Synopsis: 
The research study deals with the antibacterial and antifungal activities of compounds isolated from aerial parts of Gymnosporia royleana by using selected bacterial and fungal species and employing macrodilution method for determination of MIC.

ABSTRACT

Objective: In the present study, five new source compounds isolated from aerial parts of Gymnosporia royleana (G royleana) were screened for antibacterial and antifungal activities.

In-vivo Assessment of Antipyretic and Anti-inflammatory Activities of Gymnosporia royleana Extract in Mice

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.324
Pages: 
129–135
Synopsis: 
This research study deals with the screening of methanolic extract of Gymnosporia royleana for antipyretic and anti-inflammatory activities using reported models of brewer’s yeast induced pyrexia model and carrageenan-induced paw edema as well as xylene- induced ear edema models of mice.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Despite the presence of multitude of synthetic drugs against fever and inflammation, none has been proven entirely safe. In contrast, the accepted safety of plant derived natural products is inspiring the world. Based on this fact as well as in view of the diversified activities reported from the genus Gymnosporia, the present study was designed to evaluate the antipyretic and anti-inflammatory activity of Gymnosporia royleana (G royleana).

Antidiarrheal, Analgesic and Pediculicidal Activities of Gymnosporia royleana

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.100
Synopsis: 
The present study deals with the scientific validation of some of the important folk uses of Gymnosporia royleana like antidiarrheal, analgesic and pediculicidal uses, by employing castor oil-induced diarrhea, acetic acid-induced writhings, hot plate-induced pain and filter paper diffusion bioassay models.

ABSTRACT

Objective: In order to scientifically validate the folk uses, extracts of aerial parts of Gymnosporia royleana were screened for in-vivo antidiarrheal and analgesic activity and in-vitro pediculicidal activity.

In Vivo and in Vitro Pharmacological Evaluation of Gymnosporia Royleana

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.459
Pages: 
121–28
Synopsis: 
In the current investigation, we have made an effort to scientifically validate Gymnosporea royleana's traditional use in various pathological conditions such as antimicrobial, antidiabetic, antioxidant, anticancer and haemagglutination, which could be attributed to the phenolic content of the extract.
