On scorpion envenoming syndrome: Recent studies by our group have demonstrated the beneficial effect of the use of plant extracts in the local treatment of snakebite [ 13 ], but there are few studies exhibiting the effectiveness of such treatment in envenomation induced by scorpion sting [ 10141516 ].

These changes have been implicated in the severity of envenoming [ 15164041 ]. In the group treated with serum arachnid antivenom, the number of inflammatory cells surrounding the bronchi and bronchioles and the alveolar wall thickness presented a similar histomorphological appearance as the saline group.

The main results confirmed its anti-inflammatory effect in two models of peritonitis at all doses tested 2, 2.

Previous studies evaluated the anti-inflammatory activity of plants in carrageenan-induced peritonitis assay in murine model, with the aim of assessing the activity of isolated compounds [ 2728 ]. After 12 h, the medium was replaced by the aqueous extract at concentrations ranging from 0. Scientific Name Synonyms Macaglia pyrifolia Mart.

The aim of this approach was to evaluate in vivo the ability of the aqueous extract of A. Both exhibit similar mass spectrum but disagree with the retention time [ 29 ]. It was found that the treatment with rutin and aqueous extracts decreased the cell inflammation and yielded histological findings similar to the control group and the SAAV-treated group, corroborating the results of peritoneal infiltration shown in the present study. Biological and cytotoxic effects.


The use of T. Grain This timber usually has straight or interlocked grain.

The Handbook of Natural Flavonoids. Effect of venom dose on inflammatory response in envenomation-induced peritonitis model in mice. In the current study, mainly the presence of flavonoids and phenolic acids were investigated.

Then, the medium was replaced by serum-free medium for synchronizing the cell cycle in G0 pyriifolium. Table 1 summarizes the anti-inflammatory activity of aqueous extract and rutin in carrageenan-induced peritonitis model.

After 4 h, MTT was removed, ethanol P. The need for full integration of snakebite envenoming within a global strategy to combat the neglected tropical diseases: The pathogenesis of this edema is very complex, therefore, envenomation by this species can be severe, and deaths are often caused by acute pulmonary edema [ 56 ].

Antitumor aspidosprema of laticifer proteins of Himatanthus drasticus Mart.

Acknowledgments The authors acknowledge all participants for their valuable time and commitment to the study. A saline intraperitoneal and saline intravenous ; B VTs intraperitoneal and saline intravenous ; and C — H animals treated intravenous with: Find articles by Ruth Aspidodperma Oliveira.

In part, these clinical manifestations may be observed by the presence of neurotoxic components in the venom which interact with sodium and potassium channels in nerve endings [ 78 ]. It was used a split with the column eluent at a ratio of 7: The solvents used were HPLC-grade and ultra-pure water.

Evaluating the possible genotoxic, mutagenic and tumor cell proliferation-inhibition effects of a non-anticoagulant, but antithrombotic algal heterofucan. Two extracts and two fractions tested in vivo caused a significant reduction aspidosprma P.

Further assays should be done to verify if the extract may present cytotoxic activity against tumor cells, as observed in Himatanthus drasticusa medicinal plant from the same family, of which the uses in traditional medicine are supported by reports of its uses in cancer treatment, as an anti-inflammatory medication, and to stimulate the immune system [ 32 ].


The peritoneal cell infiltration was analyzed after 6 h. Problems of medical ethics and accountability in medical research in India.

Enzymatic properties of venoms from Brazilian scorpions of Tityus genus and the neutralisation potential of therapeutical antivenoms. Luster It is reported to be high in luster. Compounds 67 and 8 correspond to chlorogenic acid isomers, n -chlogenic, crypto-chlorogenic and iso-chlorogenic acid, respectively.

Cell Pyifolium The cell viability of the 3T3 cells was analyzed after 48 and 72 h of incubation with aqueous extract of A.

Five animals were used in each group. The rutin show numerous interesting biological activities, for example, antioxidant capacity, anti-inflammatory action and stimulation of the immune system [ 2324 ].

Several mechanisms are involved in the systemic manifestations pyrivolium by the venom of T. Aqueous extract of A.

Previous studies of chemical composition of A. In conclusion, this approach demonstrated purifolium aqueous extracts of A. The extract and rutin showed a reduction in the cell migration into the peritoneal cavity, and in the same way sspidosperma envenomated animals also showed reduction of edema, inflammatory cell infiltration and vasodilation in lungs.

Advances in flavonoids research since The following parameters were assessed for the histopathological analyses: Investigation of cytotoxic, apoptosis-inducing, genotoxic and protective effects of purifolium flavonoid rutin in HTC hepatic cells. The data also confirm the presence of the flavonoid and phenolic acids in the plant. Carrageenan is a standard phlogistic agent, which induces inflammatory responses, such as infiltration of inflammatory cells, release of inflammatory mediators, increase in capillary permeability and peritonitis [ 3738 ].
