< em > L. Cucurbita pepo < /em > modulates contact dermatitis in depressed rats through downregulation of proinflammatory cytokines and upregulation of antioxidant status
CONCLUSIONS: The pumpkin extract, applied topically in CD associated with depression, could be an alternative as well as preventive approach in treating CD. Anti-inflammatory and antioxidants activity of pumpkin is a proposed mechanism behind this effect. Further studies to test this effect on volunteer patients of CD are recommended.PMID:35645683 | PMC:PMC9131963 | DOI:10.5114/ada.2021.103459 (Source: Advances in Dermatology and Allergology)
