OBJECTIVE To study the anticonvulsant activity and neurotoxicity of ethanolic extract and ethyl acetate fraction of the rhizome of Smilax china (EESC and EAF, respectively) in mice. MATERIALS AND METHODS The anticonvulsant activities of EESC and EAF were studied against maximal electroshock (MES) and pentylenetetrazole (PTZ)-induced seizures in mice and(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess anti-psoriatic activity of the methanol extract and the isolated flavonoid quercetin from the rhizome of Smilax china (S. china) Linn. METHODS Mouse tail test was used for the evaluation of anti-psoriatic activity. Methanol extract (100 and 200 mg/kg b.w.) and isolated flavonoid quercetin (25 and 50 mg/kg b.w.) were tested in Swiss(More)
Psidium guajava L is commonly known as guava in English. The present investigation focuses on the toothache activity. The investigation is based upon the analgesic, anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial activity of water extract of Psidium guajava L. The study assessed the different solvent extracts of Psidium guajava leaf for thin layer chromatography (TLC)(More)
Feature selection (FS) is a process which attempts to select more informative features. In some cases, too many redundant or irrelevant features may overpower main features for classification. Feature selection can remedy this problem and therefore improve the prediction accuracy and reduce the computational overhead of classification algorithms. Irrelevant(More)
