In-vivo Assessment of Antipyretic and Anti-inflammatory Activities of Gymnosporia royleana Extract in Mice

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.324
Pages: 
129–135
Synopsis: 
This research study deals with the screening of methanolic extract of Gymnosporia royleana for antipyretic and anti-inflammatory activities using reported models of brewer’s yeast induced pyrexia model and carrageenan-induced paw edema as well as xylene- induced ear edema models of mice.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Despite the presence of multitude of synthetic drugs against fever and inflammation, none has been proven entirely safe. In contrast, the accepted safety of plant derived natural products is inspiring the world. Based on this fact as well as in view of the diversified activities reported from the genus Gymnosporia, the present study was designed to evaluate the antipyretic and anti-inflammatory activity of Gymnosporia royleana (G royleana).
