The anti inflammatory activity was studied using carrageenin induced hind paw edema in rats and analgesic activity using chemical writhing test and tail clip method in mice and tail flick method yin rats. Test drug exhibited significant dose dependent anti inflammatory and analgesic and analgesic actions and found to be not superior to that of acetyl acid.
