Antioxidant and in vitro anti-inflammatory activities of Mimusops elengi leaves
Abstract Objective To assess the antioxidant and in vitro anti-inflammatory activities of the alcoholic extract of Mimusops elengi L (M. elengi) leaves. Methods In vitro antioxidant activity wasExpand
Evaluation of antitumor activity and in vivo antioxidant status of Anthocephalus cadamba on Ehrlich ascites carcinoma treated mice.
Experimental results revealed that MEAC possesses potent antitumor and antioxidant properties and further research is going on to find out the active principle(s) of MEAC for better understanding of mechanism of its antitumors and antioxidant activity. Expand
Free radical scavenging activity of Castanopsis indica in mediating hepatoprotective activity of carbon tetrachloride intoxicated rats
Objective To investigate the free radical scavenging activity of methanol extract of Castanopsis indica (C. indica) in mediating hepatoprotective activity of carbon tetrachloride intoxicated rats.
CNS depressant activity of Castanopsis indica leaves
Results suggest that the MECI has an analgesic effect, behave as a potential anticonvulsant and central nervous system depressant action and significantly reduced the immobility time of mice in both forced swim test (FST) and tail suspension test (TST). Expand
Antitumor activity and antioxidant property of Curcuma caesia against Ehrlich’s ascites carcinoma bearing mice
MECC possesses potent antitumor activity that may be due to its direct cytotoxic effect or antioxidant properties, and further research is in progress to find out the active principle(s) of MECC for its antitumors activity. Expand
Antitumor potential of Castanopsis indica (Roxb. ex Lindl.) A. DC. leaf extract against Ehrlich's ascites carcinoma cell.
The results revealed that MECI possesses significant dose dependent antitumor potential which may be due to its cytotoxicity and antioxidant properties. Expand
Regulation of apoptosis through bcl-2/bax proteins expression and DNA damage by Zanthoxylum alatum
The study showed that MEZA has antitumor activity which may be due to the presence of flavonoids in the extract, and showed satisfactory cytotoxicity in MTT assay. Expand
Neuropharmacological assessment of Curcuma caesia rhizome in experimental animal models
The results of the present study revealed remarkable analgesic, locomotor depressant, anticonvulsant and muscle relaxant effects of C. caesia rhizome, demonstrating depressant action on the central nervous system. Expand
Toxicity study of deflazacort on morphological development in zebrafish embryos
Toxicity of deflazacort on embryo development stage was evaluated using zebrafish embryos, showing that DFZ may have embryotoxic effect and it remains to explain the species-specific effects which draws conclusion regarding human risk assessments. Expand
Scavenging activity of Curcuma caesia rhizome against reactive oxygen and nitrogen species
Curcuma caesia Roxb. (Zingiberaceae), known as black turmeric in English, is a perennial herb found throughout the Himalayan region, North-East and Central India. The plant has been traditionallyExpand
