Key ResultCalendula officinalis flower extract possessed significant anti-inflammatory activity against carrageenan and dextran-induced acute paw edema. Oral administration of 250 and 500 mg/kg body weight Calendula extract produced significant inhibition (50.6 and 65.9% respectively) in paw edema of animals induced by carrageenan and 41.9 and 42.4% respectively with inflammation produced by dextran.

Acute Toxicity, Anti-ulcer and Anti-inflammatory Effects of Methanol Extract of Gladiolus segetum in Rats

It is suggested that methanol extract of Gladiolus segetum may represent an important clinical alternative in anti-inflammatory and antiulcer genic therapeutics.

Effects of Calendula Officinalis and Hypericum Perforatum on Antioxidant, Anti-Inflammatory, and Histopathology Indices of Induced Periodontitis in Male Rats

Mixed hydroalchoholic extract of H. perforatum and C. officinalis might be considered as an adjunctive treatment for periodontitis and there were significant histopathological differences between the treatment groups and the control group.

Morinda umbellata active fraction inhibits lipopolysaccharide induced proinflammatory cytokines by downregulating NF-κB activation.

The research findings suggest that the presence of anti-inflammatory compounds in MUAF can effectively inhibit LPS-induced proinflammatory cytokines TNF-α, IL-β, and IL-6 in vivo.

Protective effect of Calendula officinalis Linn. flowers against 3-nitropropionic acid induced experimental Huntington’s disease in rats

The present study shows that COE is protective against 3-NP-induced neurotoxicity in rats, suggesting that the antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and estrogenic properties of COE may be responsible for its neuroprotective action.

Healing Acceleration of Acetic Acid-induced Colitis by Marigold (Calendula officinalis) in Male Rats

The results indicate that oral and enema forms of hydroalcoholic extract of C. officinalis can be offered as are potential therapeutic agents for UC induced in rats, and acute inflammation and granular atrophy after UC induction were resolved completely completely.

Antioxidant activity, Antinociceptive and anti-inflammatory effects of Pot marigold hydroalcoholic extract on experimental animals

It is shown that aqueous extract of Pot marigold demonstrated significant differences comparing control and standard groups in all tests, and showed a dose dependent effect on pain or inflammation inhibition.

Controversial effects of Calendula officinalis L. on Biochemical and Pathological Factors of Nephropathy in Diabetic Wistar Rats

The results suggest that although administration of 300 mg/kg of Calendula officinalis extract showed salutary effects on anti-oxidant profile, yet its protective effects onAnti-diabetic and regenerative properties on nephropathy were ambiguous and require more investigations.

A Bio-Guided Fractionation to Assess the Inhibitory Activity of Calendula officinalis L. on the NF-κB Driven Transcription in Human Gastric Epithelial Cells

Experimental evidences are provided that Calendula officinalis L. may exert an anti-inflammatory activity on the gastric district by the inhibition of the NF-κB system, identifying the compounds responsible, at least in part, for the observed effect.



Antioxidant Potential of an Extract of Calendula officinalis. Flowers in Vitro. and in Vivo.

Results indicated Calendula officinalis has significant antioxidant activity in vitro and in vivo.

Comparative effects of the herbal constituent parthenolide (Feverfew) on lipopolysaccharide-induced inflammatory gene expression in murine spleen and liver

Only one gene, IL-6, was modestly suppressed by parthenolide co-exposure which contrasts with many in vitro studies suggesting anti-inflammatory effects of this compound.

Studies on antiinflammatory effect of Cassia tora leaf extract (fam. Leguminosae)

The antiinflammatory effect of the methanol extract of the leaves of Cassia tora was investigated against carrageenin, histamine, serotonin and dextran‐induced rat hind paw oedema. It exhibited

Antifungal Activity Of Calendula Officinalis

The in vitro antifungal activity of Calendula officinalis flower extracts showed high degree of activity against all test fungi and the inhibitory effects of extracts are comparable with that of standard abtibiotics used.
