Analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties of Thespesia populnea leaf extracts.
Summary of "Analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties of Thespesia populnea leaf extracts."
Analgesic and anti-inflammatory activities of the aqueous and ethanol extracts of Thespesia populnea Soland. ex. Correa (Malvaceae) leaves were evaluated in animal models. Orally-administered aqueous and ethanol extracts (100, 200 and 400?mg?kg(?1) bw) showed significant analgesic activity in chemical-, mechanical- and thermally-induced pain test models in mice. The extracts also reduced paw oedema induced by carrageenan in rats. The results obtained in this study suggest that Thespesia populnea extracts have analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agent with analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and antipyretic properties. It is an inhibitor of cyclooxygenase.
Analgesic antipyretic derivative of acetanilide. It has weak anti-inflammatory properties and is used as a common analgesic, but may cause liver, blood cell, and kidney damage.
A nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agent with analgesic properties used in the therapy of rheumatism and arthritis.
Anti-inflammatory Agents, Non-steroidal
Anti-inflammatory agents that are not steroids. In addition to anti-inflammatory actions, they have analgesic, antipyretic, and platelet-inhibitory actions. They are used primarily in the treatment of chronic arthritic conditions and certain soft tissue disorders associated with pain and inflammation. They act by blocking the synthesis of prostaglandins by inhibiting cyclooxygenase, which converts arachidonic acid to cyclic endoperoxides, precursors of prostaglandins. Inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis accounts for their analgesic, antipyretic, and platelet-inhibitory actions; other mechanisms may contribute to their anti-inflammatory effects. Certain NSAIDs also may inhibit lipoxygenase enzymes or TYPE C PHOSPHOLIPASES or may modulate T-cell function. (AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p 1814-5)
