Evaluation of genetic potential of Bacopa monnieri extract in Mouse bone marrow cells by chromosomal analysis test

Shilki Vishnoi 1* and R.C. Agarwal

Herbs have always been used as a common source of medicines, the Bacopa monnieri is an important herb used in Aruveda as a traditional medicinal system of India. In the present investigations, the genotoxic potential of Bacopa monnieri Hydromethanolic extract (BMH) was evaluated employing Chromosomal analysis assay invivo. BMH was administered to Swiss Albino mice as i.p. dose of 80mg/kg, 160mg/kg, 240mg/kg body wt., 24 hours prior the administration of cyclophosphamide (CP) (positive control) at the dose of 50 mg/kg body wt. A dose-dependent, significant decrease in chromosome aberration was observed with respect to control. Result suggested that BMH have a preventive potential against CP induced chromosomal aberration in Swiss albino mouse bone marrow cells at the dose tested. Therefore seems to have a preventive potential against Chromosomal aberrations in Swiss Albino mouse bone marrow cells.
