Antinociceptive and anti-inflammatory properties of Vernonia pauciflora Willd. (Asteraceae) Ethanol Extracts

Analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties of Vernonia pauciflora crude ethanol extract were studied in order to verify the antinociceptive and anti-inflammatory effect. The preliminary phytochemical screening of the leaf extract revealed that it contained cyanogenetic glycosides, flavonoids, terpenes with no trace of alkaloids. The analgesic screening of the extract against acetic acid-induced writhing in mice showed...
