Anti-Oxidant activity and acute toxicity study of the methanolic root extract of Mitragyna inermis

Author(s): Mukhtar M, Adamu HM and Kolo AM
Abstract: The acetone, methanol and water extracts of Mitragyna inermis were investigated for their antioxidant activity and acute toxicity. The result show strong radical scavenging activity against DPPH for all the three extracts. The LD50 of 1264mg/kg was calculated for methanol extracts and the values was found to be within the practically slightly toxic range and therefore care should taken when using the plants in traditional medicine healing.
