Chemicopharmacological characterization of dry extract fromPentaphylloides fruticosa

Abstract

In the search for new drugs of plant origin possessing antiallergic properties, we have prepared a dry extract from the suckers of Kurile bush tea (Pentaphylloidesfruticosa (L.) O. Schwarz). This preparation contains a complex of biologically active substances (including flavonoids, tannins, triterpenoid saponins, phenolcarboxylic acids, and vitamins) and is widely used in folk and traditional medicine for the treatment of various disorders [ 1 ]. The purpose of this work was to select the optimum conditions for extraction of the sum of biologically active substances from the raw plant material, develop a technological scheme for dry extract preparation, determine the content of some biologically active components in the final product, and characterize this product with respect to pharmacological properties.
