Biochemical changes in the rat uterine tissue following Embelia ribes burm. extracts
AO Prakash, R Mathur
Changes i n the biochemical parameters like glycogen, proteins, nonprotein nitrogen and total solid matter in the uterine tissue of virgin rats have been studied following treatment with 50% ethanol and benzene extracts of Embella ribes Burm. Both the extracts increase significantly the glycogen. protein and nonprotein nitrogen contents in the uterus of normal and ovariectomized rats. The effect depends upon the dose and the period of treatment. Activity is statistically significant at low dose level but decreases as the dose is increased. Higher dose of benzene extract is toxic. Of the extracts, 50% ethanol show encouraging results. Effect is more pronounced in ovariectomized rats than in normal rats.
