Tinospora cordifolia Willd. (Menispermaceae) has been used in Indian and Chinese traditional medicines against various ailments. To demonstrate the antiarthritic activity of ethanol extract of Tinospora cordifolia arthritis was induced in Wistar rats using Freund’s complete adjuvant and Bovine type II collagen. We used various haematological parameters to assess the effectiveness of the treatment. These were supported by histological study of the affected ankle joints using haematoxylin and eosin. Results suggested that oral dosage of 150 mg/kg body weight exhibited anti-arthritic activity in Freund’s adjuvants arthritic rats. In collagen induced arthritic rats, the dosage of 100 mg/kg body weight showed anti-arthritic activity. We conclude that the Tinospora cordifolia demonstrates a significant anti-arthritic activity
