Figure 1: Inhibitory effect of Thymelaea hirsuta (TH) extracts on the paw diameter in complete Freund's Adjuvant (CFA)-induced arthritis. Experimental arthritis was induced in the left footpad of each rat by a s.c. injection of with 0.2 mL of CFA. Rats in the test groups were treated with the extract of TH (500 mg/kg body weight p.o.) every day for 21 days after the CFA challenge. The control group received normal saline (3 ml/kg body weight p.o.), while the third group received the diclofenac (10 mg/kg body weight p.o). Values are expressed as mean ± standard error of the mean of three experiments (n = 6) (*P < 0.01)
