In Vivo and In Vitro Studies on Neutralizing Effects of Acorus calamus and Withania somnifera root extracts against Echis carinatus venom
S. Meenatcisundaram , M. Sindhu
Abstract:   (127 Views)
Neutralization effects of Acorus calamus and Withania somnifera root extracts were tested against Echis carinatus venom. Both plant extracts were effectively neutralized the various pharmacological activities induced by Echis carinatus venom. About 0.14 mg of Acorus calamus and 0.16 mg of Withania somnifera root extracts were able to completely neutralize the lethal activity of 2LD 50 of Echis carinatus venom. Various pharmacological activities like haemorrhagic, coagulant, edema and phospholipase activities were effectively neutralized by both plant extracts. The above observations confirmed that both plant extracts possess potent snake venom neutralizing compounds, which inhibit the activity of Echis carinatus venoms.
