COMPERATIVE STUDY OF RIVEA HYPOCRATERFORMIS, CYNODON DACTYLONE AND BALANITE AEGYPTICAE USING ANTILITHIATIC ACTIVITY IN VITROAbstract
Ethanolic extracts of Rivea hypocraterformis, Methanolic extract of Cynodon dactylone and Water extract of Balanite aegypticae were tested for their in vitro antilithiatic /anticalcification activity by the homogenous precipitation method. The extracts were compared with an aqueous extract of cystone (a marketed preparation) for their activities. Extracts of Rivea hypocraterformis showed activity almost equivalent to cystone while Cynodon dactylone and Balanite aegypticae showed less activity.
