Seeds of Mucuna pruriens were tested for drug induced myelosuppression test using cyclophosphamide as cytotoxic drug. Ethanolic extract (50, 100 and 200mg/kg body weight, orally) its chloroform soluble fraction and insoluble fraction (50, 80 and 100 mg/kg body weight, orally) were studied on albino rats. Results of present finding suggests the ethanolic extract and its both chloroform soluble and insoluble fractions significantly (p<0.05) protect the effect of cyclophosphamide as observed by hematological studies. These investigations justifies the diversified use of Mucuna pruriens in the traditional system of medicine.
