To identify the effectiveness of Adhatoda vasica, Garcinia mangostana and Sesbania sesban on antiinflammatory activity by following histamine-induced paw edema, carrageen an induced paw edema in mice, yeast induced pyrexia, inhibition of albumin denaturation and finally toxicity analysis to know their safety with the objective to use these natural agents with no side effects for anti-inflammatory activity instead of chemicals which has got more side effects and costlier. All the results have clearly indicated that the selected three plants have got a good anti-inflammatory activity in a dose dependent manner and as there is no toxicity the extracts could effectively be used as alternative medicines in the place of general allopathic anti-inflammatory drugs.
