Abstract: The ethanolic extract of Barringtonia racemosa Roxb. (Lecythidaceae) fruits were screened for its anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects in experimental animals. The extract showed significant inhibition of carrageenan/formalin induced paw oedema at the three doses used in the study. The activity of the extract was comparable to that of Indomethacin, the standard anti-inflammatory drug. B. racemosa ethanolic extract also showed significant inhibition of acetic acid induced writhing in mice at 125, 250 and 500 mg/kg doses almost comparable to the standard analgesic drug, acetyl salicylic acid.
