Botany Pako is a terrestrial fern with a creeping rhizome and stout black roots on the under-surface. Compactly situated leaves are borne spirally, reaching a height of 1 meter or more. Rhizome bears narrow, tapering toothed scales, about 1 centimeter long. Leaves are 2- or 3-pinnate; 50 to 80 centimeters long; the pinnules are lanceolate, 5 centimeters long, and rather coarsely toothed.

Sori are superficial and elongate, arranged in pairs on the side of the veins or veinlets. Distribution - Widely distributed in the Philippines, common on gravel bars and banks of streams. Constituents - Rich in micronutrients, beta-carotene, folic acid, minerals Ca, Fe, and P. Anti-nutritional factors like phytic acids, trypsin, and tannins are present, but in quite safe quantities. Oven dried samples yielded Cardiac glycosides, leucoanthocyanins, phytosterols, diterpenes, and triterpenes were detected only in the ethanol extract.

Total phenolic contents were Miscellaneous values were ascorbic acid Tetracycline was the reference standard antibiotic. All extracts mixed in equal proportion with the antibiotic were more effective against the bacteria than the antibiotic alone. A few samples of Diplazium esculentum showed moderate levels, while most samples had no detectable Pta presence.

Aqueous and ethanol extract showed protective activity in in vitro passive anaphylaxis. Both also showed marked protection against induced mast cell degranulation. Results clearly substantiated the beneficial effects of the vegetable fern.

All extracts showed significant anthelmintic activity, with the ethanolic extract showing the more potent activity. Two of the twenty-six tested vegetables, Pak Good Athyrium esculentum and Pak Van Marsilea crenata showed thiaminase activity. Pak Good also showed a thermostable factor, together with eighteen other vegetables. Results showed all extracts exhibited anti-inflammatory activity, more in the chloroform extract group than other treated groups.

Ibuprofen was used as standard drug. All extracts showed anti-inflammatory activity, with the chloroform extract showing higher percentage of inhibition. Ibuprofen was used as standard. Chloroform and methanol extracts showed strong antioxidant activity in cupric ion reducing capacity assay. Extracts showed strong antimicrobial activity, with the chloroform extract showing zones of inhibition of S. Cytotoxic activity was evaluated by brine shrimp lethality bioassay. BDE fed mice showed a significant decrease in body weight and relative spleen weight.

There was significant dose-dependent decrease in the number of cultured splenocytes and dose dependent increases in percentage inhibition of splenocyte proliferation as well as percentage hemolysis by in vitro assays. Results suggest consumption of D. An aqueous extract showed potent analgesic activity with marked beneficial effects against central and peripheral inflammatory pain models.

The protective action may be attributed to the presence of flavanoid and sterols. Results showed analgesic activity increasing as the dose increases. Study also studied the NP as catalyst in degradation of methylene blue and rhodamine dyes and investigated the ability of AgNPs to inhibit coagulation of human blood plasma.

Blechnum orientale, Davalia denticulata, Diplazium esculentum, Nephrolepis biserrata, and Pteris vittata. Diplazium esculentum a-glucosidase inhibitory activity was considerably stronger than myricetin and the four other medicinal ferns. Dominant compounds were n-hexadecanoic acid, tetradecanoic acid, di-n-octyl phthalate, tetra pentacotaine, octadecanoic acid.

N-hexadecanoic acid Palmitic acid has known antioxidant, hypocholesterolemic, pesticide, lubricant, antiandrogenic properties, among others. Di-n-octyl phthalate has antifungal properties. Octadecanoic acid has potential antibacterial and antifungal activity.

The plant was non-toxic to the experimental model. Results showed hepatoprotective activity with inhibitory effects on CCl4-induced hepatotoxicity. Results suggest intake of D. The extract showed potent radical scavenging activity with IC50 Results suggest a potential source of natural antioxidants. The water extract 7. Study concluded that linguda caused mild pathologic effects in rats while feeding of frozen linguda induced mortality and moderate type of clinico-pathological effects in guinea pigs.
