Andrographolide prevents oxygen radical production by human neutrophils: possible mechanism(s) involved in its anti‐inflammatory effect
We have reported that andrographolide (ANDRO), an active component of Andrographis paniculata, inhibits inflammatory responses by rat neutrophils. To further elucidate the possible mechanism(s)Expand

The anti-inflammatory effect of honokiol on neutrophils: mechanisms in the inhibition of reactive oxygen species production.
Reactive oxygen species produced by neutrophils contribute to the pathogenesis of focal cerebral ischemia/reperfusion injury and signal the inflammatory response. We have previously shown thatExpand

Honokiol protects rat brain from focal cerebral ischemia–reperfusion injury by inhibiting neutrophil infiltration and reactive oxygen species production
We have previously shown that honokiol, an active component of Magnolia officinalis, displayed protective effect against focal cerebral ischemia-reperfusion (FCI/R) injury in rats. Production ofExpand

Tyrosine kinase inhibitors, emodin and its derivative repress HER-2/neu-induced cellular transformation and metastasis-associated properties
We have previously shown that emodin suppresses tyrosine kinase activity of HER-2/neu-encoded p185neu receptor tyrosine kinase. In this study, we examine the relationship between the chemicalExpand

Falcarindiol impairs the expression of inducible nitric oxide synthase by abrogating the activation of IKK and JAK in rat primary astrocytes
1 The effects of falcarindiol on the expression of inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) induced by lipopolysaccharide/interferon‐γ (LPS/IFN‐γ) in rat primary astrocytes were investigated. TheExpand
