Figure 4: Effect of Nasturtium officinale extracts on IL-1β levels in the carrageenan-injected paws. Animals received the extract of N. officinale (250, 500, and 750 mg/kg, p.o.) and indomethacin (10 mg/kg) 45 min prior to subplantar injection of carrageenan. Four h after carrageenan injection, the paw was homogenized and IL-1β levels in the supernatant were determined by ELISA. Data is expressed as mean ± SEM of five to six rats. *P < 0. 05, and ***P < 0.001 indicate significant differences compared to the carrageenan-treated group and ###P < 0.001 versus saline group. IL-1β, Interleukin-1 beta.
