From: Antidepressant-like effects of the aqueous macerate of the bulb of Gladiolus dalenii Van Geel (Iridaceae) in a rat model of epilepsy-associated depression

Treatments Doses (mg/kg) Crossing Rearing Time spent in the center (s)
Saline - 30.8 ± 7.86 3.4 ± 1.06 5.6 ± 0.93
GD 15 11 ± 2.33 ** 1 ± 0.66 * 6.2 ± 0.86
Fluoxetine 15 33.2 ± 4.46 2.8 ± 0.53 5.2 ± 1.2
  1. Saline, G. dalenii, and fluoxetine were administrated every day for seven days. Rats were treated with saline, G. dalenii and fluoxetine every day for seven days. The value represent means ± SEM (n = 5 rats per group). *p < 0.05; **p < 0.01 compare to the control group (one way ANOVA followed by Newmann Keuls test).
  2. GD: G. dalenii: aqueous macerate of the bulb of Gladiolus dalenii.
