Allium cepa L. has known potent antidiabetic effects due to several of its constituents, including kaempferol -3-O-β-D-6''-(p-coumaroyl) glucopyranoside (kaempferol). This preliminary work was aimed at preparing oral hard gelatin capsules of kaempferol obtained from Allium cepa L. In order to obtain more potent hypoglycemic activities, lower side effects with good patient compliance over the crude extract kaempferol were isolated from Allium cepa L. and formulated into capsule dosage form. The…

Formulation Effects in the Antioxidant Activity of Extract from the Leaves of Cymbopogon citratus (DC) Stapf

The results suggest that the proposed formulation for this extract could be a valuable antioxidant product and, consequently, make an important contribution to “preventing” and minimizing diseases related to oxidative stress conditions.

The Antidiabetic Effects of The Bioactive Flavonoid (Kaempferol-3-O-β-D-6{P- Coumaroyl} Glucopyranoside) Isolated From Allium cepa.

The research findings have supported the claims that extracts of Allium cepa possess glucose lowering properties in experimental diabetic animals.

Biological Properties and Bioactive Components of Allium cepa L.: Focus on Potential Benefits in the Treatment of Obesity and Related Comorbidities

The aim of this review is to provide an overview of the studies concerning the beneficial effects of this species against obesity and its related comorbidities, such as hyperlipidaemia, hypertension and diabetes.

Kaempferol: A Key Emphasis to Its Anticancer Potential

Even though growing evidence supports the use of kaempferol for cancer prevention, further preclinical and clinical investigations using kaEMPferol or kaempFERol-rich foods are of pivotal importance before any public health recommendation or formulation using kaempfol.

Involvement of rat cytochrome 1A1 in the biotransformation of kaempferol to quercetin: relevance to the genotoxicity of kaempferol.

The results obtained in this work suggest that rat CYP 1A1 is, among the cytochromes studied, the one that plays the major role in the transformation of kaempferol into quercetin.

Isolated Compounds from Natural Products with Potential Antidiabetic Activity - A Systematic Review.

This review focuses on isolated compounds from medicinal plant species that have reported antidiabetic activity in diabetes models and contributes to the field of ethnopharmacology and should impact the design of new strategies in the search of novel compounds for the treatment of diabetic conditions.

Chemo‐preventive and therapeutic effect of the dietary flavonoid kaempferol: A comprehensive review

The aim of the present review is to collect information pertaining to the effective role of kaempferol against various degenerative disorders, summarize the antioxidant, anti‐inflammatory, anticancer, antidiabetic, and antiaging effects of kaEMPferol, and to review the progress of recent research and available data on ka Kempferol as a protective and chemotherapeutic agent against several ailments.

Bioactive Principles from Medicinal Plants

The present review highlighted the chemical diversity and medicinal potentials of bioactive principles as well inherent toxicity concerns associated with the use of these plant products, which are of relevance to the clinician, pharmacist or toxicologist.

Kaempferol Suppresses Proliferation and Induces Cell Cycle Arrest, Apoptosis, and DNA Damage in Breast Cancer Cells.

Results showed that kaempferol may be a potential drug for the effective treatment of TNBC and induced apoptosis and DNA damage in MDA-MB-231 cells, a flavonoid that has been extensively investigated owing to its antitumor effects.

Mutagenicity of kaempferol in V79 cells: the role of cytochromes P450.

It is suggested that there is a time-dependent biotransformation of kaempferol to quercetin, by cytochromes P450, as assessed by high pressure liquid chromatography, which seems to contribute to the mutagenicity of kaEMPferol in the presence of microsomal metabolizing systems.

Pharmaceutics : the science of dosage form design

The design of dosage forms, principles of sterilization practice, and the operation of clean rooms are described, which will help clarify the role of bioavailability in drug delivery.
