The influence of domestic papain to the course of experimental inflammation due to formalin, dextrane, histamine, serotonin and infectious arthritis has been studied. The domestic papain in doses of 0.325 and 0.75 mg/kg possesses strongly marked antiinflammatory activity and this ability is no less than that of butadion and indomethacin.
