One of the biggest problems of modern medicine is a bacteria destruction of bone tissues as it is extremely difficult to treat. Even antibiotics can hardly work. Concerning all this, it is very important to find new methods of bone diseases treatment. The leading world scientists have already discovered that the leaf extract of Saussurea Controversa significantly reduces inflammation and increases immunoreactivity in a biological model of osteomyelitis.

Moreover, the researchers of the Immanuel Kant Baltic Federal University have also acknowledged the fact that the native people of the Far East, Siberia, Tibet and Mongolia widely use different species of Saussurea in order to cure diseases of liver, kidneys, gastrointestinal tract and locomotor apparatus.

The researchers of IKBFU selected components from Saussurea Controversa and decoded their chemical formulas to determine their ability to influence stem cells outside the human body.

The study article Chelidonic Acid and Its Derivatives from Saussurea Controversa: Isolation, Structural Elucidation and Influence on the Osteogenic Differentiation of Multipotent Mesenchymal Stromal Cells In Vitro was published in National Center for Biotechnology Information Search database.
