Abstract: 

Background: The fruit of date palm (Pelmaceae family) has been applied in plant medicine. In this study we investigate the analgesic effects of chronic of aqueous extract of Date palm (Pelmaceae family) in rat.
Methods: fifty two male NMRI rats (250±25) have been used. Animals divided into the two groups as follow: control and experimental group. The experimental group was fed with aqueous extract of palm date (10%) for 21 days. Diet of Control group hasn't change. Then Formalin, Tail flick and paw pressure tests were applied for comparing the two groups.
Results: Results have been showed in chronic phase (between 20-30 min) of formalin test was significant difference between two groups in regard to pain decrease, but in acute phase of formalin test, tail flick and paw pressure tests was no significant.
Conclusion: In this results suggests since Date palm has shown analgesic effects in chronic phase a but has no effect in acute phase of formalin test and tail flick too, it can be concluded that extract has no central analgesic effect. As the chronic phase of formalin has been known as inflammatory phase, Date palm might have the anti inflammatory effect of in decreasing the pain.
