Objective: To evaluate the anti-inflammatory activity of flavonoid (Quercetin 20 mg/kg) on acute inflammation (carrageenan-induced paw edema) and chronic inflammation (cotton pellet granuloma) in guinea pigs. Methodology: Studying sample of guinea pigs were divided in two groups. Group I was used as control received 1ml of 5% carboxymethyl cellulose suspension, group II was treated with indomethacin (10 mg/kg) and Quercetin at a dose of 20 mg/kg was given orally to group III. 1.0 ml of… Expand

DMCB of Termitomyces albuminosus possessed the analgesic and anti-inflammatory activities, and saponins and polysaccharides were proposed to be the major active constituents of TerMITomycesalbuminosus in submerged culture. Expand
Anti-inflammatory activities of the methanol extracts and an isolated furanoditerpene constituent of Sphenocentrum jollyanum Pierre (Menispermaceae).
The results provide some justification for the folkloric uses of Sphenocentrum jollyanum in the treatment of inflammatory-based diseases across the West African sub-region. Expand
Phases of the inflammatory response to subcutaneous implantation of a cotton pellet and their modification by certain anti-inflammatory agents.
Daily estimation of the hydroxyproline contents of granulomas from one through six days after implantation of a cotton pellet confirmed the validity of using the increase in dry weight of the granuloma between days 3 and 6 as a measure of the proliferative phase. Expand
Effects of naturally occurring flavonoids on inflammatory responses and their action mechanisms.
Flavonoids are natural polyphenolic compounds widely distributed in plant kingdom. Although many flavonoids were found to show anti-inflammatory activity in vitro and in vivo, the potency ofExpand
Modulation of acute inflammation by endogenous nitric oxide.
It is suggested that endogenous NO is released at the site of acute inflammation and modulates oedema formation and is predominantly generated by the constitutive or by the inducible NO synthase. Expand
Carrageenan‐induced mouse paw oedema is biphasic, age‐weight dependent and displays differential nitric oxide cyclooxygenase‐2 expression
It is demonstrated that both eNOS and iNOS expressions are dependent upon the age-weight of mice, as opposite to COX‐2 that is present only in the second phase of the oedema and is not linked to mouse age–weight. Expand
The effects of plant flavonoids on mammalian cells: implications for inflammation, heart disease, and cancer.
Western medicine has not yet used flavonoids therapeutically, even though their safety record is exceptional, and suggestions are made where such possibilities may be worth pursuing. Expand

The activity of flavonoids as inhibitors of reverse transcriptase suggests a place for these compounds in the control of retrovirus infections, such as acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). Expand
Structure-antioxidant activity relationships of flavonoids and phenolic acids.
The factors underlying the influence of the different classes of polyphenols in enhancing their resistance to oxidation are discussed and support the contention that the partition coefficients of the flavonoids as well as their rates of reaction with the relevant radicals define the antioxidant activities in the lipophilic phase.
