Chemical Constituents of Sandbox Tree (Hura crepitans Linn.) and Anti-hepatotoxic Activity of the Leaves and Stem Bark Extracts

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.247
Synopsis: 
Daphnetoxin acid, huratoxin, apocynin and methylpentadecanoate were obtained by chromatographic and spectroscopy analysis of Hura crepitans leaves and stem bark. Protection of hepatic cells was observed by determining biochemical parameters in the anti-hepatotoxic study, using carbon tetrachloride-induced rats.

A Comparative In Vitro Study on the Antioxidant and Anti-acetylcholinesterase Properties of Aerial Parts of Strophanthus preusii Engl & Pax

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2013.287
Pages: 
408–15
Synopsis: 
The leaves and root of Strophanthus preusii have proven to be potent natural antioxidants which could justify their traditional use in the management of stress-related diseases.

 ABSTRACT

Objective: To evaluate and compare the antioxidant and acetylcholinesterase (AChE)-inhibitory properties of aerial parts of Strophanthus preussii (leaves, stem and root named as SPL, SPS and SPR, respectively) while catechin served as standard.

Effect of Moderate Ethanol Administration on Biochemical Indices in Streptozotocin-diabetic Wistar Rats

Issue: 
Pages: 
3–9
Synopsis: 
Moderate ethanol administration did not affect fasting blood glugose and HbA1c, but altered the lipid profile of streptozotocin-diabetic rats. Moderate ethanol intake may further increase the risk of complications in diabetes.

 

ABSTRACT

Objective: This study was designed to evaluate the effect of moderate ethanol administration on the biochemical indices in streptozotocin (STZ)-diabetic rats.
