The in vitro antioxidant and cytotoxic activities in different extracts of Baccharis coridifolia DC. (Compositae) were studied using different bioassays. Antioxidant activity was tested using hydroperoxide-initiated chemiluminescence (CL) in rat liver homogenates. The aqueous extract showed antioxidant activity (IC50 = 141 microg/ml), while the dichloromethane and methanol extracts were prooxidant. Activity in the aqueous extract was confirmed by determination of thiobarbituric acid-reactive… CONTINUE READING
