Three Bangladeshi medicinal plants Rhaphidophora glauca, Phrynium imbricatumSteudnera, colocasiifolia, have been investigated for their in vitro Arthritic and membrane stabilizing activity. Inhibition proteinase actions were evaluated to assess the antiarthritic effect of the selected plant extracts and membrane stabilizing activity were assessed by using hypotonic solution and heat-induced method. In highest concentration of Rhaphidophora glauca, Phrynium imbricatum, Steudnera colocasiifolia, shows significant antiarthritic activity (53.16%, 69.62%, 62.03%) and membrane stabilizing activity (49.05%, 71.9%, 60.22%) compared with Diclofenac-Na. Further in depth studies on this plant can result in an eco-friendly cost effective antiarthritic herbal drug with anti-inflammatory potential contributing towards the better healthcare of human society.
