The negative effect of monogenea on piscine host may vary in the host species. Genus Mizelleus (Monogenea: Ancyrocephalidae) was reported for the first time from the freshwater shark, Wallago attu (Bl. and Schn.) at Lucknow by Jain (1957). Haptor or opisthohaptor of monogenea which is more or less discoid muscular structure situated posteriorly, is the(More)
ETHNOPHARMACOLOGICAL RELEVANCE α-Amyrin (a pentacyclic triterpene widely distributed in nature and isolated from a variety of plant sources and pharmacologically shown a wide spectrum of activity including anti-inflammatory, anti-ulcer, anti-hyperlipidemic, anti-tumor, and hepatoprotective actions) explored as hepatomodulator from the ethanol extract of the(More)
The antioxidant and hepatoprotective activities of the extract of Moringa oleifera leaves were investigated against CCl₄-induced hepatotoxicity in rats. Hepatotoxic rats were treated with ethanol extract of Moringa oleifera for a period of 60 days at the following three dose levels; 100, 200 and 400 mg/kg body weight/day, orally. The activities were studied(More)
In search of a new potent as an antioxidant from natural sources, plumieride-an iridoid isolated from the methanol extract of the bark of Plumeria bicolor (family Apocynaceae) was evaluated for its antioxidant potential against CCl₄-induced peroxidative damage in liver of rats. The antioxidant potential was evaluated by using hepatic tissue for SOD(More)
