Effects of millet on calcium oxalate crystal growth and dissolution

The influence of aqueous extract of millet on the crystallization and the dissolution of calcium oxalate (CaOx) crystals were investigated in detail under supersaturated and artificial urinary circumstances in order to understand the effect of the water-soluble components of millet on CaOx kidney stones in humans. To investigate the inhibition effect, different volumes of millet extract were added separately to the...

Phytochemical screening and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry analysis of Euphorbia ingens organic root extract

Euphorbia ingens is a woody, succulent tree with ethnomedicinal applications; however, its chemical constituents are not well documented. This study determined the phytochemical profile of Euphorbia ingens dichloromethane-methanol root bark extract. Following sample collection and preparation, extraction was done using the cold percolation technique. This was followed by qualitative phytochemical screening and gas...
