Antinociceptive, Anticonvulsant and anti-inflammatory activities of Rhamnus procumbens
YV Rao, SPD Dwivedi, VB Pandey
The ethyl acetate soluble fraction of alcoholic extract of the bark of Rhamnus procumbens (ERP) showed antinociceptive activity by the rat tail hot wire technique, anticonvulsant effect against supramaximal electroshock seizures and anti-inflammatory property against carrageenin induced pedal oedema in albino rats. Further, ERP did not produce any acute mortality (24 hours) in albino mice after intraperitoneal administration.
