This comparative study was performed for the evaluation of the thrombolytic and anti-arthritic effects of methanolic leaf extracts of P. acerifolium and S. caseolaris. The thrombolytic activity was evaluated by using the in vitro clot lysis model and anti-denaturation method was performed by using bovine serum albumin (BSA) to evaluate the anti-arthritic potential. Here, the thrombolytic activity of P. acerifolium leaves showed (35.15 ± 1.77)% whereas S. caseolaris leaves exhibited (26.05 ± 0.92)% and standard streptokinase demonstrated (63.54 ± 2.61)%. In the case of anti-arthritic study, P. acerifolium showed (35.48 ± 0.98)% at lower concentration and (76.64 ± 1.29)% at higher concentration and ,S. caseolaris exhibited (27.42 ± 0.98)% and (59.68 ± 1.07)% at lower and higher concentration respectively whereas standard diclofenac sodium showed (52.31 ± 0.56)% at 31.25 µg/ml and (86.67 ± 0.92)% at 1000 µg/ml. The results of these experiments suggest that methanolic leaf extract of P. acerifolium showed higher thrombolytic and anti-arthritic activities than S. caseolaris.
