Abstract The anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial activities of the 95\% ethanol extract, benzene fraction and isolated triterpenoids of Strobilanthes callosus were investigated. In the carrageenan-induced paw edema inflammation model, the taraxerol showed a high reduction of edema, but the antimicrobial effect observed was lower at the two doses employed. These results confirm the use of this plant in folk medicine as an anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial herbal drug.
