Smoke-Induced Oxidative Damage/ Protection Effect: (1) Study showed a protective effect of Sesbania grandiflora against cigarette smoke-Induced oxidative damage in Rats: An aqueous suspension of SG provided support for traditional use of SG in the treatment of smoke-related disease. (2) Study showed that S. grandiflora leaves restrain cigarette smoke-induced oxidative dame in liver and kidney of rats. (3)
Antimicrobial / Synergism / Flowers and Tetracycline: Study showed synergism against all 12 bacterial species, the highest synergism attained was against Shigella boydii.(4)
Anxiolytic / Anticonvulsant: Study showed significant delay of onset of convulsions in PTZ- and STR-induced seizures in mice. The triterpene fractions exhibited a wide spectrum of anticonvulsant and anxiolytic activity. (10)
Cardioprotective / Antioxidant: Study showed that chronic cigarette smoke exposure increases oxidative stress and the aqueous suspension of S. grandiflora had a protective effect against oxidative damage through an antioxidant effect. (5)
Anti-Inflammatory: Study evaluated the prophylactic effects of administration of bark extracts of SG and S. sesban on the development of carrageenan-induced paw edema and adjuvant-induced arthritis. A high NO level may suppress immune response probably through inhibition of iNOS expression through a feedback inhibition mechanism.
(8)
Hypolipidemic: A study in Triton induced hyperlipidemic rats showed significant decrease in serum cholesterol, phospholipid, triglycerides, LDL, VLDL and significant increase in HDL. (9)
Forage: Study showed the foliage from S. grandiflora has a high potential as feed for growing goats, as sole component or as supplement. (11)
Anti-Cancer: Study in Ehrlich ascites carcinoma-bearing Swiss albino mice showed the ethanol extract of S. grandiflora was effective in inhibiting the tumor growth in ascitic models that is comparable to 5-fluorouracil. (12)
Anti-Ulcer: Study showed significant reduction in the ulcer index and significant inhibition of gastric mucosal damage induced by aspirin, ethanol, and indomethacin. Results suggest a protective effect that might be mediated by both anti-secretory and cytoprotective mechanisms. (13)
Wound Healing: Study of ethanol flower extract ointment showed greater wound healing contracting ability and significantly increased tensile strength. The wound healing property was attributed to tannin and other nutritious content. (14)
Antibacterial: Phytochemical screening of aqueous extracts yielded carbohydrates, proteins, flavonoids, alkaloids, tannins, and glycosides. Crude leaf powder yielded low antibacterial activity while the nanosized leaf powder (NPL) exhibited the highest level of antibacterial activity. (17)
Hepatoprotective / Toxicity Study / Flowers: Study evaluated the hepatoprotective activity of aqueous and ethanolic extracts of Sesbania grandiflora flowers in CCl4-induced hepatotoxicity model in rats. Results showed a significant hepatoprotective effect, with significant reduction of biochemical parameters and histological confirmation of healing. The extract did not show any mortality up to a dose of 2000 g/kbw. (19)
Hepatoprotective / Fruit Extract: Study evaluated the fruits for in vivo hepatoprotective effects using ethanol as toxicant and silymarin as standard drug in Wistar albino rats. Results showed significant hepatoprotective effect on biochemical parameters, with normal hepatocytes and lobar architecture compared to the toxicant group. (20)
Novel Protein Fraction / Anticancer / Chemopreventive: Study isolated a protein fraction, SF2 (Sesbania fraction 2) from the flower. The SF2 inhib
ited cell proliferation and induced apoptosis in Dalton's lymphoma ascites (DLA) and colon cancer cells (SW-480). SF2 increased the life span and decreased tumor volume in mice bearing tumor. Results suggest a potential anticancer drug candidate. (21)
Antiproliferative / Apoptotic / Leaves: Study evaluated the anticancer properties of the leaves of Sesbania grandiflora tested on various cancer cell lines. A methanolic fraction was found to exert potent antiproliferative effects especially in human cancer cell line, A549, with activation of caspase 3 leading to cell death by apoptosis. (23)
Analgesic / CNS Depressant Activity: Study of a leaf extract of Sesbania grandiflora showed good analgesic and CNS depressant activity. (24)

