In the present study, the ethanolic extract prepared from Af was tested for its anti-inflammatory effects on lipopolysaccharide LPS -activated primary cultures of brain microglial cells.

Sweet Yarrow Achillea ageratum.

Achillea species are used as food plants by the larvae of some Lepidoptera species – see list of Lepidoptera that feed on Achillea. In other projects Wikimedia Commons Wikispecies.

The genus is native primarily to Europetemperate areas of Asiaand North America. Achillea Asteraceae genera Taxa named by Carl Linnaeus. According to legend, Achilles’ soldiers used yarrow to treat their wounds, [6] hence some of its common names such as allheal and bloodwort.

International Association for Plant Taxonomy. The extract of Achillea fragrantissima Afwhich is a desert plant that has been used for many years in traditional medicine for the treatment of various diseases, was the most efficient extract, and was further studied for additional anti-neuroinflammatory effects in these cells. Retrieved from ” https: In the present study, extracts from 66 different desert plants were tested for their effect on lipopolysaccharide LPS – induced production of NO by primary microglial cells.

Silvery Yarrow Achillea clavenae. A number of species – notably A. Cell viability was assessed using Lactate dehydrogenase Fragrabtissima activity in the media conditioned by the cells or by the crystal violet cell staining. NO levels secreted by the activate cells avhillea measured using Griess reagent, ROS levels were measured by 2’7′-dichlorofluorescein diacetate DCF-DAMMP-9 activity was measured using gel zymography, and the protein levels of the proinflammatory enzymes cyclooxygenase-2 COX-2 and induced nitric oxide synthase iNOS were measured by Western blot analysis.


The plants show large, flat clusters of small flowers at the top of the stem. Nearly 1, names have been published within the genus Achilleaat or below the level of species.

The flowers can be white, yellow, orange, pink or red and are generally visited by many insects, and are thus characterised achilllea a generalised pollination system.

During the neuroinflammatory process, microglial cells release fragrqntissima mediators such as cytokines, matrix metalloproteinases MMPReactive oxygen species ROS and nitric oxide NO.
