Luffa acutangula (L) Roxb (Family: Cucurbitaceae) is commonly known as Ridge gourd. It is a widely growing vegetative climber. This plant is valuable for antimicrobial, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, analgesic, abortifacient, anti-tumour, antiulcer, antibacterial, ameliorative, antiproliferative, antiangiogenic, antidiabetic, cytotoxic, hepatoprotective, immunomodulatory and larvicidal effect. This present review is focused on the pharmacognostical characters like scientific classification, vernacular name, chemical constituents, nutritional value and the plant potential in biological activity. This review will be more useful for student further research.
