Oxidative stress and inflammation are constant features of many chronic diseases and complications and it have been linked to carcinogenesis. Antioxidants from natural sources play a paramount role in serving endogenous antioxidants to neutralize oxidative stress. Thus, the aim of this study was to evaluate enzymatic and non-enzymatic antioxidant capacity and anti-skin irritation activity of Cayratia trifolia
against perchloroethylene (PCE) induced wistar albino rats. The total alkaloid, flavonoid, phenol and tannin and antioxidant assays like, catalase, peroxidase, superoxide dismutase, vitamin C were estimated. Skin irritation was induced through wiping PCE in knee skin of experimental rats. After 30 days the rats were sacrificed and histopathological studies were done. Enzymatic and non-enzymatic antioxidant assays revealed that, the ethanolic extract of Cayratia trifolia
posseses comparable antioxidant activity with standard drug. The HPTLC analysis shown that, tannin and phenol compounds present in this extract. The histopathological results, when compared with control, PCE induced groups showed mild inflammation whereas ethanolic extract of Cayratia trifolia
treated groups showed compact inflammation. Based on the results, it can be concluded that, ethanolic extract of Cayratia trifolia
perhaps a natural source of antioxidants. In future, it may be potential natural resources for pharmacology of functional foods.

Jyotsnadevi Talapanti, Harika Kakumanu, Lavanya Yaidikar, Santhrani Thakur
Icariin (ICA), a flavonol glycoside derived from several species of plants belonging to genus Epimedium, family berberidaeceae. It is well known for its antioxidant properties. Its antioxidant potential against cisplatin induced nephrotoxicity is not yet reported. The present study is hypothesized and proposed to evaluate the antioxidant potential of ICA against cisplatin induced nephrotoxicity. Male Wistar rats were divided into five groups of six each. Group I served as control; Group II received single intraperitoneal injection of 7 mg/kg body weight of Cisplatin; Group III received Cisplatin and ICA (50 mg/kg/p.o); Group IV received Cisplatin and ICA (100 mg/kg/p.o); Group V received ICA (100 mg/kg/p.o) alone. Cisplatin administration significantly altered the levels of renal function markers in the serum such as serum Creatinine (SCr), blood urea nitrogen (BUN), which were significantly restored with ICA treatment. Increase In urinary total protein (UTP
), urinary clearance (UCr
) and kidney lipid peroxides (MDA) along with concomitant reduced levels of antioxidant enzymes, which were also reversed upon ICA treatment. ICA protective effect was confirmed with histopathological studies. These results clearly demonstrate that the antioxidant effect of ICA might contribute to its protective effect against Cisplatin induced Nephrotoxicity.

Diabetic neuropathy (DN) is an important complication of diabetes mellitus resulting in a great deal of morbidity. The prevalence of diabetic neuropathy is about 26.1% in Indian population. Peripheral diabetic neuropathy is characterised by peripheral demyelination, decrease in the nerve conduction and degeneration of myelinated and demyelinated sensory nerve fibres. Aim and objective
: The present study will be undertaken with an objective to evaluate the effect of aqueous extract of leaves of Gymnema sylvestre on hyperalgesia in streptozotocin induced diabetic rats and in- vitro aldose reductase inhibition. Materials and methods:
Wistar albino rats, rendered diabetic with streptozotocin, were divided into 5 groups, namely the diabetic control treated with vehicle (DC), standard control which received glibenclamide+metformin (SC), test groups treated with 100, 200and 400 mg/kg b.w. of Gymnema sylvestre (GS1, GS2 and GS3 respectively). A group of five normal animals served as normal control (NC). Fasting blood glucose, body weight and reaction time to tail flick were measured one week after induction of diabetes. The animals were then treated orally for two weeks after which the same parameters were repeated. In-vitro aldose reductase inhibition assay was carried out at concentrations of 5, 10, 25, 50, 100 and 200 mcg/ml of Gymnema sylvestre using rat lens from normal rats. The in-vivo results were analysed with Mann Whitney test. Results:
The DC group demonstrated a decrease in the reaction time (hyperalgesia) compared to NC while a significant increase in the reaction time was observed with SC, GS2 and GS3 groups (p<0.05) as compared to the DC group. GS1 and GS2 showed a significant reduction in body weight compared to their baseline values (p<0.05). There was no significant change in the fasting blood glucose (FBS) in any of the groups. In-vitro aldose reductase inhibition was observed with GS with an IC 50 of 103 mcg/ml. Conclusion
: Hence this study form the basis of an effort of Gymnema sylvestre reduece the hyperalgesia in experimental diabetic neuropathy. It has an aldose reductase inhibitory activity in-vitro which may contribute to the beneficial effects.
