ANTI-INFLAMATORY ACTIVITY OF STEM AND LEAF JUICE OF ACACIA ARABICA WILDAbstract
Herbal drugs constitute a major part in all the traditional systems of medicine. From the literature review, it comes to know that Acacia arabica stem is used as a chewing stick and claimed to be useful for bleeding gums and pain related to it. In some communities use of leaves is also known. The components are taken from live parts as they are, without allowing them to dry for a long period, which may lead to enzymatic degradation over the process of drying. The juice is dried at room temperature to avoid degradation of heat sensitive moiety if any, that may be present in the juice. This dried juice is expected to have properties which will be useful for the treatment of inflammation. The properties analyzed here are the anti-inflammatory activity of stem and leaf juice. The objective of the proposed study is to perform the phytochemical studies on the fresh juice of babul stem and leaves. It is further envisaged to study anti-inflammatory properties of the dried fresh juice.
