The aim of this study was to evaluate the anti-inflammatory potential of Trigonella foenum – graecum (TFG) seed extracts by using carrageenan induced rat paw edema in comparison to established anti-inflammatory drug diclofenac potassium (DIP, 10 mg/kg, p.o.). Successively extracted (aqueous and ethanol) extracts of TFG seeds were administered 1 h prior to inflammation induction in dose range of 50, 100 and 200mg/kg orally. The rat paw edema was induced by injecting 0.1 ml of 1 % w/v carrageenan solution, prepared with normal saline in sub-plantar region of left hind paw of the rats.Results of these study revealed that the ethanol extract at dose 200 mg/kg shows significant (p
