Identification of five newly described bioactive chemical compounds in methanolic extract of Mentha viridis by using gas chromatography - mass spectrometry (GC-MS)

The bioactive compounds were screened by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) method. Twenty one bioactive phytochemical compounds were identified in the methanolic extract of Mentha viridis using GC-MS method. The identification of phytochemical compounds is based on the peak area, retention time, molecular weight and molecular formula. GC-MS analysis of M. viridis revealed the existence of the...

Analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects of the ethanol extract of Elytraria marginata Vahl (whole plant) in Wistar rats

The analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects of the ethanol extract of Elytraria marginata were studied using hot plate, thermal-induced pain and carrageenan-induced acute inflammation models in adult Wister rats. The preliminary phytochemical constituents of the extract were also ascertained. Inflammation was induced by injecting 0.1 ml of 1% carrageenan into the sub-planter surface of the right hind paw of the rats....
