Herbal plants are natural sourcefor obtaining natural medicines. The Caralluma fimfriata wall plant belongs to family Asclepiadaceae. The plant contain different chemical constituent such as alkaloid, flavonoid The main aim of the study was to extract the plant material by using methanol as a solvent by using soxhlet extraction method. from the phytochemical analysis, the plant was showed chemical constituent. The isolation and separation of chemical constituent were done by chromatograhic technique such as thin layer chromatography and column chromatography. The each chemical constituent were identified by performing its physical and chemical test. The isolated chemical constituent were subjected to further study that is it was used for spectral analysis, by using UV-Visible spectrophotometer, IR, NMR spectroscopy, Mass spectroscopy, The methanolic extract of Caralluma fimbriata was further used for pharmacological study such as immunomodulatory activity. The increase in immunomodulatory activity of C. fimbriata was done by using neutrophil adhesion test.
