The methanolic extract leaves of Cleome gynandra (Family Capparidaceae) was selected to evaluate the antidiarrhoeal activity against castor oil and magnesium sulphate induced diarrhoea in wistar albino rats. The present study was performed at three different doses of 100 mg/kg, 200mg/kg and 400mg/kg methanolic extract of plant. The Methanolic plant extracts shows more effective antidiarrhoeal activity against castor-oil induced diarrhea compared to magnesium sulphate induced diarrhoea in a dose dependent manner. From the results we conclude that methanolic leaf extracts of Cleome gynandra had reported antidiarrhoeal activity similar to standard drug loperamaide at dose of 3 mg/kg.
