The aqueous extracts of Porophyllum tagetoides and Annona reticulata were investigated for its anti-inflammatory and analgesic activities in animal models. The extracts at 200 and 300 mg/kg reduced significantly the formation of edema induced by carrageenan. In the acetic acid-induced writhing model, the extract showed a good analgesic effect characterized by a significant reduction in the number of writhes with two doses (100 and 200 mg/kg) used when compared to the untreated control group. Indomethacin at 10 mg/kg served as reference drug in all these tests. Moreover, P. tagetoides and A. reticulata also remarkably suppressed carrageenan-induced peritoneal leukocyte migration in rats. These results demonstrate that P. tagetoides and A. reticulata present remarkable anti-inflammatory activity, which supported its traditional use in the treatment of various diseases associated with inflammation.
