Carrageenan and formaldehyde are administered to induce acute and chronic inflammation. Animals are divided into 6 groups with 6 animals each including Normal group, inflammatory control group, Diclofenac treated group and Hibiscus rosa treated group at different doses of 250 mg/kg, 500 mg/kg and 1000 mg/kg.

    Results: Different concentrations of Hibiscus rosa treated groups i.e. 250 mg/kg (p<0.05), 500 mg/kg (p<0.05) and 1000 mg/kg (p<0.01) showed significant reduction in Paw edema as compared to controls. Significant reduction in Body weight was also observed in Hibiscus rosa treated groups. Hematological profiles of Hibiscus rosa treated group are satisfying and significant.
