  • The polar and nonpolar extracts of the brown alga Sargassum wightii (Greville) J. Agardh, collected during winter (November– January),spring(February–April),summer(May–July)andautumn(August–October)wereevaluatedforanti-inflammatoryactivity using carrageenan-induced paw edema in rats. Effect of hexane, methanol and butanol extracts was measured at a dose of 100 mg/kg from 1st–4th hour of inflammation. All the extracts of winter collection exhibited significant (Pb0.001) anti-inflammatory… CONTINUE READING
