To identify an analgesic/anti-inflammatory component from the leaves of Rhododendron aureum (Ericaceae), phytochemical isolation and pharmacological assays (writhing assays and vascular permeability assay for analgesic action in mice; carrageenan-induced paw edemaand TPA-induced ear edema assays of anti-inflammatory action in rats) were performed. Four compounds were isolated from the active fraction (BuOH fraction) by silica gel column chromatography and identified as (−)-rhododendrol… 
Rhododendrin inhibits toll-like receptor-7-mediated psoriasis-like skin inflammation in mice
TLDR
It is shown that topical treatment with rhododendrin reduces IMQ-induced skin hyperplasia, inflammatory mononuclear cell infiltration and the expression of pro-inflammatory mediators in mouse skin, and inhibits the activation of the TLR-7/NF-κB and mitogen-activated protein kinase pathways in both IMq-induced psoriasis-like skin inflammation in mice and in normal human epidermal keratinocytes treated with IMQ.
Metabolome Comparison of Bioactive and Inactive Rhododendron Extracts and Identification of an Antibacterial Cannabinoid(s) from Rhododendron collettianum.
TLDR
It was shown that bioinformatics tools facilitate early stage identification of a biologically active compound(s) using LC-MS data, which reduce complexity and number of separation steps in bioactive screening.
Anthelmintic A-Type Procyanidins and Further Characterization of the Phenolic Composition of a Root Extract from Paullinia pinnata
TLDR
The findings rationalize the traditional use of P. pinnata root extracts as anthelmintic remedies and exclude the presence of coumarins and coumarinolignans from the list of known compounds.
The Cytotoxic Constituents of Betula platyphylla and their Effects on Human Lung A549 Cancer Cells
TLDR
The compound 4 may be useful for the development of early hit compounds for non-small cell lung carcinoma, but the consideration about selectivity of 4 is required since 4 also showed the cytotoxicity in the human normal lung epithelial BEAS-2B cell line.
Phylogenetic spectrum and analysis of antibacterial activities of leaf extracts from plants of the genus Rhododendron
TLDR
The results suggested that common genetic traits are responsible for the production of bioactive secondary metabolite(s) which act primarily on Gram-positive organisms, and which may affect Gram-negative bacteria in dependence of the activity of multidrug efflux pumps in their cell envelope.

Antinociceptive anti-inflammatory effect of Monotropein isolated from the root of Morinda officinalis.
TLDR
Results indicate that monotropein contributes to the antinociceptive and anti-inflammatory action of Morinda officinalis root.
Anti-inflammatory and antinociceptive effects of sinapyl alcohol and its glucoside syringin.
TLDR
The results suggest that the anti-inflammatory and antinociceptive effects of syringin after oral administration may be attributed to its in vivo transformation to sinapyl alcohol.
Anti-inflammatory and antitumor-promoting effects of the triterpene acids from the leaves of Eriobotrya japonica.
TLDR
Euscaphic acid exhibited marked antitumor-promoting activity in an in vivo two-stage carcinogenesis test of mouse tumor by using 7,12-dimethylbenz[a]anthracene (DMBA) as an initiator and TPA as a promoter.

TLDR
The results suggest that 19alpha-hydroxyursane-type triterpenoids are responsible for the antiinflammatory/antinociceptive action of R. rugosa roots.
(+)-rhododendrol and epi-rhododendrin suppress the NO production by activated macrophages in vivo.
TLDR
The results suggest that (+)-rhododendrol (1) and epi-r Rhododendrin (2) contribute in part to the anti-inflammatory effect of A. nikoense.
In vitro anti-inflammatory activity of 23-hydroxyursolic acid isolated from Cussonia bancoensis in murine macrophage RAW 264.7 cells.
TLDR
The results suggest that the 23-hydroxyursolic acid-mediated inhibition of iNOS and COX-2 expression, via blocking NF- kappaB activation, may mechanistically responsible for the anti-inflammatory effects of Cussonia bancoensis stem bark in vitro.
