AIM: To find the anti-inflammatory and anti-platelet aggregatory activity of human placental extract (HPE, Placentrex).
METHODS: The HPE was studied for anti-inflammatory effect in Wistar rats on carrageenin, serotonin (5-HT),
and prostaglandin E (PGE ) induced edema in acute model and cotton pellet induced granuloma on sub-acute
model. Anti-platelet aggregation was studied against pr otection of adinosine diphosphate (ADP)-induced aggrega-
tion of human platelet through in vitro study. RESULTS: HPE showed positive results both in acute and sub-acute
models of inflammation. Highly significant (P<0.01) results were obtained against 5-HT induced acute inflamma-
tion and cotton pellet induced sub-acute inflammation in comparison with standard (diclofenac sodium) and control
(normal saline) drugs. The anti-inflammatory property of HPE in animal model was well supported with clinical
study of platelet aggregation. There was highly significant (P<0.01) inhibition of platelet aggregation with HPE at
diff erent doses against ADP. CONCLUSION: Our data suggest that human placental extract may be useful in
suppressing inflammation and platelet aggregation.

Hence, HPE was fur ther studied against paw edema Treatment groups and dose Platelet aggregation induced by individual agent like 5- HT or PGE .
5-HT is present in mast cells and is consider ably more potent than histamine in increasing vascular permeabil- ity in r ats[16]. As ther e was considerable r eduction (49.0 %) of inflammation in 5-HT pre-treated r ats by application of HPE, it might be conjectured that the in- hibitory action was 5- HT mediated. Pr ostaglandins (PGs) biosynthetic pathway or the cyclooxygenase (COX) activity of the enzyme is the site of action of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or NSAIDS[17,18].
Diclof enac sodium is a widely used potent NSAI DS with pronounced analgesic and anti-pyretic activity. It is used mainly for long term symptomatic treatment ofrheumatoid arthr itis, osteoarthritis, and ankylosing spondylitis[19,20]. Therefore, diclofenac sodium was se- lected in this study as positive control (Tab 1, 2). Henceit may be assumed that HPE exhibits their anti-inflam- matory responses either through inhibition/inactivation of chemical mediators or by dir ectly modulating PGproduction by suppression of COX. It has been recog- nized recently that mammalian cells explain two forms of COX activity. COX-1 is the major form present inplatelets, while COX-2 is only found in elevated levels in inflammatory exudates[20,21]. The action of HPE on Fig 1.
