farfara by flow injection chemiluminescence, Asian J.
farfara is usually used for treating dandruff.
A recent report revealed that four sesquiterpenoids isolated from Tussilago
farfara also had neuroprotective effects by reducing the levels of NO, [PGE.sub.2], TNF-[alpha], and ROS in the LPS-stimulated BV2 cell and PC12 cell coculture system through the blockage of the NF[kappa]B pathway .
Flos Farfarae is the flower buds of Tussilago
farfara L., which is mostly produced in Shanxi, Henan, Gansu, and Hebei provinces and so on.
Tussilagone (or L-652,469) is a terpene that comes from the buds of the plant Tussilago

Seidel, "Antitubercular activity of Arctium lappa and Tussilago
farfara extracts and constituents," Journal of Ethnopharmacology, vol.
Among 56 tested plants, Dioscorea bulbifera showed the highest antioxidant capacity (708.73 [micro]mol TE/g), followed by Eriobotrya japonica (326.87 [micro]mol TE/g), and Tussilago
farfara (217.62 [micro]mol TE/g) which were significantly higher than our results.
Wider studies enabled identification of species such as Achillea millefolium, Artriplex nitens, Chenopodium album, Cirsium arvense, Daucus carota, Matricaria inodora, Picris hieracioides, Sonchus arvensis, Sonchus Asper, Tussilago
farfara and Verbascum Thapsus (Ciesielczuk et al., 2011).
