ABSTRACT

Euphorbia hirta Linn. is a common herb belonging to the family Euphorbiaceae, which is frequently seen everywhere in Rajasthan.

It is used in different systems of medicine in the treatment of diarrhoea, bronchitis, skin diseases, fever, analgesic, gastrointestinal disorders, vomiting, wound healing, respiratory diseases, pulmonary disorders etc. The plant has been used as antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor, antiamoebic, antifertility, antimalarial, antioxidant, sedative, cytotoxic, aflatoxin inhibition, larvicidal, immunomodulatory and so on. The aim of current ethnopharmaceutical documentation on this medicinal plant was to pile up the enormous amount of fresh information of scientific research and reports available in different aspects that proves its involvement in pharmacology.
