Abstract: The hemolytic, anti-inflammatory and antinociceptive properties from hydrolyzed extract Agave sisalana Perrine ex Engelm., Asparagaceae (HEAS) was evaluated classic inflammation models. Male Swiss mice and male Wistars rats received HEAS (500 mg/kg) in two administration p.o. and i.p. in saline solution 0.9%. The acid hydrolysis inhibited the hemolytic action of saponins due to the retreat of side chain sugar. The treatment of the ear induced oedema by xylene with HEAS significantly reduced in two routes 13 +/- 1.5 and 10 +/- 0.63 mg, respectively, p.o. and i.p., in comparison with controls 27 1.5 saline and 13.5 +/- 1.2 AAS. The HEAS also diminished edema induced by carrageenin 43 +/- 1.58 mg (p.o.) and 17 +/- 1.26 mg (i.p.), when compared with control groups 52 +/- 1.58 mg (saline) and 10.05 +/- 1.58 (indomethacin). HEAS showed analgesic effects in abdominal constrictions 30.7% (p.o.), 88.7% (i.p.) comparable to that produced by (AAS) 70.6%. However in granuloma cotton pellet a chronic model of inflammation just the i.p. pathway decreased granulomatous tissue (20.4 +/- 1.32 mg) compared with controls 30.5 +/- 2.53 mg (saline) and 20.2 +/- 2.18 mg (dexamethasone). These data suggest that HEAS has anti-inflammatory and analgesic activity on acute and chronic processes.
