Eugenia jambolana Lam., commonly known as black plum or “jamun” is an important medicinal plant in various traditional systems of medicine. It is effective in the treatment of diabetes mellitus, inflammation, ulcers and diarrhea and preclinical studies have also shown it to possess chemopreventive, radioprotective and antineoplastic properties. The plant is rich in compounds containing anthocy...
INVESTIGATION ON NOVEL ROLE OF SOLANUM XANTHOCARPUM AND JUNIPERUS COMMUNIS EXTRACT AGAINST CCl4 INDUCED LIVER INJURY
Background: There are very less therapeutic and reliable liver protective drugs in modern medicine to prevent and treat liver injury caused due to drugs. Traditionally Solanum xanthocarpum Schradt. (SX) and Wendl. and Juniperus communis Linn. (JC) have been used since long for their hepatoprotective effect. The current study was carried out to explore the hepatoprotective role of SX and JC against...
PROTECTIVE EFFECTS OF ETHANOLIC LEAF EXTRACTS OF CORCHORUS FASCICULARIS IN PHENYLHYDRAZINE INDUCED ANEMIC RATS
The aim of the present study is to evaluate the anti anemic activity of ethanolic leaf extract of Corchorus fascicularis against phenylhydrazine induced hemolytic anemia in rats. Phenylhydrazine (40mg/kg) was administered intraperitoneally for 2 days to induce anemia in rats. The animals were divided in to five groups of 6 animals each. Group I served as normal control, group II as anemic control,...
EVALUATION OF ANTIOXIDANT, ANTI-INFLAMMATION AND CHEMICAL COMPOSITION OF METHANOLIC EXTRACT OF AMOMUM MASTICATORIUM THWAITES (ZINGIBERACEAE)
The anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activities of the methanol extract of Amomum masticatorium rhizome were observed in various experimental models. Phytochemical constituents like phenols and flavonoids were also estimated. The antioxidant activity was evaluated by DPPH and super oxide radical scavenging assays. The extract showed significant antioxidant activity. The in vitro anti-inflammatory...
EVALAUTION OF ANTHELMINTIC ACTIVITY OF RICINUS COMMUNIS LINN. LEAVES BY USING DIFFERENT TYPES OF SOLVENT
Aqueous and ethanol ethyl actatate chloroform methanol extracts from the leaves of Ricinus communis were investigated for their anthelmintic activity against Pheretima posthuma and and three concentrations (50, 75 and 100mg/ml) of each extract were studied for activity, in which paralysis and death time of the worm. Both the extract exhibited remarkable anthelminthic activity at all three concentr...
The extracts of two different plant were screened for their phenols, flavonoid and antioxidant activity by DPPH method for two locations. In this study seed oil and defatted seed cake extracts of M. azedarach and P. pinnata from two locations indicate high phenolics (13.5-51.2 mgGAE/g) and flavonoids content (1.5-4.2 mgCAE/g). The IC50 value was (0.032-0.048 mg/ml)....
