Pain is the common indicator of inflammatory ailments and traumatic tissue injuries. The dieckol is an important therapeutic compound, which present in many seaweeds. The present research work was planned to assess the anti-inflammatory and anti-nociceptive actions of dieckol by using animal model. The anti-nociceptive action of dieckol was investigated by acetic acid triggered writhing, formalin provoked nociception, tail immersion test, hot-plate methods and the anti-inflammatory effects was explored by carrageenan triggered paw edema method. In the present investigation the administration of dieckol was remarkably suppressed and inhibited the acetic acid-provoked writhing, formalin-triggered nociception, tail immersion test, hot plate-provoked nociception in the experimental animals. The dieckol was significantly (p < 0.05) inhibited the carrageenan-triggered inflammation, leukocyte infiltration and diminished the formation of pro-inflammatory regulators in the experimental animals. Altogether, the dieckol was showed a potent anti-nociceptive and anti-inflammatory activity.
