Euphorbia hirta L. is one of the potential sources for functional food material due to its sufficient biological activity coming from its active flavonoid. Quantitative analysis of its active substances using an adequate method and determining the plant part which possesses the highest yield are essential. However, there was no study reported such that information. Therefore, this study was aimed to analyze flavonoid content (quercitrin and myricitrin) of the three parts (leaf, flower, and stem…

Phytochemicals of Euphorbia hirta L. and Their Inhibitory Potential Against SARS-CoV-2 Main Protease
Phytochemical components of E. hirta were investigated in silico for their potential to inhibit the severe acute respiratory syndrome-coronavirus-2 main protease (SARS-CoV-2 Mpro), a coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) drug target that plays a critical role in the infection process of SARS- CoV- 2.


Simultaneous analysis and peroxynitrite-scavenging activity of galloylated flavonoid glycosides and ellagic acid in Euphorbia supina
This work aimed to qualitatively and quantitatively analyze the polyphenols with peroxynitrite-scavenging activities of Euphorbia supina, used to treat hemorrhage, chronic bronchitis, hepatitis, jaundice, diarrhea, gastritis, and hemorrhoids as a medicinal herb.
Antidiabetic and antioxidant potentials of Euphorbia hirta leaves extract studied in streptozotocin-induced experimental diabetes in rats.
The antidiabetic and antioxidant potentials of E. hirta leaves in streptozotocin-induced experimental diabetes in rats were evaluated and the hypoglycemic activity of the leaves extract was comparable with gliclazide, a standard reference drug.
Antimalarial Flavonol Glycosides from Euphorbia hirta.
Bioassay-guided fractionation of the MeOH extracts of Euphorbia hirta showed proliferation inhibition of Plasmodium falciparum, but flavonol glycosides afzelin, quercitrin, and myricitrin exhibited little cytotoxic property against human epidermoid carcinoma KB 3-1 cells.
Specific and nonspecific immunostimulation study of Euphorbia hirta on Pseudomonas fluorescens-infected Cyprinus carpio
The results obtained show that the higher concentration of the extract provided significant immune response (specific and nonspecific) on the fish, and the researchers will guide the researchers for the discovery of significant aquaculture nutrients to improve the immunostimulant action on fish.
A molecular pharmacology study into the anti-inflammatory actions of Euphorbia hirta L. on the LPS-induced RAW 264.7 cells through selective iNOS protein inhibition
The extract of Euphorbia hirta L. and its component β-amyrin are able to block most of the iNOS protein functions and NO induction, and could therefore be new selective NO inhibitors with great potential in treating arthritis inflammation.
