The crude methanolic extract of the aerial parts of Sesbania grandiflora was investigated for its possible anti-inflammatory activity using acetic acid induced writhing model in mice. The extract significantly (p<0.001) reduced the number of acetic acid induced abdominal constriction (writhing) in mice at 250 and 500mg/kg of body weight, which was comparable to the standard drug, Diclofenac sodium.
