MH Frotan, SB Acharya, R Frotan, NKR Pathak, M Biswas
Alpha-spinasterol, isolaeted from Symplocos spicata, was studied for possible pharmacological actions. The results show that alpha-spinasterol has significant antiinflammatory effect in carrageenin induced acute paw oedema in rats. The antiinflammatory effect is not corticosteroid mediated. Alpha-spinasterol is devoid of any significant CNS activity.
