Ethanol extract of the stem bark of Streblus asper Lour was considered for qualitative assessment for its secondary metabolites content like alkaloids, glycosides, sterols and others. Bark extract revealed anticarcenogenic i.e. antimitotic, cytotoxic and antitumor activities. Results of different anticarcenogenic activities of the bark extract were discussed in relation to its secondary metabolite contents. DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.3329/bjb.v42i1.15801 Bangladesh J.

Pre clinical studies of Streblus asper Lour in terms of behavioural safety and toxicity
TLDR
On cytotoxicity studies of brine shrimps it was found methanol extract of S. asper (MESA) was weakly toxic, but, in case of acute and sub-acute toxicity study both extracts were found to be non-toxic.
Screening of Medicinal Plants for Secondary Metabolites
TLDR
Qualitative phytochemical analysis of some important medicinal plants confirm the presence of various phytochemicals like saponins, terpenoids, steroids, anthocyanin, coumarins, fatty acids, tannins, leucoanthocyanins and emodins and suggest that the phyt biochemical properties for curing various ailments and possess potential antioxidant and leads to the isolation of new and novel compounds.
