    ABSTRACT: The Seed Oil of Balanites aegyptiaca L. (Del) Zygophyllaceae was tested for its inhibitory activity against lethal and inflammatory effect of Vipera russellii (Russell’s viper) venom. The seed oil of the plant displayed significant inhibitory action against the lethal toxic and inflammatory effects of the viper venom. The present findings suggest that the seed oil of Balanites aegyptiaca possess compound(s) which inhibit the lethal and inflammatory effects of viper venom.

    ABSTRACT: Aloe vera (L.) Burm. f. (Family Liliaceae) is an evergreen perennial succulent plant widely used from antiquity. Aloe vera contains various carbohydrate polymers, notably glucomannans, along with a range of other organic and inorganic components. Phenolic compounds have been identified so far as chromone, anthraquinone or anthrone derivatives. Three distinct preparations of aloe plants are mostly used in medicinal practices that are quite different in their chemical composition and their therapeutic properties, aloe latex (aloe); aloe gel (Aloe vera); and, aloe whole leaf (aloe extract). Aloe latex is used for its laxative effect; aloe gel is used topically for skin ailments, such as wound healing, psoriasis, genital herpes and internally by oral administration in diabetic and hyperlipidaemic patients and to heal gastric ulcers; and, aloe extract is potentially useful for cancer and AIDS. Aloe vera possesses several pharmacological properties such as promoting and healing wound and burn, frost-bite healing, with addition to having antiinflammatory, antifungal, hypoglycemic and gastroprotective properties. This review explored the phytochemical and pharmacological knowledge as well as several promising aspects for research on aloe.

    ABSTRACT: Speed of healing is an important factor in wound healing. It is very important to find the natural drug that decrease this time. In current study effect of essential oil of Achillea millefolium on wound healing in 60 male chickens was study as a model for wound healing. Different concentration of essential oil of Achillea millefolium tested topically on full thickness excision wound with 25 mm diameter compared to phenytoin cream (1%) as a standard healing agent and geometrical study were done for 6 days. Result of this study show that higher concentrations (12% and 18%) have significant healing properties on chicken’s wound. Treated groups with higher concentrations and also positive control group that treated with phenytoin cream have significant differences with negative controls and lower concentrations (1% and 6%). This study and same studies can help us to find the natural alternative components for wound healing without any side effects. Keywords: Achillea millefolium, chicken, essential oil, wound healing

    ABSTRACT: Lycium barbarum L. Solanaceae a traditional medicinal plant of China has been accorded a very high safety value. It has been known to possess various benefi cial effects like reducti on of blood glucose and serum lipids in alloxan-induced diabetes models, anti-ageing, immuno-modulating, anti-cancer, anti-fatigue, and male fertility-facilitatory actions. The present study is an attempt to explore the hypolipidemic effects of powdered L. barbarum in high fat diet-induced model of hyperlipidemia. Powdered L. barbarum fruit extract (250mg/kg and 500mg/kg) was administered to Wistar albino rats fed on a cholesterol-rich high-fat diet for 45 days. The effects were compared with the standard drug atorvastatin (10 mg/kg/day, oral). After 30 days of treatment, the lipid profile of the blood samples of the experimental rodents was evaluated. The data presented as mean±SEM were analysed using one-way ANOVA followed by Tukey's post hoc test. P<0.05 was considered as statistically significant. In the present study, L. barbarum powdered extract showed a significant reduction in the total cholesterol, triglycerides and very low density lipoprotein-cholesterol levels at both the doses employed (p<0.05). However, reduction in low density lipoprotein-cholesterol levels was significant (p<0.05) only at the dose of 500 mg/kg when compared to the standard drug group. The increase in high-density lipoprotein levels was significant only at 250 mg/kg. The data thus suggests the positive anti-hyperlipidemic activity of L. barbarum in high fat diet-induced hyperlipidemia in rats.
