Known Toxicity or Adverse Reactions

Notes on identification:


Glycyrrhiza pallidiflora contains the isoflavonoid calycosin which showed the best potency against human T-cell leukaemia cells MT-4 (CTD50, 2.9 μM); Pterocarpans medicarpin and homopterocarpin exhibited anticancer activity in micromolar range with selectivity on the human monocyte cells U-937. The isoflavan (3R)-vestitol (16) was highly selective on the lymphoblastoid leukaemia cells CEM-13 and was more active than the drug doxorubicin.[1]
