Abstract Background Isoespintanol is a monoterpene isolated from the leaves of Oxandra xylopioides Diels. (Annonaceae) with antioxidant and antiinflammatory effects. It was of interest to know whether it has antispasmodic effects such as other known drugs, phloroglucinol and trimethoxybenzene, used in therapeutics for treating biliary, urinary and uterine spasms. Purpose To assess whether isoespintanol possesses antispasmodic effects on intestine, uterus and bladder. Study design A preclinical s...

Abstract Ethnopharmacology relevance Blepharocalyx salicifolius (Kunth) O. Berg (Myrtaceae) is a tree native to Argentina and Uruguay that grows and is cultivated along the riverside of the Rio de la Plata. The leaves of this plant species, locally known as “anacahuita” are used in South America to prepare infusions for the empiric treatment of cough and bronchospasm, as well as diarrhoea and other intestinal disorders. Although previous phytochemical studies have been performed with the essenti...

Abstract Background The sweetener and hypoglycemic properties of stevioside (STV) are well known, as the main component of the plant Stevia rebaudiana . Given its extensive use in diabetic patients, it was of interest to evaluate its effects on the most frequent cardiovascular disease, the coronary insufficiency. Purpose To study whether STV could be cardioprotective against ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) in a model of “stunning” in rat hearts. Study design A preclinical study was performed in isola...

During ischemia and reperfusion (I/R) mitochondria suffer a deficiency to supply the cardiomyocyte with chemical energy, but also contribute to the cytosolic ionic alterations especially of Ca2+. Their free calcium concentration ([Ca2+]m) mainly depends on mitochondrial entrance through the uniporter (UCam) and extrusion in exchange with Na+ (mNCX) driven by the electrochemical gradient (ΔΨm). Cardiac energetic is frequently estimated by the oxygen consumption, which determines metabolism couple...
