Antileishmaniasis, phytotoxicity and cytotoxicity of Nigerian Euphorbiaceous Plants 2: Phyllanthus amarus and Phyllanthus muellerianus Extracts.
The higher cytotoxicity exhibited by P. muellerianus when compared with the standard drug, etoposide used as well as the good anti-leishmanial activity displayedby P. amarus justifies their ethno-medicinal uses and is suggestive of the presence of physiologically active natural products in both plants.
Bucharioside and buchariol from Salvia bucharica.
Chemical constituents from the seeds of Pongamia pinnata (L.) Pierre.
