Objective: To study the anti arthritic effect of ethanolic extract of the plant rubia cordifolia. Methods: Arthritis is induced in albino rats by injecting Freund's Complete Adjuvant and Bovine type II Collagen. Effectiveness of the plant extract is evaluated by comparing with that of a standard non-steroidal anti inflammatory drug Aspirin. Treatment is assessed by using various blood parameters and also by taking the change in paw volume. Results: Ethanolic extract of rubia cordifolia showed significant anti arthritic activity which was statistically similar to aspirin. The results suggest that the ethanolic extract of rubia cordifolia exhibits significant anti-arthritic potential.
