Abstract

The aqueous extract from the roots of Rumex patientia L. (Polygonaceae) was investigated for its analgesic and antipyretic effects on mice and rabbits. When the activities of the extract were evaluated in comparison with acetylsalicylic acid (ASA), indomethacin and morphin, it was found to possess significant analgesic and antipyretic activities.
