Antibacterial and Anti-inflammatory Activities of Ethanol Extract Obtained from The Hooks of Uncaria tomentosa (Wild. Ex Schult) DC Originated Kalimantan, Indonesia
Uncaria tomentosa is one natural medicinal plant. The plant parts commonly harvested and utilized are the leaves and twigs. This study aimed to find out the benefit of the hook of U. tomentosa
Recent research progress of Uncaria spp. based on alkaloids: phytochemistry, pharmacology and structural chemistry.
This review summarizes and discuss the research progress of Uncaria based on alkaloids in the past 15 years, mainly in thepast 5 years, including biosynthesis, phytochemistry, pharmacology and structural chemistry, and the pharmacological activities surrounding the central nervous system and cardiovascular system are described in detail.
Anti-inflammatory activities of Taxusabietane A isolated from Taxus wallichiana Zucc.
The potential of Taxusabietane A to be further explored as a new lead compound for management of conditions associated with inflammation is highlighted.
Pistagremic acid a new leishmanicidal triterpene isolated from Pistacia integerrima Stewart
Pistagremic acid showed significant leishmanicidal activity against Leishmania major (DESTO) promastigotes in comparison to standard compound amphotericin B (IC50: 0.06 µM).
Analgesic and antiinflammatory activities of taxoids from Taxus wallichiana Zucc.
The potential of tasumatrol B to be further explored as a new lead compound for the management of pain and inflammation, one that has been discovered by scientific validation of the traditional medicinal use of T. wallichiana Zucc is highlighted.
Molecular simulations of bergenin as a new urease inhibitor
Bergenin is well-established and potent antioxidant compound with known gastro-protective effects. Main aim of the current investigation was to study the urease inhibitory potential of bergenin both
Molecular simulations probing Kushecarpin A as a new lipoxygenase inhibitor.
In vitro and in vivo anti-inflammatory inflammatory activities were found in good agreement with the folk medicinal use of Z. oxyphylla Edgew in inflammatory disorders.

En la actualidad el uso de la fitoterapia adquiere mayor demanda por parte de los pacientes y muchos profesionales de la salud debido a su facil acceso, bajo costo y por presentar reacciones adversas


Ethnobotany, phytochemistry and pharmacology of Uncaria (Rubiaceae).
The collected information is an attempt to cover the more recent developments in the ethnobotany, pharmacology and phytochemistry of the Uncaria genus, an important source of medicinal natural products, particularly alkaloids and triterpenes.
Antioxidant properties of proanthocyanidins of Uncaria tomentosa bark decoction: a mechanism for anti-inflammatory activity.
Results provide evidence for an antioxidant mechanism underlying the anti-inflammatory activity of cat's claw and support some of the biological effects of proanthocyanidins, more exactly its antioxidant and radical scavenging activities.
Antiproliferative activity of various Uncaria tomentosa preparations on HL-60 promyelocytic leukemia cells.
By standardization and statistical comparison of the obtained results pteropodine and isomitraphylline are indicated to be most suitable for standardization of medical cat's claw preparations.
HIV-Inhibitory prenylated xanthones and flavones from Maclura tinctoria.
The organic extract of the plant Maclura tinctoria exhibited moderate anti-HIV activity. Seven prenylated phenolic derivatives were isolated from the active fractions and characterized by
New isoprenylated flavones, artochamins A--E, and cytotoxic principles from Artocarpus chama.
Five new isoprenylated flavones, artochamins A-E (1-5), together with eight known flavones (6-13), were isolated from the roots of Artocarpus chama. All structures were elucidated by spectroscopic
Two new cytotoxic isoprenylated flavones, artoindonesianins U and V, from the heartwood of Artocarpus champeden.
Two new isoprenylated flavones, artoindonesianins U (1) and V (2), have been isolated from the heartwood of Artocarpus champeden and showed strong cytotoxic activity against P-388 cell lines.
Immunomodulating and antiviral activities of Uncaria tomentosa on human monocytes infected with Dengue Virus-2.
The alkaloidal fraction of U. tomentosa pentacyclic oxindole alkaloids displayed novel properties regarding therapeutic procedures in Dengue Fever and might be further investigated as a promising candidate for clinical application.
