Studies
Antiviral / Anti-Hepatitis B: (1) Studies of extracts have shown marked anti-hepatitis B surface antigen activity possibly through inhibition of viral genetic material. (2) A study reports P niruri has profound effects in vitro on HBsAg, on woodchuck hepatitis virus surface antigen (WHsAg) and on the DNAp of both viruses and in vivo on the replication of WHV (woodstock hepatitis virus) and in some controlled studies, it appeared to eliminate WHV from carriers.
Hypolipidemic: Studies have demonstrated lipid-lowering effects in triton and cholesterol fed hyperlipidemic rats
Anti-diabetic: (1) Studies have shown potential anti-diabetic action of PN. (2) Study of aqueous extract of the plant yielded alkaloids, flavonoids and saponins. Administration of aqueous extracts in mice showed a significant decrease in blood glucose with a significant effect in controlling the loss of body weight. Results showed a hypoglycemic effect in diabetic rats with no evidence of hepatotoxicity.
Anti-malarial: Extract studies of Pyllanthus niruri showed inhibitory activity of Plasmodium falcifarum.
Calculi dissolution: Although test did not show prevention of further growth, PN modified the shape and texture of the stone into a more fragile form which may help in elimination and dissolution.
Platelet Aggregation Inhibition: Methyl brevifolincarboxylate, isolated from PN, was found to have inhibitory effects on platelet aggregation. (5)
Hepatoprotective / Nimesulide Induced Toxicity: Study showed PN to possess hepatoprotective activity against nimesulide-induced liver toxicity, probably through an antioxidant defense mechanism. Another study demonstrated a protein fraction of PN to be protective against acetaminophen hepatotoxicity by increasing antioxidative defense.(6)
Calcium Oxalate Crystal Growth and Aggregation Inhibition: Study showed an inhibitory effect of P niruri extract on CaOx crystal growth and aggregation in human urine, suggesting an interference with the early stages of stone formation and presents an alternative form of treatment and / or prevention of urolithiasis. (11)
Antihyperuricemic Effect: Study showed the methanol extract of P niruri and its lignans were able to reverse the plasma uric acid of hyperuricemic animals. The effect could be through its uricosuric action and partly through xanthine oxidase inhibition. The antihyperuricemic effect of the lignans was attributed to their uricosuric action. A methanol extract of leaves showed dose-dependent oral antihyperuricemic activity in potassium oxonate- and uric acid-induced hyperuricemic rats. (12)
Acute Toxicity Study / Leaf Extract Effect: Study of aqueous leaf extract was done in female Sprague-Dawley rats to illicit evidence of toxicity. No toxicity was observed at various levels of testing. The LD50 of the aqueous extract is >5000 mg/KBW. (15)
Effects of HIV Replication: P. niruri has shown marked inhibitory effect on hepatitis B virus. Study investigated the anti-HIV effects of an alkaloidal extract of P. niruri in human cell lines. Results showed the extract exhibited a sensitive inhibitory response on cytopathic effects induced by strains of HIV on human MT-4 cells in the tested concentrations. (16)
Antihyperuricemic / Lignans / Phyllanthin: A methanol extract of leaves showed dose-dependent oral antihyperuricemic activity in potassium oxonate- and uric acid-induced hyperiuricemic rats. Fraction purification yielded four lignans -- phyllanthin, hypophyllanthin, phyltetralin and niranthin. Phyllanthin showed the highest dose-dependent antihyperuricemic effect. (17)
Antifertility: Study of aqueous extract of Phyllanthus niruri in Male albino rats showed dose-dependent antifertility effects, with reduction in fructose level of the seminal fluid, decreased sperm motility, sperm count and sperm viability. (18)
Gastroprotective: Study was done for gastroprotective activity of P. niruri leaf extract against ethanol-induced gastric mucosal injury in Wistar rats. Results showed promotion of ulcer protection with comparative decreases in ulcer areas, inhibition or reduction of edema and leukocyte infiltration of the submucosa. (19)
Anti-Tumor / Chemopreventive / DMBA-Induced Papillomagenesis: Study in male Swiss albino mice evaluated the anti-tumor activity of a hydro-alcoholic extract of whole plant on two stage process of skin carcinogenesis induced by topical application of DMBA. Results showed significant anti-tumor activity, with significant reduction in tumor incidence, tumor yield, tumor burden and cumulative number of papillomas.
(20)
Antidiabetic: Study evaluated the antidiabetic potential of methanol extract of aerial parts in normal and alloxan-induced diabetic rats. Results showed dose related reduction of fasting blood sugar with suppression of postprandial rise of sugar after a heavy glucose meal in normoglycemic rats. Results suggest the extract of aerial parts has great potential as anti-diabetic remedy. (21)
Attenuation of Chlorpyrifos-evoked Erythrocyte Fragility and Lipoperoxidative Changes: Study of methanolic extract in Wistar rats showed protective effect from CPF-induced increased in erythrocyte fragility and lipoperoxidative changes, probably due to its flavonoid contents' antioxidant activity. (22)
Antioxidant / Hepatoprotective / Kidney and Testes Effects: Study evaluated the effects of aqueous extracts of P. niruri on liver, kidney, and testes of CCl4-induced hepatotoxic rats. Results showed P. niruri has antioxidant and hepatoprotective activity associated with deleterious effects on kidney and testes. (23)
Diuretic: An aqueous extract was studied for diuretic activity in albino rats. Results showed significant increase in volume of urine and excretion of sodium, potassium and chloride. (24)
Hepatoprotective Against Thioacetamide-Induced Liver Cirrhosis: Study evaluated the protective role of PN extract against liver cirrhosis induced by TAA in rats. Results showed progression of liver cirrhosis induced by TAA in rats can be intervened using the P. niruri extract, with effects comparable to silymarin. (25)
Hepatoprotective Against Alcohol and Other Hepatotoxicants: Study showed a hepatoprotective effect against alcohol and several hepatotoxicants. PN can potentially inhibit the transcription of pro-inflammatory cytokines (TNFa) produced by kupffer cells. The hepatoprotective effect is attributed to bioactive compounds such as lignans, alkaloids, terpenoids,and tannins, especially phyllanthin and hypophyllanthin, quercetrin, astragalin, gallic acid, elagic acid and corilagin.
