It is important to note that this method only assists in optimizing the selection and does not eliminate, under any circumstance, the in vivo tests [ 24 ].

Cnidoscolus quercifolius

The authors expect to develop a new herbal product, resulting in lower production costs and that, consequently, could be commercialized in more accessible form to the population, highlighting the risk reduction of contraindication of this category of medications. In the bark of C.

Antimicrobial assays against bacterial strains and fungi tested, using commercial drugs Chloramphenicol, Streptomycin, and Thiabendazole as a positive control, showed no growth of microorganisms. Table 2 shows the results of antimicrobial activity quercfolius methanolic extracts of C. Van De Meent, K.

Cnidoscolus quercifolius – Useful Tropical Plants

Among these is the faveleiraused in northeastern Brazil. Several authors call attention to the direct dependency on this environmental resource by the populations living out of extractivist activities within the biome [ 910 ].

The lethality assay against Artemia sp. These bioactive molecules exhibit a variety of biological effects, such as antithrombotic, anti-inflammatory, and anticancer effects, as a result of their antioxidant properties [ 41 ]. View at Google Scholar A. To determine the biological activities the authors conducted investigation of antioxidant and antimicrobial activities, inhibition capacity of the acetylcholinesterase enzyme, and initial assessment of toxicity of the extracts.


Hoffm presented relevant antioxidant activity and phenolic compounds in the species, suggesting that C. The semiarid region of the Brazilian Northeast is known for hosting a number of native species that are under systematic exploitation in recent years, without any sustainable management, which ultimately causes the extinction of some species, thus unleashing a rural exodus.

In many cases, the procedures of modern medicine and popular medicine are supplemental and constitute an effective form of primary health care, which may supplement the treatment usually employed in the lower income population. To be exploited rationally, its potential needs to be scientifically demonstrated.

Currently, this practice constitutes an amount cbidoscolus internalized knowledge shared among multiple users or in more traditional communities [ 1 ].

Today, according to Amorozo [ 2 ], the introduction of modern medicine offers another option for health practices in traditional communities that use popular medicine. To analyze the significance of the differences between the samples the authors used Variance Analysis ANOVA followed by the Newman-Keuls comparison test, being considered significant.

Screening of Bioactivities and Toxicity of Cnidoscolus quercifolius Pohl

In performing the inhibition test of fungal growth, it was observed that the LME showed inhibition against Lasiodiplodia theobromae LF11, L. Corroborating this, Kutchan [ 33 ] reports that the secondary metabolites have a direct relationship with plants and the environment in which they live; therefore, their synthesis is often affected by environmental conditions.

Preliminary phytochemical qeurcifolius of C. One of the cnidoscolud AChE inhibitors used was physostigmine, an alkaloid isolated from a plant of the Leguminosae family, although this alkaloid is no longer used clinically, due to its short half-life.

Tests were performed for the detection of phenols and tannins, anthocyanins and anthocyanidins, flavones, flavonols, xanthones, flavanones, chalcones and aurones, leucoanthocyanidins, catechins, steroids and triterpenoids, and saponins.

Man has long been using plants to promote health, in the belief that they carry beneficial substances for a healthy existence.

Cnidkscolus improvement of the conditions of oxidative stress by plants has been associated with phenolic compounds such as flavonoids and qurrcifolius polyphenols.
