Background: The present work assesses the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effect of Lasia spinosa rhizome extracts on in-vitro and in-vivo models compiled through molecular docking study of plant-steemed phytocompounds with specific targets. Materials and Methods: In this study, Lasia spinosa rhizome was subjected to extraction using petroleum ether, ethyl acetate and methanol and the extracts were analyzed by GC-MS. Antioxidant was assessed using in-vitro methods such as DPPH scavenging activity and H2O2 scavenging activity; anti-inflammatory activity was assessed using both in-vitro and in-vivo and molecular docking utilizing Auto dock 4.0 was done. Results: Tests showed that methanolic extract (MELS) has the most important dose-dependent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory efficacy at various levels. Of all compounds, Morin reported the most successful docking ranking of -8.2 to -9.8, maintaining a good binding fondness between protein and ligand. Conclusion: Antioxidant and anti-inflammatory of Lasia spinosa may be inferred from the examinations. The in-vitro, in-vivo and in silico assays of L. spinosa. Morin is confirmed by the information as a beneficial antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent that can aid future clinical assessments.

Key words: Lasia spinosa, Antioxidant, Anti-inflammatory, In silico, Auto dock.
