Abstract
    Holarrhena floribunda (G. Don) T. Durand and Schinz (Apocynaceae), commonly called false rubber tree, is a tree that grows up to 17 meters high. The plant is widely distributed in West Africa, where several parts of the plant are used for medicinal purposes. The stem-bark and leaves are used to treat various ailments such as malaria, fever, dysentery, amoebic diseases, diarrhea, infertility, amenorrhea and diabetes. The review of literature revealed the presence of many active phytochemical constituents which may be responsible for the various medicinal uses and pharmacological activities of Holarrhena floribunda. According to this review Holarrhena floribunda has analgesic, antimicrobial, hypoglycemic, anticancer, antimalarial and Trypanocidal activities.
