Olajide, Olumayokun A and Alada, A R (2001) Studies on the anti-inflammatory properties of Entada abyssinica. Fitoterapia, 72 (5). pp. 492-496. ISSN 0367-326XMetadata only available from this repository.
The defatted methanolic extract of Entada abyssinica was evaluated for anti-inflammatory activity in acute and chronic models of inflammation. The extract (50-200 mg/kg, p.o.) exhibited dose-dependent and significant inhibition of both the carrageenan-induced rat paw oedema and granuloma tissue formation in rats. The extract (50-200 mg/kg, p.o.) was also found to inhibit the acetic acid-induced vascular permeability in a dose-dependent fashion in mice. This study demonstrated the anti-inflammatory activity of Entada abyssinica.
