Inhibitory Effect of Helicteres gardneriana Ethanol Extract on Acute Inflammation
Exudate volume and total and differential leukocytes counts in inflammatory pleural Exudate of rats, 4 h after injection of carrageenan (Cg, 200 μg/cavity).
Groups of animals
Exudate volume (mL)
Cg + Sal
Cg + DMSO
Cg + Dex0.5
Cg + EEHg250
Cg + EEHg500
Each value represents the mean ± S.E.M. of 6–8 animals. Dexamethasone (Dex) administered orally, 0.5 mg/Kg was used as a reference anti-inflammatory (positive control). Basal = animals that received injection of PBS in the cavity (PBS + Sal), Cg = carrageenan, Sal = 0.9% saline, DMSO = 16% dimethylsulfoxide, EEHg = ethanol extract of Helicteres gardneriana. a, b, and c, compared to basal group, d, e compared to groups Cg + Sal and Cg + DMSO (one-way ANOVA, Tukey’s test).
