Chronic inflammation is the underlying factor in causing multitude of human ailments ranging from arthritis to cancer. Amidst the emerging synthetic drugs, people started re-evaluating traditional plant based medicines because of the efficacy and safety of herbal medicine. Hence in the present study, efforts are made to validate the anti-inflammatory potential of four medicinal plants using in-vitro procedures. Ten different concentrations of aqueous extracts of selected medicinal plants ranging from 0.01–10mg/ml were taken. At a concentration of 10 mg/ml Erythrina indica has shown 74.15% of protein denaturation inhibition followed by Mukia maderaspatana (53%). Cardiospermum halicacabum has shown only 42.40% activity, whereas Delonix elata has shown only 14% activity. In the case of proteinase inhibition assay, Mukia maderaspatana at a concentration of 10 mg/ml has exhibited 74% inhibition of proteinase followed by Cardiospermum halicacabum 58%, Erythrina indica 38% and Delonix elata 30%. Among the four plants selected, except Delonix elata all the other three plants have revealed remarkable anti-inflammatory activity.
