A methanolic extract of Hypericum empetrifolium Willd. was evaluated for anti-inflammatory properties in rats (subplantar edema induced by carrageenan) and analgesic effects in mice (hot plate and writhing tests). Our results showed that the methanolic extract exhibits a significant anti-inflammatory activity and analgesic effects only in one of the experimental models (writhing,test). Therefore, we may suppose that the methanolic extract of H. empetrifolium is active against inflammatory pain. (C) 2001 Editions scientifiques et medicales Elsevier SAS.

Abstract

A methanolic extract of Hypericum empetrifolium Willd. was evaluated for anti-inflammatory properties in rats (subplantar edema induced by carrageenan) and analgesic effects in mice (hot plate and writhing tests). Our results showed that the methanolic extract exhibits a significant anti-inflammatory activity and analgesic effects only in one of the experimental models (writhing,test). Therefore, we may suppose that the methanolic extract of H. empetrifolium is active against inflammatory pain. (C) 2001 Editions scientifiques et medicales Elsevier SAS.
