ANTIOXIDANT AND ANTI-INFLAMMATORY POTENTIAL OF PTEROSPERMUM ACERIFOLIUM
TLDR
The results obtained in this study showed that the leaves of Pterospermum acerIFolium L. acerifolium have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties which provide a basis for the traditional use of the plant.
Immunosuppressive activity of hexane and ethanolic extracts of Pterospermum acerifolium seeds in BALB/c mice
TLDR
Both hexane and ethanolic extracts exerted remarkable dose-dependent immunosuppressive effect with down-regulation of all the immune markers studied, which are exceedingly encouraging and warrant bioactivity guided fractionation/purification to locate the activity in a single molecule for its future use in autoimmune disorders and organ transplant patients.
Evaluation Of Antimitotic And Anticancer Activity Of The Crude Extracts Of Pterospermum acerifolium Willd Leaves (Sterculiaceae)
TLDR
Ethanol and Water extracts showed good antimitotic activity against meristamatic cell growth and antiproliferative activity is due to fragmentation effect on DNA.
