Abstract An aqueous extract of the dried leaves of Gongronema latifolium was studied for its antiinflammatory activity. The extract significantly (p < 0.05) inhibited carrageenan-induced rat paw oedema, carrageen-induced leucocyte migration in rats and dye leakage induced by intraperitoneal injection of acetic acid in mice. These results demonstrate the antiinflammatory property of G. latifolium. Copyright 2002 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
