Abstract

This study was conducted to determine and compare the effect of Capsicum frutescens (siling Labuyo), Capsicum anuum var. Longum (siling Haba, and Capsicum chinense (Habanero) crude fruit extract on degree of vascularization using chorioallantoic membrane asasy of a 7-day old duch embryo. An experiemntal study that involved qualitative and quantitative methods to characterize the extract of different Capsicum species. The crude extracts were subjected to chorioallantoic membrane assay to determine the degree of vascularity of the different variants of Capsicum. Four contrations were prepred; 25%, 50%, 75%, 100%. Positive and negative control groups were 5% retinoic acid and normal saline solution, respectively. Statistical analysis of the quantitative data gathered was performed using ANOVA. This study had shown that there was no significant difference on the degree of vascularity among the speciies Capsicum fruttescens, Capsicum anuum var. Lngum, and Capsicum chinense against the negative control. In addition, results also demonstrated that there were no dose-dependent effects on the degree of vascularity for each species.
