Abstract Title: 

Anti-inflammatory phenylpropanoids and phenolics from Ficus hirta Vahl.

Abstract: 

Four new phenylpropanoids (1-4) along with ten known phenolics were isolated and purified from the roots of hairy fig (Ficus hirta Vahl.). Their structures were elucidated by the extensive spectroscopic analysis and chemical degradation. The anti-inflammatory activities of the purified compounds were evaluated. Results indicated that the extracts and some purified compounds exhibited pronounced inhibitory effects on the lipopolysaccharides (LPS) induced nitric oxide (NO) production in murine macrophage RAW 264.7 compared to indomethacin, which suggested that hairy fig could be served as an anti-inflammatory agent for health products.
