ABSTRACT
This study was aimed to evaluate the anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antipyretic activity of methanolic extract of Cinnamomum tamala leaves. Materials and Methods:  Anti-inflammatory activity was studied in Swiss albino mice using carageenan.  Analgesic activity was evaluated in mice by using hot plate method, acetic acid-induced writhing movement and tail flick test.  Antipyretic activity was evaluated by using brewer’s yeast. Result: The study showed that C. tamala extract was having anti-inflammatory activity at the different test doses.  The analgesic activity was also found to be significant (p
