Sulfated-polysaccharide isolated from the red-marine-algae Champia feldmannii was purified by ion exchange chromatography and tested in experimental protocols of coagulation, inflammation and nociception, suggesting that this molecule may be an important immunostimulant.
Purification and biological effects of Araucaria angustifolia (Araucariaceae) seed lectin.
Polysaccharide fractions of Caesalpinia ferrea pods: potential anti-inflammatory usage.
Purified polysaccharides of Geoffroea spinosa barks have anticoagulant and antithrombotic activities devoid of hemorrhagic risks.
Gastrointestinal dysmotility in 5-fluorouracil-induced intestinal mucositis outlasts inflammatory process resolution
5-FU-induced gastrointestinal dysmotility outlasts intestinal mucositis and a complete reversion of all parameters was observed.

Intravenous injection of AaL dose-dependently inhibited the dextran-induced increase in edema and vascular permeability and exerts anti-and pro-edematogenic actions via interaction with its specific lectin domain, suggesting these actions may share a common pathway involving either activation or inhibition of inflammatory mediators from resident mast cells.
In vivo anti-inflammatory effect of a sulfated polysaccharide isolated from the marine brown algae Lobophora variegata
The anti-edematogenic effect of SP-Lv seems to occur via inhibition of nitric oxide synthase and cyclooxygenase activities, suggesting a potential applicability of polysaccharides from alga origin in acute inflammatory conditions.
