Gene context of Achyrocline

  • Furthermore, no study had been conducted so far exploring the antioxidant activity of Achyrocline satureoides vis-à-vis human LDL oxidation, which is the compelling issue in pinpointing potential cardioprotective new uses for a traditional remedy [9].
  • Toxicological studies of the aqueous extract from Achyrocline satureioides (Lam.) DC (Marcela) [10].
  • Pharmacological investigations on Achyrocline satureioides (LAM.) DC., Compositae [11].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of Achyrocline

  • In this study we investigated the antioxidant properties of one herbal preparation widely used in complementary and alternative medicine in large areas of the world: Achyrocline satureoides (AS), popularly known as "marcela". Although rich in flavonoids, the ethnopharmacological uses of this plant do not include atherosclerosis prevention [9].
