  • Abstract

    Current treatment of different types of arthritis such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, septic arthritis, juvenile idiopathic arthritis, and ankylosing spondylitis involves the administration of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, disease-modifying antirheumatoid drugs, corticosteroids, and biological agents mainly by the oral, parenteral, or topical route. However, the frequent dosing and their side effects required often leads the patients to switch over to herbal medicines. Traditionally used herbal medicines, due to their anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory properties, have potential to be a therapy of choice for arthritis patients and are now extensively being studied. However, only very few dosage forms of the effective plant sources are available in the market. The major category of formulations available in market is the oils. Hence, the research can be focused on various effective formulations with oral and external dosage forms. This review focused on the plant sources popularly used for the treatment of arthritis but still not available as an effective formulation. This review gives us an idea to direct the research toward the various formulations which will enhance the technologies. Furthermore, formulating the herbal actives into novel technologies such as liposomes, phytosomes, and transdermal drug delivery would be a potential area.
