A good number of herbal remedies have stood the test of time, particularly for the treatment of allergic, metabolic and degenerative diseases associated with aging. Traditional medicinal plants in various countries, especially in India have been used for various aliments such as inflammation and for immunopotentiation. In the present study, two plants such as Clerociendrum serratum, Mollugo cerviana were screened for analgesic and anti inflammatory property using tail flicking and paw oedema assay. The findings revealed that better activity was noticed in C.serratum at 50 1.,ig concentration. More phytochemical compounds were also detected in Cserratum Even though microgram of the plant extract was used in the present study; further isolation, purification and characterisation of the drug using chromatographic techniques may help us to formulate nanograms of bioactive principle for prophylaxis.
