Allophylus cobbe (L.) Raeusch. belonging to the family Sapindaceae, is a commonly distributed small shrub in Western Ghats of India previously reported for its traditional medicinal properties. It is used for the treatment of various ailments. The present study is aimed at investigating preliminary phytochemicals, inducing the determination of the total phenolic contents, antioxidant assays and anticancer activity of A. cobbe leaf extracts on (DU-145) and (PC-3) cell lines. Preliminary phytochemical screening showed a broad spectrum of secondary metabolites. Highest amount of phenolic content was present in aqueous extract (91.96 ± 0.61 mg/g GAE) and it also proved to have the most potent antioxidant activity at a concentration of 100 mg/ml (64.71 ± 0.15%). IC50 value was (431.10 ± 15.05 µg/mL) for DU-145 and (362.08 ± 24.17 µg/mL) for PC-3 cell lines while the standard drug paclitaxel showed an IC50 value of 0.3 µM/mL. Morphological changes was observed in cancerous cells undergoing apoptosis in human prostate cancer cell lines (DU-145 and PC-3) while the extract showed no cytotoxicity towards normal cells (MEF-L929). It can be concluded that the tested extracts holds significant antioxidant and anticancer activities. However further investigation on lead compounds of A. cobbe will enable its therapeutic use.

Allophylus cobbe is a small tree and an ethnomedicinally important plant species belonging to the family Sapindaceae, traditionally used to treat various ailments. Previous work on the species led to show ethanolic extracts to be active against Ranikhet disease virus and have showed effects on central nervous system and hypothermia. However, literature on its polyphenolic content, antioxidant and antimicrobial activity is inadequate. Because of its wide use in traditional medicine, it was decide...

Herpes zoster is a reactivated varicella-zoster virus (VZV) infection of the sensory nerve ganglion, peripheral nerve, and its branches. Mechanical trauma to the nervous system can reactivate VZV. It is well known that extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (SWL) can produce mechanical damage to the tissue. We report a rare case of herpes zoster reactivation after SWL for treatment of 1.2 cm size renal stone in a 63-year-old male patient.

Introduction: The incidence of prostate cancer has shown significant variation across the globe. Though the prevalence and characteristics of this disease have been extensively studied in many countries, data regarding the true incidence of prostate cancer in India is limited. Materials and Methods: MEDLINE publications from 1990 to 2014 were searched and reviewed and compiled to assess the demographic profile of prostate cancer in India and characteristics unique to this disease in India. Resul...

The strychnine tree (Strychnos nux-vomica L.) (S. nux-vomica) belonging to family Loganiaceae has been a very promising medication for certain disorders. Different chromatographic methods were used to isolate the phenolic compounds from the aqueous methanolic extract of the S. nux-vomica leaves. Their identification was achieved through spectroscopic techniques. Cytotoxicity, analgesic, antipyretic and anti-inflammatory activities of S. nux-vomica leaves extract were evaluated. Five phenolic com...

Data from national cancer registries shows that incidence of certain cancers are on rise in India. The cancers which are showing significant increase in incidence rates include prostate, mouth and kidney among male population, corpus uteri, breast and thyroid among female population and lung cancer in both male and female populations. In the present review article we have focused on epidemiology of prostate cancer in Indian subcontinent in terms of incidence, survival, and mortality etc. The art...

The objective of this study was to determine the in vitro osteogenic activities of selected medicinal plants used traditionally in India. The compounds isolated from three plants viz. Allophylus serratus, Cissus quadrangularis and Vitex negundo were evaluated for their in vitro osteogenic activities. Primary cultures of osteoblasts were used to determine the effects of these components on osteoblast functions. Five (4, 6, 9, 12 and 14) of the fourteen compounds isolated led to increase in osteob...

Prostate cancer is the main cause of cancer-related mortality in men around the world and an important health problem. DU-145 human prostate cancer cells provide an opportunity to investigate prostate cancer. Betaine has a number of anticancer effects, such as inactivation of carcinogens, inhibition of cancer cell proliferation, angiogenesis, and metastasis. However, there is no study investigating the effects of betaine on DU-145 cells. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of diffe...
