Terminalia chebula, a plant rich with phytochemicals, was selected in the present investigation for evaluating its immunomodulatory activities. Extract of the leaves were prepared in various solvents. Ethanolic extract was found to contain significant amount of phytochemicals. Hence, it was selected to study immunomodualtory activity. Silica gel column chromatography of ethanolic extract was performed. The fractions were further subjected to TLC and most active fractions were administrated to balb/C mice for evaluating immunomodulatory studies. Out of the five fraction (S1 – S5), S3 was found to possess immunostimulant activity. Provision of Ethanol Extracts of Terminalia chebula on balb/C mice can increase the antibody titers IgM and IgG.
