Anti-inflammatory activity of the aqueous and 95% ethyl alcohol-free extracts from the fresh leaves of Annona muricata linn. (Guyabano)


This study dealt with the anti-inflammatory activity of the aqueous and 95% ethyl alcohol-free extracts of the fresh leaves of Annona muricata L. (Guyabano). The plant sample used was the fresh leaves of guyabano. Decoction using distilled water and maceration using 95% ethyl alcohol were done. The extracts obtained was carrageenan-induced rat paw edema and the volume of edema was measured using a Plethysmometer. The test animal used were Sprague Dawley rats. Preliminary testing was done and it showed that the 1% carrageenan produced its peak of inflammation at 180 minutes after subcuntaneous injection. TSA (aqueous extract, 30 mg/mL)
