In vitro evaluation of fibrinolytic and antioxidant activities of Maba buxifolia (Rottb.) Juss. stem

Author(s): Srinivasa Reddy Ch, Ammani K, Rose Mary T
Abstract: Studying medicinal plants are more important in recent times to determine their potential source of new drugs. Present study was carried out to investigate fibrinolytic and antioxidant activity of methanol extract of Maba buxifolia stem. In vitro clot lysis was done by using urokinase as standard, and the total antioxidant activity by the phosphomolybdenum assay method. The efficacy of methanol extract of Maba buxifolia stem is based on the percentage of clot lysis, showed highest fibrinolytic and antioxidant activity equivalent to ascorbic acid. The present study revealed the fibrinolytic and antioxidant activity potential of methanol extract of Maba buxifolia plant stem to some extent optimistic pointing to the value of further studies in this field.
