Methanolic extract of Millingtonea hortensis stem bark was studied for anti-inflammatory and analgesic activities in animal models. The anti-inflammatory activity was studied by using acute model viz. Carrageenan induced rat?s paw edema using two doses (200 and 400 mg/kg) of methanolic extract of Millingtonea hortensis and Indomethacin (10 mg/kg) as standard drug and paw volume and % inhibition was measured plethysmometrically at different time intervals; In this methanolic extract of Millingtonea hortensis showed significant reduction in paw volume and increase in % inhibition in paw volume in dose dependent manner. The analgesic activity was studied using tail-flick method using 100 and 200 mg/kg doses of methanolic extract of Millingtonea hortensis and Diclofenac sodium (1.0 mg/Kg Body weight intraperitoneally) as standard drug. The extract significantly increased the reaction time in tailflick response test. Results conclude that methanolic extract of stem bark of Millingtonea hortensis possess significant anti-inflammatory and analgesic activity.
