The anti-arthritic property of petroleum ether and fresh aqueous extracts of leaves of Vitex negundo Linn. of family Verbenaceae was studied for anti-arthritic activity against Formalin induced arthritis in Wister albino rats of either sex. Both the extracts (200 mg / Kg each) were found to significantly inhibit the paw edema induced arthritis by Formalin induced in rats. The results indicate that aqueous extract of Vitex negundo Linn. leaves had significant anti-arthritic property when compared with the standard and untreated control.
