Anti-inflammatory and anti-nociceptive effects of the methanolic extract of the stem bark of Ficus vallis-choudae delile (Moraceae)

The methanolic stem bark extract of Ficus vallis-choudae was investigated for anti-inflammatory and anti-nociceptive activity. The anti-inflammatory effects were investigated using rat paw edema model, while the analgesic effects were studied using acetic acid induced writhing in mice. The results obtained revealed that the methanolic stem bark extract of F. vallis – choudae  in doses...
