The aim of this study was to ascertain the anti-arthritic active fraction of Capparis spinosa L. (Capparidaceae) fruits and its chemical constituents. The adjuvant arthritic rat model was developed to evaluate the anti-arthritic effects of different fractions of ethanol extraction from C. spinosa L. The fraction eluted by ethanol-water (50:50, v/v) had the most significant anti-arthritic activity. The chemical constituents of this fraction were therefore studied; seven known compounds were…

Antiarthritic activity of hydroalcoholic seed extract of Cassia tora Linn.
The hydroalcoholic (70%) extract of seeds of Cassia tora (at different doses 100, 250 and 500 mg/kg, body weight) was screened for antiarthritic activity. In Complete freund's adjuvant (CFA) induced
Chemical investigation, the antibacterial and antifungal activity of different parts of Capparis spinosa extracts
TLDR
The chemical profiles of the present bioactive responsible for the pharmacological effects of C. spinosa are detail and the presence of polyphenols in different parts of the plant as well as their antimicrobial effects are experimentally demonstrated.
Comparison of Gastric-ulcerogenecity Effect of Methanolic Extract of Capparis spinosa and Indomethacin in Rat
TLDR
The results indicated that percolated extract of C. Spinosa administered orally in antinociceptive dosage and even 2,4 and 8 folds did not cause a gastric ulcer compared to indomethacin, and seems to be a suitable choice for more pharmacological and toxicology examinations to use as analgesic.

Evaluation of extracts and isolated fraction from Capparis spinosa L. buds as an antioxidant source.
TLDR
The findings indicate that the antioxidant efficiency of the methanolic extract may be attributed to its phenolic content, and the antioxidant activity was maintained after removal of glucosinolates, confirming that these compounds do not interfere with the antioxidant properties of the extract.
