Phytotherapeutic profile of some plants used in folk medicine.
The effect of nine vegetable extracts was evaluated on the carrageenin-induced oedema in the rat. Our results show that the above extracts are able to exert - at different degree - a very marked decrease of the inflammed site related to the presence in the considered plants of several active biologically compounds as sterols and flavonoids. Preliminary chemical analysis of these vegetables are also reported.
