Medications for the treatment of pain and inflammatory disorders, although
effective, their chronic use and/or misuse can lead to serious side effects. In this regard,
naturally-derived antinociceptive and anti-inflammatory agents have emerged as
alternatives to synthetically marketed drugs. The current review covers all the
nutraceuticals and phytochemicals – derived from medicinal plants– which have been
reported to possess analgesic and/or anti-inflammatory effects over the period between
2018 up to June 2020.

Keywords: Pain, Inflammation, Marine organisms, Medicinal plants, Natural products.
