Rosmarinic acid-4-O-β-D-glucoside (RAG) is a dicaffeoyl phenolic compound isolated from Sarcandra glabra (Thunb.) Nakai. Preliminary studies show that RAG has significant anti-inflammatory properties and can alleviate ear swelling in mice and the paw swelling in rats. Here, the anti-influenza
In Mexico Agave angustifolia has traditionally been used to treat inflammation. The aim of this study was to measure the anti-inflammatory effect of the extract of A. angustifolia, the isolation and identification of active compounds. From the acetone extract two active fractions were obtained,
To analyze the effect of different levels of positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) on extravascular lung water and on lymphatic drainage through the thoracic duct during hydrostatic pulmonary edema.
Randomized, controlled, experimental study.

Polygonum multiflorum Thunb. is a traditional herbal medicine that is rich in polyphenols. The major compound, 2,3,5,4'-tetrahydroxystilbene-2-O-β-d-glucoside (THSG) has many pharmacological activities, such as antioxidative and free radical-scavenging properties, and the abilities to reduce
Abnormal expression of pro-inflammatory mediators such as cell adhesion molecules and cytokines has been implicated in various inflammatory skin diseases, including atopic dermatitis. In this study, we investigated the anti-inflammatory activity of Aronia melanocarpa concentrate (AC) and its action
Our previous study found that the anti-hypoxia effect of Tibetan turnip (Brassica rapa ssp. rapa) is directly related to its p-Coumaric acid (CA) and glucoside (pCoumaric acid-beta-d-glucopyranoside, CAG) contents. The present study aimed to investigate the role and mechanism of CA against hypoxic
The study aimed to investigate the mechanism of hepatoprotective effect of C-21 steroidal glucosides from Cynanchum auriculatum( Baishouwu) on oxidative stress in mice with liver injury. Mice were randomly divided into normal group,model group,positive control group,Baishouwu high group and
There have been several studies of nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB) and high-mobility group box1 (HMGB1) associated with the pathophysiology of cerebral ischemia. Tricin 7-glucoside, a major bioactive compound extracted from Sedum sarmentosum Bunge. The objectives of this study were to determine the
Two seco-eremophiladiolides, velatumolide and epi-velatumolide, the trihydroxyfuranoeremophilane velatumin, and three eremophilane glucosides were isolated from Pittocaulon velatum, together with several known compounds. The structures of these compounds were elucidated by spectroscopic analysis and
Colchicine and N-desacetyl-N-methylcolchicine suppressed both the reversed passive Arthus reaction and the carrageenan-induced edema in the rat. Colchicine, 2-desmethyl-colchicine glucoside and trimethylcolchicine acid had no effect on either model of inflammation. The ability or inability of these
The ethyl acetate, chloroform extracts, and the two flavonoids kaempferol 1 and kaempferol-3-O-glucoside 2 isolated from whole plants of Thesium chinense Turcz were investigated for their antiinflammatory and analgesic activities. For the antiinflammatory activity, carrageenan-induced hind paw edema
Spinal cord injury (SCI) is a severe traumatic lesion of central nervous system (CNS) with only a limited number of restorative therapeutic options. Diosgenin glucoside (DG), a major bioactive ingredient of Trillium tschonoskii Max., possesses neuroprotective effects through its antioxidant and
Background:Melothria heterophylla (family: Cucurbitaceae), commonly known as kudari, is used in the Indian traditional medicine to treat various inflammation-associated diseases, such as asthma, arthritis and pain. However, the anti-inflammatory active components of this plant have not
