  • Abstract

    The aim of the present study was to evaluate the anti-inflammatory activity of methanolic extracts of leaves and roots of Chlorophytum borivilianum in rats. The anti-inflammatory activity was evaluated by using Digital plethysmometer. The study was carried out using dose of 200 mg/kg orally. Both the methanolic extracts (leaves and roots) produced statistically significant and dose dependent inhibition of edema induced by carrageenan at all doses when compared to the control groups. The percentage inhibition was also noted for both the methanolic extract. Both the extracts did't exhibit toxicity in mice when injected intraperitoneally up to the concentration of 2 g/kg.
