Background. As a means of correcting the ulcerogenic effect of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, our attention was attracted by a cryopreserved extract of the human placenta, which has a multivector spectrum of biological activity. To date, there is no information about its effect on the specific activity of this class of medicines (anti-inflammatory, analgesic, etc.) in published sources.

Objective. We are aimed to characterize the effect of cryopreserved placenta extract on the anti-inflammatory activity of diclofenac sodium when administered separately in a model of acute exudative inflammation.

Methods. Experimental studies in vivo were conducted on 28 nonlinear male laboratory rats. The model of acute exudative inflammation was reproduced by subplantar injection of 0.1 ml of 1.0% aqueous solution of λ-karagenin into the right hind limb of rats. Cryopreserved placenta extract was administered intramuscularly at a dose of 0.16 ml/kg 60 minutes before diclofenac sodium (8 mg/kg).

Results. Preventive administration of diclofenac sodium caused an antiexudative effect as early as 30 minutes after administration of λ-karagenin – its anti-inflammatory activity was 11.0%, which is 4.6 times higher than similar indicators at the same time in rats injected with placental cryoextract. At 60 minutes of observation, diclofenac sodium was comparable in anti-inflammatory activity with cryopreserved placenta extract: 28.6% and 22.2%, respectively, but at 120 and 180 minutes, diclofenac sodium exceeded the studied cryoextract in antiphlogistic effect by 1.6 times in both periods of observation. The anti-inflammatory effect of the combined separate administration of placenta cryoextract and diclofenac sodium before λ-karagenin for 30 and 60 minutes was 12.7% and 32.3%, respectively, which is comparable with analogous indicators against the background of diclofenac sodium monotherapy. However, at 120 minutes of observation, the group of combined use of placenta cryoextract and diclofenac sodium showed the greatest anti-inflammatory effect among rats of all the studied groups – 52.6%, which was 2.2 times higher than the indicators of the placenta cryoextract monotherapy group and 1.4 times lower than the indicators of the rats of the diclofenac sodium monotherapy group.

Conclusions. 4 hours after administration, placental cryoextract had a suppressive effect on kinins like diclofenac sodium, and in the prostaglandin period of caragenin-induced inflammation against the background of combined use of the studied cryoextract and diclofenac sodium, the anti-inflammatory activity was 46.4 %. This suggests a suppressive effect on the production of prostaglandins as a possible mechanism of anti-exudative action of cryopreserved placenta extract.
