Author(s): G Kirshnamoorthy, S Kavimani, C Loganathan

Oil of Cymbopogon martinii leaves obtained by distillation was given orally to study its effects on the exudative phase of the inflammatory reactions, using the technique of carrageenan-induced paw oedema. Oil of Cymbopogon martinii showed dose-dependent anti-inflammatory activity comparable to that of diclofenac sodium.
