At 50 µg/ml, 128 extracts were active with 32 showed inhibition of XO more than 50%. At 10 µg/ml, 57 extracts were active with 5 possessing more than 50% inhibition. In total, 66 extracts showed IC50 values below 100 µg/ml. The crude extracts possessing XO inhibitory activity with IC50 values less than 10 µg/ml were extracts of Smilax corbularia Kunth (IC50 8.57 µg/ml), Dichroa febrifuga Lour. (IC50 8.58 µg/ml) and Miliusa balansae Fin.Gagnep. (IC50 9.40 µg/ml).