Antimicrobial: Extracts of leaf, stem, root, and fruit were evaluated for antimicrobial activity. Ethanol, water, n-butanol extracts of leaf, stem and fruit parts were found to be effective against most of the human pathogenic microorganisms. (27)
Anti-Lithiatic / Leaves: In vitro study evaluated various extract for anti-urolithiatic effect with two standard drugs, Neeri and Cystone as control. Results showed the water extract of leaves to have anti-urolithiatic effect, equal to cystone in dissolving the exiting calcium oxalate crystals. A methanol extract was second in anti-lithiatic activity. (29)
NSPN in Acute Tonsillopharyngitis: A comparative, parallel, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study examined the clinical effectiveness of NPSN extract containing Nigella sativa and Phyllanthus niruri extracts. Study found the NSPN to be safe and well tolerated in acute tonsillopharyngitis patients, with significant benefits as compared to placebo. (
30)
Analgesic / Antipyretic: Study evaluated aqueous and ethanolic extracts of P. niruri for analgesic and antipyretic effect using the Tail Immersion Model and Brewer's Yeast Induced Pyrexia Model respectively. The extracts showed better analgesic and anti-pyretic potential when compared to standard drugs. (
31)
Lipid Lowering: Study showed break-stone herb extract significantly lowered lipid levels of VLDL and LDL in experimental cholesterol-fed hyperlipemic rats. (
32)
Antibacterial: Study evaluated various extracts of whole plant, stem, leaf, roots of P. niruri for antibacterial activity against six pathogenic organisms viz. K. pneumonia, E. coli, P. aeruginosa, S. aureus, S. typhi, and P. mirabilis. Results showed significant antibacterial properties. The whole plant extract showed the most activity against the test bacteria. Staphylococcus aureus was the most susceptible to the ethanolic extracts.
(
33)
Wound Healing / Leaves: Study evaluated the would healing activity of P. niruri leaves extract in experimentally wounded adult male Sprague Dawley rats. Results showed dressing with Phyllanthus niruri extracts, as topical application on wounds, enhanced wound healing process significantly. (
34)
Anti-Cataract Potential / Galactose Induced Cataractogenesis: Study evaluated the anti-cataract effect of phyllanthus niruri both in vivo and in vitro galactose induced cataract. PN significantly delayed the onset and progression of cataract in vivo. Lenses treated with PN 880 µg/mL concentration showed higher levels of glutathione (GSH) and decreased levels of polyols in vitro. (
35)
Antimetastatic and Apoptotic Effects: Study evaluated the antimetastatic potential of Phyllanthus niruri, P. urinaria, P. watsonii, and P. amarus on lung and breast cancer carcinoma cells. The plant extracts were shown to inhibit MCF-7 (breast carcinoma) and A549 (lung carcinoma) cells growth with IC50 values ranging from 50-180 µg/ml and 65-470 µg/ml for methanolic and aqueous extracts, respectively. Phyllanthus extracts were showed to effectively reduce invasion, migration, and adhesion of both MCF-7 and A549 cells in a dose dependent manner. Phyllanthus showed to be capable of inducing apoptosis in conjunction with its antimetastatic action. The antimetastatic effects is mostly associated to the presence of polyphenol compounds in its extracts. (
36)
Non-Genotoxic: Study evaluated the genotoxic, antigenotoxic, and cytotoxic activities of P. niruri extract in bone marrow of rats. Results suggest P. niruri extract showed no genotoxic, antigenotoxic, and cytotoxic activities under experimental conditions. (
38)
Hypoglycemic Effect: Treatment with P. niruri showed remarkable and significant decrease in blood glucose (p<0.05) compared with control NIDDM patients. Use of capsulated dry powder (250 mg/tab) of P. niruri for 2 months showed no side effects. (
39) Study showed the ethanolic extract of whole plant of Phyllanthus niruri, leaves and fruits of Solanum xanthocarpum and fruits of Solanum melogena may be useful in the treatment and management of diabetes mellitus. (41)
Hematologic Effect: Study evaluated the hematological effects of administering Ipomoea batatas and Phyllanthus niruri in the ICR mice. Results showed P. niruri can increase RBC, hematocrit, and hemoglobin. There were no significant effects noted on WBC count, absolute granulocyte, lymphocyte, and monocyte counts, and platelet counts. Study suggests the effect of I. batatas and P. niruri on different hematologic parameters are due to folic acid and iron which are integral components in the production of RBC and hemoglobin. (
