Chemical characterization and acute and sub-acute toxicity study of Trikatu, a generic herbal formulation of Indian system of medicine, was carried out in Charles Foster (CF) rats for safety profiling. In acute toxicity experiment, Trikatu at 2,000 mg/kg body weight once orally was well tolerated by the experimental animals (both male and female) and no changes were observed in mortality, morbidity, gross pathology, gain in weight, vital organ weight, hematological (total white blood cells (WBC… Expand
Hepatoprotective Effects and Safety Evaluation of Coumarinolignoids Isolated from Cleome viscosa Seeds
TLDR
The coumarinolignoids were found to be effective as hepatoprotective against CCl4-induced hepatotoxicity as evidenced by in vivo and histopathological studies in small animals as well as acute oral toxicity studies in swiss albino mice. Expand
Reversal of CRF- and stress-induced anorexia by an ayurvedic formulation
TLDR
The study provides strong evidence of the synergistic action of Ayurvedic formulas and also proves the ability of Trikatu churna to reduce stress and CRF-induced anorexia. Expand
Evaluation of Cardiovascular Safety of Herbal Cough Syrup
TLDR
The Herbal Syrup is safe as an antitussive and reveals no significant cardiovascular toxicity, and overall results did not reveal any significant toxicity. Expand
Alcoholic Extract of Eclipta alba Shows In Vitro Antioxidant and Anticancer Activity without Exhibiting Toxicological Effects
TLDR
Eclipta alba has enormous potential in complementary and alternative medicine for the treatment of cancer and possesses robust in vitro antioxidant activity along with high total phenolic and flavonoid contents. Expand
Cytochrome P450 inhibitory potential and RP-HPLC standardization of trikatu--a Rasayana from Indian Ayurveda.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that trikatu has less interaction potential with drug metabolizing enzymes as compared to the positive control. Expand
Antibacterial and dermal toxicological profiles of ethyl acetate extract from Crassocephalum bauchiense (Hutch.) Milne-Redh (Asteraceae)
TLDR
Results indicate that the C. bauchiense ethyl acetate extract can be used safely for the treatment of some bacterial infections. Expand
Characterizing the human equivalent dose of herbal medicines in animal toxicity studies.
TLDR
The results provide important information regarding the safe dose of herbal medicines; thus, these data offer researchers and practitioners information critical for drug development or clinical application. Expand

TLDR
Indanone 1 exhibited in vivo anticancer activity against Erhlich ascites carcinoma in Swiss albino mice by inhibiting tumor growth by 54.3% at 50 mg/kg b.wt, thus exhibiting antiangiogenic activity. Expand
Pharmacological and phytochemical evaluation of Ocimum sanctum root extracts for its antiinflammatory, analgesic and antipyretic activities
TLDR
The present research revealed that STE possess anti-inflammatory, analgesic and anti-pyretic properties, however, future research is advocated to evaluate the pharmacological properties of isolated bioactive compounds. Expand

Safety evaluation of a standardized phytochemical composition extracted from Bacopa monnieri in Sprague--Dawley rats.
TLDR
BacoMind, an enriched phytochemical composition derived from Bacopa monnieri, a common medicinal plant having multiple uses in the traditional system of medicine and particularly used as a memory enhancing agent for centuries, was evaluated in a series of toxicity studies to confirm the safety of its usage. Expand
Toxicity studies in mice of common spices, Cinnamomum zeylanicum bark and Piper longum fruits
TLDR
Both of the extracts induced a significant increase in reproductive organ weights, sperm motility, sperm count and failed to illicit any spermatotoxic effect. Expand
Immunotoxicological effects of piperine in mice.
TLDR
Since the lowest dose of 1.12 mg of piperine per kg body weight had no immunotoxic effect, it may be considered as immunologically safe "no observed adverse effect level (NOAEL)" dose. Expand
Effect of trikatu, an Ayurvedic prescription, on the pharmacokinetic profile of rifampicin in rabbits.
TLDR
The results suggest that coadministration of trikatu does not influence the extent ofBioavailability (AUC0-infinity) but reduces the rate of bioavailability (Cmax) of rifampicin but this latter effect may reduce the efficacy of rIFampic in therapy. Expand
Reproductive toxicity of piperine in Swiss albino mice.
TLDR
The results show that piperine interferes with several crucial reproductive events in a mammalian model of Swiss albino mice. Expand
Acute and subacute toxicity of piperine in mice, rats and hamsters.
TLDR
Piperine is acutely toxic to mice, rats and hamsters and in subacute toxicity studies, the rats died within 1-3 days after treatment and the animals may be attributable to multiple dysfunctions in their organs. Expand
Influence of α‐tocopherol, propolis and piperine on therapeutic potential of tiferron against beryllium induced toxic manifestations
TLDR
It was concluded that all the combinations of tiferron and adjuvants played a beneficial role in reducing beryllium induced systemic toxicity at relatively lower doses and the combination of tifierron and propolis showed a more pronounced therapeutic potential. Expand
Pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic studies on interaction of "Trikatu" with diclofenac sodium.
TLDR
Experimental findings indicated that Trikatu pretreatment might decrease the bioavailability of certain drugs probably through a drug-herb interaction thereby adversely affecting the therapeutic efficacy of these drugs. Expand
Scientific evidence on the role of Ayurvedic herbals on bioavailability of drugs.
TLDR
It appears that the trikatu group of drugs increase bioavailability either by promoting rapid absorption from the gastrointestinal tract, or by protecting the drug from being metabolised/oxidised in its first passage through the liver after being absorbed,or by a combination of these two mechanisms.

Modulation of cadmium induced alterations in murine thymocytes by piperine: oxidative stress, apoptosis, phenotyping and blastogenesis.
TLDR
The study clearly demonstrated the anti-oxidative, anti-apoptotic, and restorative ability against cell proliferative mitogenic response and phenotypic alterations by piperine, suggesting its therapeutic usefulness in immunocompromised conditions. Expand
