Abstract

Some artocarpus species are used as traditional medicines. Based on previous studies, there is a close connection between traditional and modern sources for ethnopharmacological uses of Artocarpus species, especially for treatment against inflammation, malarial fever, diarrhoea, diabetes and tapeworm infection. For example, in Sarawak, Artocarpus odoratissimus is used by local communities to treat diarrhoea and as an antidote againts centipede and scorpion stings. It is also used to treat scabies. Previous chemical studies done on Artocarpus species have also revealed that Artocarpus species are rich in phenolic compounds, including flavonoids, stilbenoids, arylbenzofurons and Jacalin, a lectin. Despite all these, chemical profile of the indigenous plants from Sarawak, such as Artocarpus odoratissimus has not been studied intensively and the analyses of medicinal properties have not been explored. It is pertinent therefore, to develop a chemical profile of one such Sarawakian species, Artocarpus odoratissimus, a species not reported before. This research aims to isolate all the bioactive compounds in Artocarpus odoratissimus and to determine their biological activities.
