ABSTRACT
The present study was conducted to study the phytochemicals and evaluate the antiulcer activity of extracts of leaf extract of Ixora Coccinea Linn. The extract at different doses used showed good anti ulcer activity which has been done significantly. These results were also comparable to Famotidine, the reference drugs used in this study. The overall experimental results suggests that the biologically active phytoconstituents such as flavonoids and glycosides present in the methanolic extract of plant Ixora Coccinea Linn, may be responsible for the significant antiulcer activity. Therefore, results justify the use of Ixora coccinea Linn as an antiulcer agent.
