Abstract

The present study was under taken to compare the analgesic, anti-inflammatory and antipyretic activity of alcoholic extracts of leaves (AELLC), stem (AESLC) and roots (AERLC) of Lantana camara. Analgesic activity was evaluated with formalin induced paw licking test in mice, anti-inflammatory activity was evaluated with carrageenan induced rat paw edema model in wistar rats and antipyretic activity was evaluated with yeast induced pyrexia in rats. In preliminary phytochemical investigations the Lantana camara was found to contain alkaloids, carbohydrates, glycosides, saponins, proteins, flavonoids, tannins and phenolic compounds and the pharmacological studies have revealed that the leaves of lantana camara possess.
