Protective effects of ginger (Zingiber officinale Roscoe) against cadmium chloride-induced oxidative stress in the blood of rats

Cadmium is a heavy metal of wide occupational and environmental contamination. In recent years, however, cadmium has been implicated in the pathogenesis of several clinical disorders. Generation of oxidative stress is one of the plausible mechanisms for cadmium-induced diseases. The aim of the study was to investigate the effect of ginger on oxidative stress in rats exposed to cadmium (Cd) of a dose (10 mg/kg b.w.)....

Phytochemical screening and hypoglycemic effect of methanolic fruit pulp extract of Cucumis sativus in alloxan induced diabetic rats

Phytochemical screening and hypoglycemic effect of methanolic fruit pulp extract of Cucumis sativus on alloxan induced diabetic rats was investigated. The phytochemical analysis of the methanolic fruit pulp extract of C. sativus indicated the presence of saponins, glycosides, terpenes, phenolics, alkaloids, flavonoids, and tannins. The methanolic fruit pulp extract of C. sativus was administered orally to the alloxan...

Antioxidant activity of leaf and fruit extracts of Jordanian Rubus sanguineus Friv. (Rosaceae)

The in vitro antioxidant activity of crude ethanolic, methanolic and aqueous extracts of the leaf and fruit of Rubus sanguineus were investigated. The antioxidant activities were performed using 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) scavenging, nitrogen oxide (NO) scavenging, hydroxyl radical scavenging and lipid peroxidation. The methanolic, ethanolic and aqueous extracts of R. sanguineus fruit demonstrated higher...
