ANTISECRETORY AND ANTIOXIDANT ACTIVITIES OF THE LEAVES AQUEOUS EXTRACT OF BOCSIA ANGUSTIFOLIA (CAPPARACEAE) ON GASTRIC ULCERS IN WISTAR RATS
The aim of this study was to evaluate antisecretory and antioxidant activities of the leaves aqueous extract of Boscia angustifolia (LAEBA) on gastric ulcers induced in male rats. LAEBA at the doses of 125, 250, and 500 mg/kg were tested on three models of gastric ulcers, namely: pylorus ligation, pylorus ligation + histamine, and pylorus ligation + carbamylcholine. Some parameters of oxidative st...
Cervical cancer is a highly prevalent global disease among females and currently available treatments are nevertheless restricted and have substantial adverse effects. Plants may be a rich source of molecules with therapeutic potentials, such as Campomanesia aureas O. Berg, Myrtaceae, a native species from the South of Brazil with few data regarding its biological effects. In this study, we invest...
Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate the anticancer activity of a series of six structurally related [1, 4]-Benzoquinone monooximes and to investigate structure-activity relationships (SAR) of these compounds. Materials and Method: The mono-oximes obtained by oximination of para-benzoquinones 1-4 had their structures confirmed by ¹H NMR, 13C NMR. The cytotoxic study was assessed by th...
