Abstract: Citrullus colocynthis & Citrullus lanatus has been widely used in the preparations of folk medicine since ages. Citrullus colocynthis & Citrullus lanatus has the traditional use in remedy for various diseases like Adrenocarcenoma, endothelioma, leukemia, tumors of the liver, spleen etc. A decoction of the whole plant is made with juices used to help indurations of the kidney & liver.

The leaves are diuretic and used in the treatment of jaundice and asthma.(Cowan et al.,1999;Criagg et al.,2001). This plant is available in wild in the sandy lands of North West Punjab, Rajasthan, and southern coastal areas of India. Citrullus colocynthis & Citrullus lanatus commonly known as the colocynth, bitter apple, bitter cucumber and kaurtumba. It is a desert plant native to the Mediterranean basin and Asia. It resembles a common watermelon vine, bears, small, hard fruit with a bitter pulp. Lipoxygenase inhibitors may lead to the design of biologically and pharmacologically targeted inhibiting therapeutic strategies. Evaluation of Citrullus species extracts as a lipoxygenase inhibitor may be useful in cancer treatment. (Pontiki et al., 2008; Scheider et al., 2005). Evaluation of the fruit extract as a Inhibitor of hyaluronidase activity can be useful in the treatment of allergic reaction, reptiles (snake) bite poisoning, dengue and edema .(Martin et al.,2007; Maedea et al., 1990)
