Free Radical Scavenging and Hepatoprotective Constituents from the Leaves of Juglans sinensis

In the course of searching for hepatoprotective agents from natural products, six compounds were isolated from the MeOH extract of the leaves of Juglans sinensis, as guided by their DPPH free radical scavenging activity, and compounds 1, 2, and 5 showed protective effects against nitrofurantoin-induced cytotoxicity.

Antioxidative and antiproliferative activities of different horsetail (Equisetum arvense L.) extracts.

The results obtained suggest that the horsetail extracts could be used as an easily accessible source of natural antioxidants and as potential phytochemicals.

Hepatoprotective Activity of Cichorium endivia L. Extract and Its Chemical Constituents

Taken together, CEE protects hepatic tissue from oxidative damage in vitro and in vivo, potentially due to its phenolic substances, and does not cause acute oral toxicity, which suggests that CEE may be a valid and safe remedy to cure liver disease.


The ability of an aqueous extract of the rhizomes of Sansevieria liberica to protect against carbon tetrachloride induced liver injury was investigated in Wistar albino rats. The carbon tetrachloride

Effect of methanol extract of Dicranopteris linearis against carbon tetrachloride- induced acute liver injury in rats

The MEDL showed higher DPPH- and superoxide anion-radical scavenging activity as well as high TPC and ORAC values indicating high antioxidant activity, which demands further investigation.

Hepatoprotective and Free Radical Scavenging Activities of Extracts and a Major Compound Isolated from the Leaves of Cineraria abyssinica Sch. Bip. exA. Rich.

Abstract In Ethiopian traditional medicine the aqueous decoction of the leaves of Cineraria abyssinica Sch. Bip. exA. Rich (Asteraceae) is used for the treatment of various ailments including liver

An Aqueous Extract of the Leaves of Tridax procumbens Linn (Asteraceae) Protected Against Carbon Tetrachloride Induced Liver Injury in Wistar Rats.

Treatment with the plant extracts protects the liver against carbon tetrachloride induced hepatotoxicity, thus supporting the use of T. procumbens in African traditional health care for the treatment of liver problems.

Phytochemical Screening and Hepatoprotective Activity of the Aerial Parts of Lotus polyphyllos

Qualitative phytochemical analysis of the total 70% ethanolic extract of the aerial parts of Lotus polyphyllos E.D. Clarke belonging to family Fabaceae growing in Egypt and the fractions thereof was

Hepatoprotective and antioxidant activities of Hibiscus sabdariffa petal extracts in Wistar rats

These results confirm and reinforce certain therapeutic virtues of H. sabdariffa and confirm the hepatoprotective and antioxidant properties of the AEHS.



Hepatoprotective and free radical scavenging activities of prenylflavonoids, coumarin, and stilbene from Morus alba.

Chemical investigation of the EtOH extract of Morus alba L. (Moraceae), as guided by free radical scavenging activity, furnished 5,7-dihydroxycoumarin 7-methyl ether, which showed hepatoprotective effects with EC(50) values of 10.3 +/- 0.62 micro, on tacrine-induced cytotoxicity in human liver-derived Hep G2 cells.

Furocoumarins from Angelica dahurica with hepatoprotective activity on tacrine-induced cytotoxicity in Hep G2 cells.

Comparison of hepatoprotective activities for six furocoumarins 1 - 6 suggested that oxy-substitution at the C-9 position increased the hepatoprotsective activity.

Diarylheptanoids with free radical scavenging and hepatoprotective activity in vitro from Curcuma longa.

Assay-guided fractionation of the EtOAc soluble fraction of the rhizomes of Curcuma longa furnished three DPPH free radical scavenging diarylheptanoids, curcumin, and bisdemethoxycurcumin that showed significant hepatoprotective effects on tacrine-induced cytotoxicity in human liver-derived Hep G2 cells.

Sesquiterpenes with hepatoprotective activity from Cnidium monnieri on tacrine-induced cytotoxicity in Hep G2 cells.

Bioassay-guided fractionation of the EtOH extract of Cnidium monnieri (Apiaceae) furnished two hepatoprotective sesquiterpenes, torilin (1) and torilolone (2), together with a new derivative,

Hepatotoxicity of tacrine: occurrence of membrane fluidity alterations without involvement of lipid peroxidation.

Early alterations of membrane fluidity, not resulting from lipid peroxidation, are likely to play an important role in the development of THA toxicity.

Chemical and chemotaxonomical studies on filices. LI. Chemical studies on the constituents of Costa Rican ferns. 3.

The constituents of three Costa Rican ferns of Pteridaceae were investigated. From Jamesonia scammanae A. TRYON, a new pterosin-type compound (I), named jamesonin, along with two pterosin derivatives

Smooth muscle relaxant activity of pterosin Z and related compounds.

The results suggest that smooth muscle relaxant activity is reduced when a phenol group is present in the pterosin nucleus and when one of the dimethyl groups is derivatized.

Free radicals and other reactive oxygen metabolites: clinical relevance and the therapeutic efficacy of antioxidant therapy.

Because the manipulation of oxidant-mediated tissue injury represents treating disease at its most basic level, the therapeutic potential of this approach remains not only promising but exciting.
