Abstract: The present study aimed to investigate the anti-pyretic effect of Physalis micrantha methanol extract (MEPM) in Mus musculus. Findings suggest that MEPM at 250 and 500 mg/kg (p.o.) showed a significant anti-pyretic effect on the test system in comparison to the control (vehicle) groups. Physalis micrantha might be a good source of anti-pyretic agents. Further studies are needed to isolate and quantify chemical constituents present in this plant and to evaluate possible mechanisms of action for the anti-pyretic activity in suitable test systems.
