Abstract


Methanolic extract of leaves and soft stems of Erythrina variegata (EVLSS) was investigated for analgesic activity at the doses of 50, 100, 200 and 400 mg/kg body weight orally. All the doses of EVLSS significantly attenuated the writhing responses induced by intraperitoneal injection of acetic acid in mice.
