Anti-Osteoclastogenic Plants from the Northern Part of Vietnam
The skeletal system is a highly dynamic environment in which osteoclasts and osteoblasts coexist. However, when osteoclasts become overactive, they can lead to bone illnesses like osteoporosis. Scientists have well understood that the mechanism by which osteoclasts are stimulated is RANKL/RANK. As a result, various drugs have been developed to suppress this pathway; nonetheless, side effects have caused consumers to be concerned. To overcome this problem, they approached plant-based drugs. In this paper, anti-osteoclastogenesis properties of 23 botanical species were screened. After being treated on RANKL-induced osteoclasts, nine samples exhibited strongly anti-osteoclastogenesis effects. Three samples: Cyperus stoloniferus (S13); Desmodium styracifolium (S17); and Symplocos sumuntia (S22) were first reported on their anti-osteoclastogenetic activity.
