities» of the
national monograph «Bur-marigold grassN» for its introduction in the State Pharmacopoeia of Ukraine were developed. The proposed macroscopic characteristics of bur-marigold species of the Ukraine flora are important for the diagnostic of B. tripartita, especially during its preparation and implementation in the pharmaceutical market of Ukraine.

Keywords: bur-marigold, herbal drugs, identification, diagnostics, achene, awn.

Determining the optimal extent and concentration of cell susspension fungi Candida albicans and Candida tropicalis ultrasonic disintegration
In recent years, recorded a significant development of this infection to disease around the world, due to irrational use of medicines, weakening immunity, deteriorating environment and increased pathogenicity of most pathogens. At the National University of Pharmacy plans to develop a combination vaccine for the prevention and treatment of this infection from fungi cell antigens Candida albicans and Candida tropicalis. Aim of the study was to determine the optimal concentration and volume of cell suspension fungi C. albicans and C. tropicalis. To determine the optimal concentration of cells used fungi for the disintegration of the following concentrations: 8×106-8×107, 8×108-8×10and 8×1010-8×1011 in 1 mL. To determine the optimal volume of cell suspension fungi C. albicans and C. tropicalis investigated following volume of 10 mL, 20 mL and 30 mL. Using a smaller volume of 10 mL technologically impossible to fulfill. After ultrasonic disintegration in each case carried rotation speed centrifugation at 1000 rev/min for 5 minutes and determined the content of proteins and polysaccharides in compliance with the State Pharmacopoeia of Ukraine. Results of the study of antigen solutions obtained show that the action of ultrasound on cells of fungi C. albicans and C. tropicalis with a concentration in 1 mL 8×106-8×10released the least amount of these substances. But the action of ultrasound on cells of fungi and 8×108-8×10and 8×1010-8×1011 concentration in 1 mL of polysaccharides and protein content was greater. Fungi cell suspensions C. albicans and C. tropicalis volume of
20 mL and 30 mL is unpromising as in these cases, the ultrasonic disintegration was received significantly less of these substances than using a cell suspension volume of 10 mL fungi. As a result of the research was reasonably optimal concentration of cell suspension fungi C. albicans and C. tropicalis, which is 8×108-8×10in 1 mL and was determined optimum volume — 10 mL.
Keywords: candidiasis, proteins, polysaccharides, antigen, technology, concentration, ultrasound.

Pharmacological action of metfonorm in model of type 2 diabetes in aged rats
Diabetes mellitus is one of the most common high-cost chronic diseases, which is a serious medical and social and economic health problem all over the world — both industrialized and developing countries. Metformin is one of widely used antidiabetic drugs. Since 2007, metformin is exclusive drug for the drug prevention of type 2 diabetes at the recommendation of American diabetes association (ADA). Metformin is particularly reasonable in the early stages of the disease because the drug does not stimulate insulin secretion and therefore treatment is not accompanied by the risk of hypoglycemic states. The aim of this work is comparative study of the specific pharmacological activity of the domestic drug «Metfonorm», tablets 0.5 g, comparably «Dianormet 500», tablets 0.5 g («Polfa», Poland), in model of type 2 diabetes in aged rats. It has established that domestic drug «Metfonorm», tab- lets 0.5 g, in dexamethasone diabetes in aged rats has a pronounced hypoglycemic effect, which manifests in reducing hyperglycemia in glucose loading. Long-term administration of domestic drug «Metfonorm», tablets 0.5 g, in dexamethasone diabetes in aged rats causes a reduction of baseline glucose level and a normalization of glycemic curves, which correspond to the nature of those of the young animals. Hypoglycemic activity of domestic drug «Metfonorm», tablets 0.5 g, is identical to the active of referential drug — «Dianormet 500», tablets 0.5 g («Polfa»).

Keywords: «Dianormet 500», «Metfonorm», type 2 diabetes, dexamethasone diabetes, glycemic curve.

Customer loyalty to the company: the basic concepts and methods of evaluation
The definition of customer loyalty to the pharmaceutical company has been proposed. Segments according to degree of loyalty by the example of the retail pharmaceutical enterprises (pharmacies) have been presented. The analysis of approaches to the definition of loyalty to the company has been carried out. Investigated, in accordance with the key components of loyalty there are behavioral loyalty, attitude (intentions) loyalty, and comprehensive loyalty. It was established that for assessing customer loyalty to the company methods that take into account certain aspects of loyalty (behavioral, attitude, intention) depending on the selected priority and techniques that reflect several components are used. Determined that the complex methods are most reasonable. The analysis of the application of customer loyalty evaluation methods has been carried out. It was established that the method of Net Promoter Score and Marketing scaling method can be used for evaluation of loyalty to the company and to the brand. RFM-analysis, method «Servqual», «Servloyal», «Ipsos Loyalty C3», Secure Customer Index are primarily used for assessing customer loyalty to the company. Methods «Division of needs», «Share of benefits and share of rejection», Brand Keys Customer Loyalty Engagement Index, a method based on the traditional approach, «Conversion Model» and RAPID model are used primarily for evaluation of customer loyalty to the brand. Net Promoter Score (NPS) and method of marketing scaling are most popular among methods of evaluation of customer loyalty to the company that reflect separate components of loyalty. Method «Servqual» prevails among the comprehensive methods of evaluation clients’ loyalty to the company.
