Hypotensive effect of the water extract of the leaves of Pseuderanthemum palatiferum.

Summary of "Hypotensive effect of the water extract of the leaves of Pseuderanthemum palatiferum."

The cardiovascular effects of the water extract from fresh leaves of P. palatiferum (PP) were evaluated in rats in both in vivo and in vitro models. The PP extract consisted of alkaloids, coumarins and sterols. The extract (5-25 mg/kg, I.V.) decreased both the mean arterial blood pressure and heart rate of normotensive and

The effects of isoproterenol on isolated atrium were attenuated by the extract (2.5-5 mg/mL). In conclusion, the water extract from fresh leaves of P. palatiferum possessed hypotensive and bradycardic effects. The vasorelaxant effect of the extract was dependent partly on the vascular endothelium but was not dependent on the synthesis of nitric oxide and did not act through activation of the muscarinic receptor.
