The present work has been designed to evaluate the potency of anti-inflammatory activity of different fractions of ethanolic extract of Achyranthes aspera leaves. Carrageenan induced rat paw oedema method was used for screening. Ethanolic, ethyl acetate and hexane fraction was screened among which ethyl acetate fraction was found to be most potent one with percentage inhibition of 50, 74, 84, 86% at 1st to 4th hour respectively. By this experiment it seems that leaves of Achyranthes aspera can be used for the treatment of acute inflammation.
