Anti diabetic Activity of Aqueous Extract of Peganum Harmala Roots in Streptozotocin induced Diabetic Rats

Anti diabetic Activity of Aqueous Extract of Peganum Harmala Roots in Streptozotocin induced Diabetic Rats

induced diabetic rats [21; 22]. Another observation arising from this study is the eff ect of the AEPHR on the body weight in the treated rats. The improvement in body weight in diabetic rats treated may be due to improvement in metabolic activity of the system o maintain glucose homeostasis. These results suggested that root contained some bioactive principles that possess insulin protective or insulin-like activity [23]. The phytochemical study of root revealed the presence saponins, tannins, alkaloids, amino acids, flavonoids, triterpenes and Sterols that are known to be bio active anti-diabetic principles [24]. Amino acids have been reported as anti hyperglycemic agents. This eff ect may be due to a direct action of amino acids on the sensitivity of cells to insulin or increase the anabolism of muscle cells [25]. Tannins have been reported to possess hypoglycemic activity [26]. Alkaloids inhibit alpha-glucosidase and decrease glucose transport through the intestinal epithelium. Flavonoids suppress the glucose level, reduce plasma cholesterol and triglycerides significantly and increase hepatic glucokinase activity probably by enhancing the insulin release from pancreatic islets. Saponins stimulate the release of insulin and block the formation of glucose in the bloodstream [24]. It is concluded that Peganum harmala has significant anti-diabetic activity as it lowers the fasting blood sugar level in diabetic rats and increases the glucose tolerance. However, further studies are required for the isolation and structural elucidation of the active components of the plant material.

Anti mycobacterial and anti inflammatory activity of Peganum harmala

with antiviral drugs. Immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome (IRIS) is a paradoxical inflammatory reaction against a foreign antigen in patients who have started antiretroviral therapy and who have undergone a reconstitution of their immune responses against this antigen [28]. Tuberculosis is the best-described presentation of IRIS [29-31]. The problems with current methods of tuberculosis treatment caused researchers to discover new drugs or alternatives to treat tuberculosis. The present study was conducted to assess the anti-mycobacterial and anti- inflammatory effects of the seeds of Peganum harmala, a medicinal plant reputed in folklore medicine for its anti- inflammatory and antimicrobial activities. Peganum harmala L. (Zygophyllaceae) commonly called as Esfand and Suryin Rue is widely distributed in North Africa, Mediterranean, the Middle East, Pakistan, India and Iran. Peganum harmala is a medicinal plant with antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties [32]. The seeds of P. harmala L. contain about 2–6% pharmacologically active alkaloids, which are mostly carbolines such as harman, harmine, harmaline and harmalol [33]. Our data showed the strong antimycobacterial activity of hydro- alcoholic extracts of seeds of Peganum harmalaagainst MDR and non-MDR isolates and a drug-susceptible reference strain of M. tuberculosis H37Rv. The Golestan province is a place in the north of Iran with high prevalence of tuberculosis [34] and a very proper climate for herbal plants to grow. It seems that there is a good opportunity to study on medicinal plants and their secondary metabolites to improve the treatment of infectious disease particularly tuberculosis.

Biological Control Test of Ethanol Extracts Of Peganum Harmala (L.) on The Mortality And Development of Culex Pipiens (Diptera)

Biological Control Test of Ethanol Extracts Of Peganum Harmala (L.) on The Mortality And Development of Culex Pipiens (Diptera)

The Culicidae family constitutes a plague of health risks. These biting insects are harmful to human populations and pass on infectious diseases such as malaria. Since chemical control has limited effectiveness against mosquitoes, biological control has become more prevalent. We conducted toxicological tests with an ethanolic extract of fresh leaves of Peganum harmala on Culex pipiens larvae (L4). The results show a larvicidal effect that resulted in an LD 50% in 10.17 days for a 2 g/L dose and an LD 50% in 5.76 days for a 4 g/L dose. A sub-lethal dose was tested on the different stages of the studied species, and a significant difference was observed between the duration until hatching in female eggs from the control group and eggs from the treated group (P = 0.01). There was a considerable prolongation of each stage of the development cycle in the treated group, in the egg-laying period, in the hatching period, and also in the duration until the emergence of the adults. These results show that P. harmala causes retardation and inhibition of moulting and development of Culex pipiens.
