A petroleum ether extract of Phyllanthus debelis Klein. ex Willd whole plant was subjected to analgesic and anti-inflammatory screening using various animal models. The extract exhibited significant anti-inflammatory activities in the acute carrageenan-induced rat paw edema and the chronic granuloma pouch models. However, it was devoid of analgesic activity in the tail-flick model.
