Immunostimulant agents from Andrographis paniculata.
TLDR
The stimulation of both antigen specific and nonspecific immune response was, however, of lower order with andrographolide than with the EtOH extract, suggesting thereby that substance(s) other than andrograpolide present in the extract may also be contributing towards immunostimulation. Expand
Undetectable anti-bacterial activity of Andrographis paniculata (Burma) wall. ex ness.
TLDR
It is found that anti-bacterial activity of AP is undetectable in this study and was not demonstrable even in a solution containing 25,000 mg per litres of crude powder. Expand
Antifertility effect of andrographis paniculata in mice.
TLDR
Antifertility effect of Andrographis Paniculata was observed in mice under different experimental conditions and control mice continued to give birth to litters of usual size and number for subsequent six matings. Expand
Controlled clinical study of standardized Andrographis paniculata extract in common cold - a pilot trial.
TLDR
From the results evaluated it is quite clear that Kanjang(®) tablets decrease the subjective symptoms of common cold as well as shortening of the period of sick leave significantly. Expand

Andrographolide protects rat hepatocytes against paracetamol-induced damage.
TLDR
Andrographolide, the active constituent isolated from the plant Andrographis paniculata, showed a significant dose dependent protective activity against paracetamol-induced toxicity on ex vivo preparation of isolated rat hepatocytes and was found to be more potent than silymarin, a standard hepatoprotective agent. Expand
Antithrombotic effects of Andrographis paniculata nees in preventing myocardial infarction.
TLDR
TFAP might promote the synthesis of PGI2, inhibit the production of TXA2, stimulate the synthesisof cAMP in platelets, impede aggregation of platelet aggregation, and thereby prevent the formation of thrombi as well as the development of myocardial infarction. Expand
Antihepatotoxic effects of major diterpenoid constituents of Andrographis paniculata.
TLDR
It is revealed that I exhibited a lower protective potential than II and III, which were as effective as silymarin with respect to their effects on the formation of the degradation products of lipid peroxidation and release of GPT and AP in the serum. Expand
Hepatoprotective activity of andrographolide against galactosamine & paracetamol intoxication in rats.
TLDR
The results confirmed the in vivo hepatoprotective effect of andrographolide against galactosamine or paracetamol-induced hepatotoxicity in rats. Expand
