Background & Aim: Antiplasmodial activity of leaf extract of Breynia nivosa was evaluated to ascertain the folkloric claim of its antimalarial activity. Experimental: The crude leaf extract (75 – 225 mg/kg), of Breynia nivosa was investigated for antiplasmodial activity against chloroquine sensitive Plasmodium berghei infections in mice. The antiplasmodial activity during early and established infections as well as prophylactic were investigated. Artesunate 5 mg/kg and pyrimethamine 1.2 mg/kg…

In vitro and in vivo analysis of the anti-plasmodial activity of ethanol extract of Phyllanthus nivosus W. Bull leaf
This study demonstrated that P. nivosus leaf possesses antimalarial potential and contains bioactive compounds that could be beneficial in the development of new antimalaria agents.
Hepatotoxic Effects of Ethanolic leaf Extract of Breynia nivosa (Snow bush) in Wistar rats
The hepatotoxic effects of ethanolic leaf extract of Breynia nivosa in male albino Wistar rats were studied. The Breynia nivosa leaves were extracted using 70% ethanol. The phytochemicals were
Effects of Plant Growth Regulators on Frequency Shoot Multiplication of an Important Ornamental and Medicinal Plant, Snowbush (Breynia disticha)
In vitro shoot multiplication from the nodal segments of the ornamental and medicinal shrub Snowbush is described and 6-benzyl aminopurine at a concentration of 0.5 mg/L was found to be the most effective cytokinin in inducing multiple shoots.

A series of N-benzyloxydihydrotriazines were prepared and found to have antimalarial activity against Plasmodium berghei infections in mice. One of the most active of these compounds. 4,6-diamino-1...
Mode of action of the antitumor compound bruceantin, an inhibitor of protein synthesis.
It is demonstrated that the side chain of bruceantin is important for transport of the drug into intact cells and that partial unsaturation in ring A is required for inhibition of protein synthesis.
