  author={Maneesha D. Sati and Rakesh Raturi and P. P. Badoni and Harpreet Singh},
s The present study is an endeavour to evaluate anti inflammatory and antioxidant activities of ehtanolic extract of steam bark of Zanthoxylum armatum. In vivo anti inflammatory activity was evaluated in wistar species of rats by using carrageenin induced paw edema, where as in vitro antioxidant activity was performed by DPPH free radical method. The plant extract exhibited significant anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activities.

Mediators of the inflammation induced in the rat paw by carrageenin
It was concluded that kinins and 5‐HT contributed significantly to oedema formation during this period, and mepyramine and methysergide, at the doses used in the carrageenin experiments, completely antagonized histamine and5‐HT, respectively, and did not affect the skin responses of bradykinin.

Biphasic development of carrageenin edema in rats.
The discovery that carrageenin was charred by heat treatment at 130°C for 16 hr, it elicited the full first phase edema volume without subsequent development of the second phase indicates that the secondphase is not a consequence of processes initiated during the first phase but is dependent on the structural integrity of the irritant molecule.

Involvement of resident macrophages and mast cells in the writhing nociceptive response induced by zymosan and acetic acid in mice.
The results suggest that the nociceptive activity of zymosan and acetic acid in the writhing model is due to the release of TNF-alpha, interleukin 1beta and interleucin 8 by resident peritoneal macrophages and mast cells. Expand
