  • 2018
TLDR
The present study critically reviewed the ethnomedicinal uses, phytochemistry, and pharmacological properties of E. capensis and concluded that detailed studies are required to establish the efficacy, clinical relevance, safety, and mechanisms of action of the plant extracts and compounds.
Cytotoxicity, Acute, and Subacute Study of Hydroalcoholic Root Extract of Carissa spinarum L. on Wistar Rats.
TLDR
The cytotoxicity on Artemia salina, the acute and subacute (28 days) oral toxicity of C. spinarum hydroalcoholic root extract on Wistar rats, and results of biochemical and hematological parameters have not shown any treatment-related abnormalities.
A 90-Day Oral Toxicity of Hydroethanolic Root Extract of Carissa spinarum in Wistar Rats
TLDR
The results indicated that an ethanolic root extract of Carissa spinarum does not cause adverse effects, which can lead to Wistar rats' death after 90-day oral administration at 500 and 1000 mg.
