The antipyretic activity of the alcoholic extracts for the Tamarix aucheriana, T. nilotica, and T. aphylla were measured in the Wistar albino male rats (150-180 g) by using a yeast-induced hyperpyrexia test. The carrageenan - induced paw edema method. The anti-inflammatory activity of the T. aucheriana, T. nilotica, and T. aphylla extracts was measured. The edema was expressed as an increase in paw volume. The analgesic activity of the alcoholic extracts of the T. aucheriana, T. nilotica, and T. aphylla were implemented in the Swiss albino mice by using acetic acid induced writhing and hot plate methods.
