Phytocompounds in pigeon pea offer therapeutic potential against multiple diseases

In this study, researchers from Kerala Agricultural University in India investigated the potential of pigeon pea (Cajanus cajan), a plant used in traditional Chinese medicine, against chronic inflammatory diseases, malaria, measles, and sickle cell disease. Their investigation of the molecular mechanisms behind its reported therapeutic activities was published in the journal Food Science and Human Wellness....

Abstract Dyslipidemia has been described in sickle cell anemia (SCA) but its association with increased disease severity is unknown. Here, we examined 55 children and adolescents with SCA as well as 41 healthy controls to test the association between the lipid profiles in peripheral blood and markers of hemolysis, inflammation, endothelial function, and SCA-related clinical outcomes. SCA patients exhibited lower levels of total cholesterol (P
