ABSTRACT:
The present study was designed to evaluate the anti inflammatory and antioxidant activities of the aqueous extract of Terminalia catappa fruits. Various concentrations of the extract revealed potent anti inflammatory activity which was assessed through the RBC membrane stabilization, percentage inhibition of protein denaturation and percentage inhibition of proteinase. The anti inflammatory activity of the extract was compared with a standard analgesic Aspirin. The extract also exhibited a dose dependent DPPH radical scavenging and Lipid peroxide scavenging activities.
KEYWORDS:
Anti inflammatory activity, Antioxidant, Inhibition of proteinase, RBC membrane stabilization, Terminalia catappa.
