Abstract: The aim of the present study, phytochemical and anti-inflammatory activities of different parts of hydro alcoholic extracts of Pedalium murex (L.). The maximum phytocompounds were present in hydro alcoholic extracts of leaf of P. murex when compared to stem and pod. In vitro anti-inflammatory activity was screened against human red blood cell (HRBC) membrane stabilization method. The maximum percentage of stabilization (82.10±2.93%) was observed in hydro alcoholic extract of leaf at higher concentration. In vitro protein denaturation was screened by using egg albumin method. The maximum amount of inhibition of protein denaturation was showed in hydro alcoholic extract of stem of P. murex. The above result showed that the hydro alcoholic extract of P. murex possess anti- inflammatory activity. So future to find out the bioactive phytocompounds of plant extract of P. murex, which was used to design the drug for the treatment various type of inflammatory diseases.
