Abstract The aqueous extract of Swertia chirata Buch Ham. Root ASC Family: Gentianaceae was evaluated for its antipyretic potential on Brewer’s yeastinduced pyrexia in albino rats and Typhoid-Paratyphoid A, B vaccine induced Hyperexia in rabbits. In both models, the extract, at dose of 200 mg kg−1 body wt. and 400 mg kg−1 body weight, produced significant p<0.001 reduction in elevated body temperature in a dose dependent manner. The antipyretic effect of the extract was comparable to that of paracetamol 150 mg kg−1 body weight, p.o., a standard antipyretic agent.
