ABSTRACT

Trichodesma indicum Linn R.Br is a common weed in Boraginaceae family. The biosafety and anti inflammatory activity of the methanolic extract was screened by means of using membrane stabilization capacity towards the newly hatched Brine shrimp larvae as well as Human HRBCs suspension respectively. The study showed that it is biologically safe (LD50 891.25mcg/mL) as well as it has a good anti inflammatory activity (71.21 ± 2.06% at 88.89mcg/mL).
