The partially ripe Euodia fruit is gathered in late summer and can be dried for later use[254]. The Wu Zhu Yu root bark is astringent and vermifuge[218]. Extracts of the Euodia plant show antiviral, antitumor and anti-inflammatory activity[218]. This species was ranked 14th in a Chinese survey of 250 potential antifertility plants[218].*
