AbstractThe evaluation of the antioxidant, anti-secretory and anti-inflammatory potentials of the ethyl acetate fraction (ELC) from the root bark of Lycium chinense against ethanol-induced gastric ulcer in mice and the possible mechanisms underlying this action was performed. The results indicated that oral administration of ELC (50, 100, 200 and 400 mg/kg) before ethanol-induced ulcer increased the gastric mucus content, restored the superoxide dismutase and glutathione levels, reduced… 
Anti-inflammatory effects of fruit and leaf extracts of Lycium barbarum in lipopolysaccharide-stimulated RAW264.7 cells and animal model
The results suggest that the fruit and leaves of Lycium are potential therapeutic agents against inflammation.
Effect of the Polyphenol Rich Ethyl Acetate Fraction from the Leaves of Lycium chinenseMill. on Oxidative Stress, Dyslipidemia, and Diabetes Mellitus in Streptozotocin‐Nicotinamide Induced Diabetic Rats
The present study has revealed that L. chinenseMill possess anti‐hyperglycemic and anti-hyperlipidemic properties which is mediated through modulation of oxidative stress and polyphenolics might be responsible for the action.
Constituents of leaves from Bauhinia curvula Benth. exert gastroprotective activity in rodents: role of quercitrin and kaempferol
Findings show that B. curvula extracts present gastroprotective effect, mainly explained by the presence of flavonoids quercitrin and kaempferol, which may possibly improve the defensive factors of gastric mucosa.
Anti-neuroinflammatory effects of grossamide from hemp seed via suppression of TLR-4-mediated NF-κB signaling pathways in lipopolysaccharide-stimulated BV2 microglia cells
Grossamide significantly inhibited the secretion of pro-inflammatory mediators such as interleukin 6 (IL-6) and tumor necrosis factor α (TNF-α), and decreased the level of LPS-mediated IL-6 and TNF- α mRNA, suggesting that grossamide could be a potential therapeutic candidate for inhibiting neuro inflammation in neurodegenerative diseases.
Isolation, Gastroprotective Effects and Untargeted Metabolomics Analysis of Lycium Minutifolium J. Remy (Solanaceae)
The results can support the gastroprotective properties of the edible infusion extract, and at least can validate in part, the ethnopharmacological uses of the plant.


Anti-Ulcerogenic Properties of Lycium chinense Mill Extracts against Ethanol-Induced Acute Gastric Lesion in Animal Models and Its Active Constituents
Findings suggests Lycium chinense Mill possesses gastroprotective properties against ethanol-induced gastric injury and could be a possible therapeutic intervention in the treatment and management of gastric ulcers.

Antiulcerogenic activity of extract, fractions, and some compounds obtained from Polygala cyparissias St. Hillaire & Moquin (Polygalaceae)
The results showed that at a dose of 50 mg/kg, these compounds reduced the percentage of ulcer by around 71.26 ± 9.26%, which may be attributed, at least in part, to the antiulcerogenic activity of P. cyparissias.
