 In the study at Case Western Reserve University, chamomile showed to exhibit its potential anti-inflammatory mechanisms, through inhibited NO production and iNOS gene expression via inhibiting RelA/p65 activation(1). The study of whether chamomile interferes with the COX-2 pathway, showed a positive effect of the herb in inhibition of COX-2 enzyme activity and causation of  reduction in LPS-induced COX-2 mRNA and protein expression(2),
