The present study investigates the anti-nociceptive activity of crude methanol extract of Hypericum oblongifolium.
In vivo acetic acid induced writhing test was used for anti-nociceptive effects at 10mg, 20 mg and 30 mg/kg body wt. respectively intraperitoneally.
The extract doses of 10, 20 and 30 mg/kg i.p. revealed significant inhibitory effect (P < 0.001) in acetic acid induced writhing test.
The methanol extract of medicinal plant Hypericum oblongifolium showed significant analgesic / anti-nociceptive effects in animal models and thus validates the traditional uses of the plant in painful conditions.
