Methanolic extract of plant leaves was used to perform analgesic and anti inflammatory activity.

In both the model of analgesic activity methanolic extract of Caryota urens at doses of 200 mg/kg and 400 mg/ kg significantly increase reaction time in rats when compared with control. The dose 400 mg/kg of Caryota urens was highly significant which is comparable with standard in both the studies.Phytochemical investigation of Caryota urens extracts shows presence of phytosterols, tepenoids, flavonoids , tannins and Phenolic compounds which has been responsible for analgesic and anti inflammatory activity.
