PHARMACOGNOSTIC, PHYTOCHEMICAL AND ANTI-INFLAMMATORY ACTIVITY OF MARTYNIYA ANNUA LEAVES LINN. (FAMILY: MARTYNIACEAE)Abstract
The present research was conducted to investigate the anti-inflammatory activity of methanolic extracts of plants of Martynia annua. (Family: Martyniaceae) The anti-inflammatory activity of the methanolic extracts of the Martynia annua at the dose of 50, 100, 200 mg/kg body weight was evaluated against the standard drug – pentazocine at a dose of 25 mg/kg body weight. Adult Swiss albino mice of either sex of six numbers in each group, was undertaken for study and evaluated by carrageenan induced paw edema method. The methanolic extracts of plants of Martynia annua showed greater anti-inflammatory activity when compare with the standard drug. Results of present studies suggest that methanolic extract of Martynia annua significant (P value < 0.01) anti-inflammatory activity.
