A pharmacological screening was conducted on 101 methanolic extracts from 31 medicinal plants chosen among the more widely used plants in Rwandese traditional medicine. Twenty four extracts from 13 plants have shown spasmolytic properties, while 35 extracts from 15 plants contain spasmodic active principles. Ten extracts from 8 plants have shown considerable toxicity and 3 extracts from 2 plants have revealed curarizing properties.
