Antinociceptive and anti-inflammatory effects of limonin isolated from the dried fruits of Evodia rutaecarpa var. bodinieri were investigated. Oral administration of 30 or 100 mg/kg limonin significantly decreased the frequency of licking and biting behavior within a unit of time at the late phase without affecting that of the early phase in the formalin test. Limonin inhibited the rise of vascular permeability induced by acetic acid and the increase of paw edema induced by carrageenin. Limonin also showed inhibitory effects on bradykinin-induced paw edema and arachidonic acid-induced ear swelling. These results suggest that limonin possesses an antinociceptive effect and the effect may be accompanied by an anti-inflammatory action, and that the antinociceptive activity in Evodiae Fructus is partially attributable to limonin.

Background: Ovarian cancer therapy generally involves systemic chemotherapy with anticancer drugs; however, chemotherapy with a platinum-based drug has often been shown to cause adverse reactions and drug resistance in ovarian cancer patients. Evodia rutaecarpa (ER) reportedly shows anticancer activity against various types of cancer cells. However, the effects of ER have not yet been fully uncovered in ovarian cancer.
Methods: In the present study, we investigated the anticancer effects of an ER extract and its components against the ovarian cancer cell lines SKOV-33, A2780, RMUG-S and a cisplatin-resistant SKOV-3 cell line (CisR SKOV-3). Cell viability and colony formation assays along with subcellular fractionation analysis, immunoblotting, and immunofluorescence staining were performed.
Results: ER treatment led to a significant reduction in the viability of SKOV-3 cells. Moreover, limonin, a compound found in ER, reduced the viability of both serous-type (SKOV-3 and A2780) and mucinous-type (RMUG-S) ovarian cancer cells by inducing apoptosis via activation of the p53 signaling pathway. Furthermore, limonin reversed the drug resistance through activation of apoptosis in CisR SKOV-3.
Conclusion: Taken together, our findings suggest that limonin contributes to the anti-ovarian cancer effects of ER by inducing apoptosis via activation of the p53 signaling pathway.

A liquid chromatographic-mass spectrometric (LC-MS) method has been developed and validated for simultaneous determination of dehydroevodiamine and limonin from Evodia rutaecarpa in rat plasma. After addition of the internal standard, domperidone, plasma samples were extracted by liquid-liquid extraction with ethyl acetate and separated on an Apollo C(18) column (250 mm × 4.6 mm, 5 μm), with methanol-0.01% formic acid water (60:40, v/v) as mobile phase, within a runtime of 12.0 min. The analytes were detected without interference in the selected ion monitoring (SIM) mode with positive electrospray ionization. The linear range was 1.0-500 ng mL(-1) for dehydroevodiamine and 2.0-1,000 ng mL(-1) for limonin, with lower limits of quantitation of 1.0 and 2.0 ng mL(-1), respectively. Intra-day and inter-day precision were within 6.0% and 10.9%, respectively, for both analytes, and the accuracy (relative error, RE, %) was less than 4.8% and 6.5%, respectively. The validated method was successfully applied to a comparative pharmacokinetic study of dehydroevodiamine and limonin in rat plasma after oral administration of dehydroevodiamine, limonin, and an aqueous extract of Evodiae fructus. The results indicated there were obvious differences between the pharmacokinetic behavior after oral administration of an aqueous extract of Evodiae fructus compared with single substances.
