Evaluation of the antinociceptive activities of the aqueous root extract of Alchornea cordifolia (Schumach and Thonn) Müll. Arg. (Euphorbiaceace)
TLDR
The results of the study suggest an analgesic property demonstrated by the aqueous root extract of Alchornea cordifolia possibly mediated by central and peripheral mechanisms and thus confirm the folkloric uses of the plant in painful disorders.
IN VITRO ANTIOXIDANT AND ANTI-INFLAMMATORY ACTIVITIES OF ALCHORNEA CORDIFOLIA (SCHUMACH AND THONN.) MULL. ARG. AND ANTROCARYON KLAINEANUM PIERRE EXTRACTS
Objective: This study aims to evaluate the in vitro antioxidant, anti-inflammatory activities of the aqueous and hydroethanolic extracts recipe of Alchornea cordifolia and Antrocaryon klaineanum. A
Evaluation of the anti-arthritic activity of the hydroethanolic leaf extract of Alchornea cordifolia in rats.
TLDR
Results of this study lend credence to the folkloric use of water decoction of Alchornea cordifolia leaves against rheumatoid arthritis, however, further pharmacological investigations would be required at isolating and determining the active anti-arthritic molecule(s) in HEAC in the nearest future.
Topical anti-inflammatory constituents of lipophilic leaf fractions of Alchornea floribunda and Alchornea cordifolia
TLDR
Two highly lipophilic fractions AFLF and ACLF isolated from A. floribunda and A. cordifolia leaves respectively were investigated for topical anti-inflammatory effects using xylene-induced mice ear oedema as a model of inflammation.
Phytochemical screening and anti-inflammatory properties of Algerian Hertia cheirifolia methanol extract
TLDR
Methanol extract of H. cheirifolia possesses a strong anti- inflammatory activity and may be considered an interesting source of effective anti-inflammatory compounds.
Anti-inflammatory activity of aqueous methanolic extract of Swietenia mahagoni (L.) Jacq. (Meliaceae) leaves

TLDR
Treatment with aqueous methanolic extract of Swietenia mahagoni (L.) Jacq.
Anti-inflammatory activity of Alchornea triplinervia ethyl acetate fraction: Inhibition of H2O2, NO and TNF-α
TLDR
It is suggested that AtF presents anti-inflammatory activity, supporting the traditional use of A. triplinervia in Brazilian folk medicine and related to the presence of phenolic compounds in the plant leaves.
Acute Toxicity and Antipyretic Activities of a Methanolic Extract of Alchornea cordifolia Leaves
TLDR
Alchornea cordifolia may inhibit prostaglandins-biosynthesis from hypothalamus not only during fever but also when body temperature is normal, and support claims on its traditional uses in management of fever.
Deeper Insights on Alchornea cordifolia (Schumach. & Thonn.) Müll.Arg Extracts: Chemical Profiles, Biological Abilities, Network Analysis and Molecular Docking
TLDR
A cordifolia is demonstrated to be a species worthy of further investigations, given its richness in bioactive phytochemicals and wide potentialities for antioxidants and pharmacological agents.
