Description: Oxysophocarpine is an alkaloid from S. flavescens that has neuroprotective, anticancer, anti-inflammatory, and analgesic properties. It increases cell survival and decreases lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) leakage and loss of mitochondrial membrane potential in rat primary hippocampal neurons in a model of oxygen-glucose deprivation and reperfusion injury when used at concentrations of 1, 2, and 5 μM. Oxysophocarpine inhibits proliferation and reduces migration and invasion of SCC-9 and SCC-15 oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) cells in vitro. It reduces tumor growth in an SCC-9 mouse xenograft model and inhibits xylene-induced ear swelling and carrageenan-induced paw edema. It also reduces carrageenan-induced decreases in the paw withdrawal threshold and prevents carrageenan-induced increases in paw tissue levels of TNF-α, IL-1β, IL-6, and prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) in mice when administered at a dose of 80 mg/kg.