Antimicrobial / Root Extract: Study evaluated an ethanolic root extract of S. grandiflora for antimicrobial activity. The antimicrobial property suggest potent phytoconstituents and bioactive compounds in the root extract. (26)
Hypoglycemic / Hypolipidemic: Study of a methanolic extract of Sesbania grandiflora showed hypoglycemic and hypolipidemic effect. There was a significant reduction in lipid profile of TC, LDL, VLDL and triglycerides, with an increase in HDL. (27)
In Vitro Hemolytic Effect / Leaves: Aqueous extract of leaves of Sesbania grandiflora produced hemolysis of human and sheep erythrocytes even at low concentrations. The release of phospholipids and sterols into the supernatant as a result of hemolysis suggest possible damage to the erythrocyte membrane. (28)
Apoptotic and Autophagic Effects / Flowers / Human Leukemic Cells: Study investigated the antiproliferative effect of a fraction isolated from SG flowers in cancer cells. Results suggest the fraction triggers pro-oxidant activity and mediates its cytotoxicity in leukemic cells via apoptosis and autophagy, and suggests further investigation for therapeutic potential in the treatment of leukemia. (29)
Antioxidant / Cytotoxic / Anti-Inflammatory / Analgesic / Flowers: A methanol extract of flowers exhibited maximum radical scavenging activity on NO, superoxide, and OH radical assays. Extract also exhibited potential cytotoxic activity against human cervical cancer cell line HeLa. It showed significant inhibition of inflammatory activity using a carrageenan and cotton pellet induced models and analgesic effect on hot plate pain model. (30)
Protection Against Cigarette Smoke-Induced Oxidative Damage: Study evaluated the possible protective effect of an aqueous suspension of S. grandiflora leaves against cigarette smoke-induced oxidative damage in rats. Results suggest supplementation with the leaf suspension reversed the cigarette smoke induced oxidative damage in rats through its antioxidant potential. (31)
Antituberculosis Activity: Study on roots isolated three isoflavanoids viz., isovestitol, medicarpin, and sativan, together with betulinic acid. All four compounds exhibited antituberculosis activity against Mycobacterium tuberculosis H37Rv. MIC values were 50 µg/mL for compound 1-3, 100 µg/mL for compound 4. A methanol extract exhibited antituberculous activity of 625 µg/mL.(see constituents above) (33)
Hypoglycemic / Flowers: Study investigated the hypoglycemic activity of aqueous extract of Sesbania grandiflora flowers among nonhuman primates with alloxan induced diabetes. First and second phase toxicity test of the tea fractionate of flowers showed no toxicity effect for test animals as evidenced by zero mortality rate. There was hyperactivity on the second day of observation. Tea fractionate (aqueous extract) of SG flowers and insulin had similar effects on blood glucose which can reduce almost 90-95% of the blood glucose levels of diabetic-induced monkeys. (34)
Anthelmintic / Flowers: Study investigated various extracts of flowers for anthelmintic activity against Pheretima posthuma. Results showed significant dose dependent anthelmintic activity. Activity was attributed to glycosides, alkaloids and tannins content. (36)
Immunomodulatory / Flowers: Study investigated the immunomodulatory activity of Sesbania grandiflora on cellular and humoral immunity. Oral administration of methanolic extract of flowers in mice dose-dependently enhanced the production of circulating antibody titre in response to SRBC. There was significant potentiation of delayed-type hypersensitivity reaction induced by sheep red blood cells. Results indicate the methanolic extract of SG possesses potential immunomodulatory activity. (37)

Neutraceutical / Potential Antidiabetic Benefit: Review focuses of Sesbania grandiflora as a medicinal plant with antioxidant activities. The plant contains alkaloids, flavonoids, saponins, tannins, diterpenes, triterpenoids, glycosides, and phenols—phytochemical substances that may have a major impact on diabetes mellitus. (38)

Herbal Gel Formulation / Leaves: Study evaluated the formulation of an herbal gel containing Sesbania grandiflora leaves, reporting on physiochemical formulation parameters (pH, viscosity, spreadablity, etc.) Formulation F5 containing 2.5% SG extract showed better stability than other formulations, showing no irritant effect on skin application. (40)
Anthelmintic / Leaves: Study evaluated leaves of Sesbania grandiflora and fruits of Solanum torvum for anthelmintic activity against Ascaridia galli. Results showed both plant extracts could serve as effective alternative anthelmintics replacing synthetic helminticides. (42)
Attenuation of Erythrocyte Membrane Oxidative Stress in Diabetic Rats: Study investigated the protective effects of S. grandiflora flower extract on erythrocyte membrane in STZ-induced diabetic male albino rats. Results showed reduced blood glucose and glycosylated hemoglobin levels with increased levels of insulin and hemoglobin, together with reversal of protein and lipid peroxidation markers, osmotic fragility, membrane bound ATPases activities. Findings suggest a protective effect on diabetes by decreasing oxidative stress-related diabetic complications. (44)
Gel Drug Formulation for Bacterial Conjunctivitis / Flowers: Study evaluated the preparation of in situ gel formulations for S. grandiflora flower extract for antimicrobial use. The G4 batch of in situ gel of the flower extract showed activity against microorganisms P. aeruginosa, S. aureus, E. coli and fungus C. albicans which cause bacterial conjunctivitis. It provided sustained release of the drug up to 8 hours.   (45)
Inhibition of Advanced Glycation Endproduct (AGE) / Antihyperglycemia: Study evaluated Advanced Glycation Endproduct (AGE) and early glycation (HbA1c) inhibition by the greens of Sesbania grandiflora. A methanol extract inhibited the formation of early glycation by 50% (HbA1c 4.69%). The ME also significantly inhibited α-amylase (52%) and α-glucosidase (56%). Derivatives of piperidine, cinnamaldehyde, and linolenic acid were proven anti-diabetic agents. Findings suggest further investigation for the potential of an anti-diabetic drug. (46)
