DIURETIC AND NEPHROPROTECTIVE ACTIVITY OF FRUITS OF FRAGARIA VESCA LINN.Abstract
Diuretic activity and nephroprotective activity of different extracts of fruits of fragaria vesca in rat was studied. The study suggested that the extracts have good diuretic property. Diuretic study was carried out as per Lipschitz method. Where successive aqueous, ethonolic and petroleum extracts were studied for diuretic activity. The 6 hrs acute study of successive aqueous, ethonolic extracts showed increase in urine volume and K+ ion excretion as compared to control. However, advanced toxicological studies remain to be performed in rodents. Fruit extracts have shown moderate nephroprotective effect against gentamicin induced nephrotoxicity.
