Aphrodisiac properties of Tribulus Terrestris extract (Protodioscin) in normal and castrated rats.
TLDR
It is concluded that TT extract appears to possess aphrodisiac activity probably due to androgen increasing property of TT (observed in an earlier study on primates). Expand
Papaya (Carica papaya) consumption is unsafe in pregnancy: fact or fable? Scientific evaluation of a common belief in some parts of Asia using a rat model
TLDR
The results of the present study suggest that normal consumption of ripe papaya during pregnancy may not pose any significant danger, however, the unripe or semi-ripe papaya (which contains high concentration of the latex that produces marked uterine contractions) could be unsafe in pregnancy. Expand
Tocolytic and toxic activity of papaya seed extract on isolated rat uterus.
TLDR
It is concluded that at high concentration, EEPS is capable of causing irreversible uterine tocolysis probably due to the damaging effect of BITC (its chief phytochemical) on the myometrium. Expand
Proerectile pharmacological effects of Tribulus terrestris extract on the rabbit corpus cavernosum.
TLDR
The relaxant responses to acetylcholine, nitroglycerin and EFS and the lack of such effect on the contractile response to noradrenaline and histamine indicate that PTN has a proerectile activity, which may account for its claims as an aphrodisiac. Expand
Sexual effects of puncturevine (Tribulus terrestris) extract (protodioscin): an evaluation using a rat model.
TLDR
The increase in ICP which confirms the proerectile aphrodisiac property of TT could possibly be the result of an increase in androgen and subsequent release of nitric oxide from the nerve endings innervating the corpus cavernosum. Expand
Effects on Hemostasis After Two-Year Use of Low Dose Combined Oral Contraceptives with Gestodene or Levonorgestrel
TLDR
A longer term study is warranted to investigate any adverse hemostatic changes that might enhance the risks of venous thromboembolism in Asian subjects known to be less prone to thrombosis. Expand
Hemostatic Status and Fibrinolytic Response Potential at Different Phases of the Menstrual Cycle
TLDR
The study demonstrated that systemic coagulation, fibrinolysis, and platelet function were probably not influenced by natural hormonal changes occurring during the menstrual cycle except for an associated reduced fibralelytic state at mid-cycle. Expand
Pregnancy outcomes following pre- and post-implantation exposure of Sprague-Dawley rats to benzyl isothiocyanate.
TLDR
At 12.5-50 mg/kg, BITC did not cause significant pre- and post-implantation fetal loss in pregnant rats, but BITC-induced low fetal and placental weights could be of obstetrical importance, but at levels/doses that would provoke maternal toxicity. Expand
Rb-Sr whole-Rock Isochron Age of Early Proterozoic Potassic Granite from Dharmawaram, Karimnagar District, Andhra Pradesh
Whole-rock Rb-Sr isochron dating of pink potassic (av.5% K 2 O) granite from Dharmawaram, Karimnagar district, Andhra Pradesh, defines an isochron corresponding to an age of 2237±46 Ma with initialExpand
