      The roots of theHemidesmus indicus were studied on the lines adopted forDecalepis Hamiltonii and were found to have a similar composition particularly with regard to the petrol extract. Since theDecalepis roots contain much higher percentages of the various chemical components they are more suitable for use as drug.
