Berberis aristata inhibits PAF induced aggregation of rabbit platelets

, : Berberis aristata inhibits PAF induced aggregation of rabbit platelets. Phytotherapy Research 10(7): 628-630

B. aristata is in use in the Ayurvedic system of medicine for the management of various allergic disorders. The anti-platelet activating factor (PAF) activity of the alcohol extract of roots of B. aristata was studied using rabbit platelets.
