An in-vitro study of the antibacterial and anti-inflammatory activity of alkaloid extract from Desmodium gangeticum leaves


S Chithra

This study was designed to determine whether the alkaloid extract from the leaves of Desmodium gangeticum has antibacterial and/or anti-inflammatory activity in vitro study to investigate the mechanism of antibacterial and anti-inflammatory activity. Additionally, this study sought to define the chemical composition of D. gangeticum. Results indicated that alkaloid extract from the leaves of D. gangeticum showed significant antibacterial activity in vitro efficacy. Moreover, alkaloid extract from the leaves of D. gangeticum significantly inhibit lipoxygenase and albumin denaturation. In conclusion, data demonstrate that alkaloid extract from the leaves of D. gangeticum has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory activities in vitro condition. The anti-inflammatory effect appears to occur, at least in part, through the inhibition of lipoxygenase. Moreover alkaloids are probably the active components in Desmodium gangeticum that utilize antibacterial and anti-inflammatory activities.
