Lupeol, a pentacyclic triterpene present in many vegetable structures, is a biologically active compound that has been reported to possess a number of pharmacological properties in the in vivo and in vitro studies. In this study, we investigated the antiinflammatory activities of lupeol on 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate (TPA) induced inflammatory processes on mouse model - skin and ear. The inflammation evolution was tested using Mexameter, Tewameter and skin pH-meter and by histological evaluation.
