Grateloupia lanceolata is a red alga native to coastal areas of East Asia. In this study, extract from G. lanceolata (EGL) was investigated for suppressive effects on lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced inflammatory responses in RAW 264.7 macrophages. EGL was found to have anti-inflammatory properties with the inhibition of nitric oxide (NO), pro-inflammatory… CONTINUE READING
