Abstract:

Regarding to some pharmacological effects of Echinacea and Artemisia, the aim of present study was comparison their potential antitussive effect. Four groups of mice were used and received normal saline, dextromethorphan, Echinacea extract and Artemisia extract respectively before cough induction. Cough was induced in a 1000 mL special glass chamber with ammonium hydroxide (1 mL of 5% solution) cotton ball. The numbers of cough were counted when mouse was kept for 2 min into the chamber and 5 min out of it. The mean of cough was significantly decreased by dextromethorphan, Echinacea extract and Artemisia extract. But there was no difference between effects of these agents statistically.
