This study was planned to investigate possible antinociceptive activity of 1,5-diaryl-3-[4-(methylsulfonyl) phenyl]-4,5-dihydro-1H-pyrazole derivatives (2a-s), based on the analgesia-inducing potential of 4,5-dihydro-1H-pyrazole moiety carrying compounds. Tail-clip and hot-plate tests, measuring centrally organized responses to a noxious stimulus, were performed in order to examine antinociceptive potential of the test compounds (100 mg/kg, i.p). In addition, peripherally mediated antinociceptive effect was evaluated by acetic acid-induced writhing tests. Motor coordination of the animals was tested in a Rota-rod apparatus.
