The preliminary phytochemical screening showed the presence of alkaloids, flavonoids, tannins and glycosides. Crude methanolic extract with other partitionates were subjected to bioactivity guided investigations such as anti-nociceptive (central and peripheral), anti-inflammatory, antipyretic, antihelmintic, antidepressant, cytotoxicity, antioxidant, antimicrobial, antidiarrhoeal and thrombolytic activity. Analysis reveals Lasia spinosa can be used in different purpose.
