  • Xanthine oxidase inhibitors are known to be therapeutically useful for the treatment of hepatitis and brain tumor. Baicalein, baicalin and wogonin, isolated from Scutellaria rivularis, have been reported to exhibit a strong activity on xanthine oxidase inhibition. In this study, their antioxidant activity was evaluated by modified xanthine oxidase inhibition and cytochrome c reduced methods. The results showed that the order of activity on xanthine oxidase inhibition was baicalein > wogonin… CONTINUE READING
