The plant Macaranga peltata (Euphorbiaceae) leaves and stem bark was tested for its in vitro antioxidant, antimicrobial and cytotoxicity activity using different methods. In vitro anti oxidant activity Stem Bark extract showed Inhibitory concentration 50 % (IC50) value of 10.13 than the Leaf extract IC50=14.85 for DPPH Assay. Standard Ascorbic acid showed IC50=7.28. For ABTS free radical scavenging activity Leaf extract IC50=7.61 showed better activity than the Stem Bark extract IC50=9.77… Expand
