|Abstract: ||The methanol and chloroform extracts of the root of Combretum dolichopetalum were obtained and
gave yields of 6.48%
w/w and 0.38% w/w respectively. The methanol extract significantly inhibited car
ageenin-induced mouse paw edema in a dose-dependent manner after an oral treatment.
effect was achieved at a dose of 600 mg/kg and the result was comparable to that of indomethacin (10
mg/kg). The antiinflammatory activity of the chloroform extract against croton-oil induced mouse ear
edema was significant (p
< 0.001) and increased with the dose. The maximum effect (93%) was
achieved with 1.0 mg of the extract per ear. email@example.com|
