The aim of our study was to demonstrate the effects of three natural substances with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory pinworm patogenezis on the severity of acute experimental pancreatitis.
Besides the regulation of the circadian rhythm the pineal product melatonin has recently been shown to exhibit strong antioxidant as well as anti-inflammatory effects in various organs like the brain, heart, liver, retina and the gut. Melatonin can directly detoxify free radicals; it influences the antioxidant function pinworm patogenezis scavenger enzymes and depresses the synthesis of inflammatory cytokines through the inhibition of the transcription factor NF-kappa B.
Resveratrol is a plant-derived phytoalexin used in the traditional Chinese medicine as a drug against inflammation, allergy and hyperlipidemia.
It exerts beneficial effects in several organs like heart, brain, lung and intestines by el iminating free radicals, inhibiting platelet aggregation, endothelial activation and the activation of NF-kappa B.
Zerumbone is a sesquiterpenoid found in pinworm patogenezis amounts in the rhizome of Zingiber zerumbet, pinworm patogenezis plant traditionally used as a condiment and in the South-east Asian countries as a drug for the treatment of pinworm patogenezis, sores, loss of appetite, worm infestation, toothache and indigestion.
The effects of these three substances on acute pancreatitis were examined in different experimental setting. Our results lead to the conclusion that the pineal product melatonin has a moderate impact on the pancreas, but due to its antioxidant qualities it can exert a protective effect in the liver of animals with acute necrotizing pancreatitis.
The beneficial pancreatic effects of resveratrol in acute edematous pinworm patogenezis are presumably mediated by the intrinsic antioxidant effect of resveratrol or by an NF-κ B-independent anti-inflammatory mechanism. In contrast to this, the observed antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects of isolated zerumbone are likely to be mediated through the inhibition of NF-κ B activation.
