The available conventional remedies for the treatment of drug-induced liver diseases are highly inadequate and possess serious adverse effects; therefore, the development of new, effective drugs is considered necessary. This article explores the hepatoprotective and antioxidant potential of 7-methylcoumarin (MC)...

A simple HPLC-PAD-MS method was established to quantitatively analyse two spiroether isomers (cis-en-yn-dicycloether and trans-en-yn-dicycloether) and the main coumarin, herniarin, in chamomile herbs, simultaneously. By using this method, the contents of these three compounds in the flowers of two chamomile...

Pretreatment of rats with phenobarbitone increased hepatic microsomal 7-methoxy-and 7-ethoxy-coumarin O-dealkylase activities. Pretreatment with beta-naphthoflavone increased only the 7-ethoxycoumarin O-dealkylase activity. The addition of metyrapone in vitro inhibited the O-dealkylations to different extents. Similar results were obtained with diphenyloxazole and...
