Scientists may have found a potential herbal medicine's ingredient for the treatment of acute and chronic inflammation with no side effects, some studies suggested.
Inflammation is a systematic immune response during the acute phase of infection.
Macrophages, one the lymphocytes and the first line defense of the immune system after sensing the damage of localized tissue, stimulate the production of proinflammatory cytokines to the site to protect the body against invasion of potential pathogens.
However, in some cases, overexpression of proinflammatory cytokines can cause the death of nearby healthy cells, leading to abnormal skin healing and formation of irreversible scars.
Chronic inflammation is a result of a prolonged period of inflammation that lasts for several months and even years caused by the inability of the immune system to kill off all harmful microorganisms during the acute phase of infection.
Chronic inflammation can also be caused by an autoimmune disorder in which immune system continuously attacks normal and healthy tissue, by mistaking them for the causable pathogens.
Epidemiological studies, linking chronic inflammation to certain diseases such as heart disease or stroke, has been under investigation in many scientistic communities. However, as of today, scientists still do not know why people with the same health conditions and family history, some are susceptible to the onset of chronic inflammation while others do not.
The herb has been used in herbal medicine to treat reduce inflammation, Peripheral vascular disease, Hemorrhoids Bronchial asthma, Varicose veins, Hypotension, Jaundice, functional disorders of the heart, kidney disorder, venotonic and anti-oedematous properties, etc..
The chemical ingredients include rutin, sitosterol, sparteine, spirostanol saponins, steroidal sapogenins, sterols, stigmasterol, sulfated steroidal saponins, sweet broom, tetracosanoic acid, triterpenes, triterpenes, and tyramine.
In the study to reaffirm traditional Chinese medicine use of Butcher's broom for the treatment of -inflammation and thrombosis, researchers at the China Pharmaceutical University, Nanjing launched an investigation to examine the anti-inflammatory and anti-thrombotic activities of Ruscogenin (RUS), isolated from Butcher's broom.
* Ruscogenin inhibits the lung inflammation by reducing expression of inflammatory cytokine and immune leukocyte infiltration by limiting the action of nuclear factor (NF)-κB in the activation of the immune response.
