5 Abstract The aqueous, methanolic & acetone extract of the Triticum aestivum (wheat grass) was investigated for its anti-inflammatory activities in animal models. The extract 1.43 gm/kg body weight reduced significantly, the formation of oedema induced by carrageenan. (1) These results were also comparable to those of Diclofenac, the reference drug used in this study. Anti-inflammatory activity determined by carrageenan induced paw edema using plethysmometer in albino wistar rats were carried out, following the sub cutaneous administration of aqueous, methanolic and acetone extract of triticum aestivum. (1.43 gm/kg body weight). The anti-inflammatory activity of methanolic extract of triticum aestivum was significant. The maximum anti-inflammatory activity was observed at 5 hr and was comparable to that of standard Diclofenac sodium and the percentage of edema inhibition effect was 73.38%. Acetone and water extract of Triticum aestivum has also shown significant anti-inflammatory activity but less than the methanolic extract and standard drug. The activity was attributed to the presence of phytoconstituents in the tested extract.


6 Summary Acetone and water extract of Triticum aestivum has also shown significant anti-inflammatory activity but less than the methanolic extract and standard drug. The activity was attributed to the presence of phytoconstituents in the tested extract.
