Abstract:
The objective of present study is to investigate the anti-inflammatory effect of Tylophora indica on Carrageenin induced hind paw oedema and cotton pellet granuloma in Albino rats. Hind paw oedema was produced by sub plantar injection of Carrageenin and paw volume was measured by plethysmometrically at 0 and 3 h intervals after injection. Cotton pellet granuloma was produced by implantation of 50±1 mg, sterile cotton in each axilla under ether anaesthesia. The animals were treated with Tylophora indica and Indomethacin. Tylophora indica produced significant anti-inflammatory effect in both acute and sub-acute models of inflammation was more effective when compared to Indomethacin. Thus Tylophora indica possess anti-inflammatory effects in both acute and sub-acute inflammation.
