  • Analysis of the Anti-inflammatory and Antioxidant Potential of the
           Fractions Obtained From the Ethyl Acetate Partition of the Leaves of
           Diplopterys Pubipetala

    • Authors: Clarice Avelar Almeida, Flavia Dayrell Franca, Miriam Martins Chaves, Kamylla Teixiera Santos, Maria Clara Ferreira Santos, Elytania Veiga Menezes, Sandra de Sousa Araujo, Cleiber Lucan Alves Araujo, Vanessa de Andrade Royo
      Pages: 1 - 11
      Abstract: Aims: The objective of this work was to analyze the anti-inflammatory, cytotoxic and antioxidant activity of the fractions of ethyl acetate from the leaves of D. pubipetala. Methodology: Liquid-liquid partitioning was performed, the ethyl acetate partition was eluted in classical liquid chromatography, followed by thin layer chromatography. Antioxidant activity was performed by the DPPH photochlorimetric method and the levels of interleukin (IL‑6), tumor necrosis factor α (TNF‑α), interleukin-10 (IL-10) and nitric oxide (NO) were identified in supernatants of cell cultures. Results: Fractions F4, F5 and F10 showed antioxidant activity. The F10 fraction indicated efficient anti-inflammatory activity by the production of IL-10 and nitric oxides. Fractions F4, F5 and F9 stimulated the production of IL-6 and TNF-α. Conclusion: These results indicate a possible synergistic action of the extract and the partition of ethyl acetate, since after fractionation the potential presented in previous studies was lower.

  • Ethnomedicinal Study of Plants Used for Treatment of Diabetes,
           Hypertension and Cardiovascular Ailments in Fokoue and Santchou
           Subdivisions, Menoua Division of West Cameroon

    • Authors: Rui Zhang, Kaat Verzelen, Roger Tsobou, Wouter Vanhove, Victor François Nguetsop, Patrick Van Damme
      Pages: 12 - 30
      Abstract: Background: In Cameroon, numerous people rely on medicinal plants and possess knowledge on the use of these plants. Plant knowledge from indigenous people is rapidly disappearing due to environmental, social and economic pressure, processes and changes. In view of this, ethnobotanical studies have been carried out in the area where medicinal plants are the main source of health care in order to preserve traditional knowledge of plant use. This study aims to document and quantify medicinal plant knowledge on the treatment of diabetes, hypertension and cardiovascular ailments in Fokoue and Santchou subdivisions of Menoua Division, West Cameroon. Methods: Information related to medicinal plant species and plant remedies was collected through semi-structured interviews with 34 informants accompanied by homegarden sampling, walk-in-the-woods and snowball sampling. Quantitative methods were used to determine cultural importance index, relative frequency of citation and fidelity level which represent informants’ consensus. Results: A total of 49 medicinal plant species representing 26 different botanical families were recorded in Fokoue and Santchou subdivisions of Menoua Division, West Cameroon.  Most-cited plant families were Acanthaceae, Amaryllidaceae, Apocynaceae, Asteraceae, Lamiaceae, Poaceae and Rhamnaceae. Plant species Allium sativum, Aloe vera, Asystasia spp., Cymbopogon citratus, Gouania spp., Persea americana, Sonchus oleraceus and Vernonia amygdalina were considered as relatively important plants for treating diabetes, hypertension and cardiovascular ailments. Conclusions: The study indicated the unique knowledge of medicinal plants used for treating diabetes, hypertension and cardiovascular ailments in Fokoue and Santchou subdivisions. Our findings not only confirm uses of medicinal plants documented elsewhere, but also add interesting new information that should be confirmed through formal biochemical analysis and clinical trials.

