The antiinflammatory activity of three hydrosoluble aryldimethyltriazenes has been examined on the carrageenin induced edema in guinea pig.

The antiinflammatory activity of DM-COOK is comparable with that caused by 5 mg/kg indomethacin and 200 mg/kg phenylbutazone. However, DM-COOK, unlike indomethacin, causes an inhibition of leukocyte migration into the peritoneal cavity induced by casein treatment, thus indicating a different mechanism of action.

Abstract

The antiinflammatory activity of three hydrosoluble aryldimethyltriazenes has been examined on the carrageenin induced edema in guinea pig. The administration of equitoxic dosages of p-(3,3-dimethyl-1-triazeno)benzoic acid potassium salt (DM-COOK) and p-(3,3-dimethyl-1-triazeno)sulfonic acid sodium salt (DM-SO3Na) 1 h after carrageenin application, causes 4 h later a similar and statistically significant reduction of paw swelling by about 40% whereas, p-alanylphenyl-3,3-dimethyl-1-triazeno (DM-ALA(OH)) is inactive. Of the two active compounds, DM-COOK displays interesting properties, being rapidly active and causing a peak of inhibition higher than that caused by DM-SO3Na. The antiinflammatory activity of DM-COOK is comparable with that caused by 5 mg/kg indomethacin and 200 mg/kg phenylbutazone. However, DM-COOK, unlike indomethacin, causes an inhibition of leukocyte migration into the peritoneal cavity induced by casein treatment, thus indicating a different mechanism of action. This effect needs clarification and seems not to be correlated to cytotoxicity of the drug for migrating white blood cells, as evidenced by 'in vitro' examination.
