This study assesses the potential anti-inflammatory properties of extracts of Dodonaea viscosa, an indigenous plant species previously used in traditional medicine, as a topical anti-inflammatory product.
The publication provides information to enable the manufacture of a product that utilises locally grown raw material and encourages alternative crops of D. viscosa within the primary producing sector so that an innovative product for the complementary medicine sector can be produced.
