Abstract : To explore activities antimicrobial, thrombolytic, cytotoxic of the ethyl acetate extract and n-hexane extract of Ipomoea pes-tigridis leaves. Antimicrobial study was measured by noticing zone of inhibition. In vitro thrombolytic activity by clot lysis method and cytotoxic activity was considered by using brine shrimp lethality bioassay.Anti-microbiological screening ethyl acetate extract of leaves showed mild antimicrobial activity with zone of inhibition ranging from 11 to 14 mm and n hexane also showed mild antimicrobial activity with zone of inhibition ranging from 4 to 9 mm as compared to standard ciprofloxacin (zone of inhibition of 50 mm). In vitro thrombolytic model was applied to find out the clot lysis effect of ethyl acetate and n-hexane extracts of Ipomoea pes-tigridis where streptokinase and water were employed as a positive and negative controls, respectively. The extracts showed thrombolytic activity 14.90% and 8.18%. In Brine Shrimp Lethality Bioassay, ethyl acetate extract of Ipomoea pes-tigridis exhibited LC50 at 14.125Î¼g/ml and n hexane extract of Ipomoea pes-tigridis exhibited LC50 at 33.113Î¼g/ml and which showed that the extract is pharmacologically dynamic. Investigation disclosed that the plant is pharmacologically active and it possesses mild antimicrobial activity, thrombolytic activity as well as remarkable cytotoxic effect. Thus , this plant can be a good source of some useful drugs of therapeutic.
