Author(s): K.G Lalitha, M.G Sethuraman, B Rajkapoor

The effect of ethyl acetate extract of Sarcostemma brevistigma was investigated in rat to evaluate the antiinflammatory activity. Carrageenin-induced rat paw edema model and cotton pellet granuloma methods were employed to test antiinflammatory activity. The ethyl acetate extract (650 mg/ kg) produced the inhibition of carrageenin-induced rat paw edema and also found to be effective in cotton pellet granuloma studies. The result indicated that the ethyl acetate extract produced significant (P<0.001) antiinflammatory activity when compared to control.
