Antidiabetic and antioxidant potential of β‐sitosterol in streptozotocin‐induced experimental hyperglycemia
TLDR
The aim of the present study was to evaluate the antioxidant potential of β‐sitosterol (BS), a phytosterol from Solanum surattense, using an experimental model for diabetes‐induced oxidative damage. Expand
Effect of Saponins of Albizia lebbeck (L.) Benth bark on the reproductive system of male albino rats.
Oral administration of saponins isolated from Albizia lebbeck bark at the dose level of 50 mg/kg/b.w. per day for 60 days to male rats brought about a significant decrease in the weights of testes,Expand
Antifertility effects of methanolic pod extract of Albizzia lebbeck (L.) Benth in male rats.
TLDR
The methanolic extract of A. lebbeck pods causes spermatogenic arrest in male albino rats and causes significant decrease in the weights of testis, seminal vesicles, epdidymis and ventral prostate. Expand
Antifertility effect of Tinospora cordifolia (Willd.) stem extract in male rats.
TLDR
Sperm motility as well as sperm density were reduced significantly which resulted in reduction of male fertility by 100%, suggesting antifertility effects of the stem extract of T. cordifolia in male rats. Expand
Plants for male fertility regulation
TLDR
The type of extract, dose, animal model and pharmacological activity of these materials have been reviewed in this paper to add impetus to further research and collaboration to resolve the problem of population explosion. Expand
Antifertility studies of the root extract of the Barleria prionitis Linn in male albino rats with special reference to testicular cell population dynamics.
TLDR
Antifertility effects of Barleria seemed to be mediated by disturbances in testicular somatic cells functions (Leydig and Sertoli cells) resulting in the physio-morphological events of spermatogenesis. Expand
Antifertility studies of Colebrookia oppositifolia leaf extract in male rats with special reference to testicular cell population dynamics.
TLDR
Reduced sperm count and motility resulted in 100% negative fertility at 200 mg/kg dose level and a significant fall in the total protein and sialic acid content and acid phosphatase enzyme activity of the testes, epididymides, seminal vesicle and ventral prostate, as well as in the glycogen content of testes was observed at both dose levels in comparison with controls. Expand
Antispermatogenic, antiandrogenic activities of Albizia lebbeck (L.) Benth bark extract in male albino rats.
TLDR
Oral administration of A. lebbeck bark extract administration arrests spermatogenesis in male rats without noticeable side effects and results in reduction of male fertility by 100%. Expand
A review on potentiality of medicinal plants as the source of new contraceptive principles.
TLDR
This review embraces the natural contraceptives upto year 2001 with 355 references and includes the isolation of their active principles, methods of analysis of active ingredients through TLC, HPLC, their side effects and pharmacological action. Expand
Hypocholesterolaemic effect of the oleoresin of Capsicum annum L. in gerbils (Meriones hurrianae Jerdon)
TLDR
The effect of capsicum oleoresin (CO) on dietary hypercholeterolaemia were observed in male gerbils at a dose of 75 mg/kg body wt/day and the faecal excretion of cholesterol and triglycerides were significantly increased in oLEoresin fed gerbil. Expand
