Medicinal value of Sadabahar:

  • Vinca rosea (Catharanthus roseus L.) is native to the Caribbean Basin and has historically been used to treat a wide assortment of diseases. European herbalists used the plant for conditions as varied as headache to a folk remedy for diabetes. The objective of the study is to evaluate the diabetic wound healing activity of Vinca rosea  using the excision wound model in a streptozotocin induced diabetic rats. Present study showed that the ethanol extract of Vinca rosea promotes significant wound healing and closure in diabetic rats compared with mupirocin and further evaluation of this activity in humans is suggested.

  • The present study was carried out to evaluate the antidiabetic activity of Vinca rosea methanolic whole plant extracts in alloxan induced diabetic rats for 14 days. The methanolic whole plant extract at high dose (500?mg/kg) exhibited significant anti-hyperglycemic activity than whole plant extract at low dose (300?mg/kg) in diabetic rats. The methanolic extracts also showed improvement in parameters like body weight and lipid profile as well as regeneration of ?-cells of pancreas in diabetic rats. Histopathological studies reinforce the healing of pancreas, by methanolic Vinca rosea extracts, as a possible mechanism of their antidiabetic activity.

  • While most of the people consider mosquitoes as an annoyance, these tiny assassins have the potential and lethal capacity more than any other group of arthropods. The increasing resistance of mosquitoes to current commercial insecticides has made the problem still worst. An alternative conventional method for this is the utilization of natural products from plants. In this regard shade dried leaf powder of Vinca rosea were used to assess the bioefficacy on Aedes aegypti. The different sized particle powder of 150m, 250m, 500m and 600m were tested for their bioefficacy. Emergence inhibition (EI 50) of 150m particle sized powder was found to be most effective with the (EI 50) of 24.81mg/100ml of water. Growth inhibitory effect was observed during the development.

  • Hodgkin’s disease, lymphosarcoma, and acute leukemia have been studied after treatment with the Vinca rosea alkaloids (vinblastine and vincristine), in order to demonstrate and evaluate the mitosis-arresting effects of the two drugs on the malignant cells. In Hodgkin’s disease aspirates and sections showed a clear-cut metaphase arrest in the post-VLB specimens, chiefly affecting the pre-Sternberg or Hodgkin cells. This effect, besides corroborating the fundamentally stathmokinetic mechanism of VLB in Hodgkin’s disease, was considered an additional factor in confirming the widely proposed conception that these cells represent the fundamentally proliferating and malignant tissue of this disease.
  • In the acute leukemias and lymphoblastosarcomas, cytomorphologic and quantitative studies demonstrated that the oncolytic effects correlated well with the magnitude of metaphasic blockade. It is postulated that only actively proliferating cells—the so-called "growth fraction"—are the target for these alkaloids.
