Evaluation of anti-hyperuricemic activity of alcoholic extract of Capparis moonii Wight fruits in Wistar rats, by utilizing Indian caper typically occurring in the Konkan area which grows full-fledged in the hot and dry atmosphere that can be generally found throughout asia. The dried fruits of Capparis moonii W. were extracted using absolute ethanol to get an alcoholic extract. Acute oral toxicity studies were performed to decide the doses. The anti-hyperuricemic activity was estimated by the phenol red excretion in rats and the potassium oxonate induced hyperuricemia models respectively. The alcoholic extract showed dose-dependent mode of action where the higher concentration of 200 mg/kg showed higher amount of retention of phenol red in the blood suggesting that it has better ability to secrete urate out of the body of rats as compared to 100mg/kg. Also in potassium oxonate induced hyperuricemia, similar results were obtained with significant reduction in serum uric acid levels and serum creatinine levels as compared to 100mg/kg. The conclusion of this study was that; it proved that Capparis moonii W. alcoholic extract of the fruits can be beneficial as anti-hyperuricemic treatment agent. It would be encouraging to undertake further studies in future to decode the exact mechanism.
