Serjania erecta Radlk (Sapindaceae), commonly called cinco-folhas or cipó-cinco-folhas in Brazil, is thought to be effective for treating several inflammatory diseases. In order to verify the topical anti-inflammatory effect of Serjania erecta, hydroalcoholic extract and fractions were obtained by extraction in solvents of increasing polarity and were tested in mouse models using croton-oil-induced inflammation. Our findings showed that topical application of Serjania erecta hydroalcoholic… Expand
Anti-Inflammatory Activity of a Polymeric Proanthocyanidin from Serjania schiedeana
TLDR
The ethyl acetate extract from Serjania schiedeana, select fractions, and one isolated compound, were evaluated in 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol 13-acetate (TPA) ear edema and kaolin/carrageenan (KC)-induced monoarthritis assays and induced an increment in the levels of these cytokines in joint and spleen.

Gastrointestinal property of Serjania caracasana (Jacq.) Willd. (Sapindaceae) on rats
Serjania caracasana is known as “tingui-da-mata” and is found mainly in Cerrado biome (Brazil). Gastroprotective effect has already been reported for S. erecta, thus the aim of this study was toExpand
Anti-inflammatory activity of the topical preparation of Valeriana wallichii and Achyranthes aspera leaves.
TLDR
The combined in vitro and in vivo anti-inflammatory screening shows that the ethyl acetate fraction of the crude extract of Valeriana wallichii and Achyranthes aspera can be used for the isolation of new Anti-inflammatory lead compounds. Expand
Evaluation of anti-inflammatory effects of Broussonetia papyrifera stem bark
  • Wen-Tung Wu
  • Chemistry, Medicine
  • Indian journal of pharmacology
  • 2012
TLDR
The results suggest that the B. papyrifera stem bark has anti-inflammatory activity which inhibits the NO production and proinflammatory cytokines in RAW 264.7 cells and might act as a potential therapeutic agent for inflammatory diseases. Expand
Phenolic compounds and antioxidant, antimicrobial and antimycobacterial activities of Serjania erecta Radlk. (Sapindaceae)
TLDR
The REMA (Resazurin Microtiter Assay) assay was used to measure the biological activity in vitro against Mycobacterium tuberculosis and results showed moderate activity of the ethanolic extract, while S. erecta inhibited the growth of all microorganisms. Expand
Flavonoids casticin and chrysosplenol D from Artemisia annua L. inhibit inflammation in vitro and in vivo.
TLDR
The flavonoids casticin and chrysosplenol D from A. annua L inhibited inflammation in vitro and in vivo and reduced LPS-induced IκB and c-JUN phosphorylation in Raw264.7 cells. Expand
Gastroprotective effect of Serjania erecta Radlk (Sapindaceae): involvement of sensory neurons, endogenous nonprotein sulfhydryls, and nitric oxide.
TLDR
Effective gastroprotective action and the absence of acute toxicity indicate Serjania erecta Radlk may be a promising herbal drug against gastric disease. Expand
Ação de extratos de plantas medicinais sobre a motilidade do trato gastrointestinal
TLDR
The results suggest that Persea major and Piper mollicomum can be of interest for further studies in the search of active principles or effective plant material for the treatment of disorders of the gastrointestinal tract, such as constipation. Expand
Behavioral and enzymatic bioassays with Serjania erecta Radlk., Sapindaceae, correlated with cognitive dysfunctions
TLDR
The crude extract of Serjania erecta Radlk and its bioactive agents as preventive or inhibitor of memory loss in rodents, as well as other factors correlated with Alzheimer's syndrome: antioxidant and anticholinesterase activity, mainly as plant adaptogen - low toxicity and regulation action. Expand
Hepatic and gastroprotective activity of Serjania marginata leaf aqueous extract in Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus)
TLDR
The results indicated that the leaf aqueous extract of S. marginata assists in the structural maintenance of the liver and intestine and stimulates intestinal alkaline phosphatase production in Nile tilapia, suggesting that the identified compounds act on the Liver and intestine, showing hepatoprotective effects and stimulating intestinal digestion.

TLDR
Echinacina B was found to be more potent than the positive control, benzidamine, a topical non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug, and inhibited oedema both at the maximum and in the decreasing phase, and this effect was directly proportional to the doses used. Expand
Topical antiinflammatory effects of the ether extract from Protium kleinii and alpha-amyrin pentacyclic triterpene.
TLDR
Results indicate that the active constituents present in the ether extract of P. kleinii including the pentacyclic triterpene alpha-amyrin are good candidates to develop a skin permeable antiinflammatory drug. Expand
Down-modulation of nitric oxide production in murine macrophages treated with crude plant extracts from the Brazilian Cerrado.
TLDR
The ethanolic stem bark and leaf extracts of Serjania lethalis and Cupania vernalis, respectively, almost completely inhibited the production of NO by J774 macrophages, indicating potential sources of active compounds that might be used as anti-inflammatory agents. Expand
Comparison of croton oil and cantharidin induced inflammations of the mouse ear and their modification by topically applied drugs.
TLDR
It is suggested that the use of these simple models of dermatitis is appropriate for identifying new, topically effective antiinflammatory drugs. Expand
Anti-bacterial activity of some Brazilian medicinal plants.
TLDR
Amongst the 49 extracts studied, 14 presented anti-bacterial activity against Staphylococcus aureus, including the ethanolic extracts from the rhizome of Jatropha elliptica, from the stem barks of Schinus terebinthifolius and Erythrina mulungu, and from thestem bark and leaves of Lafoensia pacari.

Antifungal and molluscicidal saponins from Serjania salzmanniana.
TLDR
Four saponins were mollusicidal, causing 70-100% mortality at 10 ppm against Biomphalaria alexandrina, a vector of Schistosoma mansoni in the Nile Valley, and showed antifungal activity against Cryptococcus neoformans and Candida albicans. Expand
Screening in mice of some medicinal plants used for analgesic purposes in the state of São Paulo.
TLDR
While several extracts showed a positive effect in one of the tests, significant effects in both tests were produced by Serjania communis only. Expand
Anti-inflammatory compounds of plant origin. Part II. modulation of pro-inflammatory cytokines, chemokines and adhesion molecules.
TLDR
This review focuses on the naturally-occurring compounds with anti-inflammatory properties and attempts to correlate their actions with the modulation of cytokines and associated intracellular signalling pathways. Expand
Edema and cell infiltration in the phorbol ester-treated mouse ear are temporally separate and can be differentially modulated by pharmacologic agents
TLDR
The temporal patterns of edema and accumulation of the PMN marker enzyme, myeloperoxidase, were examined following application of tetradecanoylphorbol acetate to mouse ears and indicate that in the TPA-induced ear inflammation model the MPO response at 24 hr may be a useful additional indicator of drug activity.

TLDR
Current knowledge of the mechanisms by which a large range of plant-derived constituents interfere with three relevant targets involved in the inflammatory process, namely arachidonic acid metabolite pathways, nitric oxide and NF-kappaB are focused on. Expand
