Abstract

The present study was aimed at evaluation of the anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and anti-pyretic activities of aqueous extract of fruits of Tamarindus indica Linn.in rats. Paw edema and cotton wool granuloma models were used to investigate ant-inflammatory activity in acute inflammation and chronic inflammation respectively. Hot-plate and tail flick models were employed to evaluate the analgesic activity. Yeast induced pyrexia model was used to study antipyretic activity of Tamarindus indica. Aqueous extract of Tamarindus indica was found to have good anti-inflammatory activity in acute inflammation model. Antipyretic activity was observed only with higher doses and there was no analgesic activity observed in the experimental models used.
