Potent anti-inflammatory activity was demonstrated in an animal model for both single-dose and ch ronic-dose applications of a dried leaf decoction of fenugreek Fenugreek 408
(Ahmad iani et a I 2001). The effectiveness of the 1000 mg/kg dose of the extract was
relatively equal to 300 mg/kg sodium salicylate for single dosing; however, chronic administration was more effective than sodium salicylate. Additionally, the fenugreek decoction demonstrated stronger antipyretic activity than that of sodium salicylate.
