An aqueous extract of Lepidium latifolium L. given orally and intraperitoneally considerably enhanced urinary excretion (UV) in rats with respect to control groups. A slight increase in ion excretion was also observed. Other parameters such as specific gravity, nitrite, pH, glucose, ketone bodies, urobilinogen, and blood were also studied. A good correlation for the dosage rat/man for the aqueous extract was achieved.
