Screening of Indian plants for biological activity: I.
In vitro and in vivo wound healing activity of asiaticoside isolated from Centella asiatica.
Asiaticoside‐induced elevation of antioxidant levels in healing wounds
It appears from the present study that asiaticosides enhanced induction of antioxidant levels at an initial stage of healing which may be an important contributory factor in the healing properties of this substance.
Antihepatotoxic properties of picroliv: an active fraction from rhizomes of Picrorhiza kurrooa.

Hepatoprotective activity of kutkin--the iridoid glycoside mixture of Picrorhiza kurrooa.
Picroliv affords protection against thioacetamide-induced hepatic damage in rats.
Picroliv, a standardised glycoside fraction of Picrorhiza kurroa, in doses of 12.5 and 25 mg/kg prevented most of the biochemical changes induced by thioacetamide in liver and serum and was comparable with that of silymarin, a known hepatoprotective agent obtained from seeds of Silybum marianum.

Oral administration of Picroliv (12 mg/kg/day for 7 days), a standardised iridoid glycoside fraction of Picrorhiza kurroa, significantly prevented the biochemical changes in liver and serum of galactosamine-toxicated rats.
