SummaryThe influence of counter irritation by turpentine (0.2 ml) on zymosan-and carrageenan-oedemas was investigated in the rat. Zymosan-oedema was inhibited by mepyramine and methysergide and by leucopenia. It was not modified by captopril and developed normally in kininogendeficient Brown Norway rats. Leucocytes and mast cell amines but not kinins are thus involved in zymosan-oedema. The last phase of this reaction was inhibited by counter irritation alone, but the odema was largely… Expand
Inhibitory effects of proanthocyanidins from Ribes nigrum leaves on carrageenin acute inflammatory reactions induced in rats
TLDR
The data suggest that the anti-inflammatory properties of PACs are achieved through a different pattern from those of indomethacin, which mainly lies in an interference with the migration of the leukocytes. Expand
Analgesic, anti-inflammatory and antipyretic effects of Ixora coccinea
TLDR
Phytochemical constituents of IC leaves such as flavonoids, tannins, and triterpenes in ethanol extract could be correlated with its observed biological activities and it may be concluded that the IC leaves possessed analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and antipyretic activities. Expand
EVALUATION OF ANTI-NOCICEPTIVE AND ANTI-INFLAMMATORY ACTIVITIES OF EXTRACT OF ERYTHROPHLEUM IVORENSE STEM BARK IN EXPERIMENTAL ANIMALS
Erythrophluem ivorense is a medicinal herb used in Africa to treat ailments such as convulsion, swellings, pain and emesis. Anti-nociceptive and anti-inflammatory activities of the crude methanolExpand
Potentiation of the pro-inflammatory effects of bradykinin by inhibition of angiotensin-converting enzyme and aminopeptidase P in rat paws
TLDR
Angiotensin-converting enzyme and amino-peptidase P appear to be main kinin-inactivating enzymes in rat paws and inactivation of bradykinin and carrageenan induced oedema in normal rats was evaluated. Expand
EVALUATION OF ANTI-INFLAMMATORY POTENTIAL OF KIGELIA PINNATA LEAF EXTRACT IN WISTAR RATS
Aim of the study: The main aim of the present study is to evaluate the anti-inflammatory activity of leaf extract of Kigelia pinnata on wistar rats. Materials & Methods: Anti-inflammatory activity ofExpand
Antinociceptive, anti-inflammatory and antipyretic properties of an aqueous extract of Corchorus capsularis leaves in experimental animal models
TLDR
The aqueous extract of C. capsularis possesses antinociceptive and antipyretic activities and supports the previous claim of its traditional use to treat various ailments. Expand
Anti-inflammatory and anti-nociceptive effects of extract of Astragalus membranaceous
TLDR
Results indicate that AM could have be the anti-inflammatory and anti-nociceptive properties of AM in carrageenan-induced paw edema model, which is commonly used to treat edema and arthritis in traditional Korean medicine. Expand
Anti-inflammatory capacity of the aqueous leaf extract of Senna mimosoides on inhibition of rat oedema, platelet aggregatory activity and prostaglandin synthase activity
The effect of aqueous extract of Senna mimosoides leaves on systemic acute inflammation was evaluated in Wistar albino rats. The LD50 of the extract was found to exceed 5 g/kg as no death wasExpand
Antinociceptive and Anti-Inflammatory Effects of Stachytarpheta jamaicensis (L.) Vahl (Verbenaceae)in Experimental Animal Models
TLDR
The potential of EESJ to exert antinociceptive and anti-inflammatory activities was showed, the former being modulated via peripheral and central mechanisms and involving, in part, activation of the opioid receptor system. Expand

The mechanism of the anti-inflammatory effect of turpentine in the rat
TLDR
It is suggested that the main factor involved is a decrease in leucocyte accumulation into the exudates, which reduced the carrageenan-oedema in normal as well as in adrenalectomized rats. Expand
Mast cell amines and the oedema induced by zymosan and carrageenans in rats.
TLDR
Mepyramine, methysergide or depletion of the 5-hydroxytryptamine stores in mast cells by pretreatment with reserpine inhibited the oedema induced by compound 48/80 and zymosan but did not affect the oesophageal swelling induced by lambda and kappa carrageenans. Expand
Converting enzyme inhibition in the rat by captopril is accompanied by potentiation of carrageenin‐induced inflammation
TLDR
It is suggested that normally, tissue kininase II activity is sufficient to decrease the inflammatory response of the hind paw to carrageenin or bradykinin, and after inhibition of kin inase II with captopril, bradykinsin levels are increased and interact with concomitantly released prostaglandins to potentiate inflammation. Expand
Prostaglandin biosynthesis is not affected by the anti-inflammatory effect of turpentine.
TLDR
In turpentine-pretreated rats, the development of carrageenan induced oedema is reduced, while dextran and PGE2-induced oedemas are not influenced and plasma level of acute phase reactants is greatly increased. Expand
Inflammation, counter irritation and rat serum acute phase α2-macroglobulin levels
TLDR
Results showed that there is no relationship between the degree of irritant-induced inhibition of inflammation and the serum concentration of the acute phase protein, α2-macroglobulin, and at least in the models for counter irritation used in this study, it cannot be viewed as an endogenous anti-inflammatory protein.

Acute turpentine inflammation and kinin release in rat-paw thermic oedema.
Livers from rats at 2-3 days after s.c. injection of turpentine, when perfused, synthesized prekallikrein nearly 3 times faster than did livers from normal rats. On the other hand paw oedema,Expand
The role of the kinin system in various inflammatory models in the rat.
The plasma of a peculiar strain of Brown Norway rats (BN/May Pfd f) is devoid of high molecular weight kininogen and poor in kallikrein. This strain could be used to estimate the involvement of theExpand
Comparative effects of drugs on four paw oedema models in the rat
TLDR
Evaluated the effect of a variety of drugs in a number of novel models of inflammation in the rat produced in the hind paw, finding that the non-steroidal AID's, e.g. aspirin, flufenamic acid, indomethacin, naproxen and phenylbutazone, were active in all four tests. Expand

TLDR
It is shown that carrageenan activates Hageman factor (factor XII) in human plasma, and thus promotes blood coagulation, induces vascular permeability, and liberates kinin, at higher concentrations it also acts as an anticoagulant. Expand
Quantitative studies of the pathway to acute carrageenan inflammation.
TLDR
Findings led to the concept that edema formation is not the result of inflammatory cell mobilization but is rather a consequence of cellular activity, presumably phagocytosis, after mobilization. Expand
