[Anti-inflammatory activity of glycyrrhizic acid derivatives].

[Article in Russian]


The derivatives of glycyrrhizin acid--dihydrazidohydrazose of glycyrrhizin acid (DHGA), DHGA plus benzaldehyde, DHGA plus 5-nitrofurfurol, DHGA plus furfurol, glycyrrhizin acid, methylmethioninsulfonium-glycyrrhizinate, sodium salt of 18-glycyrrhetic acid, and potassium salt of glycyrrhizin acid--show a pronounced anti-inflammatory action, inhibit the development of histamine-, serotonin-, bradykinin-, and formalin-induced edemas, barrier function of an inflammatory focus, lower vascular permeability, the granulemic sac weight and exudate amount. The anti-inflammatory action of the compounds remains unchanged under adrenalectomy. By antiphlogistic activity, the derivatives in question compare very favourably to butadion and hydrocortisone, and are similar to prednisolone.
