The Anti-Inflammatory Activity of Pentacyclic Triterpenes In Vitro
The Anti-inflammatory activity of pentacyclic triterpenes, oleananes (1,2), urasanes (3-11), lupanes (12,13), taraxasteranes (14,15), which isolated from Nerium oleander L, were examined. Ursolic acid (5) showed significant activity and compounds (1, 12) and (14) showed weak to modelate activity toward inhibitory activity on ICAM-1 expression.
