The aim of this study is to investigate the anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant activities of the sample isolated from the ethyl acetate fraction of flowers of Tabebuiarosea. Anti-inflammatory activity of the sample was determined by HRBC membrane stabilization and Albumin denaturation methods. Anti-oxidant activity of the sample was determined by DPPH assay and ABTS method. The results of the study suggest that the sample isolated from the ethyl acetate fraction possesses anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory activity.
Keywords: Tabebuiarosea, Antioxidant activity, Anti-inflammatory activity, HRBC method, Albumin denaturation, DPPH, ABTS assay.
