Objective; The study aimed to determine anti-inflammatory activity of lotus flower crowns ethanol extract on rats induced by carrageenan. Method; The research was experimental method. The samples were male white rats. The anti-inflammatory activity test was carried out on animals divided into 5 groups, each of which got 3 animals with the suspension test group of Lotus Flower Ethanol Extract (EEBS) with doses of 100, 150, 200mg/kg, the negative control group was the CMC Na 1% suspension and the positive control was diclofenac Na 2.25mg/kgBW. Observations were made for 6 hours. Data were analyzed using the one way analysis of variance (ANOVA) test. Results; The results of this study showed that the anti-inflammatory activity of EEBS at doses of 100, 150 and 200 mg/kgBW was significantly different from the negative control group CMC Na 1%, but not significantly different from the control group with positive sodium diclofenac 2.25mg/kgBW.
