A review of the pharmacology and toxicology of Astragalus
TLDR
Many species are used in folk medicine for their hepatoprotective, antioxidative, immunostimulant, and antiviral properties, whereas others are toxic, and in many cases the toxic principles can pass to humans through milk and meat.
Structural considerations on the iridoids as anti-inflammatory agents.
TLDR
The results allowed us to establish the relationship between the structure and anti-inflammatory activity on the basis of the different patterns of substitution, particularly hydroxylation, unsaturation, and acylation.
Cocoa Polyphenols and Their Potential Benefits for Human Health
TLDR
The phenolics from cocoa may protect against diseases in which oxidative stress is implicated as a causal or contributing factor, such as cancer, and have antiproliferative, antimutagenic, and chemoprotective effects in addition to their anticariogenic effects.
Shikonin reduces oedema induced by phorbol ester by interfering with IκBα degradation thus inhibiting translocation of NF‐κB to the nucleus
TLDR
The effect of shikonin on ear oedema induced by 12‐O‐tetradecanoylphorbol‐13‐acetate (TPA) is studied, and the mechanisms through which shik onin might exert its topical anti‐inflammatory action are determined.
