The results of the present study demonstrated, for the first time, that systemic (oral) administration of hydroalcoholic extract of Polygala molluginifolia (HEPm) and an isoflavone (ISO) isolated from this extract elicits a potent dose-dependent inhibition of the nociceptive behavioral response in animal models of pain without causing sedation or locomotor dysfunction.
We evidenced the potential of HEPm in inhibiting mechanical and thermal hyperalgesia (heat and cold) in postoperative pain in mice, without causing sedation or locomotor dysfunction.
