Introduction. Several plant preparations like a mixture of aqueous extracts of Spilanthes africana; Portulaca oleracea; and Sida rhombifolia are currently utilized in Foumban (West Cameroon) to manage diabetes. The aim of this study is to investigate the antidiabetic property of the aqueous mixture of three plant extracts (1 : 1 : 1) on streptozotocin induced diabetes rats. Methods. Diabetes was induced to rats by intraperitoneal (i.p.) injection of streptozotocin (STZ) at a dose of 50 mg/kg b… Expand
PHYTOCHEMICAL SCREENING OF POLYHERBAL COMPOSITION BASED ON Portulaca oleracea AND IT’S EFFECT ON MACROPHAGE OXIDATIVE METABOLISM
TLDR
Traditional anti-inflammatory effects of this plant can be implemented through the immunosuppressive or immune-stimulant effects and there are lack of obvious and clear characteristics of its impact on different effector cells of immune system, including phagocytes which are key players of majority immune responses. Expand
Hydroethanolic Extract from Bridelia atroviridis Müll. Arg. Bark Improves Haematological and Biochemical Parameters in Nicotinamide-/Streptozotocin-Induced Diabetic Rats
TLDR
The hydroethanolic extract of B. atroviridis was able to improve glycemia and alleviate haematological and inflammatory parameters disorders observed in diabetic conditions, probably due to its antidiabetic, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant capacities. Expand
The antihyperglycemic and antihyperlipidemic effect of ethanolic extract of Apium Graveolens (celery) in Streptozocin/ high fat diet induced hyperglycemic mice.
In spite of the drugs available for the reatment of diabetes and high blood lipids but still accompanied by undesirable side effects, and so a wide attention and tendency for herbal and poly herbalExpand
Preclinical safety assessment of the crude extract from Sida rhombifolia L. aerial parts in experimental models of acute and repeated-dose 28 days toxicity in rats.
TLDR
Results demonstrate that the CESR did not present significant toxic effects when administrated orally to male and female rats in acute and repeated doses. Expand
Phytochemical characterization, in vitro and in silico approaches for three Hypericum species
Members of the Hypericum genus are spread throughout the world and have a long history of use in traditional systems of medicines. In this present investigation, the methanolic extracts of aerialExpand
Antioxidant potential of two varieties of Sesamum indicum L. collected from Indonesia
TLDR
Phenolic compounds in black sesame seeds were found to be the major contributors to antioxidant activities by using ABTS and FRAP methods and have the potential to be developed as sources of natural antioxidants. Expand
Optimization of an Antihyperglycemic Triherbal Formulation using Response Surface Methodology

An Integrative Pharmacology-Based Approach for Evaluating the Potential Effects of Purslane Seed in Diabetes Mellitus Treatment Using UHPLC-LTQ-Orbitrap and TCMIP V2.0
TLDR
It is confirmed that purslane seed treatment resulted in hypoglycemic activity, lowering the fasting blood glucose and glycated hemoglobin levels in streptozotocin-induced diabetic mice, and indicated that MCXZ exhibited anti-diabetic activity through multi-faced actions. Expand
ENHANCEMENT OF IN VITRO ANTIOXIDANT POTENTIAL OF TERMINALIA CHEBULA BY VARIOUS FRUIT EXTRACTS AND OPTIMIZATION OF CONCENTRATION BY RESPONSE SURFACE METHODOLOGY
Objective: The main objective of this study was to determine the enhancement of in vitro antioxidant potential of fruits of Terminalia chebula (TC) when used in combination with fruit extracts ofExpand
In vitro and in vivo immunomodulatory potential of Pedicularis longiflora and Allium carolinianum in alloxan-induced diabetes in rats.
TLDR
This is the first study to show that P. longiflora ethanol extract has more potent in vitro and in vivo immunomodulatory activities than A. carolinianum, especially in alloxan-induced diabetic rats, and further research is needed to identify the different molecular mechanisms involved in mediating this immunommodulatory response.
