It was concluded that the methanolic leaf extract of Cocculus hirsutus possess analgesic and anti - inflammatory effects in laboratory animals.

Anti-inflammatory, Analgesic Activity and Toxicity of Two Pelargonium inquinans Ait Essential Oils: Wild and Cultivated

The wild and cultivated P. inquinans leaf and stem essential oils displayed significant but comparable analgesic and anti-inflammatory activities in rodents, indicating they are non-toxic orally.

Anti-inflammatory and analgesic activities of solvent fractions of the leaves of Moringa stenopetala Bak. (Moringaceae) in mice models

Evidence is provided on the traditionally claimed uses of the plant in pain and inflammatory diseases, and Moringa stenopetala could be potential source for development of new analgesic and anti-inflammatory drugs.

Anti-inflammatory activity of the hexane extract of Byrsonima crassifolia seeds in experimental animal models.

The results indicate that the anti-inflammatory effect of NS on mouse paw edema occurs via the inhibition of NO production, as does theAnti- inflammatory effect of L-NAME but not the anti -inflammatory effectof diclofenac.


The methanolic extract of Ceiba pentandra showed a significant anti-inflammatory and analgesic effect when compared with the standard drugs, indomethacin and pentazocine respectively.

Evaluation of analgesic and anti-inflammatory activities of Warionia saharae essential oil

Investigation of the anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects of essential oil extracted from the dried upper parts of Warionia saharae based on different standard experimental test models shows that the essential oil of this plant induces a decrease in the number of abdominal cramps in the contortion test and a maximum inhibition of pain.

Analgesic and anti-inflammatory activities of Polygonum stagninum

The n-hexane, ethyl acetate (EtOAc), and methanol extracts of the aerial parts of Polygonum stagninum Buch.-Ham. ex Meissn. (Polygonaceae), a Bangladeshi medicinal plant, were assessed for analgesic

Anti-inflammatory and anti-edematogenic action of the Croton campestris A. St.-Hil (Euphorbiaceae) essential oil and the compound β-caryophyllene in in vivo models.

Analgesic effects of eucalyptus essential oil in mice

EOE, which is associated with the μ-opioid pain pathway, showed potential effects against somatic, inflammatory, and visceral pain and could be a potential therapeutic agent for pain.



Antiinflammatory effects of euclyptol (1.8-cineole) in bronchial asthma: inhibition of arachidonic acid metabolism in human blood monocytes ex vivo.

1.8-cineole was shown to inhibit LTB4 and PGE2, both pathways of AA-metabolism, both paths of which are prescribed to treat chronic obstructive airway disorders.

Inhibition of cytokine production and arachidonic acid metabolism by eucalyptol (1.8-cineole) in human blood monocytes in vitro.

This is the first report on a new mechanism of action of monoterpenes suggesting 1.8-cineole as a strong inhibitor of cytokines that might be suitable for longterm treatment of airway inflammation in bronchial asthma and other steroid-sensitive disorders.

The potency ratios obtained for aspirin, phenylbutazone and hydrocortisone are fairly close to the ratios of their respective daily doses in the treatment of rheumatic disease.

Antibacterial and antifungal activity of ten essential oils in vitro.

All twelve fungi were inhibited by seven oils (aegle, citronella, geranium, lemongrass, orange, palmarosa and patchouli), and eucalyptus and peppermint oils were effective against eleven fungi.

Dextran and carrageenan evoke different inflammatory responses in rat with respect to composition of infiltrates and effect of indomethacin.

The data suggest that inflammatory infiltrates may be formed through two distinct mechanisms: one associated with transudation of protein-free fluids, the other to exudations of plasma proteins and neutrophils.

Lipoxygenase-derived mediators may be involved in in vivo neutrophil migration induced by Bothrops erythromelas and Bothrops alternatus venoms.

Summary A simple method has been designed for evaluating both non-narcotic and narcotic analgesics. The method is based upon the specific antagonism of analgesics to the typical “syndrome” produced

A eucalyptus-based insect repellent with the principal active ingredient p-menthane-3,8-diol was evaluated in the field in comparison with deet, with no significant difference between PMD and deet in terms of efficacy and duration of protection.

Role of pertussis toxin A subunit in neutrophil migration and vascular permeability

Data show that Ptx inhibits neutrophil-mediated inflammation in vivo and that this effect is dependent on the ADP-ribosyltransferase activity of the A protomer.
