The effect of weilingxian(Clematis Chinensis Osbeck) on biliary secretion and local inflammation in rats,and of the relieb of pain and the promotion of intestinal peristalsis in mice were studied. The results showed that weilingxian could significantly increased the biliary secretion by oral administration of its decoction once or several times respectively,and it could effectively ameliorate the edema of toes induced by injection of egg albumin,to thus show it nonspecific anti-inflammatory action. Weilingxian exhibited an analgesia action by preventing mice from making body torsion reaction caused by acetic acid,and it also could promote intestinal peristalsis in mice.
