Annona muricata (Annonaceae): A Review of Its Traditional Uses, Isolated Acetogenins and Biological Activities
TLDR
Phytochemical studies reveal that annonaceous acetogenins are the major constituents of A. muricata, and indigenous communities in Africa and South America extensively use this plant in their folk medicine.
Gastroprotective activity and mechanism of novel dichlorido-zinc(II)-4-(2-(5-methoxybenzylideneamino)ethyl)piperazin-1-iumphenolate complex on ethanol-induced gastric ulceration.
TLDR
The findings suggest that the gastroprotective activity of ZnHMS might contribute in adjusting the inflammatory cytokine-mediated oxidative damage to the gastric mucosa.
In Vivo Antioxidant and Antiulcer Activity of Parkia speciosa Ethanolic Leaf Extract against Ethanol-Induced Gastric Ulcer in Rats
TLDR
Treatment with the extract led to the upregulation of heat-shock protein 70 (HSP70) and the downregulation of the pro-apoptotic protein BAX and significant increases in the levels of the antioxidant defense enzymes glutathione (GSH) and superoxide dismutase (SOD) in the gastric mucosal homogenate were observed, whereas that of a lipid peroxidation marker (MDA) was significantly decreased.
Acute Toxicity Evaluation, Antibacterial, Antioxidant and Immunomodulatory Effects of Melastoma malabathricum
TLDR
The results showed that the MM extract is safe even at a high dose of 5,000 mg/kg and has no oral toxicity, and suggest the excellent medicinal bioactivity of MM and explain the popularity of this plant in the folk medicine as a remedy for different illnesses.
Protective Role of Phyllanthus niruri Extract against Thioacetamide-Induced Liver Cirrhosis in Rat Model
TLDR
Progression of liver cirrhosis induced by TAA in rats can be intervened using the PN extract and these effects are comparable to those of silymarin.
β-Mangostin induces p53-dependent G2/M cell cycle arrest and apoptosis through ROS mediated mitochondrial pathway and NfkB suppression in MCF-7 cells
TLDR
The results demonstrated that the βM induced anti-proliferative effect, leading to G2/M phase cell cycle arrest and apoptosis through both the extrinsic and mitochondrial pathways with the involvement of the multiple pro and anti-apoptosis and NF-kB signalling pathways.
Antioxidant, Cytotoxic Activities, and Structure–Activity Relationship of Gallic Acid‐based Indole Derivatives
TLDR
A limited positive structure activity relationship was found between cytotoxic and antioxidant activities and a new series of gallic hydrazones containing an indole moiety was synthesized through the reaction of gallIC hydrazide and different indole carboxaldehydes.
Assessment of in vitro antioxidant, antibacterial and immune activation potentials of aqueous and ethanol extracts of Phyllanthus niruri.
TLDR
It is clear that both extracts of P. niruri has excellent bioactivity roles via elevated levels of antibacterial, antioxidant and percentage of peripheral blood mononuclear cell proliferation, which could lead to the development of medications for clinical use.
Wound Healing Activities of Rafflesia Hasseltii Extract in Rats
TLDR
Findings of increased rate of wound closure and contraction together with the histological findings suggest that Rafflesia hasseltii buds extract is very effective in accelerating the wound healing process.
Anti-malarial Activity of Isoquinoline Alkaloids from the Stem Bark of Actinodaphne macrophylla
TLDR
Seven isoquinoline alkaloids isolated from the bark of Actinodaphne macrophylla in this study demonstrated in vitro antiplasmodial activities against Plasmodium falciparum 3D7 with IC50 values comparable with the reference standard, chloroquine.
