Alopecia, dryness of mouth, colic (therapeutic uses based on classical texts from the seventh century to the sixteenth century). The petroleum ether extract of the root at 1–5 days post-coitum prevented nidation in up to 100% of albino rats. 95% ethanol extract of root (orally) at 10.0 mg/kg showed an anti-estrogenic effect. Abruquinones A, B, and D exhibit platelet  aggregation and A, B, D, and F show strong anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic effects. 70% ethanol extract of fresh root (intraperitonealy) showed anticonvulsant and CNS depressant activity at variable doses in mice. The root was used as a snuff in masosinusitis (Vrindamadhava, sixth century). The root was chewed for pain due to dental caries (Rājamarttanda, eleventh century). Massage and snuff of the root and seed extract in oil was prescribed for treating chronic cervical lymphadenitis (Bhāvaprakasha, sixteenth century). Hot water extract of the root is taken orally as an emmenagogue. In Taiwan, a decoction of the dried root is given internally to treat bronchitis and hepatitis. A decoction of the root and leaf sap is taken orally for asthma in Tanzania. Leprosy/obstinate skin diseases; ulcer; diseases of the nervous system; baldness (therapeutic uses based on texts from the fifteenth to sixteenth century). In leprosy, a paste of the seeds with butter was applied topically; in sciatica, stiffness of shoulder, and paralysis, the affected region is incised with a razor and a paste of the seeds was applied thereon; in baldness, the scalp was incised and a paste of the seeds was applied frequently; for treating scrofula, oil extract of seeds and root; for dandruff, oil extract of seeds and Eclipta alba was prescribed. Abrin has been studied for its cytotoxic effect on tumor cells, as well as for sterility, treat- ing prostate and breast cancer  and as a “molecular probe” to investigate cell function. Experimentally, seed extracts showed anti-fertility activity in rats; adversely influenced pregnancy and the fetus in mice; and caused irreversible impairment in human sperm motility. [Ayurvedic Pharmacopoeial Plant Drugs: Expanded Therapeutics]

A decoction of the leaves has been prescribed for scurvy, cough, bronchitis, sprue and hepatitis and as a refrigerant. They are also applied on painful swellings, eye inflammation, cancer, syphilis and on leucodermic spots. The leaves are also effective in the treatment of coryza, cough, fever, and jaundice resulting from viral hepatitis and intoxications. The seeds have been used to treat fever, malaria, headache, dropsy and to expel worms. A decoction of the seeds is applied for abdominal complaints, conjunctivitis, irachoma and malarial fever. Central Africans use powdered seed as an oral contraceptive/ It is also used to lower high blood pressure and relieve severe headache. The seeds are very toxic and can be applied externally to treat bacterial infection and accelerate the bursting of boils and to cure mastitis and galactophoritis.

The aqueous extract of the seed is used for the treatment of cancer of the epithelioma and as a vermifuge and an abortifacient. A single dose of the powdered seeds acts as a long-acting contraceptive, with the effect lasting up to  menstrual cycles. The seed infusion has been employed to hasten labor and for treatment of conjunctivitis granulosa and trachoma. The entire plant is drunk for treatment of venereal disease, headaches, and snakebites. A poultice prepared from the seeds of Abrus, salt, and the unripe fruits of Musa paradisica is applied topically to boils and abscesses. [Handbook of African Medicinal Plants, Second Edition]

Ingested seeds generally remain intact as they pass through the gastrointestinal tract without releasing any toxin and causing any toxicity. However, if the seeds are chewed, pulverized, or digested (i.e., if passage through the gastrointestinal tract is delayed), then the toxin is absorbed by intestinal cells, causing mild to severe gastrointestinal toxicity. Symptoms depend upon the amount of toxin exposure and include nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramping, diarrhea, and dehydration. Variations in the severity of toxicity may be related to the degree to which the seeds are ground or chewed before ingestion. Parenteral administration (such as by injection or inhalation), or perhaps large ingestion, may produce life-threatening systemic findings, including multisystem organ failure, even with small exposures. [Handbook of Poisonous and Injurious Plants, 2nd Ed]
