The present study was undertaken to evaluate the antipyretic and analgesic activities of the alcohol extract of Cassytha filiformis leaves. The antipyretic activity of C. filiformis (25mg/kg, 50mg/kg and 100mg/kg) was studied in Brewer’s yeast induced pyrexia in rats. The analgesic activity of C. filiformis (25mg/kg, 50mg/kg and 100mg/kg) was studied using Eddy’s hot plate method and heat conduction method in mice. The extract showed significant reduction in the elevated body temperature of rat which was compared with standard Paracetamol. The extract produced significant increase in the reaction time by Eddy”s hot plate method and tail flick method in mice which was compared with standard diclofenac sodium. The alcohol extract of leaves of C. filiformis may have antipyretic and analgesic activities.
