Anti-inflammatory activity of 3β-hydroxy-2,3-dihydro-withanolide F has been assessed and it was found to possess marked effects in sub-acute inflammation. A comparison of the anti-inflammatory properties showed that it is approximately 5 times more active than phenylbutazone and equally active to that of hydrocortisone on weight basis. The withanolide did not exhibit any effect on CNS.
