The hot plate test results for NSAIDs in the presence of ruthenium red (3 mg/kg) and XE 991 (1 mg/kg) are presented as MPE% in Figures 1 and 2.
CTRL: Control; RR + CTRL: Ruthenium red + control; DIP: Dipyrone; RR + DIP: Ruthenium red + D ipyrone; ETO: Etodolac; RR + ETO : Ruthenium red + Etodolac; DIC: Diclofenac; RR + DIC: Ruthenium red + Diclofenac; KET Ke-toprofen; RR + KET: Ruthenium red + Ketoprofen of NSAID with XE 991 + NSAID: #p<0.05.
When the effects of NSAIDs in the presence of ruthenium red were examined, a significant reversal in the analgesic effects of dipyrone, etodolac, and ketoprofen was observed (p<0.01, p<0.001, and p<0.05, respectively; Fig.
No reversal was found in their analgesic effects in the presence of either ruthenium red or XE 991 (Fig.
