PURPOSE The aim of present in vitro studies was performed to examine the antioxidant and anticancer activities of ethanol and aqueous extracts of Drosera indica L. METHODS Different concentrations (5 - 640mcg/ml) of the ethanol (EEDI) and aqueous (AEDI) extracts of D.indica L were used in various antioxidant assay methods such as hydroxyl radicals, DPPH,(More)
Aim of the study: To evaluate the antioxidant property of Smilax zeylanica L. using CCl4 hepatotoxicity in rats. Materials and methods: Hepatotoxicity was induced in Wistar albino rats by administration of CCl4 (0.5ml/kg/day p.o. for 7days). Methanol extract of S. zeylanica roots and rhizomes (SZRM) was administered to the experimental animals at doses(More)
Capparis sepiaria L. known as Himsra is an important drug in Ayurveda. In this study extracts of the root of C. sepiaria were evaluated for their hepatoprotective potential on acetaminophen-induced hepatotoxicity in albino Wistar rats. The extent of hepatoprotection was evaluated by estimating the serum levels of hepatic transaminases (SGPT and SGOT),(More)
Objective: To evaluate the hepatoprotective potential of methanol extract of roots and rhizomes of Smilax zeylanica L on carbontetrachloride (CCl4) induced hepatotoxicity in Wistar albino rats. Methods: Hepatotoxicity was induced in Wistar albino rats of either sex by administration of CCl4 0.5 ml/kg p.o. once a day for 7 days. The methanol extract of roots(More)
Background/Aim: To determine the anti-hyperglycemic effect of Euphorbia antiquorum L. root. Materials and Methods: The study evaluates the anti-hyperglycemic effect of E. antiquorum root in streptozotocin-nicotinamide-induced Type 2 diabetes mellitus and fructose-induced insulin resistance models. Alcohol and aqueous extracts of E. antiquorum root were(More)
CONTEXT Smilax zeylanica L.(Smilacaceae) is a climbing shrub with woody prickly stems. OBJECTIVE This study evaluated the hepatoprotective effect of S. zeylanica against paracetamol induced hepatotoxicity in Wistar rats. MATERIALS AND METHODS The protective effects of the methanol extract (200 and 400 mg/kg) of root and rhizome of S. zeylanica were(More)

Alcohol and aqueous extracts of E. antiquorum root were(More)
The present study was to investigate the toxic impacts of aluminium chloride in locomotion and motor coordination in Wistar rats and to evaluate the protective effects of hydro alcoholic extract of fruit pulp of Hippophae salicifolia D. Don. (HAHS). Wistar Albino rats were assigned into four groups (n=6) and were administered respectively the vehicle,(More)
Alcohol extract from the leaves of Cassia alata and Typha angustifolia were investigated for their anthelmintic activity against Pheretima posthuma and Ascardia galli. Various concentrations (10-100 mg/ml) of each extract were tested in the bioassay, which involved determination of time of paralysis and time of death of the worms. Both the extracts(More)
The present investigation was aimed at evaluating the hepatoprotective potential of the methanol extract of leaf of Smilax zeylanica L. on Carbontetrachloride induced hepatotoxicity in Wistar rats. Hepatotoxicity was induced in Wistar rats by administration of CCl4 0.5 mL/kg p.o. once a day for 7d. Methanol extract of leaf of Smilax zeylanica (MELS) was(More)
