Radix Angelicae Sinensis (RAS) decoction can markedly inhibit acute and chronic inflammation caused by various phlogistic agents. Similar effects are equally seen in adrenalectomized rats. RAS can also suppress the biosynthesis or release of prostaglandin E2 in inflamed tissues induced by carrageenan, as well as significantly decrease the hemolytic activity of complement bypass, but shows no effect on the inflammation caused by histamine.
