Abstract

Radiation Sterilisation Of Henna And Its Ointment

Author(s): Supriya Shidhaye, Avanti Damle

The feasibility of sterilisation of Henna and its ointment by gamma radiation is investigated. The drug and its ointment were irradiated at graded doses of 5-25 kGy and monitored for changes, if any, in physicochemical characteristics and safety of ointment. Microbiological studies were carried out to determine the minimum decontamination dose and sterility dose. Henna and its ointment were found to be sterile at 20 kGy dose. Studies did not reveal any untoward changes in the irradiated products upto 25kGy dose of gamma radiation.
