S Nayampalli Sunanda, NK Desai, SS Ainapure
1. The anti-allergic properties of an aqueous extract of the stem of Tinospora Cordifolia was evaluated on histamine induced bronchospasm in guineapigs, capillary permeability in mice and mast cell disruption in rats.
2. The extract significantly decreased the bronchospasm induced by 5% histamine aerosol, decreased capillary permeability and reduced the number of disrupted mast cells in the above experimental animals respectively.
