[ 1 ] - Protective effect of silymarin against chemical-induced cardiotoxicity

Cardiac disorders remain one of the most important causes of death in the world. Oxidative stress has been suggested as one of the molecular mechanisms involved in drug-induced cardiac toxicity. Recently, several natural products have been utilized in different studies with the aim to protect the progression of oxidative stress-induced cardiac disorders. There is a large body of evidence that a...

[ 2 ] - Effects of silymarin on neuropathic pain and formalin-induced nociception in mice

Objective(s):Based on the previous reports, silymarin can suppress nitric oxide, prostaglandin E2 (PGE2), leukotrienes, cytokines production, and neutrophils infiltration. Regarding the fact that inflammation plays an important role in neuropathic and formalin-induced pain, it was assumed that silymarin could reduce pain. The present study investigates the analgesic effects of silymarin in chem...

[ 3 ] - “Silymarin”, a Promising Pharmacological Agent for Treatment of Diseases

Widespread use of herbal drugs because of their protective effects on different organs toxicity has been shown in many studies. These protective effects have been illustrated in the fields of nephrotoxicity, hepatotoxicity, viral hepatitis, cancer, in vitro fertilization, neurotoxicity, depression, lung diseases, prostate diseases etc. Silymarin has cytoprotection activities due to its antioxid...

[ 4 ] - Effect of Curcumin on Doxorubicin-induced Cytotoxicity in H9c2 Cardiomyoblast Cells

Objective(s) Doxorubicin (DOX), a widely used chemotherapeutic agent can give rise to serve cardiotoxicity by inducing apoptosis. Curcumin, the active compound of the rhizome of Curcuma longa L. has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-proliferative activities. Curcumin has been identified to increase cytotoxicity in several cancer cell lines in combination with DOX, but there is no study a...

[ 5 ] - Antinociceptive Effect of Elaeagnus angustifolia Fruits on Sciatic Nerve Ligated Mice

Objective(s) The role of Elaeagnus angustifolia fruit as an analgesic agent in acute pain has been proved earlier. In this study, the effects of aqueous extracts of three parts of this fruit (pericarp, medulla and seed) on chronic pain were investigated in mice. Materials and Methods A partial nerve injury was made using a tight ligature around the sciatic nerve, then doses (0.5, 1, 1.5 g/kg...

[ 6 ] - Protective Effect of Aqueous and Ethanolic Extracts of Portulaca Oleracea Against Cisplatin Induced Nephrotoxicity

Objective(s) Portulaca oleracea L. is a herbaceous weed from portulacaceae family. It can be found in many parts of the world. Modern pharmacological studies have demonstrated that P. oleracea have antioxidant effects. The protective effect of aqueous and ethanolic extract of P. oleracea against cisplatin-induced renal toxicity was studied in rats. Materials and Methods Single intraperitonea...

[ 7 ] - Effect of Portulaca oleraceae L. extracts on the Morphine Dependence in Mice

ObjectiveThis study was initiated to investigate the effect of Portulaca oleraceae on morphine dependence in mice.Materials and MethodsDependence was induced using the subcutaneous injections of morphine for 3 days. On the day 4, morphineinjected 2 h prior to intraperitoneal injection of naloxone. The plant extracts ethanolic or aqueousadministered 0.5 h before the final dose of morphine. The n...
