There has been an increasing number of studies concerning the multiple biological activities of polyphenolic compounds. In this present study, we determined the effect of chlorogenic acid (CRA), a polyphenolic compound, on septic arthritis caused by Candida albicans, a major etiological agent that causes fungal arthritis. To induce septic arthritis, an emulsified mixture of C. albicans cell wall and Complete Freund's Adjuvant (CACW/CFA) was injected into BALB/c mice via hind footpad route once… CONTINUE READING
