Objective: To evaluate the anti-inflammatory activity of Amavatavidhvansa rasa (AVVR) using Wister albino rats. Materials and Methods: Roots of P. zeylanica L. were collected from local area of Belgaum, Karnataka. A. ferox L. was collected from Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh. Mercury and sulfur (Merck Lab, Mumbai) carrageenan (Sigma, USA) were of pharmaceutical grade. Amavatavidhvansa rasa formulation was prepared as per classical formula mentioned in Bhaishyaja Kalpana.Carrageenan was used to induce inflammation in rat. Results: The anti-inflammatory activity of AVVR against carrageenan-induced paw edema shows that all the three doses have significant effect and markedly reduced the swelling of paw. Conclusion: AVVR exerts a significant protective effect against carrageenan-induced paw edema in rats.
