Abstract:
The plant Levisticum officinale (Lovage) is commonly used as a condiment. It is traditionally used as an anti-flatulent, anti-dyspepsic, spasmolytic and anti-inflammatory agent to relieve rheumatic pain. The main reason for examining Lovage in this study was to determine its potential anti-inflammatory 1 properties in human monocytes (THP-1 cells) stimulated with lipopolysaccharide (LPS). Solvent extracts (methanol/water 1:1 and hexane) of Lovage leaves were used in this study.
