The present study has been undertaken to assess the analgesic and the anti-inflammatory properties of methanolic extract Dichrostachys glomerata fruit. Pain was induced in mice by the intraperitoneal administration of 1 % acetic acid, and formalin. Carrageenan and histamin (1%) were used to induce inflammation in rat paws. At the doses of 25 and 50 mg/kg, D. glomerata significantly inhibited pain induced by acetic acid with a percentage inhibition of 80.0 and 76.0 %, respectively. The… 
Toxicologic Effects of Dichrostachys glomerata
Aqueous extract of D glomerata caused no toxicity in rats at the smallest dose evaluated (100 mg/kg), and the subchronic oral toxicity, Dglomerata induced no phenotypical signs of toxicity during and after treatment.
An in vivo evaluation of anti-inflammatory, analgesic and anti-pyretic activities of newly synthesized 1, 2, 4 Triazole derivatives
Compounds 3 (compound A) and 5(compound B) are a potential candidate for anti-inflammatory, analgesic and anti-pyretic and the scaffold could be used for further structural modifications.
In Vitro and In Vivo antifungal activities of selected Cameroonian dietary spices
Assessment of extracts from spices used in Cameroonian dietary shows that some of the spices studied possess interesting antifungal properties and could be used to treat candidiasis.
Anti-inflammatory, anthropometric and lipomodulatory effects Dyglomera® (aqueous extract of Dichrostachys glomerata) in obese patients with metabolic syndrome
The results confirm the hypothesis that Dyglomera®, the aqueous extract of DG, has anti-inflammatory properties, and is effective in reducing cardiovascular disease risk factors associated with metabolic syndrome in obese human subjects.
Traditionally used herbal plants in anti-inflammatory activity : An Overview
An overview of reported anti-inflammatory activities of recently used herbal plants highlighted with interesting profile of activities between 2012 to 2013 is provided.


Anti-inflammatory and analgesic activities of the aqueous extracts of Margaritaria discoidea (Euphorbiaceae) stem bark in experimental animal models.
Acute toxicity test showed that the plant may be safe for pharmacological uses and provided some justification for the folkloric use of the plant in several communities for conditions such as stomachache, pain and inflammations.
Effects of Hibiscus asper leaves extracts on carrageenan induced oedema and complete Freund's adjuvant-induced arthritis in rats
Observations suggest possible therapeutic potential of the methanolic extract of H. asper leaves in inflammatory disorders like rheumatoid arthritis in Wistar albino rats.
Analgesic, antipyretic and anti-inflammatory properties of Euphorbia hirta.
It is concluded that this plant extract exerts central analgesic properties and remained inactive on chronic processes such as Freund's adjuvant-induced rheumatoid arthritis, if inefficacy was observed on rat backpaws edema and on loss of weight, the aqueous extract reduced the inflammatory hyperalgia.
The Analgesic Effect of Tribulus terrestris Extract and Comparison of Gastric Ulcerogenicity of the Extract with Indomethacine in Animal Experiments
The results of ulcerogenic studies indicate that the gastric ulcerogenecity of plant extract is lower than the indomethacin in the rat's stomach, and it can be concluded that T. terrestris extract has a suitable analgesic effect.
Antinociceptive and anti-inflammatory effects of Crocus sativus L. stigma and petal extracts in mice
It is concluded that aqueous and ethanolic extracts of saffron stigma and petal have an antinociceptive effect, as well as acute and/or chronic anti-inflammatory activity.
Analgesic Effects of Callus Culture Extracts from Selected Species of Phyllanthus in Mice
The results indicate that, similar to previous reported data from the extract of P. corcovadensis, the methanolic extracts of callus culture of Phyllanthus tenellus exhibit potent analgesic properties against neurogenic and inflammatory pain that seem to be unrelated to the activation of opioid mechanisms.
Antinociceptive and antipyretic activities of Pongamia pinnata leaves
It is demonstrated that PLE possesses marked antinociceptive as well as antipyretic activities and thus scientifically validated its use in the treatment of pain and pyretic disorders.
Effects of chlomipramine and fluoxetine on subcutaneous carrageenin-induced inflammation in the rat
The results confirm that antidepressant drugs are able to reduce the development of inflammation in the rat and suggest that the inhibition of substance P production might play a role in mediating the anti-inflammatory effects of chlomipramine.
It could be concluded that Cassia fistula bark extracts (CFA & CFM) possess significant anti-inflammatory and anti oxidant properties.
