The plants have entire leaves, yellow flowers, and fleshy, edible fruits called nance ; B.

Wikimedia Commons has media related to Byrsonima. Mechanical nociceptive paw, bytsonima and hot plate tests were used to evaluate the antinociceptive activity in mice. An ethnopharmacological survey indicated that the leaves of Byrsonima intermedia A. The phytochemical profile from MBI indicated the presence of phenolic acids, flavanols, oligomeric proanthocyanidins, and flavonoids.

This study employed in vivo inflammatory and nociceptive models to evaluate the scientific basis for the traditional use of Byrsonima intermedia.

The gastroprotective effect of MBI was assessed by analysing the volume of gastric juice, pH, total acidity, mucus, NO, sulfhydryl compound, vanilloid receptor, glutathione GSH levels, and myeloperoxidase MPO activity in the gastric and duodenal mucosa.

United States Department of Agriculture. High-performance liquid chromatography HPLCphytochemistry screening and determination of total phenolics and flavonoids were used to determine the chemical profile of the BiAE.


The antidiarrheal action measured by intestinal motility and diarrhea induced by castor oil and anti-bacterial action of MBI against Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli and Helicobacter pylori were also evaluated by microdilution methods. BiAE markedly exhibits anti-inflammatory action in rats and antinociceptive activity in mice. Byrsonima is one of about 75 genera in the Malpighiaceaea family of flowering plants in the order Malpighiales.

Malpighiaceaea medicinal species commonly found in the Brazilian Cerrado, can be used against gastroduodenal disorders, such as gastric ulcers and diarrhea. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of a methanolic extract of Byrsonima intermedia MBI leaves on gastric and duodenal ulcers and to assess the antimicrobial and antidiarrheal effects of this extract.

The fruits of serrette trees are important in the diets of certain wildlife, such as the golden conure Guaruba guaroubabytsonima the leaves of Byrsonima are food for some of the curious American moth-butterflies Hedylidae.

Thus, it may be useful in the treatment of inflammatory hyperalgesic disorders, which supports previous claims of its traditional use.

Byrsonima intermedia leaves present gastroprotective, healing and antidiarrheal activities, supporting previous claims that its traditional use can treat gastrointestinal disorders. Wikispecies has information related to Byrsonima. The gastric and duodenal healing effects of MBI were also evaluated intrrmedia 7 or 14 days of treatment.

This species has been used as an antimicrobial, anti-hemorrhagic, anti-diarrheal and anti-inflammatory. Retrieved from ” https: In particular in American Englishthey are known as locustberries which also may refer specifically to Byrsonima coccolobifolia or Byrsonima lucida. Nevertheless, scientific information regarding Byrsonima intermedia is ibtermedia there are no reports related to its possible anti inflammatory and antinociceptive effects.

Locustberry (Byrsonima intermedia)

The MBI exert gastroprotective action by participation of endogenous sulfhydryl compounds, vanilloid receptors and increase in GSH level to effective gastric and duodenal protection. They are primarily pollinated by various oligolectic native bees e. Byrsonima comprises over species of treesshrubsand subshrubs found in the New World tropics and subtropics from southern Mexicosoutheastern Floridaand the Caribbean to southeastern Brazil. Another widely seen common name is serrets or serrettes. Archived from the original on This page was last edited on 15 Novemberat This Malpighiaceae article is a stub.
