Abstract: Folk herbal practitioners of the Cholistan desert claim antipyretic activity in Fagonia indica Burm. f. . To validate the claim of local herbal practitioners, hydroalcohalic extract of aerial parts of Fagonia were orally tested at 25mg/kg, 50mg/kg and 100mg/kg of body weight for antipyretic effect in E. coli induced pyrexia in rabbits. As compared to the negative and positive control groups the dose rate 100mg/kg showed high antipyretic activity followed by the dose of 50mg/kg and 25mg/kg body weight. The results of present study leads to conclude that the hydro-alcohlic extract of Fagonia cretica have significant antipyretic activity.
