ABSTRACT:
Ichnocarpus frutescens L (Apocynaceae), is a large, branched climbing shrub with white latex in all its parts. It is an important medicinal plant found throughout India. Tribes in India use it as a substitute for sarsaparilla (Hemidesmus indicus) in the treatment of atrophy, convulsions, cough, delirium, dysentery, measles, splenomegaly, tuberculosis, tumour, diabetes, antipyretic, diaphrotic, demulcent and in skin diseases. Phytochemical screening of the plant reports compounds such as flavonoids, triterpenes, phytosterol, glycosides and other phenolic compounds. Pharmacological study reveals hepatoprotective, antioxidant, anti inflammatory, analgesic, antidiabetic and antitumour activity of various parts of the plant.
