  • Inhibition of pro-inflammatory enzymes by medicinal plants from the Argentinean highlands (Puna). [Journal Article]
  • JEJ Ethnopharmacol 2017 Apr 19
  • Torres-Carro R, Inés Isla M, … Rosa Alberto M
  • CONCLUSIONS: Six out of the 13 species investigated showed a moderate to strong effect towards the enzyme sPLA2 (>40% inhibition at 200µg/mL) while three species presented strong activity against LOX with IC50< 250µg/mL and three were very active against hyaluronidase. Most of the crude drug extracts were able to stabilize the red blood cells membrane preventing their lysis. The compounds identified in the extracts can explain, at least in part, the activity found in the samples. The effect observed for the most active species support their traditional use as anti-inflammatory agents. However, more studies should be undertaken to disclose the potential of the Puna plants as anti-inflammatory crude drugs.
  • Glechoma hederacea extracts attenuate cholestatic liver injury in a bile duct-ligated rat model. [Journal Article]
  • JEJ Ethnopharmacol 2017 Apr 14
  • Wang YY, Lin SY, … Chen CJ
  • CONCLUSIONS: The hepatoprotective, anti-oxidative, anti-inflammatory, and anti-fibrotic effects of Glechoma hederacea extracts seem to be multifactorial. The beneficial effects of daily Glechoma hederacea extracts supplementation were associated with anti-oxidative, anti-inflammatory, and anti-fibrotic potential, as well as down-regulation of NF-κB, AP-1, and TGF-β/Smad signaling, probably via interference with the HMGB1/TLR4 axis.
  • Medicinal plant uses and names from the herbarium of Francesc Bolòs (1773-1844). [Journal Article]
  • JEJ Ethnopharmacol 2017 Apr 12
  • Gras A, Garnatje T, … Vallè J
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our analyses indicate a certain degree of consistency between the medicinal uses of plants recorded in this 18(th) and 19(th) century herbarium and the records found in the literature and in recent ethnobotanical datasets, accounting for the robustness of pharmaceutical ethnobotanical knowledge in the area considered. Data appearing on the specimen labels are numerous, pointing out the herbarium as a relevant source of ethnopharmacological information. Special attention should be paid to some original uses contained in the herbarium's labels for further investigation on plant properties and drug design.
