Isolation of antiulcerogenic compound (AR-I) from Astilbe rivularis leaves and effect of season on yield of the compound
A compound (AR-I) was isolated from Astilbe rivularis leaves. The compound had anti peptic ulcer activity in ethanol induced gastric ulcers and cysteamine induced duodenal ulcers in albino rats. Seasonal variation in concentration of the compound (AR-I) in A. rivularis leaves was studied. Results showed that leaves of A. rivularis for the months of May and June yielded maximum amount of the compound.
