Bioactive 12-oleanene triterpene and secotriterpene acids from Maytenus undata.
TLDR
The new 3,4-secotriterpene acid 20-epi-koetjapic acid (5) potently inhibited rat neonatal brain microglia phorbol ester-stimulated thromboxane B(2) and superoxide anion (IC(50) = 1.9 microM) generation. Expand
Evaluation of mastic, a crude drug obtained from Pistacia lentiscus for gastric and duodenal anti-ulcer activity.
TLDR
The results suggest that mild antisecretory and a localized adaptive cytoprotectant action may be responsible for its anti-ulcer activity. Expand
Aloe vera extract functionalized zinc oxide nanoparticles as nanoantibiotics against multi-drug resistant clinical bacterial isolates.
TLDR
The results elucidated a rapid, environmentally benign, cost-effective, and convenient method for ALE-ZnONPs synthesis, for possible applications as nanoantibiotics or drug carriers. Expand
Traditional uses of medicinal plants practiced by the indigenous communities at Mohmand Agency, FATA, Pakistan
TLDR
There is a dire need to phytochemically and pharmacologically test the investigated taxa for the validation of traditional knowledge in the field of ethnomedicines. Expand
Anti-inflammatory activity of Teucrium polium.
TLDR
The ethanolic extract of Teucrium polium at a dose of 500 mg/kg body weight produced significant inhibition of carrageenan-induced inflammation and cotton-pellet granuloma and some of the biochemical parameters. Expand
Pharmacological studies on aerial parts of Calotropis procera.
TLDR
The safety evaluation studies revealed that the use of extract in single high doses (up to 3 g/kg) does not produce any visible toxic symptoms or mortality, however, prolong treatment (90 days) causes significantly higher mortality as compared to control group. Expand
Post-coital antifertility activity of the seeds of Coriandrum sativum in rats.
TLDR
The extracts produced a significant decrease in serum progesterone levels on day-5 of pregnancy which may be responsible for the anti-implantation effect observed in this study. Expand
