Biflavonoids were not found in trunk wood. Introduction Goat herding is an attractive source of income for farmers in northeastern Brazil. To date, there are no reports in literature regarding compound 1.

In addition, serum IgA levels had a significant response in the 5. Caesalpinia pyramidalis, Fabaceae, biflavonoids, flavonoids.

Thus, the single signal at d 5. The absence of bathochromic effect permitted to localize the methoxyl group in the C-2′.

Indexed in Science Citation Index Expanded. However, the G4 animals treated with 5. The C-6 flavone linkage was also suggested by the shielded peak of the methine carbon C-8 d Collectively, the present results suggest that the ethanol extract of Caesalpinia pyramidalis displays gastroprotective actions, supporting the folkloric usage of the plant to treat various gastrointestinal disturbances.

The chloroform extract of the trunk wood gave 4,4′-dihydroxy-2′-methoxychalcone, – -syringaresinol, and methyl gallate. Therefore, further xaesalpinia with infected animals are caesalpjnia to evaluate the best dose of the extract to be administered and still offer subsidies for the development of new pyramidais for the treatment of livestock against gastrointestinal nematodes.


Caesalpinia pyramidalis

FEC determination was carried out in four regular intervals, initially, two weeks before assay, with the aim at tracing and randomly distributing the animals into four groups at day zero, prior treatment extract and doramectinand then at days 30 and 60 after treatment in all groups.

However, the gastroprotective properties of this species have not yet been studied. However, the biflavonoid structure of caesalflavone 1 was corroborated mainly through the presence of two nonhydrogenated carbon resonances at d One of the effects resulting from the extract treatment could be due to the decrease of fecundity of female parasites, which can be explained by the presence of active compounds in this plant extracts.

June 10, Published on the web: In the model ligature pylorus, the treatment with Caesalpinia pyramidalis ethanol extract failed to significantly change the gastric secretion parameters. Therefore, economic losses caused by GIN are related to decreased production, treatment costs, and even animal death in small ruminant production [ 2 ].

An asterisk mark represents significant differences. Although controversial, this is consistent with other experimental findings with helminthes, in which no notable alteration in these parameters was found [ caesaplinia ]. In conclusion, the results showed that CP provoked a protective response in infected animals treated with them.

In Bahia State, it is popularly known caesaopinia “catingueiro” or “pau-de-rato”, and its leaves are employed in traditional medicine as diuretic, dyspeptic, digestive, and antipyretic.


From the chloroform extract trunk wood were obtained the known compounds 4,4′-dihydroxy-2′-methoxychalcone 4syringaresinol 5and methyl gallate.

The antiulcer assays were performed using the ethanol- and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug-induced ulcer models. The parasitological analysis indicated that the CP extract exhibited anthelmintic activity in naturally infected goats, whose effectiveness was evidenced by the reduction in FEC as compared to the negative control group. All groups treated with this extract had a positive FEC reduction of Subscribe to Table of Contents Alerts.

Besides, the double caesalpiinia signals at d 5. All the contents of this journal, except where otherwise noted, is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution License.

Species identification was kindly provided by Prof. The chloroform partition However, the analysis of HMBC spectrum data for the linkage between the flavonoid units was conclusive. Probably the higher deviations on the determined FEC values were due to the traditional and extensive management practices in the Brazilian semiarid region; therefore, the goats were always exposed to a contaminated environment. Fabaceaepyramiralis as “catingueira”, has been used in folk medicine in caesalpiniaa treatment of various disorders such as gastritis, heartburn, indigestion, and stomach ache.
