Abstract

The aim of the study was preparation of extract of medicinal plant Hertia intermedia and determination for the presence of anti-inflammatory activity in it. The experimental plant was identified, collected and was dried under the shade. After drying the plant was subjected to grinding in order to obtain powdered form. The powder obtained was soaked for the period of 10-15 days in methanol (CH3OH). The extract was obtained which was filtered and the remaining solvent in it was removed by the help of rotary evaporator. Different fractions of solvent using aqueous dichloromethane, benzene, butanol, chloroform, ethyl acetate and n-hexane were prepared using methanol extract of Hertia Intermedia. Methanol extract, aqueous extract, butanol extract and extract of Hertia intermedia showed no bioactivity against inflammatory cell line. Hertia intermedia did not show any noticeable activity. Hertia intermedia have no bioactivity against inflammatory cell line.
