Abstract

Hydrogels are basically three-dimensional crosslinked polymeric network structure which can be synthesized from natural or synthetic polymers or combination of these two. We have formulated the hydrogels containing Graphites and Borax from homeopathy origin for topical applications.

OBJECTIVE: Our literature reviews suggested that though in homeopathy, graphites & borax are often used for clinical management of skin diseases, microbial infections etc., but there are no available marketed topical formulations of the same. In our current project we formulated Graphites-Borax hydrogels for the treatment of microbial infections specially wound dressing in bed sores.

METHOD: Graphites-Borax hydrogels were prepared by crosslinking method using polymers and other excipients with Graphites and Borax powdered drugs.

RESULTS: Stable Graphites-Borax hydrogels were successfully prepared and evaluated for physico-chemical, antimicrobial properties. All the prepared batches gave desired expected results.

SUMMARY AND CONCLUSION: The present study was carried out to formulate Graphites-Borax hydrogels for wound dressing. A stable formulation with desired properties was prepared. The present project was a success in establishing the desired objectives.
