How to use

In Vitro:

3, 4-Dicaffeoylquinic acid acts as a greater primary antioxidant than its methanol extract, by having higher ferric reducing activity (EC50 2.18 μg/ml), β-carotene bleaching activity (EC50 23.85 μg/ml) and DPPH scavenging activity (EC50 68.91 μg/ml). 3, 4-Dicaffeoylquinic acid exhibits a remarkable dose-dependent inhibitory effect on NCI-H23 (human lung adenocarcinoma) cell lines (EC50 3.26 μg/ml) and is found to be apoptotic in nature based on a clear indication of DNA fragmentation. 3, 4-Dicaffeoylquinic acid also displays a concentration-dependent α-glucosidase inhibition with EC50 241.80 μg/ml.
