Abstract:
Pseudarthria viscida (L.) Wight & Arn., is a beneficial medicinal plant of India used as traditional medicine to treat several diseases. Due to its potential utilization as a therapeutic agent, it was incorporated in the high trade sourced medicinal plants. Phytochemical analysis has shown the presence of important compounds contributing to the therapeutic value of the plant. This plant has several pharmacological properties supported by in vitro and in vivo studies. Major activities include antibacterial, antioxidant, cytotoxic, antidiarrhoeal, antipyretic, hepatoprotective, anti-inflammatory, antidiabetic, analgesic and wound healing activities. Most of the therapeutic activities of the roots of this plant have been ascribed to its phytocompounds such as flavonoids. Indiscriminate utilization of this plant makes it vulnerable medicinal plant. Limited research has been conducted on micropropagation and conservation of the plant. Therefore, the present review compiles the micropropagation, phytochemical and pharmacological data to enable the researchers for future research.
