Hair lotion containing methyl myristate loaded in cationic niosomes (HL-MMnio) composed of Brij72/cholesterol/DDAB at 7:3:0.65 molar ratio was developed. The remaining percentages of MM loaded in cationic niosomes in hair lotion were higher than free MM in hair lotion of about 1.2 times. The cumulative amounts in porcine skin and the receiver compartment of MM loaded in cationic niosomes incorporated in hair lotion were higher than those of free MM in hair lotion of 1.45 and 1.32 times, respectively. HL-MMnio showed very slightly irritation on rabbit skin, which was disappeared after 4 d. For melanogenesis induction in C57BL/6 mice with aged-induced grey body coat hairs, the highest pigmentation scores of HL-MMnio applied on the dorsal area were observed after 21 days, while hair lotion containing the free MM indicated after 35 days. This study has suggested that HL-MMnio was the high potential formulation for canities treatment. © 2016 Informa UK Limited, trading as Taylor & Francis Group

This study aimed to increase the solubility of indomethacin in water by complexation it with hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin (HPβCD). Phase-solubility analysis was used to investigate interactions in aqueous solution between HPβCD and indomethacin. Equimolar indomethacin-HPβCD solid systems were prepared by four different methods including physical mixtures (PM), kneading (KN), coevaporation (COE) and freeze-drying (COL) methods. The complex was characterized by infrared spectroscopy, differential scanning calorimetry, X-ray diffractometry, thin layer chromatography and dissolution rates. The complexation efficiency of indomethacin-HPβCD was determined spectrophotometrically. The solubility of indomethacin increased linearly as the concentration of HPβCD increased. This indicated a feature of the AL-type complex that the water-soluble complexes existed in the solution. The average of apparent 1:1 stability constant of the complex (K1:1) at 30°C was 340 M-1. The KN and COE methods formed partial inclusion complexes, whereas the COL method gave complete complexation. The dissolution rates of indomethacin increased when complexed with HPβCD. HPβCD complexation of an ionized drug molecule by the COL method exhibited the highest dissolution rate of indomethacin [the dissolution efficiency after 90 min (DE90) at 61.7±0.9% and t50% of 13 min., while the uncomplexed indomethacin showed DE90 at 15.4±0.1% and t50% more than 90 min. The COL process was the best method because of the high content and dissolution rate of the drug. It is also the simple method to prepare the inclusion complexes. The result from this study has suggested the dissolution rate enhancement of indomethacin by the simple complexaion method with HPβCD. © 2016, Chiang Mai Journal of Science. All rights reserved.

Thai/Lanna medicinal plant recipes have been used for the treatment of several diseases including oral and cervical cancers. Objective: To investigate anti-proliferative activity on human cervical (HeLa) and oral (KB) cancer cell lines of medicinal plants selected from Thai/Lanna medicinal plant recipe database "MANOSROI III". Materials and methods: Twenty-three methanolic plant crude extracts were tested for phytochemicals and anti-proliferative activity on HeLa and KB cell lines for 24h by the sulforhodamine B (SRB) assay at the doses of 1×10-1×10-6mg/ml. The nine extracts with the concentrations giving 50% growth inhibition (GI50) lower than 100μg/ml were further semi-purified by liquid/liquid partition in order to evaluate and enhance the anti-proliferative potency. Results: All extracts contained steroids/triterpenoids, but not xanthones. The methanolic extracts of Gloriosa superba L. (Colchinaceae) root and Albizia chinensis (Osbeck) Merr. (Leguminosae-Mimosoideae) wood gave the highest anti-proliferative activity on HeLa and KB cell lines with the GI50 values of 0.91 (6.0-and 0.31-fold of cisplatin and doxorubicin) and 0.16μg/ml (28.78-and 82.29-fold of cisplatin and doxorubicin), respectively. Hexane and methanol-water fractions of G. superba exhibited the highest anti-proliferative activity on HeLa and KB cell lines with the GI50 values of 0.15 (37-and 1.9-fold of cisplatin and doxorubicin) and 0.058μg/ml (77.45-and 221.46-fold of cisplatin and doxorubicin), respectively. Discussion and conclusion: This study has demonstrated the potential of plants selected from MANOSROI III database especially G. superba and A. chinensis for further development as anti-oral and cervical cancer agents. © 2015 Informa Healthcare USA, Inc.

Sesamin is the primary compound in sesame seed oil which has been used in ayurvedic treatment for hair loss and canities. Sesamin was isolated, identified and investigated for antioxidative activities (including DPPH radical scavenging, lipid peroxidation inhibition and metal ion chelating activities), 5α-reductase inhibition in DU-145 and melanogenesis activities on B16F10 melanoma. Sesamin at the concentration of 0.001-10 mg/ml showed weak DPPH scavenging activity (the SC50 value of 109.90 ± 6.16 mg/ml), but quite high lipid peroxidation inhibition and metal ion chelating activities (the IPC50 value of 0.83 ± 0.54 and the CC50 value of 1.83 ± 0.90 mg/ml, respectively). At 0.1 mg/ml of sesamin demonstrated high 5α-reductase inhibition activity at 37.38±4.26% of the control, which was higher than the standard finasteride of 1.54 times, but lower than the standard dutasteride of 1.27 times. It gave high melanin and tyrosinase contents of 26.63±3.21 and 39.42±8.30%, respectively, but lower than theophylline of about 1.04 and 1.05 times, respectively. Although sesamin exhibited all investigated activities lower than the standards, the traditional use of sesame seeds containing sesamin for hair cosmetics has been confirmed, which will be beneficial for the further development as anti-hair loss and anti-canities products. © 2015 Chiang Mai University.

