The pharmacological studies of anti-diarrhoeal activity of Gentianopsis paludosa were carried out. The 75% ethanol extract (100-400 mg/kg) of Gentianopsis paludosa inhibited castor oil-induced diarrhoea and also reduced gastrointestinal motility in the charcoal meal test in mice. In the rabbit-isolated ileum, the extract showed inhibitory effects not only on its spontaneous contraction, but also on acetylcholine (Ach, 0.1 mM)- and KCl (60 mM)-induced contractions. Furthermore, the ethanol… CONTINUE READING
