These results indicate that CE and F80 showed analgesic action in addition to anti-inflammatory activity.

Dipyrone potentiates morphine-induced antinociception in dipyrone-treated and morphine-tolerant rats. This libidkbia to be common in this genus since Caesalpinia sappan [ 18 ] and Caesalpinia echinata [ 19 ] also have linoleic acid as their main fatty acid component with Fetrea, our results show that atropine, given systemically, reversed the antinociceptive effect caused by LPLF, suggesting that antinociception detected for this compound depends, in part, on the cholinergic system.

Retrieved 20 June Table 1 Evaluation of anti-inflammatory activity of standard drugs dexamethasone, piroxicam and indomethacinCE, and F80 on carrageenan-induced peritonitis in pretreated mice. Malignant tumor cells sarcoma from donor animals with 8 days of implanting were used. Additionally, the search for ferrrea drugs that effectively interfere with the inflammatory process and pain is currently of great relevance; plants traditionally used as well as their derivative substances have historically been valued as a source of anti-inflammatory agents and pain libixibia [ 2122 ].

GC with flame ion detection FID. Abstract Libidibia ferrea LF is a medicinal plant that holds many pharmacological properties.

libdibia Anticancer, pain relief, and anti-inflammatory drugs with weak adverse effects are some of the most important goals in modern research; natural products, especially plant-derivative substances, play a role in this search for an ideal treatment.


Antinociceptive effect of standard drugs piroxicam and dipyroneCE, and F80 on acetic acid-induced writhing response test in mice.

Libidibia ferrea – Wikipedia

View at Google Scholar J. Antitumor activity and ligidibia status of Caesalpinia bonducella against ehrlich ascites carcinoma in Swiss albino mice. Indexed in Science Citation Index Expanded. Libidibia ferrea has been used in folk medicine throughout Brazil, and this study evaluated the biological activities of crude libidkbia CE as well as a partially purified fraction F80 obtained from its pods.

The allergen is R -3,4-dimethoxydalbergion, a strong skin sensitizer. In addition, antinociceptive agents, such as morphine, increase spinal release of ACh and endogenous ACh is an important mediator of the morphine analgesic effect.

Libidibia ferrea

Anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antipyretic effects of methanol extract from Bauhinia racemosa stem bark in animal models. Using the acetic acid-induced writhing response, which is the visceral pain model, the analgesic mechanism of abdominal writhing involves different nociceptive mechanisms, such as the process or release of arachidonic acid metabolites via cyclooxygenase and prostaglandin biosynthesis, opioid mechanisms, local peritoneal receptors and mediators related to acetylcholine and histamine, and sympathetic system mediators [ 353940 ].

Tumor inhibition was expressed as the mean of tumor weight for the treated animal group T in comparison to the untreated control group C.

Histochemical tests were carried out using free-hand sections of newly collected material and included the Sudan IV test for lipids, Osmium tetroxide test for unsaturated lipids, and Nile blue sulphate test to neutral and acids lipids. Antinociception induced by PAG-microinjected dipyrone metamizol in rats: This, however, has not prevented furniture factories from using the product.

Points of coupling of different tetrazolium salts. Aguiar2 S. These data indicate that the LPLF might act on both opioid and cholinergic pathways. Analgesic Activity—Acetic Acid-Induced Writhing Response There are different routes to evaluate nociception; however, the assay using intraperitoneally acetic acid was the chosen approach. Most species of Caesalpinia s. The Brazilian guitar maker Giannini uses the wood laminated in many of its classical guitars.


Shaik Mossadeq et al. Abstract Libidibia ferrea has been used in folk medicine throughout Brazil, and this study evaluated the biological activities of crude extract CE as well as a partially purified fraction F80 obtained from its pods.

Several previous studies have demonstrated that plant extracts and derivative compounds have an anticancer potential in vitro or in vivo.

The tonal characteristics are said to be between rosewood and ebony, with a slightly “snappier” sound, being “Slightly brighter than Rosewood but with the same depth and warmth”. The lipid portion of the Libidibia ferrea acetonic extract presented antinociceptive properties that are affected by inhibition of COX-2 and on cholinergic and opioid pathways.

Assays revealed that the extract reduced the edema formation significantly from the first moments. In guitar making, pau ferro is not only used for fingerboards or bridges but also can be used for the back and sides of the acoustic guitar. It penetrates easily into damaged cells staining them blue, while the intact ones remain colorless, ligidibia determination of living and dead cell percentages.

So Histochemical tests of the seed were performed to identify its components.
