 Synonyms & Historicals
Veratrum Alkaloids .
Alkaloids, Veratrum .
Alkaloids with powerful hypotensive effects isolated from American or European Hellebore (Veratrum viride Ait. Liliaceae and Veratrum album L. Liliaceae). They increase cholinergic and decrease adrenergic tone with appropriate side effects and at higher doses depress respiration and produce cardiac arrhythmias; only the ester alkaloids have been used as hypotensive agents in specific instances. They have been generally replaced by drugs with fewer adverse effects. .
Alkaloids .
Alkaloids, Plant .
Plant Alkaloids .
Organic nitrogenous bases. Many alkaloids of medical importance occur in the animal and vegetable kingdoms, and some have been synthesized. (Grant & Hackh's Chemical Dictionary, 5th ed) .
Veratrum .
Veratrum nigrum .
False Hellebore .
False Hellebores .
Hellebores, False .
Black False Hellebore .

False Hellebore .
Hellebore, White .
Hellebore, Black .
Black Hellebore .
A plant genus of the family Melanthiaceae with roots that contain VERATRUM ALKALOIDS used as emetics, parasiticides, antihypertensives. The common name "black hellebore" is used for both Veratrum nigrum and HELLEBORUS NIGER. .
Vinca Alkaloids .
Alkaloids, Vinca .
A group of indole-indoline dimers which are ALKALOIDS obtained from the VINCA genus of plants. They inhibit polymerization of TUBULIN into MICROTUBULES thus blocking spindle formation and arresting cells in METAPHASE. They are some of the most useful ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENTS. .
Indole Alkaloids .
Alkaloids, Indole .
Group of alkaloids containing a benzylpyrrole group (derived from TRYPTOPHAN) .
