PHYTOCHEMICAL SCREENING, ANTIOXIDANT, ANTI-CYTOTOXIC AND ANTICANCER EFFECTS OF GALINSOGA PARVIFLORA AND VERNONIA POLYANTHES (ASTERACEAE) EXTRACTS
TLDR
Both species showed a tendency to promote cytotoxicity in human lymphocyte cells and antiproliferative potential in the assay with AGS cells, which reinforce the medicinal use of these plants, as well as suggest their potential use for the development of new drugs and for the treatment of cancers.
Preliminary phytochemical analysis, Antioxidant and cytotoxicity test of Carissa edulis Vahl dried fruits
Plants are the main source of medicine which is used in traditional as well as modern medicine in recent years for curing many diseases. Carissa edulis Vahl is one of the traditional plants which
Multifactorial role of flavonoids in prevention and treatment of various cancers
TLDR
The present review covers the recent studies, in vitro and in vivo, that highlight the promising potential of flavonoids in treating cancer.
High efficacy of (Z)-γ-bisabolene from the essential oil of Galinsoga parviflora (Asteraceae) as larvicide and oviposition deterrent against six mosquito vectors
TLDR
The oviposition deterrent potential of the G. parviflora EO and (Z)-γ-bisabolene was studied on six mosquito vectors, showing that 25 μg/ml of (Z), led to an Oviposition Activity Index lower of − 0.79 in all tested mosquito vectors.
