OBJECTIVE To evaluate the analgesic activity of the ethyl acetate, methanol and aqueous extracts of Pleurotus eous (P. eous) mushroom. METHODS The dried fruiting bodies were extracted with ethyl acetate, methanol and water. The analgesic effect of extracts of P. eous were investigated at doses 250,500 and 1,000 mg/kg body weight, using acetic-acid induced writhing, hot-plate, tail immersion and tail-clip tests. RESULTS P. eous extracts produced significant reduction in number of writhes… CONTINUE READING
