dc.description.abstractThe aim of the present study was to investigate the role of phosphodiesterase (PDE) enzyme inhibitors namely rolipram and theophylline in pain and inflammation in experimental animals. Rolipram, a selective PDE IV inhibitor and theophylline a nonspecific PDE inhibitor exerted dose dependent analgesic and anti-inflammatory effect against acetic acid-induced writhing in mice and carrageenan-induced paw edema in rats, respectively. Nimesulide (1,2 mg/ kg) produced-significant anti-inflammatory effect. Further, nimesulide (0.5 mg/kg) potentiated analgesic effect of rolipram but it failed to modulate the anti-inflammatory effect of PDE inhibitors. Present study suggests that PDE enzymes might be playing a role in nociceptive and inflammatory responses in animals.en_US
