ABSTRACT
Crude aqueous bark extract of Cinnamon loureiroi. was evaluated for counter irritant activity. Irritation was induced by the clockwise frictional movement of fine sand paper to the ear of rabbits of average 1.5 kg body weight. The counter-irritant activity was determined by calculating the mean decrease in redness and erythma with those of control. cinnamon extract (25, 50, 75, 100μg / 10 ml) showed counter irritant when compared with standard drug dexamethasone. All the extracts, showed the counter irritant activity. Highest (91.97% inhibition) and the lowest (41.39 % inhibition) respectively.
