Materials and Methods

Materials and Methods should include concise details on the methodology adopted, sufficient to repeat the experiment. Extracts and/or fractions tested for in vitro or in vivo biological activities should be chemically defined, at least by means of the results of preliminary phytochemical screening. Complete formulation details of all crude drug mixtures, chemical synthesis and extracts should be mentioned. The plant name should be fully mentioned when cited first, and the authors are asked to add the details regarding its identification, voucher herbarium specimen number and name of the herbarium institution where it has been deposited. The statistical method and the level of significance chosen should be clearly stated. Results all results presented in tabular or graphical form shall be described in this section. All Tables and figures must have a title and a legend to make them self-explanatory and they should be given numbers. Materials and methods should be complete enough to allow experiments to be reproduced.

Results

Results should be presented with clarity and precision.

Discussion

The Discussion should interpret the findings in view of the results obtained in this and in past studies on this topic.

Conclusions

State the Conclusions in a few sentences at the end of Discussion.

Acknowledgements
