Abstract

Zingiber officinale (ginger) is common part of the diet in many parts of the world, Recent research has found ginger to have various pharmacological properties due to a variety of active constituents, including shogoals and gingerols. It is a member of zingiberaceae family originated in Southeast Asia and has been introduced to many parts of the globe where it proliferates in suitable environment. Ginger contain constituents with anti-inflammatory properties. The fresh and dried ginger both contains active 6 – gingerol and gingerdion along with other  resinous pungent principle, extracted with n- hexane and methanol that are responsible for  inhibition of  inflammatory metabolite's production by lipooxygenase and cyclooxyganse. The present  paper aimed to determine  anti- inflammatory effects of Zingiber officinale extract in experimental animals .The anti-inflammatory activity was assessed by using carrageenan it showed that the plant extract has anti-inflammatory effect in rats by using acetic acid model. The present paper indicated that plant extract has analgesic activity in dose dependent pattern.
