Its fruit, of a yellow-orange color, is chewed as chewing gum, due to the latex it contains and due to its flavor, while the powder obtained by scrapping the roots is used as a fragrance Hoehne, At the end of the experiment, all surviving animals were sacrificed by means of inhalation of chloroform and were macroscopically examined.

Of the Brosimum gaudichaudii – BG Figure 2. A superb work, with the minor irritation that the translation from Portuguese is not of the best. Plants of this genus are otherwise used for timberbuilding materials, and in a cultural context. Encouraging research about natural products would not only benefit the poor population, but also the Brazilian health system as a whole, as it would reduce the demand for public services, since it encourages oriented self-medication, of a much lower cost and usually quite low risk Ribeiro et al.

The influence of such alterations upon the death cause must be taken into account in sub-acute and chronic toxicity tests. Articles with ‘species’ microformats Commons category link is on Wikidata All stub articles.

Estimates are that our planet contains aboutbotanic species. Punicaceae whole fruit extracts. The fruit and some leaves back view only Photograph by: Litchfield JT, Wilcoxon F Therefore, the development of acute pre-clinical toxicity trials has been proposed approximate lethal dose, ALD, and median lethal dose, LD50 of the BG root exsudate in laboratory animals.

The increase of hemosiderin was the only statistically meaningful difference between the test and control group animals in the histopathological study. For determining LD50, the mice were divided into 2 large groups, according to the administration via: Logarithms and probits were determined for each dose, aiming at calculating the median lethal dose DL50which has resulted in Ficus religiosa Bo Tree. Once the suber is removed, the light brown cortical parenchyma, somewhat striped in the longitudinal direction, appears.


Native to savanna and scrub-forest regions of Brazil. For determining the acute toxicity of BG approximate lethal dose, ALD, and average lethal dose, LD50 brosmum, albino male mice were gaudidhaudii, weighing between 35 and 45 g The seriousness of the gzudichaudii signs was dose-dependant Table 3. Uses Juice is sucked out or pulp is chewed raw. Amino acid residue modifications were found, brksimum as glutamine N-terminal residue cyclisation into pyroglutamic acid residue, and mass differences corresponding to hexoses and N-acetylhexosamine presence.

Indian J Exp Biol Um novo fotossensibilizante de Brosimum gaudichaudii. The higher doses have led to lethality in a much shorter period of time. The product was considered as of being of low toxicity, taking into account only the single dose acute toxicity.

The LD50 po was Assim, a DLA p.

Along thousands of years of successful and unsuccessful experiences, knowledge has been accumulated about both their benign and malign effects. Each one of the groups was subdivided into 6 sub-groups of 10 animals each: The dosage methodology of the bergapten and psoralen biomarkers in the used exsudate is in a development stage.

This powder, in microscopic terms, presents itself as pieces in varied shapes and sizes, in the amber color, semi-transparent when observed under the microscope under direct light.
