Chalcones and their Potential Role in Inflammation
Chalcones are a group of phenolic compounds which possess a wide variety of cytoprotective and modulatory functions. They have been shown to possess antioxidant, oxygen scavenging and anti-inflammatory properties in a variety of experimental systems and can trigger the intracellular cascade of protective pathways offering a promising stratagem for therapeutic applications. In this research we will review the anti-inflammatory effect of chalcone derivatives and new approaches.
