Abstract: Bromelain is a crude extract from the fruit or stem of pineapple [Ananas comosus(Linn.) Merr] plant. It consists of different closely related proteinases which are good anti-inflammatory, antithrombotic and fibrinolytic agents. The active fractions have been characterized biochemically and found to be effective after oral administration. It has earned universal acceptability as a phytotherapeutical drug because of its history of safe use and zero side effects. This communication deals with the biochemistry and applications of bromelain in therapeutic purposes.
