During the last decade, natural antioxidants, particularly phenolics, have been under very close scrutiny as potential therapeutic agents against a wide range of ailments including cancer, inflammatory diseases and also aging. In addition, Lima de Medeiros et al. The authors thank Luciana T. Currently available leishmaniasis treatments are limited due to severe side effects. Neutrophils play an important role in tumor angiogenesis releasing chemokines that cause endothelial cell invasion and vessel formation.

An intense swelling of the mitochondrion with the presence of vesicles was observed in the parasites. Identification of interferon-gamma as the lymphokine that activates human macrophage oxidative metabolism and antimicrobial activity.

Recently, the antimicrobial activity of a hydroethanolic extract from A. First, promastigote forms of L. The association between cytokines and tumor chicq inhibition has been described Silva et al.

Apparently the same occurs here, suggesting that other nonspecific inflammatory mechanism might be relevant in tumor resistance. Veterinary hematology and clinical chemistry.

Arrabidaea chica – Wikipedia

In Brazil, CL and VL are widespread and can be found not only in rural areas but also in urban areas mainly due to deforestation and new settlements [ 3 ]. Materials and Methods 2.


Peritoneal mouse macrophages were obtained as described above. It is the second largest cause of death in the world.

The direct strong cytotoxic effect of ethanol extract was already demonstrated in the in vitro experiments against Jurkat and HL60 cell lines Ribeiro et al. Arrabidaea chica hexanic extract induces mitochondrion damage and peptidase inhibition on Leishmania spp. chicca

Tumor Inflammatory Angiogenesis and Its Chemoprevention. The growth curve of the Ehrlich tumor presents an exponential behavior from the third day post inoculation until day 30 th Dagli et al.

In the present study, the reincubation of parasites treated at MIC values in fresh medium revealed that those cells were no longer able to grow. Table of Contents Alerts. Despite the decrease in peptidase activity the results show that B2 was less effective against those peptidases. The photomicrographs were obtained using an electron microscope Jeol JEM Evaluation of Leishmania Inhibitory Concentrations The assay was carried out in a well microtiter plate where the hexanic extract from A.

These findings suggest that A. Moreover, B2 fraction was able to completely inhibit the peptidase activity of promastigotes at pH 5. Antileishmanial activity and cytotoxic effect of the A. Other times the tumor cells were smaller, spindle shaped with basophilic cytoplasm. There are no reports on literature that demonstrate the cell types involved in the inhibition of Ehrlich solid tumor growth.

The role of inflammatory and immune responses in tumor development is unclear. Alterations in the ultrastructure of the parasites were analyzed by transmission TEM electron microscopy.

Effect of Arrabidaea chica extracts on the Ehrlich solid tumor development

Evaluation of anti-inflammatory, antiangiogenic and antiproliferative activities of Arrabidaea chica crude extracts. Ultrastructure Analysis Alterations in the ultrastructure of the parasites were analyzed by transmission TEM electron microscopy. J Exp Med It is possible that the antitumor effect of A.


Promastigote forms of two Leishmania species, Leishmania L. This fact could be partly explained by the lack of investments in drug research for poverty-related diseases, which includes leishmaniasis [ 4 ]. The Ehrlich tumor cells lack the expression of major histocompatibility antigens.

There were groups of large and oval cells with abundant vacuolated faintly basophilic cytoplasm with indistinct borders. The leaves of A. The treatment with AE, which also reduced tumor growth, did not alter chicq number of neutrophils in blood or differ from control group in concern to the morphology of the tumor.

Analysis was performed at room temperature. In order to evaluate the arranidaea of the B2 fraction on metalopeptidases, cellular lysates from L.

BioMed Research International

Here, the B2 fraction demonstrated significant peptidase inhibition when tested on cellular lysates of Leishmania Figure 1. However, most of these drugs are agrabidaea, present toxic effects, and are able to induce parasite resistance [ 5 ]. Cancer is one of the leading causes of mortality worldwide.

Promastigotes were treated with several concentrations of the fractions obtained from A. Measures of mice paws showed a continuous tumor growth in all experimental groups.
