Evaluation of anti-inflammatory property of curcumin (diferuloyl methane) in patients with postoperative inflammation.
Int J Clin Pharmacol Ther Toxicol. 1986 Dec;24(12):651-4. PMID: 3546166
A new model for evaluating nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) is described. In this model of postoperative inflammation, the anti-inflammatory activity of curcumin (diferuloyl methane) was investigated in comparison with phenylbutazone and placebo. Phenylbutazone and curcumin produced a better anti-inflammatory response than placebo.
