Modern treatment investigation for kidney stones are wrought with side effect, hence the need for alternative therapies such as plant based medicines. We have to documented through in vitro biological evaluation of plant Lantana camara (Zygophyllaceae family) possesses urolithiatic. To prepare experimental kidney stones(calcium oxalate stones) by homogenious precipitation then preparation of semi-permeable membrane from farm egg, then to estimation of calcium oxalate by titrimetry.
Keywords: Lantana camara, Collection, Extraction, Phytochemical screening, Evaluation of anti – Urolithiatic activity.
