||In this present study, the leaf extracts of Mimosa pudica were subjected to a comparative evaluation of the
membrane stabilization, thrombolytic and cytotoxic activity to brine shrimps (Artemia salina). The thrombolytic and
membrane stabilizing activities were assessed by using human erythrocyte and the results were compared with
standard streptokinase (SK) and standard anti-inflammatory drug, acetyl salicylic acid (ASA), respectively. The
extracts demonstrated significant toxicity to A. salina with LC50 values ranging from 1.58 to 3.38 μg/ml as compared
to standard vincristine sulphate (VS, LC50value 0.92 μg/ml). Preliminary phytochemical investigation suggested the
presence of carbohydrates, flavonoids, glycosides and steroids.
