Shukla Sangeeta, R Mathur, AO Prakash
1. The effect of butanolic extract of Pueraria tuberosa DC has been studied on the duration of oestrous cycle in adult cyclic rats.
2. The extract at 150 mg/kg dose induced cornified phase at the initial days of treatment which persisted till the last day of treatment.
3. Induction and persistance of cornification in the oestrous cycle due to the treatment of butanolic extract has been accounted for its estrogenic nature.
