In this study, we attempted to identify the possible antinociceptive action of aqueous extract (AE) obtained from roots of Physalis angulata, known in Brazil as "Camapu", used to treat various pain-related physiological conditions. The AE of Physalis angulata (10-30 mg/kg) given by i.p. or p.o. route, 0.5 and 1h prior, produced significant inhibition of(More)
Leukocytes play a primary role in vascular inflammation, and thus an understanding of the pathways involved in the activation of these cells and means to inhibit their consequent adhesion to the vessel wall is of significant interest. This study aimed to determine whether statins have a direct effect upon neutrophil adhesive properties under inflammatory(More)
