OBJECTIVE To investigate the hepatoprotective potential of Solanum xanthocarpum (Solanaceae) (S. xanthocarpum) in experimental rats to validate its traditional claim. METHODS 50% ethanolic fruit extract of S. xanthocarpum (SXE, 100, 200 or 400 mg/kg body weight) was administered daily for 14 days in experimental animals. Liver injury was induced(More)
In the present study the methanol and chloroform extracts of the dried stem barks of “Calophyllum Inophyllum” were prepared and compared with Standard drug for their anti-bacterial and analgesic activities. The antibacterial activities were evaluated against number of different bacterial strains by detecting minimum inhibitory concentration and zone of(More)
Pulmonary angiography is considered the definite method of diagnosing pulmonary emboli. It is hypothesized that pulmonary cineangiography is superior to conventional pulmonary angiography for quantitation of pulmonary emboli. The present study was undertaken to test the hypothesis. Six patients with an age range from 27 to 70 years with documented pulmonary(More)
Thirty-two consecutive patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) were studied during the first seven days following AMI. The stroke volume was measured by impedance cardiography. The patients were divided into two groups: Group A (n = 22), with clinically uncomplicated myocardial infarction and Group B (n = 10) with evidence of congestive failure, but(More)
The objective of the study was to find out the ethanolic extract of the leaves of Scoparia dulcis Linn for antidiarrhoeal effects on Wister albino rats. The extract was evaluated for castor oil-induced diarrhoea and intestinal transit in rats by charcoal meal. S. dulcis Linn. Significantly (p<0.05) and dose-dependently reduced frequency of stooling in(More)
Seventeen consecutive patients with stable coronary artery disease with a previous history of myocardial infarction were studied for evaluation of the effect of physical training on exercise hemodynamics. The patients were divided into two groups: Group A (n = 10), the control group and Group B (n = 7), the rehabilitated group. Patients in Group B had(More)
The present research work was carried out to investigate the in vitro antioxidant activity of methanolic extracts of the whole plant of Glinus oppositifolius (MEGO) and leaves of Sesbania grandiflora (MESG). The therapeutic effects of tannins and flavonoids can be largely attributed to their antioxidant properties. The quantitative estimation of phenolic(More)
The aim of this study has been to investigate the possible hypoglycemic and hypolipidemic effect of methanolic extract of the plant Glinus oppositifolius. The methanolic extract of Glinus oppositifolius was tested for antihyperglycemic activity in glucose overloaded hyperglycemic rats and hypoglycemic activity in overnight fasted normal rats. The extract(More)
Background. Sesbania grandiflora has been traditionally used as antidiabetic, antioxidant, antipyretic, and expectorant and in the management of various ailments. Materials and Methods. The study evaluates the antidiabetic activity of methanolic extract of Sesbania grandiflora (MESG) in type 2 diabetic rats induced by low dose streptozotocine and high fat(More)
