Asthma, cough, sexual disorders, diarrhea, haematuria, toothache, migraine, eye troubles, gastric problems, scabies Dry fruit Tuberculosis, fever, paralysis, hemorrhoids 41 Pharmacological Activities: FIG.
Aqueous extract of F. The results suggested potential traditional use of F. Anti-inflammatory Activity: A study was investigated for the effect of methanol extract of F.
The methanol extract of leaf inhibited LPS-induced production of NO and proinflammatory cytokines in a dose-dependent manner The methanolic extract of stem bark has shown significant anti-inflammatory activities orally. A significant anti-inflammatory effect has been observed in acute and chronic models of inflammation, the extract also protected mast cells from degradation induced by various degranulators 44, a paste of powdered bark is a good absorbent for inflammatory swellings and can be used to treat burns 45, Analgesic Activity: This activity of stem bark methanolic extract using the acetic acid-induced writhing extension of the hind paw model in mice.
Aspirin was used as standard drugs. It exhibited a reduction in the number of writhing. This suggested that extract showed the analgesic effect probably by inhibiting synthesis or action of prostaglandins Root extracts showed significant antioxidant activity against carbon tetrachloride induced liver injury in rats A recent study has also revealed that the methanol extract contains high total phenolic and total flavonoids contents, exhibits high antioxidant activity The antioxidant activity of the aqueous extract of F.
Since the oxidative stress is the major cause and consequence of Type 2 diabetes. Free radicals generated during oxidative stress damage the insulin receptors and thereby decrease the number of sites available for insulin function. The aqueous extract drug reported to contain tannins, flavonoids, and polyphenols. The results are suggesting that the F. Anticonvulsant Activity: The methanol extract of figs fruits exhibits dose-dependent anticonvulsant activity against maximum electroshock and picrotoxin-induced convulsions through serotonergic pathways modulation.
The anticonvulsant activity of the extract is studied in strychnine-, pentylenetetrazole, picrotoxin- and isoniazid-induced seizures in mice Acute toxicity, neurotoxicity, and potentiation of phenobarbitone induced sleep by extract were also studied Antimicrobial Activity: The antimicrobial activity of ethanolic extracts of F.
The test was performed against four bacteria: Bacillus subtilis, Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and against two fungi: Candida albicans and Aspergillus niger. The chloroform extracts of F. Wound Healing: The wound healing activity was investigated by excision and incision wound models using F. It has been reported that tannins possess the ability to increase the collagen content, which is one of the factors for the promotion of wound healing 48, 2. The ethanol bark extract was reported to possess wound healing Anti-amnesia Activity: The anti-amnesic activity was investigated using methanol extract of figs on scopolamine-induced anterograde and retrograde amnesia in mice.
Figs were known to contain a high serotonergic content, and modulation of serotonergic neurotransmission plays a crucial role in the pathogenesis of amnesia Anti-acetylcholinesterase Activity: Methanolic extract of the stem bark of F.
Proteolytic Activity: A comparison of the proteolytic activity of the latex of 46 species of Ficus has been done by electrophoretic and chromatographic properties of the protein components, and F. Bronchospasm Activity: The in-vivo studies of histamine-induced bronchospasm in guinea pigs and in vitro isolated guinea pig tracheal chain and ileum preparation were performed.
Methanolic extract of fruits at doses 0. HPLC analysis of methanolic extract showed the presence of high amounts of serotonin 2. Immunomodulatory Activity: The immuno-modulatory effect of alcoholic extract of the bark of F.
The study was carried out by various hematological and serological tests. Administration of extract remarkably ameliorated both cellular and tic rats while there was humoral antibody response.
It is concluded that the test extract possessed promising immunostimulant properties Antibacterial and Antitumor Activity: The aqueous, methanol and chloroform extracts of the leaves of Ficus religiosa were evaluated for their antibacterial and antitumor activities.
These extracts showed an elevated level of antibacterial activity and reduced antifungal activity. The most sensitive organisms S.
Aqueous and methanolic extracts were found to be less active. The antitumor activity conducted by crown gall potato disc assay proved that all the three extracts are efficient in reducing the tumors formed Antiulcer Activity: The antiulcer potential of the ethanol extract of stem bark of Ficus religiosa against in vivo indomethacin, cold restrained stress-induced gastric ulcer, and pylorus ligation assays were validated. The extract also significantly increased the pH of gastric acid while at the same time reduced the volume of gastric juice, free and total acidities.
The study provides preliminary data on the antiulcer potential of Ficus religiosa stem bark and supports the traditional uses of the plant for the treatment of gastric ulcer Antifungal Activity: The benzene extract of both the plants, i.
Ficus infectoria Roxb. The isolated compounds of both the plants were assayed against its microorganisms Staphylococcus aureus, E scherichia coli, Penicillium gluacum, and Paramecium at a concentration of 0. The results indicate bacterial activity of both the compounds bergapten and bergaptol against S.
Antifungal activity of the compounds against P. Anthelmintic Activity: Ficus religiosa has been used to treat parasitic infections in man and animals.
The anthelmintic effect of methanolic bark extract of F. Adult motile H. Contortus was collected from the gastrointestinal tract of sheep slaughtered at Faisalabad slaughterhouse. It was found that ficin is responsible for the anthelmintic effect in the methanolic extract of F.
Further, studies show that the aqueous extract of the fruit of F. The study of herbal medicine spans the knowledge of pharmacology, history, source, physical and chemical nature, mechanism of action, traditional medicinal, and therapeutic use of the drug.
It is one of the versatile plant having a wide variety of medicinal activities therefore used in the treatment of several types of diseases, for example, Diarrhoea, diabetes, urinary disorders, burns, hemorrhoids, gastrohelcosis, skin diseases, convulsion, tuberculosis, fever, paralysis, oxidative stress, bacterial infection, etc.
Presently, there is an increasing interest worldwide in herbal medicines accompanied by increased laboratory investigation into the pharmacological properties of the bioactive ingredients and their ability to treat various diseases. With the availability of primary information, further studies can be carried out like phyto pharmacology of different extracts, standardization of the extracts, identification and isolation of active principles and pharmacological studies of isolated compound.
These may be followed by development of lead molecules as well as it may serve for the purpose of use of specific extract in specific herbal formulation.
