A previous study reported the in vivo anti-inflammatory and antinociceptive activities of essential oil of the underground stem bark of Duguetia furfuracea, termed EODf. This study aimed to obtain a phenylpropanoid-enriched fraction from the D. furfuracea (EFDf) essential oil and to investigate its anti-inflammatory and antinociceptive effects. The chemical composition of the EFDf was determined by gas chromatography–mass spectrometry (GC–MS). The in vivo anti-inflammatory activity was… 

Phenylpropanoids in species of plants of the Duguetia genus: A review

The Duguetia species can be a potential source of phenylpropanoids and future studies involving their extraction, identification, and application are still necessary and may culminate in the discovery of new drug candidates or natural agricultural defensives.

Essential Oils of Duguetia Species A. St. Hill (Annonaceae): Chemical Diversity and Pharmacological Potential

The pharmacological effects of Duguetia species EOs included anti-inflammatory, antinociceptive, antibacterial, antifungal, antioxidant, anti-trypanosoma, cytotoxic and antitumor properties.

Evaluation of analgesic and anti-inflammatory activities of Hydrocotyle umbellata L., Araliaceae (acariçoba) in mice.

Results showed that EEA of H. umbellata L. presents analgesic and anti-inflammatory activities, and that a blockade of activity or reduction in the release of different mediators, such as histamine and serotonin, could be involved in these pharmacologic effects.

Evaluation of analgesic and anti‐inflammatory activities of Nectandra megapotamica (Lauraceae) in mice and rats

It was suggested that the analgesic effects obtained for EBCA could be due mainly to the presence of its major compound, α‐asarone (1), which showed activity in the abdominal constriction test and the anti‐inflammatory assay.

Peripheral and central antinociceptive effects of the butanolic fraction of Byrsonima verbascifolia leaves on nociception-induced models in mice

The results demonstrate that BvBF possesses marked peripheral and central antinociceptive activities and is devoid of sedative and hypomotility effects, and seems to be responsible, at least in part, for these antiniceptive effects.

Anti-inflammatory and antiarthritic effects of piperine in human interleukin 1β-stimulated fibroblast-like synoviocytes and in rat arthritis models

It is suggested that piperine has anti-inflammatory, antinociceptive, and antiarthritic effects in an arthritis animal model and should be further studied with regard to use either as a pharmaceutical or as a dietary supplement for the treatment of arthritis.
