The aim of the present study is to evaluate the antipyretic activity on methanolic plant extract of Tephrosia pupurea using yeast induced pyrexia method in albino rats. Tephrosia purpurea linn (Family: Fabaceae) is a copiously branched herbaceous perennial plant distributed throughout the tropics and commonly known as Sarponkha in India. The results of the statistical analysis showed that methanolic extract of Tephrosia purpurea had significant (p<0.05) dose dependent antipyretic properties at 250 and 500mg/kg on pyrexia induced by yeast on albino wistar rats. Hence present investigation reveals the antipyretic activity of the methanolic plant extract of Tephrosia purpurea.
