Gelatin tannate reduces the proinflammatory effects of lipopolysaccharide in human intestinal epithelial cells

Abstract

BACKGROUND Gelatin tannate is a mixture of tannic acid and gelatin. Tannic acid has astringent properties, due to its capacity to form protein-macromolecular complexes, as well as antibacterial and antioxidant properties. However, little is known about its anti-inflammatory properties. PURPOSE To evaluate the anti-inflammatory activity of gelatin tannate… (More)
