Micronuclei in circulating erythrocytes: Wikispecies has information related to Curcuma caesia.

Table 3 Superoxide anion scavenging ability of standard and methanolic extract of Curcuma caesia Roxb. The chemistry of free radicals is complicated and it caused a major vurcuma in the identification of free radical scavenging activity.

Iran J Pharm Sci. Int J Pharm Sci Res. Where, Ab is the absorption of the control and Aa is the absorption of the extract sample. Based on the antioxidant activity, three of the rhizome extracts were evaluated for their antimutagenic properties against indirect acting mutagen cyclophosphamide CP using Salmonella typhimurium strains TA98 and TA In-vitro cesia of antioxidant activity of Curcuma caesia Roxb.


The protective effect of ellagic acid. Open in a separate window. The quenching of free radical activity of different extracts were determined by spectrophotometric method against 2,2-diphenylpicryl hydrazyl DPPH following [25].

The total phenolic contents in the examined plant extracts using the Folin Cioclteu’s reagent is expressed in terms cassia gallic acid equivalent the standard curve: With an ever increasing cause of cuecuma, it has been recommended to treat with conventional drugs, however because of the side effects caused by the conventional drugs, the research on medicinal plants has been intensified due to their less adverse and toxic effects.
