The aim of the present study is to phytochemical analysis and invitro antiarthritic activities of whole plant of Hybanthus enneaspermus. The ethanolic extract of the plant was subjected to qualitative analysis for the presence of phytochemical substances. The invitro anti arthritic activity was determined by measuring the percentage of inhibition of protein denaturation. The phytochemical analysis showed the presence of alkaloids, flavonoids, tannins, terpenoids, saponins, steroids and reducing sugars. The antiarthritic activity was determined by protein inhibition assay. The percentage protection was found to be 64.6 % for extract and 91.2% (Diclofenac sodium). The IC50 value for the extract was found to 512.6 µg/ml and for the standard it was found to be 172.82 µg/ml.
