1. UV Spectrophotometric Estimation of Satranidazole in Periodontal Gels
Kailash Bansal, Sanjay Singh
A simple, precise and economical UV method has been developed for the estimation of Satranidazole in periodontal gels. Satranidazole has the absorbance maxima at 319 nm in McIlvaine buffer pH 6.6.Beer’s law was obeyed in the range 1– 40μg/ml with correlation coefficient (n = 6) ≥ 0.9996.The proposed methods were successfully applied for the simultaneousdetermination of Satranidazolein gel dosage form. The developed method was validated for accuracy and precision. Percent recovery for Satranidazole was found in the range of 98.14 % to 100.68 %. A high percentage recovery indicates the high accuracy of the method. This method has the advantage of quicker turnaround time of sample analysis and less cost involved. It can act as an alternative for HPLC method for the routine use in quality control laboratories of pharmaceutical industry for estimation of Satranidazole.

Avinash Sharma, Pramod Kumar , Pankaj Sharma, Birendra Shrivastav
“Nutraceuticals” are the combination of Nutrition and pharmaceutical. The term Nutraceutical was given by Dr. Stephen in 1989. A dietary supplement is a product taken by mouth that contains a dietary ingredient (Vitamins, Minerals, Herbs, Amino acids etc.) Numerous definitions and nomenclature for dietary supplements exist worldwide. In India Food Safety and Standards authority (FSSA), defines Nutraceuticals as “foods for special dietary uses or functional foods or health supplements”. In Canada Nutraceuticals are known as Natural health Products. In Australia, traditional, herbal, natural and alternative medicines and remedies are referred to as ‘complementary medicines’. Every country has their own guidelines, regulatory requirements which deal with regulatory registration procedures of Nutraceuticals. In order to enter the Indian nutraceutical market, some of the very important areas of focus include product evaluation, actual product analysis, procuring licenses and developing India specific health and label claims. In Canada Product licensing, Site licensing, GMP, Adverse drug reporting, Clinical trials & Health claims. And in Australia Product licensing, GMP, Site licensing, Labelling & Helath claims are required.

3. Certification Schemes and Marks: A New Mandate for Quality Assurance of Food and Drugs
Basatiya Bakul, Nanda Sanju
Quality products are the demand of the day and the consumers have become more aware about their health and health related products. To develop a high degree of confidence about the safety and efficacy of medicines and food, specially packaged or processed food available in the market, various certifying agencies are involved. They issue quality “certificates”, “marks”, “logos” or “symbols” to the product after evaluating certain quality parameters developed and validated by them. Presently, one can see many certification schemes existing for drugs like “Product Certification Scheme” by Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS), “Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) Certification Scheme” by World Health Organization (WHO), “Premium Mark” and “Standard Mark” by Department of Ayurveda, Yoga and Naturopathy, Unani, Sidha and Homeopathy, and “Fruits Product Order (FPO) Mark” and “Organic certifications” for food products. This paper shall discuss various certification schemes and marks for food and drugs across the globe and their role in assuring quality
