It has been shown in a previous study that brown coal-derived potassium humate is safe and effective in suppressing contact hypersensitivity in rats. In this study the efficacy of potassium humate on other types of inflammation was determined. Preparative TLC followed by mass spectroscopy was used in an attempt to fingerprint the product. The effects of potassium humate, at an oral dose of 60 mg/kg bodyweight, on a delayed type hypersensitivity reaction, a carrageenan-induced inflammation model… CONTINUE READING
