dc.description.abstract Aporosa lindleyana is a green leafy vegetable of family Euphorbiaceae grown in tropical countries. In this study the effect of Aporosa lindleyana on the serum cholesterol level of hypercholesterolaemic rats and normocholesterolaemic Wistar rats fed on a cholesterol enriched diet was investigated. The results indicate that feeding of plant extract for two weeks reduces the total cholesterol in hypercholesterolaemic Wistar rats by 25.2% and normocholesterolaemic rats fed with cholesterol enriched diet by 37.7%. In addition the test group had significantly lower (p<0.05) total/HDL than the controls indicating that Aporosa lindleyana extract possesses hypochlosterolaemic activity. en_US
