Xylopia laevigata (Annonaceae) is a medicinal plant used in folk medicine to treat pain and inflammation. Thus, we investigated the possible antioxidant, antinociceptive, and anti-inflammatory effects of X. laevigata leaf essential oil (EOX) in animal models. Our EOX sample showed the presence of γ-muurolene (17.78%), δ-cadinene (12.23%), bicyclogermacrene(More)

Oxygen is the most prevalent element in the earth’s crust. It exists in air as a diatomic molecule, O2. Except for a small number of anaerobic bacteria, all living organisms use O2 for energy production and it is essential for life as we know it. Energy production by organisms from food material requires “oxidation”, which implies the loss of electrons.(More)
In previous general screening experiments was found a potent spasmolytic effect in guinea-pig ileum promoted by a furanoflavan-type flavonoid 3,4,5,8-tetramethoxy-(6,7,2”,3”)-furanoflavan named diplotropin, obtained from the stem-barks of Lonchocarpus araripensis Benth., which effect is due, in part, to the inhibition of Ca influx through voltage-dependent(More)
This study investigates the gastroprotective effect of a crude ethanolic extract of Neoglaziovia variegata (Arruda) Mez (Bromeliaceae), designated Nv-EtOH, in experimental models of gastric ulcer. In the ethanol-induced gastric ulcer model, Nv-EtOH showed gastroprotection at doses of 200 and 400 mg/kg body weight (BW) (57.0% and 79.7%, respectively).(More)
This study evaluated the antiulcer activity of an ethanolic extract of Encholirium spectabile (ES-EtOH) by using different standard experimental models of induced acute gastric ulceration. ES-EtOH (100 mg/kg p.o) protected the gastric mucosa against ulceration that was induced by absolute ethanol (53%), ethanol/HCl (75%), ibuprofen (52 %) and(More)
Solanum asterophorum Mart. (Solanaceae) is a shrub popularly known as "jurubeba-defogo" in the northeast of Brazil. In the present work, the methanol extract (SA-MeOH, 3750 microg/mL) and isojuripidine (10(-7) - 3 x 10(-4) M), a steroidal alkaloid obtained from S. asterophorum Mart. leaves, inhibited phasic contractions induced by both 1 microM histamine(More)
