Lantana camara is to be a tackler in Indian ethanopharmacology. It is found commonly every where even on waste land, road side, dry places and spread vigorously on cultivated ground. The aim of present study is to evaluate pharmacological effect ursolic acid steroyl glucoside obtained from lantana camara on lipid profile of high fat diet (58%) induced hyperlipidemia. Administration of high fat diet increase the lipid profile of the animals significantly as compared to normal control. Treatment with the ursolic acid steroyl glucoside for 12 weeks. Decreased the lipid parameters as compared to disease controls. The study shown promising effect in lowering of body weight and by other pharmacological parameter. we concluded that ursolic acid derivative of lantana camara have a potent anti hyperlipidemic activity.
