The Parkinson’s disease is mainly distinguished from other diseases based on the key feature that is tremors. Oxotremorine induced oxidative stress is implicated as a common pathway in development of Parkinson’s symptoms like, tremor, salivation and temperature variation. Hence Oxotremorine-induced tremor model was used to evaluate antiparkinsonian drugs. Different extracts of plant of Cassia tora such as, petroleum ether (200mg/kg) p.o., methanolic (200mg/kg) p.o. and ethyl acetate extract (200mg/Kg) p.o. were used to investigate antiparkinsonian effect on oxotremorine induced Parkinson’s symptoms in mice. Procyclidine, an anticholinergic, antiparkinsonian drug was administered as a standard drug at a dose of 5mg/kg p.o., 1hr prior the administration of oxotremorine (0.5mg/kg) S.C. Methanolic extract at 200mg/kg p.o route of administration decreased (p<0.05) Parkinson’s symptoms, while petroleum ether extract (200mg/kg)p.o and ethyl acetate extract (200mg/kg)p.o shows moderate action. This study suggests that cassia tora is a plant with possible therapeutic value for Parkinson’s disease.
