Agents Actions. 1986 Jan;17(3-4):383-4.  Anti-inflammatory activity of some Saudi Arabian medicinal plants. Ageel AM, Parmar NS, Mossa JS, Al-Yahya MA, Al-Said MS, Tariq M.

Five plants which have been used for the treatment of rheumatism, arthritis and gout in the traditional medicine of Saudi Arabia, were evaluated for their anti-inflammatory properties. Of these the ethanolic extract of Capparis decidua and the aqueous extract of Capparis spinosa were found to possess significant anti-inflammatory activity against carrageenan induced oedema in rats. These two plants were also tested for their antipyretic and analgesic activity. C. decidua was found to possess significant antipyretic effect. Both of them are devoid of analgesic activity.
