Antitumor and antimicrobial activities of water soluble fractions of Duchesnea indica (Andr.) and Focke (Rosaceae), have been studied. The contents of total polysaccharide were 22% and its composition was identified by G.C.: L-arabinose(Rt: 7.71), D-xylose (Rt. 9.91), D-glucuronic acid (Rt. 12.77), D-fructose (Rt. 13.63), D-galactose (Rt. 14.68), D-glucose (Rt. 15.42). The antimicrobial activity of Duchesnea indica against four bacterial species, S. aureus, S. paratyphi, S. dysenteriae and Ps. aeruginosa was observed.
