Antiinflammatory Agents from Plants


Presentation Transcript

PowerPoint Presentation:



INFLAMMATION The response to the stress of tissue damage is called inflammation Symptoms Redness Heat Pain Swelling Loss of functions Factors a) Cut & Burns b) Pathogens & Toxins c) Foreign bodies – dirt , pollengrains d) Immune reaction due to hyper-sensitivity. e) Chemical Irritants. f ) Radiations Stages of inflammation Vasodilation & increased permeability. Phagocytic migration. Tissue repair.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Mechanism of Inflammation The process of inflammation is initiated by cells present in tissue. On activation cells release mediators. Cells Mastocytes Histocytes Macrophases Dendritic cells Kupper cell. Cell derived Mediators 1.Prostaglandin 2.Histamines 3.Leukotrienes 4.TNF- α IL Plasma derived Mediators Bradykinin Thrombin Plasmin Fibrin

FLAVNOIDS Species & Family Part C.C. MOA Quercus ileus ( Fagaceae ) Leaves Kaemferol-di coumaroyl-glycoside -- Populus tremula (Salicaceae) Leaves Salicin COX inhibitors

Quercus iteus L.:

Quercus iteus L. Family: Fagaceae Part : Leaves Active ConstituentS: Kaemferol-di coumaroyl-glycoside Screening: Croton oil induced dermatitis Dose dependent anti edematous effect at the time of maximal edematous response of control Anti-edematous effect during entire observation period. It is about 4 times more active than indomethacin & its activity is much more prolonged .

PowerPoint Presentation:

FLAVONOIDS Quercetin, Morin, Olenolic acid, Ursolic acid, Glycyrrhetic acid & Caffeine sufficiently suppress TPA-induced ear edema. LOX inhibitors, quercetin, kaempferol & baicalein, inhibit ear edema development much more markedly than COX inhibitor, paeonol. Of the various flavonoids, flavones and flavonol inhibit inflammation. In flavonols & flavones of same type, flavonol derivatives show greater inhibition than flavone derivatives. Flavanone & catechin have no effect. A double bound at C-2 & C-3 of flavonoid structure is prerequisite . Flavonoid having oxygen functions at 5, 7 & 4’ like Apigenin & Kaempferol type are more avtive than other type.

TETRANDINE Inhibitory effects on a number of inflammatory cells. Suppress the release\activity of inflammatory cytokinin, histamin as well as lipid mediators. inhibit the production of TNF- α by MNL. Broad spectrum antiinflammatory activity. If the reports of its apparent lack of toxicity in therapeutic doses are confirmed, tetrandine may serve as an important prototype compound for the development of a new class of antiinflammatory agent the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and other chronic inflammatory diseases.
