ABSTRACT      A number of Bangladeshi medicinal plants have been reported to possess antinociceptive and antioxidant activities.  Many of which have been used in the preparations of the Unani and Ayurvedic traditional medicine.  As a part of our on-going research for exploring the bioactivities of Bangladeshi medicinal plants.  Bala (Hyptis capitata), Kukur-Cita (Litsea glutinosa), and Bonmulo (Fernonia patula) have been studied for their antinociceptive and antioxidant activity together with the phytochemicals namely, alkaloids, flavonoids, steroids, and tannins.  Except for L. glutinosa, the erthanolic extracts of I. patula and H. capitata sigificantly reduced the acetic acid inducted writhing in mice.  In DPPH free radical scavening assay all the extracts showed mild to moderate activity, in which IC50 of H capitata and I. patula were >100 ug/ml and that of L. glutinosa was >500 ug/ml.  (Author's abstract)
