Tournefortia sarmentosa, a Chinese herbal medicine, is considered an antioxidant or a detoxicant agent. Recent studies have shown that T. sarmentosa plays an important role in inhibiting low-density-lipoprotein oxidation and attenuating acetaminophen-induced hepatotoxicity. However, information regarding the signaling mechanism of T. sarmentosa-mediated immunoregulation is still limited. Here, we provide evidence that treating macrophages with T. sarmentosa extract leads to a decrease in… CONTINUE READING
