Polysaccharides (PLS) have notably diverse pharmacological properties. In the present study, we investigated the previously unexplored anti-inflammatory and antinociceptive activities of the PLS fraction isolated from the marine red alga Digenea simplex. We found that the PLS fraction reduced carrageenan-induced edema in a dose-dependent manner, and(More)
Flour made from Passiflora edulis fruit peel has been used in Brazil to treat diabetes. This study evaluated the effects of pectin from P. edulis on rats with alloxan-induced diabetes, on myeloperoxidase release from human neutrophils, and on carrageenan-induced paw edema. In the experiments on carrageenan-induced paw edema, paws were dissected for(More)
In the present study, the brown seaweed Spatoglossum schroederi was submitted to extraction procedures in order to obtain methanol (MET) extract and its hexane (HEX) and chloroform (CLR) fractions. All samples were evaluated for total phenolic and flavonoid contents as well as antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. The HEX fraction was the richest in(More)
