Abstract

As Alkaloids known for their pharmaceutical importance; this research included the extraction of crude alkaloids of three plants (Zingiberofficinale Roscoe, Thymus vulgaris L. and Acaciaarabica L.) and evaluate their activity as coagulant agent by using three degraded concentrations of each plant extract and tested them on lab mice through the observation of the variations in bleeding time(BT), clotting time(CT), platelet, red blood cells(RBC), packed cell volume(PCV), white blood cells (WBC) and hemoglobin counts(Hb) with Calcium count (Ca) in blood. The results revealed differences in the percentage of alkaloids in the plants under the study; Zingiber was the higher one followed by Thymus and Acacia respectively.Zingiberwas also the most effective plant as coagulant factor than other two plants as it decreased both BT and CT and increased platelets, RBC, PCV, WBC and Ca count. more than what T. vulgaris and A. arabica affected on blood characters mentioned before.
