Gastroprotective and ulcer-healing mechanisms of ellagic acid in experimental rats.
Oral administration of EA significantly prevented the gastric ulceration caused by ethanol, indomethacin, and acetic acid treatments and suggest that ellagic acid exerts its antiulcer activity by strengthening the defensive factors and attenuating the offensive factors.
Evaluation of the antifungal activity and mode of action of Lafoensia pacari A. St.-Hil., Lythraceae, stem-bark extracts, fractions and ellagic acid
Results indicate that ellagic acid might be the main active antifungal compound of Lafoensia pacari and suggest that the mode of antif fungus action of these extracts and ellagic Acid could be associated with the inhibition of fungal cell wall.
Anti-inflammatory, antinociceptive, and antipyretic effects of methanol extract of Cariniana rubra stem bark in animal models.
The traditional use of Cariniana rubra preparations to treat inflammation is supported, as it can be presumed that EM Cr caused their effects by inhibiting the liberation and/or action of different inflammatory mediators.
