Extracts of Embelia tsjeriam-cottam Fruits were investigated for anti-inflammatory activity with acute and chronic models. In the doses of 200 mg kg-1exhibited significant (P < 0.001) anti-inflammatory activity in all the models tested. The alcohol extract of Embelia tsjeriam-cottam at 200 mg kg-1 showed maximum inhibition of paw volume 1.21 ± 0.1 in carrageenan-induced rat paw edema while the standard drug Diclofenac it was 1.18 ± 0.1 after 6 hrs of carrageenan injection. In the chronic inflammatory model alcoholic extract inhibited the granuloma weight by 35.50 %, whereas the Diclofenac inhibited 46.18%.
