The thesis which includes 4 different experimental processes, was performed to evaluate and determine the biological potential of Thladiantha cordifolia which is a medicinal plant which is from cucurbitaceae family. All the different experiments were done to evaluate its antioxidant, cytotoxicity, thrombolytic and antimicrobial property. Antioxidant property tests included 2,2 diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) test, total flavonoid content (TFC) test and total phenolic content (TPC) test, which showed acceptable results. The plant reflected very mild thrombolytic property and remarkable level of cytotoxic property. However, antimicrobial property was completely absent in the plant extract. From this research it is evident that the plant Thladiantha cordifolia is able to provide moderate effect in the development of medicinal world.
