Abstract

A plant is any plant which, in one or more of its organs, contains substances that can be used for therapeutic purposes, or which are precursors for semi-synthetic compounds. When a plant is designated as ‘medicinal’, it is implied that the said plant is useful as a drug or therapeutic agent or an active ingredient of a medicinal preparation. Medicinal plants may therefore be defined as a group of plants that possess some special properties or virtues that qualify them as articles of drugs and therapeutic agents, and are used for medicinal purposes. The present study entitled the “Pharmacognostic, Phytochemical and Pharmacological evaluation of the Leaves of Citrullus lanatus (Thunb.) Matsum. & Nakai. (Cucurbitaceae)” focuses on a plant which is commonly available throughout India and traditionally used in treatment of various ailments. Studies on the leaves of Citrullus lanatus are still lacking. Hence to exploit its potential use prompted the present study to investigate the leaves of this plant with clear scientific protocol
