Each mouse was placed in the beaker on the hot plate in order to obtain its response to electrical heat-induced nociceptive pain stimulus.

Antiinflammtory and Antinociceptive Activities of methanolic extract of the leaves of Fraxinus floribunda Wallich. Cochlospermim and Vernonia kotschyana Sch. Thirty minute after treatment, the reaction time of each mouse was again evaluated but only once on this occasion.

Fruits are elongated valve capsule containing seeds that are embedded in cotton foam Hutchinson and Dalziel, Journal of Essential Oil Research 13 1: In conclusion, the findings of this study suggests that the aqueous methanol root, leaf and root bark extracts of Cochlospermum tinctorium possess significant analgesic and anti-inflammatory activities in laboratory animals and lend credence to the ethnomedical use of the plant in the management of pain and inflammatory conditions.

Wister rats were tinctoriu, into five groups each containing five rats. cochlozpermum

The data presented in this study showed that aqueous leaf, root and root bark extracts of Cochlospermum tinctorium possess significantly analgesic and anti-inflammatory activities. The ability of the extracts to attenuate the acetic acid-induced writhing in mice suggests that they possess analgesic activity. Click on “show more” to view cochlospermhm. Flowering is in the dry season after the savanna burns, and the fruits are ripe about one month after flowering.


Flavonoids especially are known to be effective antimicrobial agents against a wide array of microorganisms; the activity is attributed to their ability to complex with extra cellular and soluble proteins and with bacterial cell wall Cowan, This study is, therefore, aimed at evaluating the analgesic and anti-inflammatory activities of the aqueous methanol extracts of Cochlospermum tinctorium. Few pharmacological studies have been conducted on the plant. Natural Academy press; In Cameroon a yellow facial mask is made from the powdered rootstock mixed cochlos;ermum water.

Goodman and Gilman’s the pharmacological basis of therapeutics. The mean of these three determinations constituted tinctoriu reaction time before treatment of the mouse. Comparison of killing of S. The writhing response of the mouse to intraperitoneally injected noxious chemicals such as acetic acid is used to screen for both central and peripheral analgesic activity.

Phytochemical screening revealed the presence of alkaloids, flavonoids, tannins and cardiac glycosides. Int J Tindtorium Appl Sci. Plant products as antimicrobial agents. The number of writhes was counted using tally counter for each mouse for a period of 10 min after 5 min latency period.

The modulatory effect of Cochlospermum tinctorium a rich aqueous root extract on liver damage induced by carbon tetrachloride in rats. Citation in scholarly articles. To our knowledge, there is no cochlospremum on the analgesic and anti-inflammatory potentials of the plant in cochlosprrmum literature. The extract was subjected to various phytochemical tests to identify the constituent secondary metabolites using standard methods as described by HarborneSofowora and Trease and Evans Release of prostaglandins E and F in an algogenic reaction and its inhibition.

These findings are in agreement with the findings of Holetz et al. The analgesic potentials of the extracts were studied using acetic acid induced writhing and hot plate tests in mice while the anti-inflammatory activity was investigated using carrageenan-induced paw edema in rats. There are 2 news article citations tinctofium to Cochlospermum tinctorium Perr.

They were then size-reduced separately into coarse powder with a pestle and mortar. The MBC result showed that the extract was bactericidal to S. Footnotes Source of Support:
