Title

Pharmacologic screening and bioassay of Philippine Rauwolfias

Author:        

De Leon GV, Arambulo AS, Bernal-Santos RM, Javier E

Abstract

A pharmacologic study of Philippine rauwolfias is being undertaken starting with the species R.samarensis merr. and R amsomiaerotolla A. DC. Crude extracts purified groups of active fractions, and isoalted active principles are being screened and assayed with respect to cardiovascular, respiratory actions and effects on spontaneous motor activity. So far, some fractions appear to elicit potent pharmacologic actions similar, if not identical to those exhibited by alkaloids or active principles of R serpentina Benth
