Flavonoids, leucocyte migration and eicosanoids.


Quercetin reduced the concentration of prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) and leukotriene B4 (LTB4) in the pleural exudate induced in rats by 1% carrageenan given intrapleurally. Leucocyte migration in the exudate was also reduced by the flavonoid. Inhibition of eicosanoids and leucocytes in the exudate was dose-related. Quercetin also reduced LTB4 synthesis in cells… (More)
