  1. Compounds from Lactobacillus plantarum culture supernatants with potential pro-healing and anti-pathogenic properties in skin chronic wounds...

    Pharmaceutical Biology 53(3):350 (2015) PMID 25347359

    We demonstrated that topical applications of Lactobacillus plantarum culture supernatants (LAPS) on human-infected chronic wounds reduce the pathogenic bioburden, the amount of necrotic tissue, and the wound area, as well as promote debridement, granulation tissue, and wound healing. To study LAPS c...
  2. Mangiferin activates the Nrf2-ARE pathway and reduces etoposide-induced DNA damage in human umbilical cord mononuclear blood cells.

    Pharmaceutical Biology 53(4):503 (2015) PMID 25380307

    We found that mangiferin treatment significantly reduced DNA damage in etoposide-treated MNCs, which was verified by decreased olive tail moment (OTM) and micronucleus (MN) frequency. Mangiferin treatment significantly promoted Nrf2 translocation into the nucleus and increased nuclear Nrf2 expressio...
  3. Antidiabetic, antioxidant, and TNF-α lowering properties of extract of the traditionally used plant Ixeris gracilis in alloxan-induced diabe...

    Pharmaceutical Biology 53(4):494 (2015) PMID 25474076

    Abstract Context: Ixeris gracilis DC. Stebbins (Asteraceae) is a plant considered to be medicinal by local communities of Meghalaya, India. To evaluate the antidiabetic potential, antioxidant activity, and effect of the 80% methanolic extract of the leaves of Ixeris gracilis on tumor necrosis factor...
  4. Genoprotective effects of Origanum vulgare ethanolic extract against cyclophosphamide-induced genotoxicity in mouse bone marrow cells.

    Pharmaceutical Biology 53(1):92 (2015) PMID 25519883

    Cyclophosphamide (CP), an alkylating chemotherapeutic agent, can bind DNA, causing chromosome breaks, micronucleus (Mn) formation, and cell death. Because Origanum vulgare L. (Lamiaceae) has antioxidative properties, it might protect against DNA damage. The genoprotective effect of O. vulgare ethano...
  5. Evaluation of antidiabetic properties of cactus pear seed oil in rats.

    Pharmaceutical Biology 52(10):1286 (2014) PMID 25026333

    Cactus pear (Opuntia ficus-indica (L.) Mill. (Cactaceae)) is a medicinal plant widely used to treat diabetes. This work investigates the hypoglycemic and antihyperglycemic effect of cactus pear seed oil (CPSO), its mechanism of action, and any toxic effects. The hypoglycemic effect of CPSO was evalu...
  6. α-Glucosidase inhibition, 15-lipoxygenase inhibition, and brine shrimp toxicity of extracts and isolated compounds from Terminalia macropter...

    Pharmaceutical Biology 52(9):1166 (2014) PMID 24635511

    Terminalia macroptera Guill. & Perr. (Combretaceae), a tree that grows in West Africa, has been used in traditional medicine against a variety of diseases such as hepatitis, gonorrhea, skin diseases, and diabetes. To investigate enzyme inhibitory activity against α-glucosidase and 15-lipoxygenase (1...
  7. Ardisiphenol D, a resorcinol derivative identified from Ardisia brevicaulis, exerts antitumor effect through inducing apoptosis in human non...

    Pharmaceutical Biology 52(7):797 (2014) PMID 24392814

    We have isolated and identified some chemical constituents from this plant. Furthermore, these compounds showed significant inhibition of the proliferation of human pancreatic PANC-1, human lung A549, human gastrointestinal carcinoma SGC 7901, human breast MCF-7, and human prostate PC-3 cancer cells...

  9. Nature cures nature: Hypericum perforatum attenuates physical withdrawal signs in opium dependent rats.

    Pharmaceutical Biology 52(5):586 (2014) PMID 24256159

    Hypericum perforatum Linn. (Hypericaceae) (St. John's wort) attenuates opium withdrawal signs. To explore the therapeutic potential of Hypericum perforatum in the management of opium-induced withdrawal syndrome. The effect of the Hypericum perforatum hydro-ethanol extract was investigated for potent...
  10. An LC-MS/MS method for the determination of salidroside and its metabolite p-tyrosol in rat liver tissues.

    Pharmaceutical Biology 52(5):637 (2014) PMID 24479765

    Salidroside and its metabolite p-tyrosol are two major phenols in the genus Rhodiola L. (Crassulaceae). They have been confirmed to possess various pharmacological properties and are used for the prophylaxis and therapeutics of many diseases. Several analytical methods have been developed for the de...
