The present study was conducted to evaluate the anti-inflammatory effect of hydroalcoholic extract of leaves from Plectranthus amboinicus (HAEPA) against the denaturation of protein in vitro. The plant extracts were incubated with egg albumin at different concentrations to study the anti-inflammatory nature of the extract. Acetaminophen was used as reference standard drug. Present study narrated the Concentration dependent inhibition of protein denaturation by the HAEPA. The current study can thus be summarized as the HAEPA possess significant anti-inflammatory effect against invitro protein denaturation. The effect may be due to Polyphenolic content and may be synergistic activity rather than a single compound.

Keywords: Anti –inflammatory, Plectranthus amboinicus, Protein Denaturation.
