DETERMINATION OF ANTIOXIDANT ACTIVITY OF CROCUS SATIVUS IN ADJUVANT INDUCED ARTHRITIC MICE

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic systemic disease which results in pain, swelling and stiffness in joints. It affects about 1% of the total world’s population. RA begins with an edematous thickening of the synovia which latter converts into inflammatory synovium called pannus which erodes the surrounding cartilage. Conventional therapy exists to overcome illness but prolonged uses of drugs...
