An Assessment of Analgesic & Anti-inflammatory Activity Spondias mombin and Mapping of Variation of Potency under the Light Geographical Contrast Based Phenomenon
Asian Journal of Advanced Research and Reports, Volume 17, Issue 2,
Because of the short comings of conventional anti-inflammatory drugs, the researchers have driven their attention towards natural products. Medicinal plants have got acknowledged for greatly impacting on the health of individuals and communities. Spondias mombin is a great species, traditionally used for several medicative objectives from ancient times. It has also been popular for it’s analgesic and anti-inflammatory effect. In this study, we an effort was made to evaluate the analgesic and anti-inflammatory effect of Spondias mombin against the conventional drugs. the plant extract from different region was induced through intraperitoneal route and the efficiency was compared with paracetamol and ibuprofen. It was seen that both the conventional drug and extract of Spondias mombin significantly reduce the inflammation. The plant extract has also shown effects irrespective of geographical interest. Hence it might be assumed that Spondias mombin could be a suitable alternative therapy in reducing pain and inflammation and to surpass the side effects of ordinary conventional medicines.
