  • Abstract

    The medicinal plants are widely used by the traditional medical practitioners for curing various diseases. In traditional systems of medicine, different parts like leaves, stem, flower, root, seeds and even whole plant of of plant Solanum xanthocarpum Schrad. & Wendl. (Solanaceae) are used. It is commonly known as Yellow Berried Nightshade (syn: kantakari). It is a prickly diffuse bright green perennial herb, woody at the base and 2–3 m in height. It is found throughout India mostly in dry places as a weed on roadsides and waste lands. The fruit is used as anti-asthmatic, hypoglycaemic, anti-inflammatory, antitumor, anti-tussive, antifeedant, antipyretic, antispasmodic, anti-histaminic, hypotensive, antianaphylactic and cytotoxic activity. Till today there is no detailed standardisation work reported for the Solanum xanthocarpum. Physicochemical parameters like preliminary characteristics, toxic heavy metals, pesticide residue, aflatoxin and microbial contamination analysis were carried out. The study revealed different parameters of the crude drug which will be useful in identification and control of adulterations.
