Aloysia triphylla, known in Jordan as Mellisa, is a plant that belongs to the Verbenaceae. This plant has been used in herbal medicine as sedative agent and helps to counter depression. Phytochemical analysis of the ground aerial parts of Aloysia triphylla resulted in the isolation of two known compounds: artemitin and hesperidin. The two compounds were assessed for antinociceptive activities in mice, using the classical in vivo model of pain, the hot plate test. Artemitin and hesperidin (given…

Antinociceptive and anti-inflammatory effects of Amygdalus eburnea shell root extract in mice

The findings demonstrated that in the hot-plate and tail-flick tests, A. eburnea extract particularly at the dose of 750 mg/kg demonstrated a considerable analgesic effect; so that there was a significant difference between the extract-treated group and the control group (p<0.05).

Antinociceptive Activities of the Methanolic Extract of the Stem Bark of Boswellia dalzielii Hutch. (Burseraceae) in Rats Are NO/cGMP/ATP-Sensitive-K+ Channel Activation Dependent

The present work reveals the antinociceptive activities of BDME both in inflammatory and in neuropathic models of pain.

Aloysia citriodora Palau

Aloysia citriodora Palau, cedron or lemon verbena, is a South American aromatic species, widespread in North America, Eurasia, and Africa, and its cancer-related effects and antioxidant activity linked in various ways to the authors' health are of particular interest.

In vivo antinociceptive and anti-inflammatory potential of hesperidin and its cyclodextrin inclusion compounds

The obtained results demonstrate that the H ES-βCD inclusion compounds exhibited antinociceptive action predominantly on experimental non-inflammatory nociception models, while HES-HP- βCD exhibited anti-inflammatory and antinOCiceptive activities predominantly in inflammatory nocICEption models.

The analgesic effect of the ethanolic extract of Matricaria aurea

The results indicate that the analgesic effect of M. aurea ethanolic extract is both centrally and peripherally mediated.



Evaluation of the antiedematogenic activity of artemetin isolated from Cordia curassavica DC.

The crude dichloromethane extract and artemetin fraction showed significant antiedematogenic activity, reducing the edema by 42, 57 and 45% and 46, 62 and 69%, 3, 4 and 5 h after carrageenin administration, respectively.

Chemical constituents of Artemisia arborescens and the effect of the aqueous extract on rat isolated smooth muscle.

Phytochemical analysis of the ground aerial parts of Artemisia arborescens resulted in the isolation from the ethanolic extract of the known compounds: artemitin, arborescin, sesamin,

Pharmacological Evaluation of the Anti‐inflammatory Activity of a Citrus Bioflavonoid, Hesperidin, and the Isoflavonoids, Duartin and Claussequinone, in Rats and Mice

The results indicate that hesperidin obtained from citrus cultures may present a potential therapeutical use as a mild antiinflammatory agent, being also useful as a precursor of new flavonoids endowed with such activity.

Anti-inflammatory activity and sub-acute toxicity of artemetin.

The 5-hydroxy-3,6,7,3',4'-pentamethoxyflavone (artemetin) from Cordia verbenacea DC (Boraginaceae) showed marked anti-inflammatory activity using various experimental models in rats and sub-acute toxicological experiments indicated a very low toxicity.
