Abstract

The analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties of equimolar concentrations of the methanolic extracts of Alstonia Boneei check for this species in other resources (MEAB), Ficus Elastica check for this species in other resources (MEFE) and Xylopia Aethiopica check for this species in other resources (MEXA) were investigated in 0.1% acetic acid induced Pain (Writhing) in Mice , and 0.4ml of 0. 1% carrageenan induced inflammation in rats as a model of acute inflammation and compared with Indomethacin. The MEAB and MEXA at concentrations used did not produce significant or marked inflammatory and analgesic effects while MEFE significantly (p <0.05) inhibited carrageenan induced inflammation and acetic acid induced writhing.
