The main objective of this study was to evaluate in vitro antilithiatic activity of ethanolic extract of roots of Ipomoea digitata Linn. Inhibitory effect of extract on in vitro crystallization was analysed by nucleation assay. Cystone tablet a marketed drug used as a standard drug which is dispersed into 100ml buffer solution for compare of various concentration of ethanolic root extract of Ipomoea digitata Linn. The inhibitory activity of root extract on the nucleation of calcium oxalate crystals and the rate of aggregation in calcium oxalate crystals was determined by spectrophotometric assay. Investigation revealed that ethanolic extract of roots of Ipomoea digitata Linn is positive effect on inhibition for formatting precipitation of calcium and potassium in vitro.
