Abstract:

α-phellandrene antiedematogenic effect (α-Phel) was evaluated in carrageenan, histamine, prostaglandin and substance P induced paw edema and croton oil, TPA and arachidonic acid induced ear edemain mice. Experimental protocols were approved by Ethical Committee for Animal Experimentation (CEEA/UFPI, Protocol Nº 010/2011). α-Phel (100 and 200 mg.kg-1, p.o.) reduced carrageenan and prostaglandina (40.97 % and 61.41 %, respectively) induced paw edema, in doses 50, 100 e 200 mg.kg-1, p.o. reduced histamina induced paw edema formation (31.27 %; 45.14 % e 47.29 %, respectively); on substance P induced paw edema the inhibition occurred when the animal were treated with 200 mg.kg-1 of α-Phel, p.o. (44.05 %).When administered topically, α-Phel (0.2 e 0.4 mg/ear) reduced croton oil (57.34 % e 62.42 %, respectively), TPA (48.29 % e 62.10 %, respectively)and arachidonic acid(0.4 mg/ear) induced ear edema (29.55 %).α-Phelpresents antiedematogenic activity in acute inflammation models.

Keywords: Monoterpene, α-Phellandrene, anti-inflammatory activity, edema.
