Antitumor and radiosensitizing effects of alcoholic root extract of W. somnifera and their modification by heat were studied in vivo on Sarcoma-180 grown on the dorsum of adult BALB/c mouse. Ashwagandha (AT) was injected (ip) at a dose of 500 mg/kg body wt for 10 consecutive days into mouse bearing tumor of 50 +/- 5 mm3, with or without a local treatment of(More)
Adult Swiss albino mice were inoculated intraperitoneally (i.p.) with 10 (6) Ehrlich ascites carcinoma cells. Twenty-four hours later they were given an i.p. injection of 10-60 mg/kg of withaferin A (WA), isolated from the roots of Withania somnifera. The tumor growth and tumor free animal survival were studied for up to 120 days. In another experiment 30(More)
The antitumor and radiosensitizing effects of withaferin A (WA), a steroidal lactone from Withania somnifera, was studied on Ehrlich ascites carcinoma in vivo. The acute LD50(14) for WA in Swiss mice was approximately 80 mg/kg. Twenty-four hours after i.p. inoculation of 10(6) tumor cells, WA was injected i.p. at different dose fractions (5 or 7.5 mg/kg x(More)
Withania somnifera is a medicinal plant used in the treatment of a variety of ailments in the Ayurvedic system. Alcoholic extract of the root of the plant was injected(ip) at daily doses of 200 to 1000 mg/kg body wt for 15 days starting from 24 hr after intradermal inoculation of 5 x 10(5) cells of S-180 in BALB/c mice. Solid tumor growth was monitored for(More)
In the present study, four novel dienone cyclopropoxy curcumin analogs 1a-4a were synthesized by nucleophillic substitution reaction with cyclopropyl bromide. The tumor inhibitory and anti-angiogenic effects of the synthetic compounds were studied on mouse Ehrlich ascites tumor (EAT) in vivo. The compounds 1a-4a increased the life span (% ILS) of EAT(More)
The ethanolic root extract of Plumbago rosea (Plumbaginaceae) was studied for acute toxicity in mice and subacute toxicity in rats. The 24 h LD50 values of the extract in mice were 239.88 mg and 1148.15 mg/kg b.wt. for intraperitoneal and oral routes, respectively. Oral administration of doses above 1250 mg/kg produced severe diarrhea. In subacute toxicity(More)
Tumor cell derived matrix metalloproteinases are a family of enzymes associated with the tumor invasion and metastasis. Extracellular matrix metalloproteinases inducer (EMMPRIN) stimulates synthesis of gelatinase A (MMP-2) in peritoneal fibroblasts. In the present study the role of MMP-2 and EMMPRIN in the progression of breast cancer has been investigated.(More)
A series of novel 1-benzhydryl-sulfonyl-piperazine derivatives 3(a-e) were synthesized by nucleophilic substitution reaction of 1-benzhydryl-piperazine with different sulfonyl chlorides and were characterized by 1H NMR, LC/MS, FTIR and elemental analysis. In the present study, the compounds 3(a-e) exhibited in vivo inhibition of Ehrlich ascites tumor (EAT)(More)
Tumor growth inhibitory and radiosensitizing effects of the alcoholic root extract of P. rosea was studied on experimental mouse tumors, S-180 solid tumor and Ehrlich ascites carcinoma in vivo. Intraperitoneal injection of 50 mg/kg of Plumbago extract (PE) for 10 days starting from 24 hr after intradermal inoculation of S-180 cells in BALB/c mice produced(More)
A series of curcumin pyrazole derivatives (3a–e) were synthesized. The chemical structures were determined by 1H and 13C NMR spectroscopic techniques and their purity was confirmed by LC–MS and melting point determination. The compounds were screened for anticancer effects on different cancer cell lines by MTT(More)
