dc.description.abstract Leaves of Argyreia populifoLia Choisy (Convolvulaceae) is used in traditional medicine for inflammation in joints and Arthropod bites. However, the pharmacological confirmation for anti-inflammatory activity of the leaves are lacking. The aim of this study was to evaluate the anti-inflammatory action of the leaves using carrageenan-induced paw oedema test in rats. 10 mllkg oral dose of fresh juice of the leaves significantly impaired the initial phase of the acute inflammatory response (by 33%) in this model. The juice showed a marked anti-histamine activity when assessed using histamine-induced vascular permeability test. It was concluded that the leaf juice has anti-inflammatory activity mediated via antihistamine action justifying its use in traditional medicine. en_US
