IN-VIVO AND IN-VIRO MAST CELL STABLIZING ACTIVITY OF ETHYL ACETATE AND METHANOL EXTARCT OF TERMINALIA CHEBULA FRUITS: A THERAPEUTIC APPROACH FOR ASTHMA
The present investigation deals with the in-vivo and in-vitro mast cell stabilizing the activity of fruits of Terminalia chebula ethyl acetate and methanol extracts at 500 mg/kg body weight. In egg albumin induced degranulation studies, Kitotifen as a standard was found to inhibit degranulation to an extent of 80.12%, where as ethyl acetate and methanolic extracts inhibited degranulation to 58.98%...

To evaluate the possible antifertility effect of 50% ethanolic extract of C. bonducella seeds in male rats. Adult, healthy, male Wistar rats were randomly selected and divided into three groups each having 7 rats. Group, I rats were treated with vehicle only and served as control. While group II and Group III rats were orally treated with C. bonducella extract at 200 mg and 400 mg/kg body weight/d...
About 4 extracts (hexane, acetone, ethanol, and methanol extraction) from the seeds of Centratherum anthelminticum was extracted. Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectroscopy characterized ethanol extract. Seven constituents from 9 peaks were identified. 2-Oxo-pentanoic acid and hexadecanoic acid are as the major constituents, and the minor constituents like Henicosanoic acid, 26-Phenoxy-hexacosanoic me...
