    Antioxidant and Anti-Inflammatory Activity of Nilavembu Kudineer Choornam: In Vitro Evaluation
    Author(s): Muthukumaran Pakkirisamy*, Nicholas Daniel and Jayaraj Mani

    This present study was to investigate the invitro antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity of aqueous extract of Nilavembu Kudineer Choornam (NKC). Phytochemical screening that used in the present study was a conventional method. The antioxidant activity was evaluated by various antioxidant assays, including DPPH, Nitric oxide (NO) Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) scavenging and Reducing Power method. The antioxidant activities were compared to an antioxidant Ascorbic acid. The Nilavembu kudineer choornam (NKC) were extracted using water solvent into different concentration (50 mg/mLto 250 mg/mL). Diclofenac sodium was used as the standard. Anti-inflammatory assays were performed by the human red blood cell (HRBC) membrane stabilization method, antiproteinase activity and anti-lipoxygenase activity. Phytochemical screening showed the presence of Alkaloids, Flavonoids, .. View More»
