  • The taste of heat: how humoral qualities act as a cultural filter for chemosensory properties guiding herbal medicine. [Journal Article]
  • JEJ Ethnopharmacol 2017 Jan 17
  • Geck MS, Cabras S, … Leonti M
  • CONCLUSIONS: The results reproduce and extend the findings of previous studies, which established specific correlations between chemosensory cues and nosological units. The key predictors of drugs' therapeutic uses, however, are their humoral qualities, which are themselves conditioned by taste and smell. These findings appear to be valid for drug samples known to the participants as well as for unfamiliar samples. Thus, this study establishes the role of the hot-cold dichotomy as an important cultural filter connecting organoleptic properties and therapeutic uses of herbal drugs.There is considerable cross-cultural consensus in Mesoamerica for the specific correlations described in this study. Given the continued pervasiveness of the hot-cold dichotomy, humoral qualities and the underlying organoleptic properties ought to be increasingly considered in the design of pharmaceutical products as well as public health strategies. Such culturally appropriate adjustments may considerably improve the perceived quality and effectiveness of healthcare.
  • Antitumoral activity of Sesquiterpene lactone diacethylpiptocarphol in mice. [Journal Article]
  • JEJ Ethnopharmacol 2017 Jan 15
  • Alezandre F, Ricardo S, … Regina Orofino KM
  • CONCLUSIONS: Sesquiterpene lactone DPC, isolated from Vernonia scorpioides showed antitumor activity because it decreased the size of the solid tumor and abolished the ascitic tumor development, and also did not affect the mice body weight, however the treatment reduced the TNF-α level in mice.
  • The influence of seasonality on the content of goyazensolide and on anti-inflammatory and anti-hyperuricemic effects of the ethanolic extract of Lychnophora passerina (Brazilian arnica). [Journal Article]
  • JEJ Ethnopharmacol 2017 Jan 12
  • de Albuquerque Ugoline BC, de Souza J, … Saúde-Guimarães DA
  • CONCLUSIONS: The anti-inflammatory and anti-hyperuricemic activities of the ethanolic extracts from L. passerina were not proportionally influenced by the variation of goyazensolide content throughout the seasons. The involvement of goyazensolide on in vivo anti-inflammatory and anti-hyperuricemic activities of L. passerina extracts was confirmed, as well as the possibility of participation of other constituents on these effects. This study demonstrated that the aerial parts of L. passerina may be collected in any season for use as anti-inflammatory agent. For use in hyperuricemia, the best seasons for the collection are summer, autumn and spring. The ethanolic extract of L. passerina and goyazensolide can be considered promising agents in the therapeutic of inflammation, hyperuricemia and gout.
