*Swathi G., Monisha M., Bavithra P. S. and Arun P.

ABSTRACT

Magnolia champaca (Family name: Magnoliaceae) is a medicinal plant which is traditionally used against a number of diseases. The flowers are used in Southeast Asia for several purposes. Especially in India, they are primarily used for worship at temples whether at home or out, and more generally worn in hair by girls and women as a means of beauty ornament as well as a natural perfume. The extracts of champaca plant were investigated for antibacterial activity through disc diffusion method against four different bacterial strains using ampicillin as control. Carrageenan has been widely used as a noxious agent able to induce experimental inflammation for the screening of compounds possessing anti-inflammatory activity. Anti-ulcerogenic activity of flower and leaves are evaluated against aspirin induced gastric ulcers in pylorus ligated rats. The anti-ulcer potential is determined by using gastric juice volume, total acidity, pH and ulcer index. Both aqueous and alcoholic extracts of flower and leaves are evaluated for their anti- ulcer potential.

Keywords: Champaca plant; Biological activities; Anti- bacterial; Anti- inflammation; Anti- ulcer.
