Inflammatory diseases are treated currently with steroidal and nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).
In the present study, we tested the possible antiinflammatory effects of the crude saponin extract (CSE) and the saponin's purified extracts (SPE) of Hedera helix in the carrageenan- and cotton-pellet-induced acute and chronic inflammation models in rats.
Antiinflammatory effects of CSE and SPE of Hedera helix were investigated in an aseptic arthritis model, which was induced by carrageenan and cotton-pellet-granuloma tests in subsequent doses.
The antiinflammatory activity in animals receiving Hedera helix extracts was compared with that in indomethacin and control groups.
Despite the fact that they have weaker antiinflammatory effects than indomethacin, both CSE and SPE of Hedera helix were found to have antiinflammatory effects.
For testing chronic antiinflammatory (antiproliferative) effects, the cotton-pellet-granuloma test was conducted.
