This study was intended to evaluate the anti-inflammatory activity on successive solvent extracts like petroleum ether; chloroform, ethyl acetate and ethanol of leaves of plant Barleria gibsoni Dalz experimentally in vitro. Phytochemical screening of extracts showed presence of flavonoids, glycosides, tannins, steroids & proteins. The successive solvent extract of Barleria gibsoni Dalz with a dose of 100, 200 and 500 μg/ml was taken for the activity and compared with the standard diclofenac, protein denaturation model and same dose of extract was taken for activity & compared with aspirin 200 μg/ml using heat induced hemolytic method. The extracts of petroleum ether; chloroform and ethanol of leaves of Barleria gibsoni Dalz showed significant result in both anti-inflammatory models.
