Objective: The alcoholic extract of stem bark of Terminalia arjuna (ALTA) was screened for antioxidant and antimutagenic (anticlastogenic) activity. Methods: Antioxidant property was dacettievrimtyi,n elidp ibdy p1e,r1o,Dxiidpahtyionny l,a2s sPayic arynld h tyodtaral zpyol l(yDpPhPeHn)o laicss acyo,n tseunpte wr aosx iddeet erramdiicnaeld s cbayv Fenogliinn-g Ciocalteau’s reagent. Antimutagenic activity was evaluated using micronucleus test in mice. Results: The ALTA has shown potent antioxidant activity with EC50 of 2.491依0.160, 50.110依0.150 & w71h.0ic0h0 依i0s .2c5o0m ipna rDaPbPleH waistsha ya,s csuorpbeirco xaicdied rwaditihc al scavenging activity and lipid peroxidation assay, respectively.

Conclusions: These results suggested that ALTA possess significant antioxidant and antimutagenic activity.
