Different parts of E. variegata have used in traditional medicine as nervine sedative, febrifuge, anti-asthmatic and antiepileptics.It is having the d-tubacurarine like activity. The present study was under taken to evaluate the cardiac depressant activity of Erythrina variegata in experimental animal model.
Materials and method: Aqueous extract of E. variegata was tested for cardiac depressant action by using frog isolated heart model. Different concentration of atropine sulphate is used along with plant water extract.
Results: The water extract shows the significant cardiac depressant activity.
Conclusion: The present study shows that E. variegata has significant cardiac depressant activity.
