COMPARISON, FORMULATION DEVELOPMENT AND BASIC EVALUATION OF IN-VITRO ANTI-UROLITHIATIC POTENTIAL OF OCIMUM TENUIFLORUM AND MENTHA PIPERITA MEDICINAL PLANT SPECIESAbstract
Urolithiasis or kidney stones is defined as a urinary stone originating anywhere in the urinary tract. Urolithiasis plays a significant economic burden in the healthcare system, especially in developing countries, owing to changes in food habits and lifestyle due to a significant increase in the disease over the last few decades. Medicinal plants are established as renewable sources with antiurolithiatic activity. There are many Marketed formulations with Antiurolithiatic activity as well as many traditional medicinal plants primarily used to dissolve urinary stones in the kidney or urinary bladder. The comparative study of Ocimum and Mentha plant species is carried out for studying In-vitro ant-urolithiatic activity. Further, the extract showing the most prominent activity is taken, and formulation syrup is prepared. This study is based on studying the in-vitro Anti urolithiatic potential of Ocimum tenuiflorum Linn. and Mentha piperita Linn. belonging to the family Lamiaceae.
