Abstract

In the present study, aqueous extract of Asparagus racemosus roots and aqueous extract of Tamarindus indica fruit pulp were evaluated for their antiurolithiatic potential in albino rats of Wistar strains. The stones were produced in this study by zinc disc foreign body insertion technique supplemented with 1%ethylene glycol, which is commonly used in these type of studies. The weight of the stones was used as criteria for assessing the preventive or curative effect of the two plants. Two doses of extract for prophylactic and curative groups were used. In both groups the administration of the drugs have resulted in reduction in the weight of stones compared to the control group, but neither was significantly reduced.
