Evaluation of 13 selected medicinal plants from Burkina Faso for their antiplasmodial properties.
Antiplasmodial and cytotoxic activities of Rwandan medicinal plants used in the treatment of malaria.
Screening of medicinal plants from Reunion Island for antimalarial and cytotoxic activity.
The DNA intercalating alkaloid cryptolepine interferes with topoisomerase II and inhibits primarily DNA synthesis in B16 melanoma cells.
Direct evidence is provided that DNA is the primary target of cryptolepine and it is suggested that this alkaloid is a valid candidate for the development of tumor active compounds.
New 3-deoxyanthocyanidins from leaves of Arrabidaea chica.
Two new 3-deoxyanthocyanidins and the pigment carajurin were isolated from dried leaves of Arrabidaea chica, a creeper native to the American tropics, and the structures were elucidated by 1H- and 13C-NMR spectroscopy and HPLC-MS.

A high-performance thin layer chromatographic (HPTLC) method was developed and employed to analyse commercial samples to illustrate their application in qualitative ('fingerprint') and quantitative determination, demonstrating their feasibility in the quality control of flavonoids from crude Passiflora drugs and phytomedicines.
In vitro and in vivo antimalarial and cytotoxic activity of five plants used in congolese traditional medicine.
Antioxidant and Antiradical Activities of Manihot esculenta Crantz (Euphorbiaceae) Leaves and Other Selected Tropical Green Vegetables Investigated on Lipoperoxidation and…
This work investigated the capacity of aqueous extracts prepared from those vegetables to inhibit the peroxidation of a linoleic acid emulsion and identified the presence of some polyphenolic compounds, which explains at least partially the inhibitions observed in models.
About the toxicity of some Strychnos species and their alkaloids.
