Afr J Biotechnol ;7: Since the LC 50 values for both the 12 h and 24 h observation were higher than 1. Thrombolytic activities of Spilanthescalva and Leucas zeylanica. In case of antimicrobial screening, crude extracts of root, flower, leaf and stem showed notable antibacterial activity against tested microorganisms.

Separation of Leucas asperaa medicinal plant of Bangladesh, guided by prostaglandin inhibitory and antioxidant activities. These results imply that the ethanolic root extract shows slightly higher radical scavenging activity which may be attributed to its stronger proton-donating anti,icrobial.
