Biochem/physiol Actions

α-Bisabolol is active against primary acute leukemia cells, including BCR-ABL(+) acute lymphoblastic leukemias. It is the inhibitor of voltage-dependent Ca(2+) channels in tracheal smooth muscle preparations of rat. It also inhibits human and rat glioma cell growth and survival. It is a potential new therapeutic agent against leishmaniasis.

Although (-)-α-bisabolol, a natural monocyclic sesquiterpene alcohol, is often used as a cosmetic soothing supplement, little is known about its mechanisms of anti-inflammatory effects. Therefore, this study was designed to investigate anti-inflammatory effects of (-)-α-bisabolol and its mechanisms of action.
