Antidiarrheal, Analgesic and Pediculicidal Activities of Gymnosporia royleana

The present study deals with the scientific validation of some of the important folk uses of Gymnosporia royleana like antidiarrheal, analgesic and pediculicidal uses, by employing castor oil-induced diarrhea, acetic acid-induced writhings, hot plate-induced pain and filter paper diffusion bioassay models.


Objective: In order to scientifically validate the folk uses, extracts of aerial parts of Gymnosporia royleana were screened for in-vivo antidiarrheal and analgesic activity and in-vitro pediculicidal activity.
