Possible involvement of eicosanoids in the pharmacological action of bromelain.
Arzneimittelforschung. 1986; 36(1):110-2.A

Abstract

Bromelain, a proteolytic enzyme extracted from pineapple plants, was investigated for its capacity to interfere with arachidonic acid metabolism, since prostaglandins and other eicosanoids are well-known to be involved in the pathogenesis of inflammatory diseases. Bromelain was tested for its ability to interfere with eicosanoids generation in vivo in two experimentally-induced inflammatory reactions in the rat. Also antiplatelet aggregation activity of bromelain was studied in ex vivo rat platelets. The results seem to indicate an interference of bromelain with arachidonic acid cascade, which, however, deserves further investigation to be better assessed.
