Triterpene compounds constitute one of the major groups of plant secondary metabolites. They often occur as ingredients of daily diet or of herbal products used for therapeutic purposes. Each year many pharmacological activities of these compounds are described. This mini-review summarizes pharmacological properties of natural, non-glycosylated triterpenoids, that were reported over the past five years, with special emphasis on antimicrobial, antidiabetic and antiinflammatory effects.

Keywords: Antimicrobial, antidiabetic, anti-inflammatory, cytotoxic, natural triterpenes.
