- ... Alpinia speciosa K. Schum, known as colônia (colony), is native to tropical Asia and found in parts of tropical America. Its leaves are used to wrap food, rhizomes for food preparation and seeds for health maintenance, and have been widely used by the population as a diuretic, antihypertensive, antiulcerogenic and sedative. The present study aimed to verify the leishmanicidal and trypanocidal pote ...

- ... Essential oil (EO) of Alpinia zerumbet leaves, at non-toxic concentrations (50–300μg/mL), did not induce genotoxicity in human leukocytes. However, at the highest concentration (500μg/mL) tested caused a reduction in cell proliferation and viability, and an increase in DNA damage. Moreover, in vivo experiments showed that EO (400mg/kg) did not exert mutagenicity on peripheral blood cells and bone ...
