Evaluation of Anti-Inflammatory Effect of Cinnamaldehyde – an in vitro Study
Akila M, Dayana J, Parameswari CS*
The present study was conducted to evaluate the anti-inflammatory effect of Cinnamaldehyde (CM) compound isolated from Cinnamomum tamala, against the denaturation of protein in vitro. The test compound was incubated with egg albumin at different concentrations to study its anti-inflammatory nature. Acetaminophen was used as reference standard drug. Present study narrated the Concentration dependent inhibition of protein denaturation by CM. The current study can thus be summarized as, CM possess marked anti-inflammatory effect against in-vitro protein denaturation. This effect plausibly accounts to the total anti-inflammatory nature of the plant in addition to valid contribution of flavor and odour and can be used for various other curative ailments.
