Abstract.Objective: To examine the effects of C-phycocyanin, a pigment found in blue-green algae which acts as an antioxidant in vitro and in vivo, in different animal models of inflammation.¶Material: Male Sprague Dawley rats and OF1 mice were used.¶Treatments: Oedema was induced by: a) AA (0.5 mg/ear) or TPA (4 μg/ear) in the mouse ear b) carrageenan injection (0.1 mL of 1% suspension) in the rat paw (± adrenalectomy) and c) cotton pellet implantation in the rat axilla. Phycocyanin (50–300 mg… CONTINUE READING
