Analgesic and anti-inflammatory activities of a fraction rich in oncocalyxone A isolated from Auxemma oncocalyx.
Results show that quinone fraction isolated from the heartwood of Auxemma oncocalyx Taub significantly inhibited paw edema induced by carrageenan at the second, third, and fourth hours, and QF was less effective orally. Expand
Antioxidant effects in the quinone fraction from Auxemma oncocalyx TAUB.
It is shown that QF, represented mainly by oncocalyxone A, has hepatoprotective activity, and this effect is at least in part due to the antioxidant activity of this quinone. Expand
Inhibition of platelet activation by quinones isolated from Auxemma oncocalyx Taub.
The results show that the quinone fraction (QF) is a reversible and concentration-dependent inhibitor of human platelet aggregation induced by ADP, arachidonic acid (AA), collagen and thrombin, and possibly acts through a combined cyclo-oxygenase and TxA2 synthase inhibition. Expand
