Udc 577.19 in Vitro Study of the Anti-inflammatory Activity of Some Medicinal and Edible Plants Growing in Russia

Abstract

The effects of the ethanolic extracts of 105 plants used in Russian traditional medicine, 26 vegetables and fruits and 2 mushrooms on the release of tumor necrosis factor (TNF) and prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) in lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-stimulated differentiated human acute monocytic leukemia THP-1 cells were studied using TNFand PGE2 assays, respectively. We found that 16 plant extracts inhibited TNFproduction and 15 extracts decreased PGE2 release in the cells in a concentration-dependent manner. Guilder rose, tansy, shrubby cinquefoil, wintergreen and prince's pine, the last two of which belong to the Pyrolaceae family, notably inhibited the levels of both of the inflammatory mediators.
