Bidens pilosa is an asteracean very useful is traditional medicine. The effects of its ethyl acetate fraction were performed on rat uterine muscle. The phytochemical study was performed by HPLC-MS technique. The estrogenic and uterotonic potency were investigated. Five adult female mice received a single dose of 2000 mg/kg for the acute toxicity test. Eighteen days old immature female Wistar rats in four groups of 6 for uterotrophic test. For 3 consecutive days, once a day, two test groups received the plant extract (625 & 1250mg/kg), the reference group received estradiol valerate (1mg/kg) (Progynova® 2mg) and the control group received DMSO1%. The extract uterotonic properties were ran on adult female pregnant rats. Control and test groups received respectively DMSO1%, 625 & 1250mg/kg /day. The chromatography profile revealed the presence of two known bioactive flavonoids, namely Iso-Okanin 7-O-?-D-(2??,4??,6??-triacetyl)-glycopyranoside and Okanin 4?-O-?-D-(4??,6??-diacetyl)-glucopyranoside. The acute toxicity test failed to kill mice g, indicating a lower toxicity level of the extract. The increased (p<0.05) of the wet uterine and ovaries weight gain, especially at dose 1250mg/kg were noted; Uterine horn?s morphology and tissue architecture were also remodelled (vs. estradiol 1mg/kg) and the ovarian cholesterol level decreased (p<0.001) in a dose dependant manner. Bidens pilosa induced dams? body weight gain decrease (p<0.001) and a shortening of the pregnancy duration; The term of pregnancy nor the number of offspring?s per litter, their body weight and survival index stayed unchanged. Bidens pilosa leave?s ethyl acetate fraction presented a lower toxicity activity and a high estrogenic and uterotonic potency, superior to the aqueous extract effect firstly observed.
