Abstract

In this study the methanolic extract of the plant Gmelina arborea stem bark was evaluated for its anti inflammatory and anti tumour property. The anti inflammatory study was done in dextran and formalin induced inflammatory models, whereas the anti tumour activity was screened in solid and ascites tumour model in mice. The results clearly suggest that methanolic extract of Gmelina arborea possess significant anti inflammatory and anti cancer activity. The extract also showed in vitro cytotoxic effect on DLA and EAC cell lines. Further studies are required to confirm the exact mechanism underlining anti inflammatory and anti cancer property of the extract and to identify the chemical constituents responsible for it.
