People of uttermost parts of the world are eagerly looking for the all time best remedies of herbal drugs.Nowadays herbal
drugs came to scene and drawing focus because of their efficacy and cost effectiveness. According to W.H.O. from ancient
times to this modern Era recognition and application of herbal drugs is greatly appreciated. The present study was designed
to evaluate the phytochemical composition, antioxidant and anti-epileptic activities of methanoland hexaneextracts of
has been extensively used in Ayurveda system of medicine for various ailments.It belongs
to the family Euphorbiaceae. It occurs throughout tropical India and Sri Lanka and in South Africa, as well as in Pakistan.
The leaf extracts possesses steroids, triterpinoids, saponins, flavonoides, carbohydrates, glycosides, amino acids and phenolic
compounds. The obtained extracts were tested for antioxidant activity was studied using DPPH, ferric educing antioxidant
potential (FRAP), thiobarbituric acid (TBA), respectively. From the two extracts, the methanol extract showed good antioxidant
activity compared to hexane.Of the various methods used for inducing experimental epileptic models, the intracortical
administration of ferric chloride (FeCl(3)) into sensorimotor cortex induces recurrent seizures and epileptic discharge in
S.D rats. Study was observed on effect of Acalypha extract on the behavioralchanges in FeCl(3)-induced rat epileptogenesis.
Topical administration of FeCl(3) (5 microL; 100 mM) into the sensorimotor cortex of rats showed an increase in the wet dog
shake behavior, spike wave discharges. Treatment with
extract (200 mg/kg b.w., p.o. for 14 days) decreased
the WDS behavior.This study clearly showed that methanol extract of
possesses the ability for preventing the
development of FeCl(3) induced epileptogenesis, which in turn exhibit the potentiality of
to be developed as
an effective anti-epileptic drug.
