Inhibition of hypersensitivity reactions by soluble derivatives of baicalein

Japanese Journal of Pharmacology

Baicalein, a flavonoid, is anti-allergic but only slightly soluble in water. The soluble derivatives of baicalein, disodium baicalein-6-phosphate (BPS) and sodium baicalein-6-sulfate (BSS), were synthesized and examined regarding their effects on hypersensitivity reactions. These derivatives inhibited type I and II reactions as classified by Coombs and Gell. The Arthus reaction belonging to type III reaction, however, was hardly affected with either BPS or BSS. The experimental asthma caused by passive systemic anaphylaxis in guinea pigs was prevented with application of BPS. Thus even by the oral route, BPS appears to be clinically applicable to extensive allergy related diseases.

Allergies & Environmental Factors

Environmental factors are strongly associated with the prevalence of allergies and are an increasing health concern worldwide. Discover the latest research on Allergies and Environmental Factors here.


Anaphylaxis is a serious allergic reaction that is rapid in onset and may cause death.

Allergy and Asthma

Allergy and asthma are inflammatory disorders that are triggered by the activation of an allergen-specific regulatory t cell. These t cells become activated when allergens are recognized by allergen-presenting cells. Here is the latest research on allergy and asthma.
