  • Ginsenoside Rg1, the major effective component in ginseng, has been reported to have potent antiinflammatory properties. However, the effect of Rg1 on pulmonary inflammation caused by exposure to cigarette smoke (CS) has not been investigated. In this study, we examined the molecular mechanisms underlying the effect of Rg1 on CS-induced inflammation using a mouse model. We found that inflammatory cell numbers (total cells, macrophages and neutrophils) in the bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) fluid… CONTINUE READING
