Description

Inflammation is involved in various diseases including asthma, rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn’s disease, and tendonitis. Moreover, inflammatory responses play roles in the progression of several diseases including cancer, atherosclerosis, diabetes, obesity, and Alzheimer’s disease. Herbal medicines have long been used for preventing or treating diseases including inflammatory diseases. Nonetheless, their effects in inflammatory diseases have not been clearly investigated. Thus, there is an urgent need to improve scientific knowledge on the effects of herbal medicines in inflammatory diseases.
