Abstract The safety and effectiveness of many of the medicinal plants used in traditional medicine by rural people with little or no access to allopathic drugs is yet to be evaluated. With this in mind, Ozoroa and Searsia (previously known as Rhus ) species traditionally used in South Africa to treat microbial infections and gastrointestinal disorders were selected for in vitro evaluation of biological activities and cytotoxicity. Phenolic-enriched leaf extracts were prepared using mixture of 1… Expand
