Rubia cordifolio, Linn.-Indian Manjishtha was studied for the anti-inflammatory effect in rats with carrageenan paw oedema. The plant showed significant anti-inflammatory activity at a dose of 10 and 20 ml/kg of the water extracts. The activity was comparable to that of phenylbutazone (100 mg/kg). No such activity was observed with Rubia tinctorum - the Iranian variety of Manjishtha.
