ABSTRACT

In Algeria, the study of traditional medicine and treatment by plants is of particular interest. This country is known by, the diversity of its climate, the nature of its soil and the wealth of its medicinal flora. To value this floral heritage with medicinal and economic interest, our choice concerned to an underestimated plant in traditional medicine, it is about the magic carpet (Delosperma Resei). This plant belongs to the family Aizoaceae. The genus Delosperma includes about 150 species of shrub and perennial succulent, a persistent or semi persistent foliage, growing in hilly plains. The current work reveals through the phytochemical screening and the study of some pharmacological properties, anti-inflammatory and antiulcer activity, the therapeutic virtues of a spontaneous succulent Delosperma Reseii. The reactions of characterization were used to identify the chemical constituents of Delosperma Reseii leaves. The results of our study revealed the wealth of our plant in tannins and saponosides. Leuco-anthocyans and flavonoids exist in average levels. However, the extract of saponins showed an anti-inflammatory effect clearly lower than that generated by Diclofenac (the percentage of reduction is about 36.59%). The anti-inflammatory activity of the saponins extract appeared less effective than that of Diclofenac. The study of the anti-ulcer activity showed that the extract of tannins at 10% in the experimental group induced a decrease in the index of ulceration up to 0%. However, in the control group treated with Omeprazole, this index falls to 0%. The tannins in the methanolic extract of the plant have shown an important anti-ulcer effect, but lower compared to Omeprazole.
