ETHNOPHARMACOLOGICAL RELEVANCE Aqueous extracts of Cymbopogon citratus (Cy) leaves are used in traditional medicine for the treatment of inflammatory conditions, however, little is known about their mechanism of action. AIM OF THE STUDY The aim of this study is to explore the anti-inflammatory properties of Cymbopogon citratus leaves and their polyphenol-rich fractions (PFs), as well its mechanism of action in murine macrophages. MATERIALS AND METHODS A lipid- and essential oil-free… CONTINUE READING
