ABSTRACT:
Abutilon indicum Linn (Sweet) (Malvaceae) leaves were extracted with water and evaluated for its antinociceptive effects by employing various models such as acetic acid-induced writhing test, tail immersion test, hotplate method and formalin-induced nociceptive test. The extract at 200 and 400 mg / kg concentration significantly (p<0.01) reduced the number of writhes produced by acetic acid (0.6 %) and significantly increased the reaction time in thermal models such as hot water tail immersion, hot plate method and formalin-induced test in a dose dependent manner (p<0.01). Morphine (7.5 mg / kg) and Indomethacin (10 mg /kg) were employed as the standard drugs for comparison. The results of the present study revealed that the aqueous extract of leaves of Abutilon indicum exhibits a potential analgesic effect, which may be mediated by both central and peripheral mechanisms.
