The effects of the n-hexane extract fraction from the seeds of Abroma augusta Linn.
(Sterculiaceae) were assessed for its analgesic activity in mice using acetic acid-induced
writhing, formalin and hot plate tests as the tested models. The extract at doses of 100, 200
and 400 mg/kg orally administered in all tests showed markedly significant antinociceptive
activity when compared to control or standard drug groups.
