Free radical scavenging by ethanol extract of propolis.
The free radical scavenging ability of an ethanolic extract of propolis (EEP) was demonstrated by electron spin resonance spectroscopy, when 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) was treated with
Indications, contraindications and possible side‐effects of climatotherapy at the Dead‐Sea
It has been reported that repeated in the Dead-Sea for a certain length of titne has a utic effect on some skin diseases, and penetration of C)ead-Sea minerals through hutnan and guinea-pig skin through bathing in this hypertonic salt sokitioti has been dernotistrated and quantified.
Prolonged desipramine treatment increases the production of interleukin-10, an anti-inflammatory cytokine, in C57BL/6 mice subjected to the chronic mild stress model of depression.
Prolonged desipramine treatment of stressed and non-stressed C57BL/6 mice induces an increase in the production of IL-10, an anti-inflammatory cytokine.
Synergistic effect of ethanolic extract of propolis and antibiotics on the growth of staphylococcus aureus.
Ethanolic extract of propolis (EEP), known to possess marked antibacterial activity, was incubated with 8 different common antibiotics in culture medium containing a fixed amount of a standard strain of Staphylococcus aureus and had a marked synergistic effect on the antib bacterial activity of streptomycin and cloxacillin.
Structure-activity relationship in the ability of flavonols to inhibit chemiluminescence.
Using chemiluminescence as the quantitative parameter, it can be concluded that the hydroxyl group in position 3 of the flavonols is vital for their inhibitory effect, and that two Hydroxyl groups on the phenyl ring are optimal for such an effect.
Anti-oxidant property of ethanolic extract of propolis (EEP) as evaluated by inhibiting the chemiluminescence oxidation of luminol.
The ability of increasing amounts of EEP to inhibit luminol-H2O2 chemiluminescence in vitro is demonstrated, and it is suggested that its anti-oxidative capacity is partly due to its high content of flavonoids.
Inhibition of neutrophils' chemiluminescence by ethanol extract of propolis (EEP) and its phenolic components.
Results indicate that some of the phenolic components of the ethanol extract of propolis are its active components in exerting its renowned anti-inflammatory activity.
Salivary gland function in patients on chronic lithium treatment.
Because four of the patients exhibited normal salivation, it is suggested that there are some additional factors (e.g., genetic or thyroid function level) that might be involved in salivary dysfunction connected with Li therapy.
