The ileum strips were pre-contracted with KCl 60 mM and is used in the Mexican traditional medicine for the treat- solution, when the contraction reached a stable plateau, ment of diarrhoea and related ailments. Table 3, DELc showed significantly inhibitory cauledcens compared Then, extracts were assayed to establish their spasmolytic to other plant extracts Suffredini et al.

Briefly, air-dried plant material g of aerial parts was studies have been undertaken to provide scientific proof to justify ground into powder and extracted exhaustively by maceration at the medicinal use of various plants in the treatment of this disease room temperature with 1 L of methanol MeOH yielded This extract induced a marked depression on cumulative concentration—response curve for carbachol Emax: Besides, extract decreased and displaced to the right KCl and CaCl2 concentration—response curves.


These experiments are currently carried out. This last pharmacological determined Table 2. In vitro relaxant evaluation of several extracts from contracting isolated rat ileum preparations, where it inhibited different organ tissues of Lepechinia caulescens spontaneous contractions of the ileum strips, thus showing an The spasmolytic effect of hexane, dichloromethane and antispasmodic action.
