protection of ornamental gold fish carassius auratus against aeromonas hydrophila by treating ixora coccinea active principles.herbals such as ixora coccinea, daemia extensa and tridax procumbens were selected to screen in vitro antibacterial and immunostimulant activity against the freshwater fish pathogen aeromonas hydrophila using different organic polar and non-polar solvents. initial screening results revealed that, ethyl acetate extracts and its purified fraction of i. coccinea was able to suppress the a. hydrophila strains at more than 15 mm of zone of inhibition and positive immunostimulant activity. the purifie ...201424380832
host suitability of ixora spp. for the root-knot nematodes meloidogyne incognita race 1 and m. javanica.eight commonly cultivated ixora species or cultivars were tested for their suitability as hosts and their level of tolerance to meloidogyne incognita race 1 and m. javanica in a greenhouse study. twenty weeks postinoculation with 5,000 eggs per pot, m. incognita race 1 and m. javanica produced galls and formed egg masses on roots of all eight ixora species or cultivars tested. however, only m. javanica-infected 'petite yellow' and 'maui' had decreases (p </= 0.05) in root wet weights, suggesting ...199219283052
screening of rubiaceae and apocynaceae extracts for mosquito larvicidal potential.rubiaceae and apocynaceae families are well known for the expression of cyclotides having insecticidal properties. leaves and flowers extracts of plants from the families rubiaceae (ixora coccinea) and apocynaceae (allamanda violacea) were evaluated for mosquito larvicidal effect against early ivth instars of aedes aegypti and anopheles stephensi. two forms of plant extracts, one untreated and the other treated with heat and proteolytic enzyme were used for assay. after primary assay, the extrac ...201525317964
antidiarrheal activity of flowers of ixora coccinea linn. in rats.ixora coccinea linn (rubiaceae), a small shrub cultivated throughout india, has been reported to possess a number of medicinal properties. it has traditionally been used for the treatment of diarrhea and dysentery. however the claims of ayurveda have to be validated by suitable experimental models. the present study was therefore undertaken to evaluate the effect of aqueous extract of i. coccinea for its antidiarrheal potential against several experimental models of diarrhea in albino wistar rat ...201021731376
hepatoprotective effect of three herbal extracts on aflatoxin b1-intoxicated rat liver.roots of ixora coccinea (rubiaceae), and rhinacanthus nasuta (acanthaceae) and whole plants of spilanthes ciliata (asteraceae) are extensively used by tribal communities in south india to treat liver diseases. however, the veracity of these tribal claims has not been investigated scientifically using the liver toxin, aflatoxin. this study reports on the protective effects of these three herbal ethanolic extracts on the aflatoxin b1 (afb1)-intoxicated livers of albino male wistar rats.201020505912
