1.In vitro erythrocyte membrane stabilization potential in some Sri Lankan medicinal plant extracts

By Mayuri Napagoda, Eranda Prathibha, Mohamed Nifras

Pages : 1-3

The red blood cell (erythrocyte) membrane stabilization potential in hydroalcoholic extracts of eight medicinal plants used as anti-inflammatory remedies in Sri Lankan folk medicine was evaluated. The highest membrane stabilizing potential was observed in Hibiscus furcatus (EC50 = 51.92 µg/mL) and this activity was superior to the reference drug (EC50=131.9 µg/mL). The plants used as anti-inflammatory remedies are capable of stabilizing the cellular membranes.
