The aim of the present study was to explore the effect of leaf extract of Asparagus racemosus for its anti-inflammatory effect. Study on ethanol extract from the leaves of Asparagus racemosus Willd. of Indian origin revealed that ethanol extract displayed marked anti-inflammatory effect at a dose of 600 mg/kg causing a maximum inhibition of about 46 % in paw oedema induced by carrageenan. Phytochemical screening of the ethanol extract of leaves of Asparagus racemosus revealed that sterols and…

A review on potential herbal treatments for ‘dandruff’ - the embarrassing scalp disorder
Assessment of the anti-dandruff effect of medicinal plants that are commonly available in Sri Lanka shows that the use of combined preparations of plant extracts are successful in treating dandruff compared to single herb preparations.
Asparagus racemosus leaf extract inhibits growth of UOK 146 renal cell carcinoma cell line: simultaneous oncogenic PRCCTFE3 fusion transcript inhibition and apoptosis independent cell death.
Evidence of antiproliferative effect, PRCC-TFE3 fusion transcript inhibition and static BAX level clearly indicate that AR extract provides or elicits an apoptosis independent anticancer effect on RCC cells by some specific mechanism of regulation.

Handbook of biologically active phytochemicals and their activities
The CRC Handbook of Biologically Active Phytochemicals and Their Activities makes it possible for the first time to locate the concentration of many compounds in plants and compare this data with dosage information to calculate how much of a given plant food it would take to cause lethality, antioxidant activity, hypoglycemic activity, or artemicidal activity.
