(48)
• Treatment of BPH (Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy): A double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trial evaluated the efficacy and safety of A. conyzoides in treating benign prostatic hypertrophy in men with medically diagnosed BPH, aged 41-76. Study showed a significant reduction in total IPSS score (p<0.01) and day- and night-time urinary frequency (p<0.01). Results suggest a potential treatment for reducing symptoms of BPH in healthy men. The activity, in part, was attributed to inhibition of 5-alpha reductase enzyme activity. (49)
• Anti-Inflammatory / Antioxidant / Aerial Parts: Study evaluated the effect of methanol extract and flavonoid fraction of aerial parts on carrageenan induced edema in rat. The flavonoids showed strong inhibitory activity on DPPH radical. Anti-inflammatory effect was attributed to the flavonoid fraction through protective action against free radical mediated damage in cells and tissue. Study hypothesizes that flavonoids influence inflammatory gene protein expression. (50)
• Antidiabetic / Hypolipidemic / Antiatherogenic / Leaves: Study evaluated the antidiabetic, antilipidemic, and antiatherogenic effects of leaf extracts of A. conyzoides in STZ-induced diabetic rats. Results significant reduction (p<0.05) in glucose, total cholesterol, triglycerides and LDL concentrations, along with significantly increased (p<0.05) HDL in treated groups. The effect was linearly dose-dependent. (51)
• Haemostatic Effect: Study evaluated the hemostatic effect of A. conyzoides on bleeding in mice induced by the combined use of anticoagulant agents and antiaggregants.
