The pygmy chimpanzee, a species of the genus Pan, family HOMINIDAE. Its common name is Bonobo, which was once considered a separate genus by some; others considered it a subspecies of PAN TROGLODYTES. Its range is confined to the forests of the central Zaire basin. Despite its name, it is often of equal size to P. troglodytes.
Cyclopentanophenanthrenes with a 5- or 6-membered lactone ring attached at the 17-position and SUGARS attached at the 3-position. Plants they come from have long been used in congestive heart failure. They increase the force of cardiac contraction without significantly affecting other parameters, but are very toxic at larger doses. Their mechanism of action usually involves inhibition of the NA(+)-K(+)-EXCHANGING ATPASE and they are often used in cell biological studies for that purpose.
A cardiotonic glycoside obtained mainly from Digitalis lanata; it consists of three sugars and the aglycone DIGOXIGENIN. Digoxin has positive inotropic and negative chronotropic activity. It is used to control ventricular rate in ATRIAL FIBRILLATION and in the management of congestive heart failure with atrial fibrillation. Its use in congestive heart failure and sinus rhythm is less certain. The margin between toxic and therapeutic doses is small. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p666)

Any compound that contains a constituent sugar, in which the hydroxyl group attached to the first carbon is substituted by an alcoholic, phenolic, or other group. They are named specifically for the sugar contained, such as glucoside (glucose), pentoside (pentose), fructoside (fructose), etc. Upon hydrolysis, a sugar and nonsugar component (aglycone) are formed. (From Dorland, 28th ed; From Miall's Dictionary of Chemistry, 5th ed)
C(23)-steroids with methyl groups at C-10 and C-13 and a five-membered lactone at C-17. They are aglycone constituents of CARDIAC GLYCOSIDES and must have at least one double bond in the molecule. The class includes cardadienolides and cardatrienolides. Members include DIGITOXIN and DIGOXIN and their derivatives and the STROPHANTHINS.

A group of islands in Melanesia constituting a French overseas territory. The group includes New Caledonia (the main island), Ile des Pins, Loyalty Island, and several other islet groups. The capital is Noumea. It was discovered by Captain Cook in 1774 and visited by various navigators, explorers, and traders from 1792 to 1840. Occupied by the French in 1853, it was set up as a penal colony 1864-94. In 1946 it was made a French overseas territory. It was named by Captain Cook with the 5th and 6th century A.D. Latin name for Scotland, Caledonia. (From Webster's New Geographical Dictionary, 1988, p830 & Room, Brewer's Dictionary of Names, 1992, p375)
The collective name for the islands of the Pacific Ocean northeast of Australia, including NEW CALEDONIA; VANUATU; New Hebrides, Solomon Islands, Admiralty Islands, Bismarck Archipelago, FIJI, etc. Melanesia (from the Greek melas, black + nesos, island) is so called from the black color of the natives who are generally considered to be descended originally from the Negroid Papuans and the Polynesians or Malays.

Epilepsy, Temporal Lobe
A localization-related (focal) form of epilepsy characterized by recurrent seizures that arise from foci within the temporal lobe, most commonly from its mesial aspect. A wide variety of psychic phenomena may be associated, including illusions, hallucinations, dyscognitive states, and affective experiences. The majority of complex partial seizures (see EPILEPSY, COMPLEX PARTIAL) originate from the temporal lobes. Temporal lobe seizures may be classified by etiology as cryptogenic, familial, or symptomatic (i.e., related to an identified disease process or lesion). (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p321)
Seizures that occur during a febrile episode. It is a common condition, affecting 2-5% of children aged 3 months to five years. An autosomal dominant pattern of inheritance has been identified in some families. The majority are simple febrile seizures (generally defined as generalized onset, single seizures with a duration of less than 30 minutes). Complex febrile seizures are characterized by focal onset, duration greater than 30 minutes, and/or more than one seizure in a 24 hour period. The likelihood of developing epilepsy (i.e., a nonfebrile seizure disorder) following simple febrile seizures is low. Complex febrile seizures are associated with a moderately increased incidence of epilepsy. (From Menkes, Textbook of Child Neurology, 5th ed, p784)
Central Nervous System Infections
Pathogenic infections of the brain, spinal cord, and meninges. DNA VIRUS INFECTIONS; RNA VIRUS INFECTIONS; BACTERIAL INFECTIONS; MYCOPLASMA INFECTIONS; SPIROCHAETALES INFECTIONS; fungal infections; PROTOZOAN INFECTIONS; HELMINTHIASIS; and PRION DISEASES may involve the central nervous system as a primary or secondary process.
A disorder characterized by recurrent episodes of paroxysmal brain dysfunction due to a sudden, disorderly, and excessive neuronal discharge. Epilepsy classification systems are generally based upon: (1) clinical features of the seizure episodes (e.g., motor seizure), (2) etiology (e.g., post-traumatic), (3) anatomic site of seizure origin (e.g., frontal lobe seizure), (4) tendency to spread to other structures in the brain, and (5) temporal patterns (e.g., nocturnal epilepsy).

