In the present study the anti-inflammatory activity of ethanolic extract of the roots of the plant Caesalpinia sappan. (Family: Caesalpiniaceae) was carried out. The preliminary phytochemical investigation revealed the presence of carbohydrates, proteins, triterpenoids, flavonoids, steroids and tannins. The ethanolic extract was subjected to anti-inflammatory study by Carrageenan induced paw edema model and Cotton pellet granuloma method in rats. The results of anti-inflammatory activities of ethanolic extract of the roots of the plant Caesalpinia sappan were compared with control and found to be statistically significant (P<0.01) at dose levels of 100mg/kg, 200mg/kg and 400mg/kg.
