Greuter extract in in vitro from waste ground region of Gorgan, Iran, which has been used in traditional as a strong anti-inflammation, antirheumatism, antitumor, antipathogene, and antiinfection.

Materials and Methods: Ethnopharmacological data were obtained among well-known indigenous herbal practitioner (70 ages) in Gorgan, Iran. Aerial parts of plant in blooming were collected from Gorgan waste ground (80 m) in October 2013. Methanol and acetone extracts were obtained by maceration, antioxidant activity were evaluated spectrophotometrically by 1,1-diphenyl-2-picryl hydrazyl (DPPH), total antioxidant capacity and reducing power to compare of butylated hydroxytoluene and butylated hydroxyanisole antioxidant standard and antibacterial activity were determined by disc diffusion and minimal inhibitory concentrations (MICs) method against tree Gram-positive and negative pathogenic bacteria.
