BackgroundOxidative stress predisposes the human and animal body to diseases like cancer, diabetes, arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, atherosclerosis and chronic inflammatory disorders. Hence, this study seeks to determine the antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-arthritic activities of acetone leaf extracts of nine South African medicinal plants that have been used traditionally to treat arthritis and inflammation.MethodsThe anti-inflammatory activity of the extracts was determined by… 
Phytochemical, Antioxidant, Anti-Arthritic, Anti-Inflammatory and Bactericidal Potentials of the Leaf Extract of Lactuca teraxacifolia
Lactuca taraxacifolia is an important medicinal plant used locally in the treatment or prevention of many human diseases and illnesses. The aim of the study was to investigate the chemical
Policosanol composition, antioxidant and anti-arthritic activities of milk thistle (Silybium marianum L.) oil at different seed maturity stages
TLDR
The milk thistle oil exhibited a potential anti-arthritic and antioxidant activities and that it might contribute to the protection of humans from a variety of diseases like rheumatoid arthritis.
Quantitative screening of phytochemicals and pharmacological attributions of the leaves and stem barks of Macropanax dispermus (Araliaceae) in treating the inflammation and arthritis
TLDR
The present research proved that MDML and MDMS were effective medications for the treatment of inflammation and arthritis.
Inhibition of nitric oxide production and free radical scavenging activities of four South African medicinal plants
TLDR
The results partially validate the ethnomedicinal uses of the selected plant species used for inflammation-related conditions, however, because some of the extracts had potential cytotoxic effects, caution is advised in their use, especially those consumed orally.
Anti-arthritic potentials of aqueous and methanolic leaf extracts of Ardisia solanacea on complete Freund’s adjuvant induced rheumatoid arthritis in rats
TLDR
Methanolic and aqueous extract of Ardisia solanacea exhibited potential antiarthritic effect against CFA-induced arthritic rats and improved prognosis in ASM and ASW administered groups.
An Antioxidant Potential, Quantum-Chemical and Molecular Docking Study of the Major Chemical Constituents Present in the Leaves of Curatella americana Linn
TLDR
The hydroalcoholic extract of Curatella americana (HECA) showed significant antioxidant activity by free radical scavenging probably due to the great presence of flavonoids, which were grouped in the PCA and HCA analysis with the standard gallic acid.

Anti-inflammatory and anti-arthritic effects of yucca schidigera: A review
TLDR
Yucca phenolics are also anti-oxidants and free-radical scavengers, which may aid in suppressing reactive oxygen species that stimulate inflammatory responses, and further studies on the anti-arthritic effects of Yucca schidigera are warranted.
IN­VITRO ANTIOXIDANT AND ANTI­INFLAMMATORY ACTIVITY OF METHANOL EXTRACT OF OXALIS CORNICULATA LINN
Methanol extract of whole plant of Oxalis corniculata Linn (Family: Oxalidaceae) was assessed for its antioxidant and anti‐inflammatory activity by in­vitro methods. Antioxidant activity was studied

Anti-inflammatory compounds of plant origin. Part I. Action on arachidonic acid pathway, nitric oxide and nuclear factor kappa B (NF-kappaB).
TLDR
Current knowledge of the mechanisms by which a large range of plant-derived constituents interfere with three relevant targets involved in the inflammatory process, namely arachidonic acid metabolite pathways, nitric oxide and NF-kappaB are focused on.
