The methanol extract of Centella asiatica was estimated for thrombolytic effect. The extract demonstrated moderate thrombolytic activity which was 25.01 % where as the thrombolytic activity of standard was found 88.23 %. Thrombolytic indicates that have potent clot lysis property and anti-oxidative activity. The result showed momentous effect with comparison to standard thrombolytic agent, streptokinase. The obtained results support for the uses of this plant as traditional medicine.

    Reteplase (Retavase) is a plasminogen activator, mimicking endogenous tissue plasminogen activator (t-PA), a serine protease, converting plasminogen to plasmin and thereby precipitating thrombolysis. It is a third-generation recombinant form of t-PA that operates in the presence of fibrin (i.e....
