Ethnopharmacological relevance: Capparis ovata Desf. and Capparis spinosa L have wide natural distribution in Turkey and they are consumed in pickled form. Flower buds, root bark, and fruits of the plant are used in folk medicine due to their analgesic, wound healing, cell regeneration, tonic, and diuretic effects. Aim of the study: In this study, we attempted to identify the possible antinociceptive action of methanol extract prepared from fruits of Capparis ovata.
