Cytokine Secretion In Whole Blood Of Healthy Subjects Following Oral Administration Of Urtica Dioica L. Plant Extract
Notes for this study:
|Number of Subjects
Oral ingestion of Stinging Nettle was able to reduce the amount of TNF-a (a pro-inflammatory biomarker and cytokine) released in response to lipopolysacchrade (LPS).
A release of IL-6 was seen when LPS was not present, but did not occur with LPS present and thus was not overly inflammatory.
