Antifertility effect of some chromatographic fractions of Daucus carota
A number of chromatographic fractions of Daucus Carota seeds possessing antifertility activity have been tested to find out the days of pregnancy on which it exerts their antifertility action in female albino rats. The chloroform and methanol fractions of the petroleum ether extract and the chloroform : methanol (9 : 1 v/v) fraction of the alcoholic extract acts mainly as antizygotic agent. The chloroform fraction of the aqueous extract acts as both blastocystotoxic and anti-implantation while ethyl acetate fraction of the aqueous extract acts as anti-zygotic or/and blastocystotoxic agent.
