Ann Med Biomed Sci. Anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antifungal activity of Chuquiraga spinosa. Phytochemical constituents of the ethanolic extract of Chuquiraga spinosa. Dry, arid areas, with long drought periods of 6 – 10 months. Chuquirsga spinosa is an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant agent and may have a protective effect for cancer.

His expertise is biochemical studies and the use of animal models to discover new potential drugs. Data were analyzed by using SPSS v. This study includes an Animal model and add to understand human pathology but can be extrapolated to human beings in the future.

Precipitations of mm – mm.

This study evaluated the antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antifungal activities of C. The slides were examined under a light microscope Olympus BX Experimental design 30 males Holtzman rats were divided into five groups of 6 rats each.



He is working with animal models to discover new drugs with different effects on nervous systems. Considering the anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anticancer properties of Chuquiraga spinosa extract, we conclude that it has a protective effect on NMU induced gastric cancer in rats.

Permissions beyond the scope of this license may be available with cbuquiraga phcog. One-way analysis of variance ANOVA followed by Tukey multiple comparison method was carried out to compare the mean value of different groups. Moderated dysplasia was found in all groups treated with NMU.

In regard to weights of experimental animals a significant increase of body weight was found in all groups treated with ChS. Phylogeny of Chuquiraga sect. Cite This Article Vancouver Style:: The protective effect was determined through weights as well as biochemical, hematological; the antioxidant capacity by superoxide dismutase SOD14 nitric oxide NO15 malondialdehyde MDA 16 and the anti-inflammatory capacity by the level of C-reactive protein CRP. His expertise is Natural products with anticancer properties, pharmacokinetic studies and the use of animals models to discover new potential drugs as antitumor.

A rapid, simple spectrophotometric method for simultaneous detection of nitrate and nitrite.



There is a great potential to develop Chuquiraga spinosa as an alternative therapeutic agent in gastric cancer treatment, and hence further studies are needed, particularly clinical studies, to further evaluate this effect. All the extracts showed high antioxidant activity, and there was correlation between the activity and total polyphenolic compounds.

Retrieved from ” https: The Botanical Review 68 1 Jpn J Cancer Res. Preliminary phytochemical analysis revealed the presence of phenolic compounds, flavonoids, alkaloids, triterpenes and steroids. The northern limit of the hummingbird genus Oreotrochilus in South America. His expertise is Natural products with chuquieaga properties and the use of animal models to discover new potential drugs. This method leads to a quick and peaceful death, acceptable for rats.

Senecio subdiscoideus Senecio trifurcatus Senecio vulgaris Senecio zoellneri Siegesbeckia sp. Currently, He has a master in experimental pharmacology. Image of Chuquiraga spinosa subsp. The correlation between these results and total polyphenolic content was determined by Pearson’s Correlation Coefficient.
