CHRISIN: A REVIEW OF ITS THERAPEUTIC APPLICATIONS
Periódico Tchê Química
The chrysin, flavonoid mainly encountered in plants and beekeeping products, has awakened the interest between researchers from all over the world, due the wide range of therapeutic properties, like anti inflammatory and antioxidant activities and also your potent antitumor effect. The goal of this task was investigate the various therapeutic applications of chrysin, relating in vitro and in vivo assays, as well as your applications in nanotecnology field. Because of that, this article has been
... developed with researches relating keywords in scientific search sites, like PubMed, Scielo, Google Scholar, etc. Gathering great part of recent literature, it could be seen that the biological properties of chrysin, such as anti inflamatory, antioxidant and antitumoral activities, can be verified by using plants extracts properly treated and purified, or in applications using nanotecnology as being an alternative for a directly and precise use of these activities. Thus, it has been verified the uses against breast cancer, thyroid cancer and uterine colon cancer. Therefore, concludes that chrysin features numerous activities and therapeutic properties tested by in vitro and in vivo assays, in addition to all its nanoapplication potential. These results show and justify the importance of this research for society and for the scientific scope. The differential of this article is the combination of nanotechnology studies and the therapeutic properties of chrysin, which contributes to future research on the topics.
