BACKGROUND Bornyl acetate is a bicyclic monoterpene present in numerous conifer oils. In this study, we aimed at clarifying the potential anti-inflammatory function and mechanism of bornyl acetate by using lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced acute lung injury murine model and RAW 264.7 cells. MATERIALS AND METHODS RAW 264.7 cells were pretreated with bornyl acetate 1 h before LPS stimulation and cell-free super supernatants were collected to measure cytokine concentrations. To induce acute lung… CONTINUE READING
