Thirty-five Wistar rats were divided into 7 groups, each group consisted 5 rats. In the control and treatment groups, aquadest (negative control), fenilbutazon (positive control), skunkvine extracts in dose 10mg/kgBW, 20mg/kgBW 30mg/kgBW, 40mg/kgBW, and 50mg/kgBW were administered per orally. In order to induce the edema, one hour after administration, in each group, right hind paw of the rats was injected subcutaneously with by 1% carrageenin.
