A plant genus of the family BOMBACACEAE. The fine silky hairs covering the seeds have been used like kapok (CEIBA) for floatation, stuffing, and insulation.

Hypotensive activity and toxicology of constituents from Bombax ceiba stem bark. (1/5)

A novel constituent, shamimicin, 1"', 1"""'-bis-2-(3,4-dihydroxyphenyl)-3,4-dihydro-3,7-dihydroxy-5-O-xylopyranosyloxy- 2H-1-benzopyran along with lupeol, which possesses potent hypotensive activity, has been isolated from Bombax ceiba stem bark. BCBMM--one of the most active hypotensive fractions has revealed its adverse effects on heart, liver and kidneys of mice at the dose of 1000 mg/kg/d.  (+info)

A new sesquiterpene lactone from Bombax malabaricum. (2/5)

A new sesquiterpene lactone, 5-isopropyl-3-methyl-2,4,7-trimethoxy-8,1-naphthalene carbolactone (1) together with a known naphthoquinone, 8-formyl-7-hydroxy-5-isopropyl-2-methoxy-3-methyl-1,4-naphthoquinone (2) were isolated from the root bark of Bombax malabaricum. The structures of these two compounds were established by extensive one- and two-dimensional (1D- and 2D)-NMR spectral studies.  (+info)

Analgesic and antioxidant activity of mangiferin and its derivatives: the structure activity relationship. (3/5)

Mangiferin, 2-beta-D-glucopyranosyl-1,3,6,7-tetrahydroxy-9H-xanthen-9-one, obtained directly from methanolic extracts of Bombax ceiba leaves in substantial amounts demonstrated strong antioxidant activity (EC(50) 5.8+/-0.96 mug/ml or 13.74 muM) using DPPH assay comparable to rutin, commonly used as antioxidant for medical purposes. The acetyl and cinnamoyl derivatives were found to be less active than mangiferin whereas, methyl and 3,6,7-trimethylether tetraacetate derivatives were inactive implying that for antioxidant activity, free hydroxyl groups and catechol moiety are essential. Moreover, mangiferin showed hepatoprotective activity against carbon tetrachloride induced liver injury further supporting the free radical scavenging property in the in vivo system. Additionally, plant extracts and mangiferin failed to exhibit acute anti-inflammatory activity whereas, it displayed significant analgesic effect in acetic acid-induced writhing and hot plate tests in mice. Using naloxone, it was revealed that plant extracts induced analgesia was independent of opioid receptor, whereas, mangiferin demonstrated significant interaction with it at peripheral site with a slight contribution at the neuronal level.  (+info)

In vivo antitrypanosomal effects of some ethnomedicinal plants from Nupeland of north central Nigeria. (4/5)

Four medicinal plants Acacia nilotica, Bombax buonopozense, Terminalia avicennioides and Zanthoxylum zanthoxyloides traditionally used for treatment of sleeping sickness in Nupeland were investigated for in vivo antitrypanosomal activity. Methanol extracts of different parts of each plant (stem barks and fruits) were obtained and evaluated for their in vivo antitrypanosomal activities against Trypanosoma brucei brucei. Phytochemical screening of the methanol extracts of each plant were performed by standard procedures. Methanol extracts of A. nilotica (stem bark), B. buonopozense (stem bark), T. avicennioides (round fruit) and Z. zanthoxyloides (stem bark) were effective on trypanosomes. The extracts of A. nilotica and B. buonopozense exhibited antitrypanosomal effects at 200 and 300 mg/kg body weight respectively. Doses were able to clear the parasites from circulation within 6 and 7 days of treatment respectively with prolonging survival period of up to 30 days. While the extracts of T. avicennioides and Z. zanthoxyloides showed trypanostatic effects and could not clear the parasites completely. The methanol extracts of these plants contain metabolites that are associated with antitrypanosomal effects; therefore, these medicinal plants may be sources of new compounds that may be active against T. b. brucei. This study has also justified the claim that some medicinal plants of Nupeland possess antitrypanosomal activity and could be useful in the management of trypanosomiasis.  (+info)

Effect of methanol extract of Bombax malabaricum leaves on nitric oxide production during inflammation. (5/5)

In different parts of India, Bombax malabaricum DC. (Family: Bombacaceae), a lofty deciduous tree with large leaves, is traditionally used in inflammation. The aim of the present study was to confirm its antiinflammatory activity and to search for the possible mechanism of action for methanol extract of Bombax malabaricum leaves (MEBM). The anti-inflammatory activity of MEBM was evaluated in a carrageenan-induced model of acute inflammation. As inflammation usually involves increased nitric oxide (NO) production, effect of MEBM on lipopolysaccharide-induced NO production in mouse peritoneal macrophages was studied to evaluate its possible mechanism of action. It was found that MEBM was non-toxic up to a dose of 2 g/kg for mice and rats, orally. MEBM (100, 200, and 400 mg/kg) significantly reduced carrageenan-induced rat paw edema (p < 0.05, p < 0.01, p < 0.001, respectively). In mice peritoneal macrophages, the IC50 for MEBM was 258.33 +/- 6.96 microg/mL and it was non-toxic up to 125 microg/mL. MEBM (0-100 microg/mL) reduced lipopolysaccharide-induced NO production in macrophages in a dose-dependent fashion (p < 0.001). Hence, MEBM possesses antiinflammatory activity, mediated through inhibition of NO production.  (+info)

"Bombax" is a term that refers to a genus of flowering plants in the family Malvaceae, also known as the mallow family. The most well-known species in this genus is Bombax ceiba, which is commonly called the red silk-cotton tree or the kapok tree. This tree is native to tropical and subtropical regions of Asia, Africa, and Australia.

The bark, leaves, and seeds of Bombax species have been used in traditional medicine systems for various purposes, such as treating fever, diarrhea, and skin diseases. However, it's important to note that the use of these plants as medicinal remedies should be done under the guidance of a qualified healthcare professional, as they can also have potential side effects or interact with other medications.

Therefore, "Bombax" is not typically used in medical terminology as a specific diagnosis or treatment, but rather refers to a type of plant that has been used in traditional medicine practices.
