Author(s): M.B Patil, S.S Jalalpure, H.J Pramod, F.V Manvi

Ethanolic crude extract of Anacardium occidentale leaves and its five different crude fractions, petroleum ether, solvent ether, ethyl acetate, butanol and butanone were subjected to preliminary qualitative chemical investigations. The ethanolic extract and all other fractions were screened for antiinflammatory activity in albino rats (300 mg/kg). Ethanolic extract and butanone fraction exhibited significant antiinflammatory activity when compared with control and standard drug diclofenac sodium (100 mg/kg).
