White female albino rats of 150 g average body weight were used to test the anti-inflammatory activity of the previously prepared successive extracts (petroleum ether, ether, chloroform, methanolic and 50% aqueous methanolic) and the volatile oils prepared from both Boswellia carteri and Commiphora myrrha oleo-gum-resins.
One group served as control, six groups designated (B) were used as test groups for Boswellia carteri extracts and six groups designated (C) were used as test groups for Commiphora myrrha extracts and the last group served as the control group and was not given any treatment.
Male and female albino mice of 21-25 g body weight were fed with progressively increasing oral doses (1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12 g/kg mice body weight) of each of the non-polar extract of Boswellia carteri and the chloroformic successive extract of Commiphora myrrha oleo-gum-resins for testing acute lethal toxicity.
All of the extracts Boswellia carteri oleo-gumresin showed inhibition of the induced inflammation with varying percentages although the potency tended to be in favor of the non-polar extracts.
GC/MS analysis of the unsaponifiable matter (USM) of Boswellia carteri and Commiphora myrrha oleo-gum-resins was carried out and the identification of the constituents was performed by comparison of the spectral fragmentation patterns with those of the available database libraries Wiley (Wiley Int.
