Abstract

Essential oil of Pistacia lentiscus L. inhibits carrageenan-induced inflammation in rats. Orhan et al. have reported that a-pinene is responsible for the antinflammatory activity. In the present study we report inhibitory effect of P. lentiscus essential oil in cotton pellet-induced granuloma and reduction in serum level of interleukin-6 (IL-6) and tumor necrosis factor-a (TNF-a)
