Nature has generously offered life-saving therapies to mankind by providing evolutionarily optimized drug-like entities in the form of natural products. These splendid gifts of nature have served as most suitable candidates for anti-cancer drug discovery due to their pleiotropic activity on target molecules. This review aims to provide an update on the natural sources and bioactivities of such gifts from nature, salvianolic acid A & B, which are major bioactive constituents of a traditional Chinses medicinal herb, Salvia miltiorrhiza. Salvianolic acid A & B have been reported to owe anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory and cardioprotective activities. Currently salvianolic acids have been emerged as potent anti-cancer molecules. Salvianolic acid A & B fight cancer progression by prompting apoptosis, halting cell cycle and adjourning metastasis by targeting multiple deregulated signaling networks of cancer. Moreover, salvianolic acid A & B display potency towards sensitizing cancer cells to chemo-drugs. The review purposes that salvianolic acid A & B supply a novel opportunity for drug discovery but further experimentation is mandatory to embellish the knowledge of their pharmacological usage and to access their toxicological limits in order to establish these compounds as potential multitarget future drugs.

Salvianolic acid A (Sal A), an active monomer of Salvia miltiorrhiza, is a phenolic carboxylic acid derivative. The present study was performed to investigate the underlying mechanism of the anti-inflammation effect of Sal A, especially focusing on mTOR-KEAP1-Nrf2 and P2X7R-PKR-NLRP3 signaling pathways.

SD mice were divided into four groups: PBS, oxidized-low density lipoprotein (ox-LDL, 3 mg/kg), and ox-LDL (3 mg/kg) + Sal A (5 mg/kg) and + Sal A (10 mg/ml) groups. In in vitro experiments, ARPE-19 cells were cultured with serum free medium (SFM) or ox-LDL (100 mg/L), with or without Sal A (5 µM/50 µM) for 24 hours.

Sal A attenuated ox-LDL-induced lipidosis and apoptosis in the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) layer. Ox-LDL elevated ROS level and induced RPE inflammation, which were inhibited by Sal A pretreatment. Sal A activated PI3K/AKT/mTOR signaling pathway, which further promoted the disassociation of Keap1-Nrf2 complex and the phosphorylation of Nrf2. PI3K and mTOR chemical inhibitors abolished Sal A-induced Nrf2 activation while it had no influence on nlrp3 expression. Sal A also inhibited RPE inflammation by inactivating the P2x7r-Pkr-Nlrp3 signaling pathway.

The above results indicate that Sal A protects RPE from lipid oxidative damage and chronic inflammation through up-regulating Nrf2 and inactivating the P2x7r-Pkr-Nlrp3 signaling pathway.

Salvianolic acid A (SAA) is an active phenolic acid derived from Salvia miltiorrhiza Bunge (Danshen). To explore whether SAA has a therapeutic effect against inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), an acute colitis model was induced in rats by administering 3% dextran sodium sulphate (DSS) for one week. SAA in doses of 4 and 8 mg/kg/day was given by tail vein injection during DSS administration. Both dosages of SAA ameliorated the colitis symptoms, with decreases observed in the disease activity index. A high dosage of SAA (8 mg/kg/day) promoted a longer colon length and an improved colonic tissue structure, compared with the DSS-treated rats not receiving SAA. SAA dose-dependently decreased colonic gene expression of pro-inflammatory cytokines (IL-1β, MCP-1 and IL-6). Moreover, a high dosage of SAA protected against DSS-induced damage to tight junctions (TJ) in the rats’ colons, by increasing TJ-related gene expression (ZO-1 and occuldin). Finally, using 16S rRNA phylogenetic sequencing, we found that SAA modulated gut microbiota imbalance during colitis by increasing the gut microbial diversity as well as selectively promoting some probiotic populations, including Akkermansia spp. Our study suggests that SAA is a promising candidate for the treatment of IBD.
