ABSTRACT:
There is an increased in the reports on erythrocyte haemolysis assay being used as a simple and rapid tool for screening of drugs and phytochemicals for anti-inflammatory activity. However, in case of hydroalchoholic extracts, there is a possibility of the trace amounts of methanol retained even after drying. These traces are not acconted in the assay units. The present study was designated to substantiate the effects of low concentrations of methanol on the heat induced haemolysis. It was observed that the presence of methanol at concentrations as low as 0.1 ?l/ml exert significant membrane stabilizing activity. Thus, this assay may give misleading results if the test drug solution contains even slighest amount of methanol. Therefore, Present study suggested that the heat-induced erythrocyte haemolysis assay is not suitable for testing membrane stabilizing and anti-inflammmatory activity of the test samples containing methanol.
