Effect of Melastoma malabathricum Linn. (MM) on CFA induced arthritic rats. Arthritic was assessed in terms of modulation of proinflammatory mediators such as (a) TNF-α, (b) IL-6, (c) IL-1β and (d) COX-2 as described in Materials and methods. ns = non-significant, CFA = Complete Freund Adjuvant, NC = Normal Control, AC = Arthritic Control, TNF-α = Tumor necrosis factor-α, IL-6 = Interlukin-6, IL-1β = Interlukin 1β. The comparisons were made by ANOVA followed by Dunnett’s test. *P < 0.05 is considered as significant, **P < 0.01 is considered as very significant, ***P < 0.001 is considered as extremely significant
