The same chromatographic methods are applicable to both the cardenolides and the homologous bufadienolides. In plants, they occur in the form of glycosides. Groups of cardiac steroids Cardioactive steroids are grouped in two categories; Cardenolides Bufadienolides Cardenolides are found. Two classes have been observed in Nature: 1. cardenolides and 2. bufadienolides. The cardenolides have an unsaturated butyrolactone ring.

Many genins have OH groups at and positions. This perennial plant is native to Europe and in the temperate zones of Asia. Cardiac steroids are widely used in the modern treatment of congestive heart failure and for treatment of atrial fibrillation and flutter.

Difference between Cardenolides and Bufadienolides: Erysimi herba et semen. Bufanolides Cardiovascular system drug stubs. The main glycosides include purpurea glycoside A, purpurea glycoside B and purpurea glycoside C, digitoxin, gitoxin and gitalotoxin.

Some plant and animal species use cardenolides as defense mechanisms, notably the milkweed butterflies. The cardenolided moiety at C position is an important structural feature.



The fine powder of the dried leaves is used in pharmaceutical technology for preparing pellets. The drug can be used for the treatment of mild cardiac insufficiency and nervous heart carrdenolides.

Formerly the drug was used for the treatment of mild cardiac insufficiency. The characteristic constituents of the drug are bufadienolides.

Baker, from which the membranous outer scales have been removed. Views Read Edit View history. In Hungary it is protected because of its rare occurrence. The cardioactive constituents of the drug in a pure crystalline form are used for the preparation of injections.

Leonuri cardiacae herba may be combined with Crategi folium cum flore hawthorn leaf and flower in herbal teas. Adult and elderly daily dose: Basic structures of Aglycone Cardenolides are found more commonly compared to Bufadienolides that are less abundant in plant kingdoms.

Digitoxin digitoxose 3 -digitoxigenin.

This perennial or biennial plant is native to central and south-eastern Europe. The drug consists of the whole or cut, dried flowering aerial parts of Leonurus cardiaca L.
