Star gosseberry have many active compounds which are suspected to inhibit platelet aggregation. Objective: to know the effect of star gosseberry on bleeding time of male Wistar rats as an alternative antithrombotic drugs. Methods of research: this study was experimental laboratory research with post-test only control group design.

The treatment was given for 8 days then the tail of samples were cut by 0.5 cm from the tip of the tail. Every 30 seconds the blood that dripped out was absorbed on absorbent papers until the bleeding stops. Bleeding time was measured from initial point of bleeding until the cessation of the bleeding point.