Context: Plant mucilages can be found in various parts of several Thai plants, which can be used as thickening, moisturizing, and lubricating agents in artificial saliva formulations. Objective: The objective of this study was to evaluate the physicochemical properties, biological activity, and cytotoxicity of Thai plant mucilages. Materials and methods: The mucilages from Thai plants were extracted by various processes (temperature and pH variation, microwave oven, steam, and Tris-HCl buffer extraction). The viscosity and the rheology were evaluated using viscometer. Antioxidative activities including DPPH radical scavenging and metal chelating activities were investigated. The mucilages were determined for cytotoxicity on normal human gingival fibroblasts and anti-adherent activity of Streptococcus mutans. Results: Mucilages from Ocimum citriodorum Vis. (Lamiaceae), Artocarpus heterophyllus Lam. (Moraceae), Abelmoschus esculentus (Linn.) Moench. (Malvaceae), and Basella alba Linn. (Basellaceae) exhibited pseudoplastic non-Newtonian rheology. The highest DPPH radicalscavenging and metal-chelating activities were observed in the mucilages from B. alba (microwave, 3 min) and A. esculentus (microwave, 1 min) with the SC50 and MC50 values (50% of scavenging activity and 50% of metal chelating activity, respectively) of 0.71 ± 0.32 and 1.11 ± 0.52 mg/ml, respectively. Most mucilages exhibited no cytotoxicity to normal human gingival fibroblasts. The mucilage from A. esculentus (microwave, 5 min) gave the shortest wetting time of 2.75 ± 0.51 min. The highest S. mutans adhesion inhibition was observed in A. esculentus (pH 11) of 5.39 ± 9.70%. Discussion and conclusion: This study has indicated the suitable physicochemical and biological properties and the potential application of mucilages from Thai plants for artificial saliva preparation. © 2015 Informa Healthcare USA, Inc.

Thai/Lanna medicinal plant recipes have been used for the treatment of several diseases including liver cancer. In this study, methanolic extracts (MEs) of 23 plants were tested for antiproliferative activity on human hepatoma cell line (Hep G2) by the sulforhodamine B (SRB) assay. Nine MEs with potent antiproliferative activity (IC50 < 100 μg/mL) were obtained and further semipurified by liquid/liquid partition extraction. The semipurified fractions were tested for the antiproliferative and antioxidative activities. ME of Stemona collinsae and the semipurified extract and methanol-water fraction (MF) of Gloriosa superba gave the highest antiproliferative activity on HepG2 which were 4.79- and 50.07-fold cisplatin, respectively. The semipurified fractions showed an increased antiproliferative activity. MF of Caesalpinia sappan and HF of Senna alata showed the highest free radical scavenging and metal chelating activities, respectively. The compound in n-hexane fraction (HF) of Ventilago denticulata which showed an increase in antiproliferative activity comparing to its ME was isolated and identified as emodin. This study has demonstrated the potential of the ME from S. collinsae, MF from G. superba, and emodin isolated from V. denticulata, for further development as an antiliver cancer agent. © 2015 Aranya Manosroi et al.

Ethnopharmacological relevance: Thai/Lanna region has its own folklore wisdoms including the traditional medicinal plant recipes. Thai/Lanna medicinal plant recipe database "MANOSROI III" has been developed by Prof. Dr. Jiradej Manosroi. It consists of over 200,000 recipes for all diseases including cancer. To investigate the anti-proliferative and apoptotic activities on human colon cancer cell line (HT-29) as well as the cancer cell selectivity of the methanolic extracts (MEs) and fractions of the 23 selected plants from the "MANOSROI III" database. Materials and methods: The 23 selected plants were extracted with methanol under reflux and evaluated for their anti-proliferative activity by sulforhodamine B assay. The 5 plants (Gloriosa superba, Caesalpinia sappan, Fibraurea tinctoria, Ventilago denticulata and Psophocarpus tetragonolobus) with potent anti-proliferative activity were fractionated by liquid-liquid partition to give 4 fractions including each hexane (HF), methanol-water (MF), n-butanol (BF) and water (WF) fractions. They were tested for antiproliferative activity and cancer cell selectivity. The ME and fractions of G. superba which showed potent anti-proliferative activity were further examined for morphological changes and apoptotic activities by acridine orange (AO)/ethidium bromide (EB) staining. Results: The ME of G. superba root showed active with the highest anti-proliferative activity at 9.17 and 1.58 folds of cisplatin and doxorubicin, respectively. After liquid-liquid partition, HF of V. denticulata, MFs of F. tinctoria, V. denticulata and BF of P. tetragonolobus showed higher anti-proliferative activities than their MEs. The MF of G. superba indicated the highest anti-proliferative activity at 7.73 and 1.34 folds of cisplatin and doxorubicin, respectively, but only 0.86 fold of its ME. The ME and HF, MF and BF of G. superba and MF of F. tinctoria demonstrated high cancer cell selectivity. At 50 μg/ml, ME, HF, MF and BF of G. superba demonstrated higher apoptotic activities than the two standard drugs. Conclusions: This present study has not only confirmed the traditional use of the Thai/Lanna medicinal plant recipes for cancer treatments, but also the potential of the selected plant, G. superba for the further development as a modern anti-cancer drug. © 2014 Elsevier Ireland Ltd.
