From: Potentials of leaves of Aspilia africana (Compositae) in wound care: an experimental evaluation

Extract/fraction Concentration (μg/ml) Bleeding/clotting time (s) Coagulation time (s)
ME 10 NT 102.67 ± 31.08
  100 31.33 ± 0.67a, b 55.67 ± 8.95
HF 10 NT 115.00 ± 26.50
  100 42.00 ± 2.31a, b 64.00 ± 25.53
MF 10 NT 98.33 ± 36.84
  100 30.33 ± 3.84a, b 42.67 ± 2.40a
Normal saline   54.00 ± 2.18 48.67 ± 5.20
Control   52.00 ± 0.58 89.33 ± 9.39
  1. a, b P < 0.05 compared to Control and normal saline respectively (ANOVA; LSD post hoc); Values of bleeding and coagulation time shown are Mean ± SEM (n = 3); ME = Methanol extract; HF = n-Hexane fraction; MF = Methanol fraction; NT = Not tested.
