To investigate Traditional medicinal plants used to treat ectoparasites in ruminant animals’ Semi-structured interview, observation and field guided walks were used with ruminant livestock owner, local and traditional healers who had willing to share their indigenous kno...
The study was carried out to assess the analgesic, anti-inflammatory, CNS depressant and anti-diarrhoeal activity of methanolic extract of Nephelium lappaceum L. seeds (MNLS). Analgesic activity was evaluated using acetic acid-induced writhing and formalin-induced licking paw test in mice. Anti-inflammatory effect was studied using the carrageenan-induced inflammatory method. Hole cross and open f...
In the few decades, there has been exponentially growth in the field of herbal medicines. Most of the traditional system of medicine is effective but they lack standardization. So there is a need to develop a standardization technique. Standardization of herbal formulation is essential in order to assess the quality, purity, safety and efficacy of the drug based on their concentration of their pri...
Field pea is the third most important grain legume globally after beans and chickpea. The present study was conducted during the period 2012-2014 at the Institute of Forage crops, Bulgaria, with five pea genotypes. The conducted analyses revealed that the genetic correlations for most of the traits in field pea have higher coefficients than the phenotypic correlations. The strongest positive pheno...
The natural anthracene derivative emodin (1,3,8-trihydroxy-6-methylanthraquinone) is known as an anticancer agent. In the present work, it was isolated for the first time from the ethanol extract of Rumex confertus leaves, widely used in Armenia as a vegetable. It was purified in two-step low-pressure liquid chromatography – a significantly easier and inexpensive procedure compared with those us...
