Author(s): Kalpana S Patil, S.C Chaturvedi, S Bhujbal

Crude ethanol extract of Celosia argentea leaves was successively fractionated with petroleum ether, solvent ether, ethyl acetate, butanol and butanone. The ethanolic extract and various fractions were investigated for antiinflammatory activity in rats at a dose of 100 mg/kg i.p. The ethanolic extract exhibited antiinflammatory activity when compared to control and was comparable to that of standard drug aspirin.
