The effects of aqueous seed extract of Persea americana Mill. (avocado), var. Fuerte, on blood pressures, plasma and tissue lipids of albino rats were investigated. Twenty-five rats were divided into 5 groups of 5 rats each. Group 1 (normal), group 2 (hypertensive), group 3 (hypertensive + 200 mg/kg b .wt of extract), group 4 (hypertensive + 500 mg/kg b. wt of extract) and group 5 (hypertensive + 700 mg/kg b. wt of extract). Except for group 1, which received 100% growers mash, all other groups…

Hypolipidemic Effect of Avocado (Persea americana Mill) Seed in a Hypercholesterolemic Mouse Model
TLDR
The antioxidant activity of phenolic compounds and dietary fiber in ASF may be responsible for the hypocholesterolemic activity of ASF in a hyperlipidemic model of mice.
Protective Effects of Aqueous Extract of Persea Americana Leaves Against Secondary Sexual Traits and Histopathological Damages Induced by Antouka Super® in Male Japanese Quails (Coturnix sp)
TLDR
Results demonstrate that AS had a toxic effect on secondary sexual traits and testis histology in male quail which could be alleviated by AEPAL administration at 200mg/kg of b.w.
Alleviation of Diabetic Dyslipidemia in Alloxan-Induced Diabetic Rats using Aqueous Seed Extract of Persea Americana
TLDR
Results obtained from the diabetic study showed that plant extracts decreased blood glucose in a dose-dependent fashion and may support the acclaimed traditional use of Persea americana seed in controlling hyperglycemia in diabetes and its complications.
EVALUATION OF POSSIBLE EFFECTS OF PERSEA AMERICANA SEEDS ON FEMALE REPRODUCTIVE HORMONAL AND TOXICITY PROFILE.
TLDR
The extract of Persea americana seed affects female hormone activity and may find application in various hormonal management procedures, maternal and reproductive health and fertility control/help health facilities, however, it should be used with caution in women intending to conceive.
Alleviation of Diabetic Dyslipidemia in Alloxan-Induced Diabetic Rats using Aqueous Seed Extract of Persea Americana
Diabetes Mellitus is accompanied by hypercholesterolemia, hyperlipidemia and hepatic steatosis apart from hyperglycemia. Alleviation of diabetic dyslipidemia in alloxan-induced diabetic rats using
Antihyperglycemic and Antihyperlipidemic Effect of Persea americana in High Fat Diet and Low Dose Streptozotocin Induced T2DM Male Albino Wistar Rats
TLDR
Overall, Persea americana mill fruit juice showed antihyperglycemic and antihyperlipidemic effect particularly through reduction of fasting blood glucose, LDL-C and increasing HDL-C in T2DM induced rats, thus it can be helpful in reducing the risk of diabetic complications.

Observations on the Pathophysiology of Weaner Pigs Fed Raw and Preheated Nigerian Mucuna pruriens (Velvet Bean) Seeds
TLDR
It is suggested that raw Mucuna bean is poisonous to weaner pigs but relatively safe after preheats treatment, however, changes in hematological and serum biochemical parameters indicated poor nutrient utilization and muscle damage among pigs receiving higher levels of preheated seeds.
Defatted avocado pulp reduces body weight and total hepatic fat but increases plasma cholesterol in male rats fed diets with cholesterol.
TLDR
The data suggest the presence of an appetite depressant in avocado and that avocado pulp interferes with hepatic fat metabolism in male rats fed normal and hypercholesterolemic diets.
Chemopreventive characteristics of avocado fruit.
TLDR
It is suggested that individual and combinations of phytochemicals from the avocado fruit may offer an advantageous dietary strategy in cancer prevention and target multiple signaling pathways and increase intracellular reactive oxygen leading to apoptosis.

Flavonoid intake and the risk of cardiovascular disease in women.
TLDR
Flavonoid intake was not strongly associated with a reduced risk of CVD, and the nonsignificant inverse associations for broccoli, apples, and tea with CVD were not mediated by flavonoids and warrant further study.
Association between alpha 1 antitrypsin and bronchiectasis
TLDR
An association between A1ATD phenotypes and bronchiectasis severity, independent of the presence of emphysema is shown, which can be important not only in terms of diagnosis but also concerning a therapeutic strategy.
