Preliminary phytochemical screening of Stachytarpheta mutabilis with methanol revealed the presence of various phytocomponents such as phenols, flavonoids, steroids, saponins, alkaloids, tannins, terpenoids, etc. In vitro anti-inflammatory activity was assessed using a nitric oxide scavenging test at various concentrations. Indomethacin was used as the standard drug. The results showed that Stachytarphea mutabilis Methanol Extract (SMME) exhibited significant anti-inflammatory activity in vitro over a concentration range of 100-500 g/mL. The study aimed to evaluate anti-inflammatory activity in vivo in rats. The results obtained in the present study indicate that methanol extracts from Stachytarphea mutabilis can be a potential source of anti-inflammatory agent. In vitro anti-inflammatory study showed 44.19 % and in vivo studies showed that 42 % activity.
