A series of 1,3,4-oxadiazole derivatives derived from 4-methoxysalicylic acid or 4-methylsalicylic acid (6a-6z) have been first synthesized for their potential immunosuppressive activity. Among them, compound 6z displayed the most potent biological activity against lymph node cells (inhibition=38.76% for lymph node...

Intake of flavonoids from the diet can be substantial, and epidemiological studies suggest that these compounds can decrease the incidence of cardiovascular diseases by involvement with increased platelet aggregation. Although parent flavonoids possess antiplatelet effects, the clinical importance is disputable...

Flavonoids are abundant polyphenols in nature. They are extensively biotransformed in enterocytes and hepatocytes, where conjugated (methyl, sulfate, and glucuronide) metabolites are formed. However, bacterial microflora in the human intestines also metabolize flavonoids, resulting in the production of smaller phenolic...
