Emodin-Induced Inhibition of Growth and DNA Damage in the Helicobacter pylori

Studies were conducted to examine the dose effects of emodin on inhibition of growth versus DNA damage events in H. pylori from patients who had peptic ulcer disease. Inhibition of growth study from H. pylori demonstrated that emodin elicited dose-dependent growth inhibition in H. pylori cultures; that is, the greater the concentration of emodin, the… CONTINUE READING
