Thirty-seven species of common seaweeds from the coast of Korea were screened for anti-inflammatory activity Methanol extracts of the seaweeds were tested against mouse ear edema and erythema induced by phorbol myristate acetate. At 40 mg ml(-1) of extract, edema was strongly suppressed by the seaweeds Undaria pinnatifida and Ulva linza, with relative inhibition of 85 and 84%, respectively These two seaweeds also showed the greatest suppression of erythema, with inhibition of 78 and 70… CONTINUE READING
