Pavetta indica L. is a shrub that belongs to the Rubiaceae family. This plant species has been using to treat diabetes, inflammations, liver and urinary tract disorders, and worm infestation in traditional medicines. As there is no comprehensive review available for reported bioactivities of P. indica, this article aims to analyze, summarize, and document the reported bioactivities of P. indica. The electronic databases (Web of Science, Scopus, Semantic Scholar, PubMed, and ScienceDirect) to identify related published works from 1900 to January 2021. Clinical, in vitro, and in vivo levels of scientific evidence are available for reported bioactivities. Various parts of P. indica have exhibited anti-inflammatory, anticancer, antidiabetic, Anti-Enterobius vermicularis infection, and hepatoprotective activities. Anyhow, so far, none of the bioactive compounds have been identified in this plant species. This work will be advantageous for researchers who are interested to study further bioactivity and phytochemical studies of this plant species.
