Evaluation of central nervous system depressant activity of Cleome rutidosperma
AbstractThe central nervous system (CNS) depressant activity of the ethanol extract (200 and 400 mg/kg) and its fractions (200 mg/kg each) of the aerial parts of Cleome rutidosperma was investigated in various models. The tested extract and its fractions showed significant (P<0.01) anxiolytic, anticonvulsant activity (in treating petit mal epilepsy) without any unwanted sedation effect. These findings justify the traditional use of this plant in CNS disorders.
