ARCE-URBINA, María Elena; HUN-OPFER, Cyra  and  MATA-SEGREDA, Julio F.. The aqueous extract of Triumfetta semitriloba (Tiliaceae) does not inhibit the in-vitro hydrolytic activity of the major pancreatic enzymes. Rev. biol. trop [online]. 2003, vol.51, n.2, pp.313-316. ISSN 0034-7744.

The aqueous extract of Triumfetta semitriloba is part of the Costa Rican folk pharmacopoeia. It shows no in-vitro inhibitory action on the hydrolytic activity of porcine pancreatic amylase, lipase or proteases, thus diminishing the concern of intestinal malabsorption in human beings.

Keywords : Triumfetta semitriloba; mozote de caballo; pancreatic enzymes inhibition; obesity; diabetes mellitus.
