Antioxidant and Hepatoprotective Activity of Punicalagin and Punicalin on Carbon Tetrachloride‐induced Liver Damage in Rats
*Department of Pharmacy, Ta‐Jen Pharmaceutical College, Ping‐Tung
Antiviral activity of Plantago major extracts and related compounds in vitro.
Pure compounds of P. major, which possess antiviral activities are mainly derived from the phenolic compounds, especially caffeic acid, which was found to be at multiplication stages against HSV-2 and ADV-3, suggesting the potential use of this compound for treatment of the infection by these two viruses.

In vitro antiviral activities of Caesalpinia pulcherrima and its related flavonoids.
The mode of action of quercetin against HSV-1 and ADV-3 was found to be at the early stage of multiplication and with SI values greater than 20, suggesting the potential use of this compound for treatment of the infection caused by these two viruses. Expand
The anti-inflammatory activity of Scutellaria rivularis extracts and its active components, baicalin, baicalein and wogonin.
Five extracts of Scutellaria rivularis Benth were evaluated for their anti-inflammatory activity against carrageenan-induced paw edema in rats and chloroform extract proved to be the most effective in all of the extracts. Expand
Evaluation of the anti-inflammatory and liver-protective effects of anoectochilus formosanus, ganoderma lucidum and gynostemma pentaphyllum in rats.
The pharmacological effects of Anoectochilus formosanus, Ganoderma lucidum and Gynostemma pentaphyllum were studied against carrageenan-induced paw edema and CC1(4)-induced hepatotoxicity in rats to find anti-inflammatory activity found in these extracts even more potent than indomethacin. Expand
Anti-inflammatory effects of emodin from ventilago leiocarpa.
Emodin, a major component of the AcOEt and CHCl3 fractions from Ventilago leiocarpa Bunge (Rhamnaceae), was isolated. It exhibited apti-inflammatory effect on carrageenan-induced edema in rats.
Superoxide anion scavenging effect of coumarins.
It seems that two phenolic hydroxy groups in the ortho position in the molecule of coumarins play an important role in scavenging activity. Expand
Antimicrobial activity of honokiol and magnolol isolated from Magnolia officinalis
Honokiol and magnolol, although less potent than tetracycline, show a significant antimicrobial activity for periodontal pathogens and might have the potential to be an adjunct in the treatment of periodontitis. Expand
Anti-inflammatory effects of Taiwan folk medicine 'Teng-Khia-U' on carrageenan- and adjuvant-induced paw edema in rats.
Results indicated that pretreatment with 'Teng-Khia-U' significantly inhibited the carrageenan-induced acute arthritis and significantly suppressed the development of chronic arthritis induced by CFA. Expand
Antioxidant and free radical scavenging effects of the tannins of Terminalia catappa L.
Punicalagin and punicalin were the most abundant components and had the strongest anti-oxidative effects of this group of tannins, and showed potent antioxidant activity. Expand
