The anti-spasmodic activity was estimated using isolated jejunum and ileum (Gilani et al., 2005; 2006).Isolated rabbit jejunum: The relaxant effect of test material was calculated as % variation in spontaneous contractions of the jejunum of rabbit.Isolated guinea-pig ileum: The contractile reaction to the test substances was surveyed as the percent of the maximalreaction prepared by acetylcholine (0.3 M) as the control drug prior to the addition of test substances (Gilani and Aftab, 1992).Determination of calcium channel blocking activity: The mechanism of the antispasmodic action was determined by the possible effects of the crude plant extracts on high K+ (80 mM)-induced contractions as described by Farre et al.
