The leaves of Spilanthes acmella Murr. have been used traditionally as tonic and in the treatment of rheumatism, gout, sailagogine and claimed to possess immunostimulant activity. In the present study, the ethanolic extract (500mg/kg bwt p.o.) of its leaves was evaluated for immunomodulatory activity using various models like modulation of macrophage function (morphometric and functional changes in mice), carbon clearance assay with the help of Indian ink dispersion (0.5ml/100g bwt i.v.) in…

It is concluded that Andrographis paniculata exhibited best immunostimulant potential, indicating that it has promising immunomodulatory activity, as proposed from commercial point of view.

Immunomodulation Potential of Andrographis Paniculata and Tinospora Cordifolia Methanolic Extracts in Combination Forms

Results suggest that although all the five tested combinations prepared using different proportion of methanol extracts of A. paniculata and T. cordifolia showed a significant increase in macrophase count, neutrophil adhesion, haemagglutinating antibody titre and delayed type hypersensitivity response, combination DC-II exhibited best immunostimulant potential, indicating that it has promising immunomodulatory activity.

Intestinal cestodes of chicken are effectively killed by quinoline-rich extract of Spilanthes acmella

The efficacy of S. acmella extract and structural damages it caused on the cestode indicates that it is a potential source of anthelmintic agent and that 2,2,4-trimethyl-1,2-dihydroquinoline contributes to its antiparasitic activity.

Phytochemical investigations on the medicinal plant Acmella oleracea cultivated in Mizoram , India

Species of the genus Acmella are perennial plants and are well known as traditional medicines and as vegetables in tropical regions. Of these, A. oleracea (L.) R.K. Jansen is the most widely used,

Evaluation of the effectiveness of Acmella uliginosa (Sw.) Cass. flower methanolic extract in pain amelioration and memory impairment in the experimental rat models: Search for an alternative remedy over opioid painkillers

The results indicate that the AU flower methanolic extract qualifies as a potent painkiller and overcomes the disadvantages of opioid analgesics.

Assessment of anti-inflammatory and anti-arthritic properties of Acmella uliginosa (Sw.) Cass. based on experiments in arthritic rat models and qualitative gas chromatography-mass spectrometry analyses

The findings indicated that the crude flower homogenate of AU contains potential anti- inflammatory compounds which could be used as an anti-inflammatory/anti-arthritic medication.

Chemical composition and broad-spectrum anthelmintic activity of a cultivar of toothache plant, Acmella oleracea, from Mizoram, India

Acmella oleracea contains important bioactive compounds, which are responsible for the broad-spectrum anthelmintic activity on intestinal parasites, and is used by the Mizo people of India and Myanmar for intestinal helminthiasis.

Anthelmintic activity of praziquantel and Spilanthes acmella extract on an intestinal cestode parasite

Findings indicate that S. acmella is a good source of compounds with anthelmintic activity, and that PZQ was more potent, but the plant extract was also effective at all concentrations tested.



The Essential Oil of Spilanthes acmella Murr.

ABSTRACT Eighteen compounds have been characterized by GC/MS and Kovats indices in the essential oil of Spilanthes acmella. The major constituents identified were β-caryophyllene (30.2%), γ-cadinene

Analysis of the free amino acid content in pollen of nine Asteraceae species of known allergenic activity.

The study reports the free amino acid composition of the pollen of nine members of the family Asteraceae, i.e. Ageratum conyzoides, Gnaphalium indicum, Mikania scandens Willd, Parthenium hysterophorus, Spilanthes acmella Murr, Vernonia cinerea (L.) Lees, and Xanthium strumarium by thin layer chromatography.

Preliminary studies on the immunomodulatory and antioxidant properties of Selaginella species

Out of the three Selaginella species studied, the water extract of S. involvens has promising thymus growth stimulatory activity in adult mice and remarkable antilipid peroxidation property; these observations are of interest in view of tribal and folklore belief that this plant prolongs life span.
