Picroliv showed a dose (3-12 mg/kg, po for 7 days) dependent choleretic activity as evidenced by increase in bile flow and its contents (bile salts and bile acids). Significant anticholestatic activity was also observed against carbon tetrachloride induced cholestasis in conscious rat, anaesthetized guinea pig and cat. Picroliv was more active than the(More)
Ursolic acid is the active material isolated from the leaves of the Eucalyptus hybrid E. tereticornis. In the present study, it has shown a significant preventive effect in vitro against ethanol-induced toxicity in isolated rat hepatocytes. Compared with the incubation of isolated hepatocytes with ethanol only, the simultaneous presence of ursolic acid in(More)
Picroliv, the active constituent of P. kurrooa, showed a dose dependent (1.5-12 mg/kg, po for 7 days) hepatoprotective activity against oxytetracycline induced hepatic damage in rat. It increased the number of viable hepatocytes (ex-vivo) significantly. Increase in bile volume and its contents in conscious rat suggests potent anticholestatic property.(More)
Picroliv, the standardized active principle from the plant Picrorhiza kurrooa showed significant curative activity in vitro in primary cultured rat hepatocytes against toxicity induced by thioacetamide (200 microg/mL), galactosamine (400 microg/mL), and carbon tetrachloride (3 microl/mL). Activity was assessed by determining the change in hepatocyte(More)
Picroliv, the active constituent isolated from the plant Picrorhiza kurroa, was evaluated as a hepatoprotective agent against ethanol-induced hepatic injury in rats. Alcohol feeding (3.75 g/kg x45 days) produced 20-114% alteration in selected serum (AST, ALT and ALP) and liver markers (lipid, glycogen and protein). Further, it reduced the viability (44-48%)(More)
AIM OF THE STUDY Fraxinus excelsior L. (Family: Oleaceae) seeds are consumed as a food, condiment, and folk medicine. The seeds are traditionally used as a potent hypoglycemic agent, but no clinical evidence exists in as to this regard. We assessed the clinical efficacy and safety of the seed extract (FraxiPure, Naturex), containing 6.8% of nuzhenide and(More)
A study to compare two feeding systems, stall feeding (SF) and grazing plus supplementation (GR) was carried out, based on intake, performance and rumen fermentation characteristics of lambs. While SF animals received ad libitum complete feed blocks (CFB), GR animals were allowed grazing for 8 h on a pasture and supplemented with concentrate mixture at 250(More)
The effect of inclusion of tree leaves in mustard (Brassica campestris) straw (MS) based complete feed blocks (CFB) on nutrient utilization and rumen fermentation was studied in adult male sheep. Four types of CFB diets (Roughage:Concentrate:Molasses, 70:25:5) were prepared. The compaction process increased bulk density (g/cm(3)) of MSB, MSNL, MSSL and MSAL(More)
