Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) has become a global public health problem. Therefore, the development of novel and effective therapeutic agents for the treatment of HCC is considered an emergency. Avicularin, a bio‑active flavonoid from plants, has been reported to exhibit diverse pharmacological properties. The aim of the present study was to investigate the role of avicularin in HCC and the underlying mechanism of action. Huh7 cells were treated with avicularin in a concentration‑dependent manner, and the cell proliferation was examined using a 3‑(4, 5‑dimethylthiazol‑2‑yl)‑2, 5‑diphenyltetrazolium bromide assay kit. The cell migration and invasion abilities were detected using wounding‑healing assays and Transwell assays. Flow cytometric analysis was performed to investigate the cell cycle distribution and cell apoptosis. The activity of nuclear factor (NF)‑κB (p65), cyclooxygenase‑2 (COX‑2) and peroxisome proliferator‑activated receptor γ (PPAR‑γ) were measured by reverse transcription‑quantitative polymerase chain reaction and western blot analyses, respectively. The results indicated that avicularin treatment markedly decreased cell proliferation concentration‑dependently in HCC, and inhibited cell migration and invasion in Huh7 cells. It was also found that the treatment of avicularin markedly inhibited the G0/G1‑phase cells and decreased the accumulation of S‑phase cells in the cell cycle and induced cell apoptosis. In addition, it was confirmed that the anticancer efficacy of avicularin in HCC was dependent on the regulation of NF‑κB (p65), COX‑2 and PPAR‑γ activities. In conclusion, the findings suggested that avicularin serves an antineoplastic role in HCC and may provide a potential therapeutic strategy for the treatment of HCC.

The present study aimed to investigate the effect of avicularin on rheumatoid arthritis (RA) in vitro, and additionally explore the molecular mechanism. To perform this investigation, an in vitro model of RA was established by treatment of the human RA synovial MH7A cell line with tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α). MH7A cells were then treated with various concentrations (10, 30, 100 and 300 µM) of avicularin. Then, the levels of inflammatory factors [interleukin (IL)-1β, IL-6, IL-8, matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-1 and MMP-13] were measured by ELISA. Cell viability and apoptosis were detected using an MTT assay and flow cytometry, respectively. In addition, the expression levels of genes and proteins were determined reverse transcription quantitative polymerase chain reaction and western blot analysis. The results of the present study indicated that avicularin significantly decreased the levels of inflammatory factors (IL-1β, IL-6, IL-8, MMP-1 and MMP-13), previously increased by TNF-α, in a dose-dependent manner. Concurrently, avicularin inhibited the mRNA and protein expression levels of iNOS and COX-2 increased by TNF-α. It was also identified that TNF-α administration significantly promoted MH7A cell viability and inhibited cell apoptosis, and avicularin treatment dose-dependently inhibited MH7A cell viability and induced cell apoptosis. In addition, these data suggested that avicularin prevented the activation of the mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase (MEK)/nuclear factor kappa light-chain-enhancer of activated B-cells (NF-κB) pathway activated by TNF-α. Taken together, these results demonstrated that avicularin may inhibit the inflammatory response, prevent cell viability and induce apoptosis in human RA synovial cells through preventing the activation of the MEK/NF-κB pathway.

The aim of this study was to use the pharmacokinetic information of avicularin in rats to project a dose for humans using allometric scaling. A highly sensitive and specific bioanalytical assay to determine avicularin concentrations in the plasma was developed and validated for UPLC-MS/MS. The plasma protein binding of avicularin in rat plasma determined by the ultrafiltration method was 64%. The pharmacokinetics of avicularin in nine rats was studied following an intravenous bolus administration of 1 mg/kg and was found to be best described by a two-compartment model using a nonlinear mixed effects modeling approach. The pharmacokinetic parameters were allometrically scaled by body weight and centered to the median rat weight of 0.23 kg, with the power coefficient fixed at 0.75 for clearance and 1 for volume parameters. Avicularin was rapidly eliminated from the systemic circulation within 1 h post-dose, and the avicularin pharmacokinetic was linear up to 5 mg/kg based on exposure comparison to literature data for a 5-mg/kg single dose in rats. Using allometric scaling and Monte Carlo simulation approaches, the rat doses of 1 and 5 mg/kg correspond to the human equivalent doses of 30 and 150 mg, respectively, to achieve comparable plasma avicularin concentrations in humans.

Description :

Avicularin is a bio-active flavonoid from plants, anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic, anti-oxidant, hepatoprotective, and anti-tumor activities. Avicularin exhibits anti-inflammatory activity through the suppression of ERK signaling pathway in LPS-stimulated RAW 264.7 macrophage cells. Avicularin ameliorates human hepatocellular carcinoma via the regulation of NF κB (p65), COX 2 and PPAR γ activities[1][2].
