A chloroform extract of the dried root of Hoslundia opposita was studied for its analgesic, antipyretic and antiinflammatory activities. A significant protection against the acetic acid-induced writhing response in mice, and a marked lowering of the body temperature of hyperthermic mice was observed. A significant inhibition of the carrageenan-induced rat hind paw oedema was also produced. Our preliminary screening thus confirms the folklore use of Hoslundia opposita in various ailments.
