The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of ellagic acid on platelet expression via the cyclooxygenase (COX) pathway by examining its effects on platelet activation and comparing them with known COX inhibitors in male Sprague-Dawley rats. Ellagic acid is a major compound found in certain fruits and nuts. It has been attributed as having anti-inflammatory, free radical scavenging, and coagulation properties as well as effects on tumor genesis in multiple forms of cancer. We… 
Ellagic acid, an NF-κB inhibitor, ameliorates renal function in experimental diabetic nephropathy.
The results suggest that ellagic acid exhibited renal protective effect in diabetic rats partly through antihyperglycemia which was accompanied by attenuation of inflammatory processes via inhibition of NF-κB pathway.
The Effects of Proresolution of Ellagic Acid in an Experimental Model of Allergic Airway Inflammation
Asthma is a disease of airway inflammation characterized by airway hyperresponsiveness, eosinophilic inflammation, and hypersecretion of mucus. Ellagic acid, a compound derived from medicinal plants
Ellagic acid protects against carrageenan-induced acute inflammation through inhibition of nuclear factor kappa B, inducible cyclooxygenase and proinflammatory cytokines and enhancement of interleukin-10 via an antioxidant mechanism.
The mechanisms of ellagic acid induced protection were proved to be due to reduction of NO, MDA, IL-1β, TNF-α, COX-2 and NF-κB expression and induction of GSH and IL-10 production.
Effects of ellagic acid pretreatment on renal functions disturbances induced by global cerebral ischemic-reperfusion in rat
It is indicated that GCIR impairs certain renal functions and EA as an antioxidant can improve these functions and the possible usefulness of ellagic acid in patients with brain stroke is suggested.
Flow cytometry and light scattering technique in evaluation of nutraceuticals.
This chapter describes a new device for the registration of kinetic changes in cell volume, morphology, and aggregation and overviewed flow cytometry methods of cell viability assessment, with attention given to mechanisms of cell death and survival.
The effect of hydroalcoholic extract of Punica granatum flower on coagulation parameters in rats
It can be concluded that administration of pomegranate flower extract has negligible positive effects on the early stage of experimentally induced bleeding disorder in rats.
Antithrombocytopenic potential of bioactivity guided fractions of traditionally used Psidium guajava Linn. leaves in busulfan induced-thrombocytopenic rats
Background: Psidium guajava L. (family: Myrtaceae) is a traditionally used medicinal plant and possesses various therapeutic properties. This study was aimed to explore the antithrombocytopenic
Viscoelastic hemostatic fibrinogen assays detect fibrinolysis early
Functional Fibrinogen and FIBTEM assays detect fibrinolysis sooner than their corresponding intrinsic and extrinsic assays, and should be employed in actively bleeding trauma patients in order to provide timely antifibrinoslytic therapy.


Meloxicam: influence on arachidonic acid metabolism. Part II. In vivo findings.
In vivo findings confirm the results of in vitro tests, conducted separately, showing that meloxicam preferentially inhibitsCOX-2 over COX-1, the inducible isoenzyme implicated in the inflammatory response, whereas COX1 has cytoprotective effects in the gastric mucosa.
Biodistribution of ellagic acid and dose-related inhibition of lung tumorigenesis in A/J mice.
It is demonstrated that EA localizes preferentially in lung tissues and confirmed that EA administered orally can inhibit lung tumorigenesis and demonstrate that EA in cyclodextrin doubles the level of EA in lung tissue.
Effects of Ellagic Acid by Oral Administration on N-Acetylation and Metabolism of 2-Aminofluorene in Rat Brain Tissues
This is the first demonstration to show that EA decreases the N-acetylation of carcinogens in rat brain tissues.
Inhibition of cyclooxygenase-2 rapidly reverses inflammatory hyperalgesia and prostaglandin E2 production.
It is suggested that continuous production of PGE2 by the COX-2 enzyme is a critical element in sustaining the hyperalgesic response at sites of tissue inflammation.
The thrombopenic effect of ellagic acid in the rat. Another model of platelet stimulation "in vivo".
In immune platelet depleted rats, EA induced only the swelling of lymph nodes and of the spleen, and it is suggested that the pro-aggregating derivatives of arachidonic acid had a minor role in this stimulation.
Pomegranate juice, total pomegranate ellagitannins, and punicalagin suppress inflammatory cell signaling in colon cancer cells.
The polyphenolic phytochemicals in the pomegranate can play an important role in the modulation of inflammatory cell signaling in colon cancer cells.
p53/p21(WAF1/CIP1) expression and its possible role in G1 arrest and apoptosis in ellagic acid treated cancer cells.
Activation of the cdk inhibitory protein p21 byEllagic acid suggests a role for ellagic acid in cell cycle regulation of cancer cells.
The chemical nature of the action of ellagic acid seemed to be related to the presence of o-dihydroxyl groups in its molecule, and appeared to activate Hageman factor in a manner analogous to that of glass surfaces.
The effect of ellagic acid on coagulation in vivo.
Ellagic acid shortens the silicone and glass clotting times of the blood of dogs, cats, rabbits and rats, and it appears to decrease bleeding in normal animals.
