    Author(s): Mohamed NM, Malak LG and Ross SA*

    Background and objective: Inflammation has been studied for thousands of years in an effort to mitigate its negative effects on the body. Analgesic and anti-inflammatory drugs were the primary concern in monoterpenes. Monoterpenes have been recognized for their ability to suppress inflammatory process and modulate the vital chemical mediators of inflammation, such as pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory cytokines. This study aimed to isolate the secondary metabolites of Lantana montevidensis (Verbenaceae) flowers and evaluate their in vitro antiinflammatory activity. Material and methods: Anti-inflammatory activity was done using TNF-α ELISA and NF-κB reporter gene assays. Results and discussion: As a result, seven compounds were isolated and identified, in which three of them were.. Read More»
