ABSTRACT:
Objective: To evaluate the membrane stabilizing potential and inhibition of protein denaturation property of hydroalcoholic extract Phyllanthus fraternus Webster [PF]. Method – Hydroalcoholic extract of PF was evaluated using the human red blood cells (HRBC) membrane stabilization method as HRBC membranes are similar to lysosomal membrane components. The prevention of hypotonicity-induced HRBC membrane lysis was taken as a measure of anti-inflammatory activity of PF extract. While the extract was also incubated with egg albumin and subjected to determination of absorbance and viscosity to assess the anti-inflammatory property. Results- The hydroalcoholic extract of PF in concentration of 25-800 microgram/ml showed a concentration dependent inhibition of haemolysis of erythrocytes induced by hypotonic solution. The hydroalcoholic extract of PF also showed a concentration dependent inhibition of protein (albumin) denaturation with IC50 of 52 microgramml. Conclusion- From the study it can be postulated that the anti-inflammatory activity of Phyllanthus fraternus Webster could be due to its membrane stabilizing action and inhibition of protein denaturation.
