SCREENING OF ANTI-INFLAMMATORY POTENTIAL OF CISSAMPELOS PAREIRA LINN LEAVES EXTRACT IN ALBINO RATSAbstract
Anti-inflammatory activity of the ethanolic extract of the Cissampelos pariera Linn leaves was studied in albino wistar rats using the carrageenan induced rat paw edema model. The ethanolic extract of Cissampelos pariera (400 mg/kg p.o.) inhibited carrageenan induced rat paw edema. The extract was also studied for its preliminary phytochemical screening and acute toxicity studies. The result indicated that the extract produced significant (P < 0.05) anti-inflammatory activity when compared with the standard drug indomethacin (10 mg/kg p. o.) and untreated control.
