Abstract: Two high-molecular water-soluble preparations with high anticomplementary, antioxidant, antilipoperoxidant and antiinflammatory activities were isolated from the roots of Symphytum asperum and S. caucasicum. Their main chemical constituent was found to be poly[oxy-1-carboxy-2-(3,4-dihydroxyphenyl)ethylene], according to IR and NMR spectroscopy. The Symphytum high-molecular preparations can modulate in vitro B- chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (B-CLL) cells apoptosis and cell cycle progression.
Keywords: Caffeic acid; 3-(3; 4-dihydroxyphenyl)glyceric acid; Symphytum asperum; Symphytum asperum caucasicum; poly[oxy-1-carboxy-2-(3; 4-dihydroxyphenyl)ethylene].