  • Alpha (α)-amylase Inhibitory Property of Anthocleista nobilis Leaf

    • Authors: Kwabena Dabie, Felix Adulley, Boansi Adu Ababio, Emmanuel Peprah Yamoah, Elizabeth Owusuaa
      Pages: 31 - 39
      Abstract: Aims: Alpha (α)-amylase inhibitors from plants are preferable for type 2 diabetes treatment because of their relative potency and safety. This study examined, in vitro, the inhibitory effect of Anthocleista nobilis leaf extract on starch hydrolysis catalyzed by α -amylase (extracted from moated sorghum).  Place and Duration of Study: Department of Biochemistry (School of Biological Sciences) and Department of Chemistry, School of Physical Sciences, University of Cape Coast, Ghana, between June 2021 and August 2021. Methodology: Leaves of A. nobilis were air-dried, pulverized, and macerated in 70% aqueous ethanol for 72 hrs. The filtrate was concentrated and reconstituted in 0.02M Sodium phosphate buffer (pH 6.9) for further analysis including Phytoconstituents screening. In vitro analysis of α -amylase activity as well as inhibitory effect of A. nobilis extract on α -amylase was performed. The Lineweaver-Burk plot was employed in the inhibition analysis to determine the inhibition type, maximum initial reaction rate (Vmax), as well as the Michaelis constant (KM). Results: The percentage inhibition of α-amylase ranged from 25.0 ± 0.46% - 85.7 ± 2.17% for 0.1mg/mL and 0.9mg/mL of the A. nobilis leaf extract respectively. The mode of α-amylase inhibition was found from the Lineweaver-Burk plot as mixed noncompetitive. The KM and Vmax were determined as 0.2043 mM and 0.1282 mM/min respectively. In contrast, KM for the control were 0.1537mM and Vmax of 0.09750 mM/min. The inhibition property of A. nobilis could be attributed to its phytochemicals such as flavonoids, saponins, alkaloids, tannins, and terpenoids that were present. Conclusion: Anthocleista Nobilis leaf extract contains certain naturally occurring anti-diabetic compounds and could be explored for treating type 2 diabetic patients. These findings, however, need further work to validate the exact bioactive constituents responsible for the inhibitory effect.

      Abstract: Traditional medicine covers the rescue of the methodologies and techniques of cure, therapy, and prevention of diseases using medicinal plants. The objective of this paper is to conduct a literature review on the use of herbal medicines in skin treatment. The methodology used was a literature review conducted between 2015 and 2022 in national journals. The databases used were Google Scholar, SciELO, VHL, PubMed, and LILACS, using the following descriptors: "use of herbal medicines in skin treatments", "herbal medicines in skin treatments" and, "phytotherapy". The most commonly used medicinal plants were babosas (Aloe vera L.), arnica (Arnica acaulis L.), and barbatimão (Stryphnodendron adstringens (Mart.) Coville), confrei (Symphytum officinale L.), calendula (Calendula arvensis L.) and melaleuca (Melaleuca alternifolia L.). The most commonly used parts were leaves and bark, and infusion (tea) was the most commonly used preparation method. Most of the medicinal plants cited have their healing power evidenced by the scientific literature, thus favoring the quality of life of the individual who uses them. Thus, this article, obtained expressive results for human health, moreover, they establish an important step of bioprospecting, assisting in the choice of target plants for pharmacological verifications.

  • Anti-hyperglycaemic Effects of the Ashes of Some Nigerian Anti-diabetic
           Ethnomedicinal Plants

    • Authors: Abdulrasheed Ajao Abdullahi, Adeleke Clement Adebajo, Marcus Durojaye Ayoola, Samuel Akintunde Odediran, Babatope Ayodeji Kolawole
      Pages: 50 - 63
      Abstract: Aims: To evaluate blood glucose-lowering ability of leaf ashes and compare anti-hyperglycaemic activities of Annona muricata leaf extract and ash. Study Design: Ashes and extract of medicinal plants were assayed using glucose-loaded rats model. Place and Duration of Study: Department of Pharmacognosy, Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Nigeria, between March 2017 and February 2020. Methodology: Adequately prepared ashes of seven plants and A. muricata methanol extract were assayed for anti-hyperglycaemic potentials, using glucose-loaded (10 g/kg, p.o.) Wistar rats that were hyperglycaemic [blood glucose levels ≥ 7.0 mmol/L] thirty minutes thereafter (T0.0). Groups of 5 rats each, were administered 100, 150, 200 mg/kg of different ashes and A. muricata extract (200 mg/kg). Normal saline and glibenclamide (5 mg/kg) were negative and positive controls, respectively. Their blood glucose levels were determined at 0-4 hours post-extract/ash/drug administration; results analysed using ANOVA followed by the Student-Newman-Keuls’ and Dunnett post-hoc tests. P ˂ .05 was considered significantly different. Results: 100 mg/kg of Momordica charantia, Azadirachta indica and Eugenia malaccensis leaf ashes was their most active dose, indicating significantly higher extrapancreatic activity. 32, 37, 54, 59 and 36, 43, 50, 48 % reductions elicited by Chromolaena odorata (COLA) and A. muricata (AMLA) ashes (200 mg/kg) at 0.5, 1, 2 and 4 hours, respectively made them the most active ashes. Also, blood glucose levels in glibenclamide (5 mg/kg)-, COLA-, AMLA- and its extract (200 mg/kg)-treated rats were comparable (P > .05) and their anti-hyperglycaemic activity was suggested to be due to the pancreatic (insulinotropic) and extra-pancreatic actions of their constituents. Conclusion: Study justified anti-diabetic ethnomedicinal use of plant-ashes in Nigeria, while doses were recommended for the optimum folkloric usage of these leaf ashes in managing diabetes in the rural areas of Nigeria. The leaf ashes may contain elements with glucose postprandial tolerance factor and insulin stimulating properties.