Antiarin - Wikipedia
Antiarins are cardiac glycoside poisons produced by the upas tree (Antiaris toxicaria). There are two forms, α-antiarin and β-antiarin. β-Antiarin, a cardiac glycoside steroid, can be isolated from upas tree latex (Antiaris toxicaria). Its use ranges from medical use, such as hypertension treatment, to arrow poison application. It also proves to be more poisonous than curare, sporting a low LD50 of 0.1 mg/kg in most mammals. To date, β-antiarin has only been isolated from the upas tree by the scientist H. Kiliani in 1896; no synthetic synthesis has yet been achieved. Upon β-antiarin poisoning, when observed in animals such as frogs and small mammals, visible symptoms include muscle spasms - particularly of the head and neck - and excess defecation. Paralysis can also be presented before death. The primary physiological system affected is the cardiac muscle, though gastro-intestinal tissue has also been known to be severely affected by this type of poisoning. Convulsions and spasms are not ...

Tropical herb found to prevent death of brain tissue after a stroke, study - NaturalNews.com
Natural News) Stroke is one of the few things that often appears on the short list of illnesses that doctors - as well as the media - often refer to as silent killers. It works quietly, in the background, and rather quickly after it starts, so one of the best strategies that you can employ to stand a chance against it is to simply prevent it from happening in the first place.. Indeed, as the saying goes, an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure. But in case you find that its too late to prevent a stroke, new research suggests that you can now use plants that are rich in antioxidant phytochemicals for effective treatment. Researchers looked at one plant in particular, called Antiaris africana Engl. (Moraceae), in order to gather data on its anti-stroke potential.. The logic behind why exactly the researchers sought to determine the efficacy of a plant for the treatment and prevention of stroke is actually rather simple. In their papers introduction, they reason that many drugs ...
Feasibility studies of natural plants coagulants in the removal of selected water contaminants | International Journal of...
The greatest public health concern about water is directed to its ever increasing number of contaminants. Public distribution systems, though accessible only to a limited population, mainly make use of chemicals in the treatment processes. Such water treatment systems overlay burden on the developing nations financial resources. Moreover, reports states that such chemicals can cause severe health hazards. These points out the need for low-cost, replicable non-chemicals, which would be effective in the treatment of water contaminants. In the present study, treatment potentialities of vegetative parts of certain hydrophytic / mesophytic plants like Lagenandra toxicaria Dalz, Aloe barbedensis Mill., Canna indica. L and Bacopa monnieri (L.) Wettst, on Turbidity, Hardness, Iron and microbial count of contaminated water has been worked out.. Batch treatment has been followed and the performance evaluation of plants under varying concentration of plant materials and retention time has been worked out. ...

High Glucose Attenuates Protein S-Nitrosylation in Endothelial Cells | Diabetes
In the present study, we report for the first time, to our knowledge, that high glucose was able to attenuate the overall level of protein S-nitrosylation in primary human endothelial cells. We have identified at least seven proteins that were reduced by high glucose in their S-nitrosylation status as shown in Fig. 1 and Table 1. These decreased S-nitrosylated proteins can be classed as 1) cytoskeleton proteins (β-actin, paxillin, vimentin, and vinculin), 2) metabolic enzymes (eNOS and diacylglycerol kinase-α), 3) chaperone (GRP78), 4) signaling molecules (H-ras and ERK-1), and 5) transcription factor (NF-κB). It is noted that although the level of a vast majority of S-nitrosylated proteins was decreased, the extent of a number of them was actually either increased or unchanged under high-glucose conditions, suggesting a specific role for high glucose in the regulation of protein S-nitrosylation. Because S-nitrosylation has been implicated in the regulation of numerous protein activities ...
