Aim of study: Adiantum, one of the most widely distributed genera of the family Pteridaceae, is employed in folk medicine worldwide. Adiantum latifolium Lam. has been used in Latin American traditional medicine as anxiolytic, analgesic and antiinflammatory. The present study investigates the antinociceptive and antiinflammatory properties of the methanolic extract of Adiantum latifolium (MEA) in animal models of pain and inflammation to confirm its medicinal use. Material and methods: The…

Pharmacological and Phytochemical Evaluation of Adiantum cuneatum Growing in Brazil
The results showed that the hexane fraction as well as two pure compounds, identified as filicene and filicenal, exhibited potent analgesic activity when evaluated in two models of pain in mice, writhing test and formalin-induced pain.
Anti-inflammatory testing methods: comparative evaluation of mice and rats.
It is found that mice, instead of rats, can be used for the anti-inflammatory screening methods and aspirin inhibited the carrageenin, formalin-induced edema, cotton pellet granuloma and adjuvant arthritis apparently.

The potency ratios obtained for aspirin, phenylbutazone and hydrocortisone are fairly close to the ratios of their respective daily doses in the treatment of rheumatic disease.
Relevance of tumour necrosis factor‐α for the inflammatory and nociceptive responses evoked by carrageenan in the mouse paw
Results clearly indicate that the proinflammatory cytokine TNF‐α plays a critical role in the oedema formation, as well as in the mechanical allodynia and the neutrophil migration, following carrageenan administration into the mouse paw.
Pathway to carrageenan-induced inflammation in the hind limb of the rat.
A sequential 43-step pathway scheme for the inflammatory response of the rat to interdermal injection of carrageenan suggested that dermal mast cells were injured by C, and it is speculated that injured mast cells metabolize arachidonic acid and reactive intermediates, not prostaglandins, mediate the NPIR hyperalgesia and part of the edema.
The formalin test in mice: dissociation between inflammatory and non-inflammatory pain
Inhibition of arachidonic acid-induced ear oedema as a model for assessing topical anti-inflammatory compounds
The ability of compounds not influencing these three types of inflammatory mediators to reduce the oedematous response means the model is of limited value for directed screening.
Interleukin-1β as a potent hyperalgesic agent antagonized by a tripeptide analogue
An analgesic tripeptide analogue of IL-1β is developed which antagonizes hyperalgesia evoked by IL- 1β and by the inflammatory agent carrageenan.
