Euphorbia

Euphorbia / Gan Sui


Presentation

  • We present a case of a 40-year-old female with severe keratouveitis secondary to Euphorbia trigona plant sap. The patient dropped sap into both eyes to relieve itching and developed Euphorbia keratouveitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • After 24 h, she presented blurred vision. BCVA was 20/80. Toxic keratouveitis was diagnosed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Euphol, a tetracyclic triterpene alcohol, is one of the major compounds present in Euphorbia species, and some biological activities have been attributed to this compound.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The present study provides scientific justification for its traditional use against cancer. KEYWORDS: Cytotoxicity; Euphorbia caducifolia; GC-MS; growth inhibition; petroleum ether fraction; sulphorhodamine-B[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • In the present study, two new and five known phorbol esters were isolated from Euphorbia grandicornis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Thrombosis
  • These results could be of first importance for further application to use EuP-82, the natural source protease as a potential drug for the thrombosis treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • EuP-82 has potential for use in medicinal treatment, for example thrombosis, since the enzyme had fibrinogenolytic activity and high stability. Copyright 2015 Elsevier Masson SAS. All rights reserved.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Vascular Disease
  • These data indicate that β-amyrin is potentially useful in preventing chronic inflammation-related vascular diseases.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Ciliary Injection
  • On examination, eyelid edema, ciliary injection, corneal edema with Descemet membrane folds and exudate in the anterior chamber were seen bilaterally. With supportive treatment all signs and symptoms were relieved.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Examination revealed ciliary injection, 90% corneal epithelial defect, marked stromal edema with Descemet folds, and anterior-chamber flare with a 1-mm hypopyon. There was no vitreitis, and funduscopy was unremarkable.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Workup

Hepatocellular Carcinoma
  • To explore the inhibitory effect of EAE and molecular mechanism on hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) SMMC-7721 cells in vivo, we utilized the nude mouse xenograft model of HCC.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Treatment

  • BACKGROUND: Some plants had been used in the treatment of cancer and one of these has attracted scientific interest, the Euphorbia tirucalli (E. tirucalli), used in the treatment of asthma, ulcers, warts has active components with activities scientifically[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • For instance in Australia, topical application of latex of Euphorbia peplus L. is used as a home treatment for skin cancer and actinic keratosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • BACKGROUND: Euphorbia supina (ES) plant has been used as treatment for inflammatory conditions.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Anti-angiogenic therapy is a recognized strategy for treating cancer-based solid tumors, and is also associated with malignant ascites treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • As a natural product, which has been used in traditional medicine for thousands of years, Euphorbia kansui is attractive as a potential treatment strategy, particularly in resource poor countries with limited treatment options.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Etiology

  • Therefore, the objective of the present study was to determine the antibacterial and anti-inflammatory activities of ES against P. acnes, the etiologic agent of skin inflammation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • In recent years cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying diseases have been extensively studied 22 and aided the discovery of disease etiology.[nature.com]
  • Toxicologic and pathophysiologic observations in lactating goats and their suckling kids fed on the irritant herbs Euphorbia nubica and Euphorbia helioscopia: an etiologic model for investigations on the putative risk of cancer by consumption of food.[euphorbia.de]

Pathophysiology

  • Toxicologic and pathophysiologic observations in lactating goats and their suckling kids fed on the irritant herbs Euphorbia nubica and Euphorbia helioscopia: an etiologic model for investigations on the putative risk of cancer by consumption of food.[euphorbia.de]

Prevention

  • These data indicate that β-amyrin is potentially useful in preventing chronic inflammation-related vascular diseases.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Treatment indicated was pain relief, prevention of infection, and reduction of swelling.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Exposure to Euphorbia sap should be treated immediately to prevent sequelae like corneal scarring.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • CONCLUSION: EuH may be beneficial in the prevention of invasion and metastasis of early stage breast cancer and can be served as an anti-metastatic agent or adjuvant therapy against metastatic breast cancer.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • By soothing the gut walls, Euphorbia hirta can restore your bowel movements to a more normal level and prevent any additional pain or discomfort.[organicfacts.net]
