Objectives: To evaluate invitro anti-inflammatory activity of hydroalcoholic extract of Ananas cosmosus fruit peel by HRBC membrane stabilisation.
Methods: Hydroalcoholic extract was prepared by soxhlet extraction and thereafter subjected for membrane stabilisation assay to evaluate anti-inflammatory property. 10% human red blood cell suspension was subjected to hyptonicity induced hemolysis and inhibition of membrane damage by the extract was compared to the standard drug diclofenac sodium.
Results: Hypotonicity induced HRBC membrane lysis was inhibited by hydroalcoholic extract of Ananas cosmosus fruit peel in a concentration dependent manner. Hydroalcoholic extract showed 72.86% protection of HRBC membrane at 250µg/ml and showed significant membrane stabilisation compared with standard drug diclofenac sodium at the same concentrations.
Conclusion: Ananas cosmosus fruit peel extract showed appreciable HRBC membrane stabilisation and may have potential anti-inflammatory property. Further analysis is to be carried out to isolate active chemical constituent responsible for anti-inflammatory activity and its mechanism involved.
