How to use

In Vitro:

Baohuoside I accelerates apoptosis through the mitochondrial apoptotic pathway, involving the increment of BAX/Bcl-2 ratio, dissipation of mitochondrial membrane potential, transposition of cytochrome c, caspase 3 and caspase 9 activation, degradation of poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase and the over-production of reactive oxygen species (ROS)[1]. In vitro studies with three leukaemia and three solid tumour cell lines show that Baohuoside I has cytotoxic properties, with IC50 values of between 2.8 and 7.5 μg/ml[2].

In Vivo:

Baohuoside I is both anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive, but unlike the cytotoxic and anti-rejection drugs it suppresses only B-cell (antibody) and not T-cell responses. Baohuoside I may have a role in therapy of those autoimmune diseases[2].
