Leaves of Thottea dependens have been used as folk medicine in Malaysia for the treatment of
several conditions involving pain and inflammation with accompanying pyrexia. However, there is no scientific
evidence for its effectiveness to treat fever. Hence, the purpose of this study was to evaluate the anti-pyretic
activity of methanol (MeOH) and aqueous (Aq) extracts of T. dependens leaves in albino mice (ICR strain).
