Abstract The non-steroidal antiinflamatory agent indomethacin is widely used in the scope of modem surgical practice, where it is known to exert an effect on the inflammatory process. This research aimed to quantify this action using the rat as an experimental model, with the subsequent application of statistical analysis to the results. Both the acute and chronic inflammatory processes were studied. The research showed that the drug indomethacin reduced the development of caraagheenin induced acute inflammation in the rat's paw edema (51 %), and pleurisy fluid (50 %) and cells (58 %). It also reduced chronic inflammation induced via the implantation of cotton pellets into the ra t abdominal wall (64 %). At the celular level, indomethacin was shown to inhibit the growth of foreign body inactive granuloma neutrophils (28 %), macrophages (55 %), fibroblasts (66 %) and the number of collagen fibers (75 %) formed by the presence of a prolypropylene thread at the site of the inflammation. In conclusion, in this study it could be ascertained that the indomethacin was shown to exert a significant inhibitory effect over the inflammatory process as a whole.
