    The extracts of dried powdered of leaves of Murraya koenigii (L.) Spreng were investigated for anti-pyretic activity in rats using yeast induce pyrexia model. The leaves of Murraya koenigii were collected from region of north Gujarat and shade dried. The dried powdered leaves of Murraya koenigii (500 gm) were extracted with ethanol (90%) and water by hot extraction and dried in desiccators. The dried ethanolic and water extracts were subjected to phytochemical analysis. Rats weighing 150-200 gm were taken for experiment. Both the ethanol and water extracts were evaluated for anti-pyretic activity at dose 300 mg/kg of body weight. Administration of ethanolic extract of Murraya koenigii (L.) Spreng at the single dose of 300 mg/kg produce significant antipyretic activity (p<0.01) in albino rats with respect to the paracetamol as a standard drug. The present study shows that the ethanolic extract of Murraya koenigii has significant anti-pyretic property.
