Antiviral activities of extracts and selected pure constituents of Ocimum basilicum
1. Ocimum basilicum (OB), also known as sweet basil, is a well known medicinal herb in traditional Chinese medicine preparations. In the present study, extracts and purified components of OB wereExpand
ANTIVIRAL EFFECTS OF SAIKOSAPONINS ON HUMAN CORONAVIRUS 229E IN VITRO
TLDR
The present results indicate that saikosaponin B2 has potent anticoronaviral activity and that its mode of action possibly involves interference in the early stage of viral replication, such as absorption and penetration of the virus. Expand
Antiviral activity of Plantago major extracts and related compounds in vitro.
TLDR
Pure compounds of P. major, which possess antiviral activities are mainly derived from the phenolic compounds, especially caffeic acid, which was found to be at multiplication stages against HSV-2 and ADV-3, suggesting the potential use of this compound for treatment of the infection by these two viruses. Expand
Cytotoxicity and anti-hepatitis B virus activities of saikosaponins from Bupleurum species.
TLDR
It is concluded that saikosaponin c exhibits anti-HBV activity and saikOSaponin d possesses potent cytotoxicity against human hepatocellular carcinoma cells. Expand
Anti-proliferative effect of apigenin and its apoptotic induction in human Hep G2 cells.
TLDR
The present study concludes that the anti-hepatoma activity of apigenin is as effective as 5-FU and its apoptotic mechanism might be mediated through the p53-dependent pathway and the induction of p21 expression. Expand

Abstract Momordica charantia Linn. var. abbreviata Ser. (Cucurbitaceae), also known as “Shan Ku Gua”, is a wild variety of bitter melon (BM) in Taiwan. The size of its fruits is only about one-fifthExpand
Antioxidant activity of Cinnamomum cassia
TLDR
EECC revealed the strongest antioxidant activity followed by α‐tocopherol and HWECC, and could be used as a good source of antioxidant in the dietary supplement. Expand
Antihepatoma activity of Physalis angulata and P. peruviana extracts and their effects on apoptosis in human Hep G2 cells.
TLDR
The results conclude that EEPP possesses potent antihepatoma activity and its effect on apoptosis is associated with mitochondrial dysfunction. Expand
