Anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects of the aqueous extract of the stem bark of Ceiba pentandra Gaertn (Bombacaceae) were recorded in rat and mice. Inflammation was induced by carrageenan and cotton pellet. The pain was studied using analgesymeter, Koster and hot plate Methods. Aqueous extract (400 and 800 mg/kg) of Ceiba pentandra presents a significant anti-inflammatory and analgesic activity. Flavono?ds present in the extract seem to be responsible for the activity.

Possible mechanisms of anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects of the aqueous extracts of Ceiba pentandra Gaertn (Bombacaceae) and Chromolaena odorata L (King and Robinson) (Astéraceae) in rat

An inhibiting pain of the two extracts at the doses used on the two phases (neurogenic response and inflammatory response) of pain in spite of the preliminary administration of naloxone suggests that these two extracts could act by interfering with their inflammatory mechanisms.
