Abstract

Objective: The effect of petroleum ether extract of Bauhinia racemosa was investigated in rats and mice to evaluate the analgesic activity. Materials and Methods: Acetic acid induced writhing model and hot plate method were employed to test the analgesic activity. Results: The results indicated that the petroleum ether extract had no significant analgesic activity. Conclusion: It may be inferred that Bauhinia racemosa do not have analgesic activity and the results are not in agreement with its traditional use.
