Abstract


Clinacanthus nutans commonly known as Belalai gajah (Malay), Phaya yo (Thai) is traditionally used medicinal plant. The plant is used in skin rashes, snake bites, lesions caused by herpes simplex virus, diabetic myelitis, fever, diuretics and green tea and served as fresh drink. The phytochemical constituents existing in the plant comprise lupeol, b –sitosterol, stigmasterol, Botulin, myricyl alcohol C-glycosyl flavones (vitexin, isovitexin, shaftoside, isomollupentin 7-O-b -glucopyranoside, orientin and isoorientin),sulfur-containing glucosides, cerebrosides mixer, a monoacylmonogalactosylglycerol,13-hydroxy-(13-S)-phaeophytin b, Pupurin-18-phytyl ester, phaeophorbide and chlorophyll derivatives. Pharmacological studies reported anti-Papillomavirus Infectivity, anti-viral activity on varicella-zoster virus, anti-inflammatory activity, anti-herpes Simplex virus type 1 and type 2 activity, anti-oxidant and protective effect against oxidative induced hemolysis.
