Antinociceptive and Anti-inflammatory Activities of Flower (Alangium salvifolium) Extract

Ronok Zahan, Laizuman Nahar and Mst. Luthfun Nesa

Abstract:
The present study aimed to evaluate the antinociceptive and anti-inflammatory activity of Alangium salvifolium (AS) flower in mice. The antinociceptive activity was determined using tail immerson, acetic acid induced writhing and formalin induced licking test. Antiinflammatory effects were evaluated using carrageenan and formalin induced paw edema in mice. The methanol extract (50 and 100 mg kg-1) of flower of AS followed by chloroform extract (100 mg kg-1) produced a significant inhibition of both phases of the formalin pain test in mice, a reduction in mice writhing induced by acetic acid and delayed the response of mice to hot water thermal stimulation in tail immersion test. All flowers extract of AS also produced a substantial inhibition (nearly 50%) of carrageenan and formalin induced paw edema. The inhibitions were similar to those produced by indomethacin, p.o. The different alkaloids and flavonoids found in the extract could be account for the antinociceptive and anti-inflammatory actions.
