In the topical model of ear mice edema, the extract was active at 1000 [micro]g/ear against all the phlogogen agents tested (croton oil, PMA and arachidonic acid), whereas taraxasteryl acetate (Table 3) had the same level of activity at 46 [micro]g/ear (100 [micro]mol/ear), which is a 1/20 of the dose of the extract.
