Medicinal plants, also called medicinal herbs, have been discovered and used in traditional medicine practices since prehistoric times. In the present study, methanolic leaves extract of Tecoma stans was screened for immunomodulatory activity using anti-oxidant activity by determining DPPH radical scavenging activity, Hydrogen peroxide scavenging activity, Ferric reducing antioxidant power assay, Immunomodulatory activity by Nitroblue tetrazolium test. The extract showed that the plant extracts have ability to act as free radical scavengers in DPPH radical scavenging activity, reducing ability in Ferric reducing antioxidant power assay, ability to prevent lipid peroxidation in Hydrogen peroxide scavenging activity, ability to stimulate the phagocytic activity in leucocytes in Nitroblue tetrazolium test. The literature survey revealed that these studies were not reported earlier. So, the present study was aimed to reveal the antioxidant and immunomodulatory activity of the plant extract. The study reports concluded that the extract possess immunomodulatory activity.
