Abstract

Turmeric rhizome has been used for centuries to combat inflammation, including joint inflammation in arthritis. However, scientific evidence of efficacy and mechanism of action and a systematic evaluation of the biological activity of turmeric components for the treatment of inflammation have been lacking. This review will summarize the results of recently published studies that we have conducted to address each of these specific areas of inquiry using an animal model of rheumatoid arthritis.
