The HCEE significantly inhibited the survival of HeLa cells without affecting the viability of normal human umbilical vein endothelial cells and induced apoptosis in HeLa cells in a dose-dependent manner. Results showed Hedychium coronarium exerts antiproliferative and apoptotic effects against HeLa cells and has potential for use against cervical cancer. (36)
Cytotoxic Labdane Diterpenes/ / Anticancer / Rhizomes:
Study of hexane extract of rhizomes isolated two new labdane diterpenes along with 10 known metabolites. The cytotoxic isolates were studied against the A-549 (lung cancer), SK-N-SH (human neuroblastoma), MCF-7 (breast cancer), and HeLa (cervical cancer) cell lines. (37)
Labdane Diterpenes / Cancer Chemoprevention / Rhizomes:
Study of rhizomes isolated three labdane diterpenes, isocoronarin D (1), methoxycoronarin D (2), ethoxycoronarin D (3) and benzoyl eugenol (4). Chemopreventive potential was evaluated using in vitro assays i.e. inhibition of NF-kB, COX-1 and -2, and induction of antioxidant response element (ARE) and inhibition of cell proliferation. Results support the chemopreventive potential of H coronarium rhizome constituents (38)
Glucose Lowering Effect / Leaves:
Study evaluated the effect of an aqueous extract of H. coronarium leaves on type 2 diabetes in two types of animal models: streptozotocin (STZ)-induced T2DM in Wistar rats and C57BKSdb/db mice. Results showed improved glucose tolerance in both models. There was significant improvement of lipid profile in the STZ-induced T2DM model. Islet ß-cells lesions were decreased after extract treatment. Insulin level increased and aldosterone level decreased. Results suggest HC is a natural product worth exploring for its effect on T2DM. (39)
Antibacterial / Rhizome Oils:
Study of rhizome oil of H. coronarium yielded 46 compounds representing 98.7% of the oil identified. Main components were linalool (29.3%), limonene (20.3%), trans-meta-mentha,2,2diene (12.0%), y-terpinene (8.9%) and 10-epi-y-eudismol (3.8%).

Silver Nanoparticles / Synergism with Copepods Against Zika and Dengue Vector Ae. aegypti:
Study assessed the toxicity of H. coronarium rhizome extract and H. coronarium-synthesized AgNPs against larvae and pupae of the dengue vector, Aedes aegypti, as well as against adults of non-target copepod Mesocyclops formosanus. Control of A. aegypti larval population was attempted using the predatory copepod M. formosanus in synergy with H. coronarium-synthesized AgNPs. In the presence of both copepods and nano-larvicides high control of larval population was obtained. Study highlighted the potential of synergizing copepod-based control programs with highly effective green-nano larvicides in the fight against dengue and Zika virus vectors. (42)
Monoterpene Synthases Involved in Floral Scent: Flowers emit a fresh and inviting scent attributed to monoterpenes present in the profile of floral volatiles. Study yielded two novel terpene synthase (TPS) genes viz. HcTPS7 and HcTPS8, and used to study the biosynthesis of monoterpenes in H. coronarium. Results showed the HcTPS7 and HcTPS8 genes were highly expressed in petals and sepals, and expression levels in petals were positively correlated with the emission patterns of sabinene and linalool, respectively, during flower development. (43)
Antitubercular / New Labdane-Type Diterpenes / Rhizome: Study isolated two new labdane-type diterpenes, hedychicoronarin A (1) and hedychicoronarin B (2), and ten known compounds (3-12) from the rhizome of H. coronarium. Compounds (+)-coronarin A (3) and coronarin D methyl ester (4) exhibited antitubercular activities with MICs of 80 and 50 µg/mL, respectively, against Mycobacterium tuberculosis H37Rv in vitro. (44)
Silver Nanoparticles / Antibacterial / Rhizome: Study reports on the green synthesis of silver nanoparticles using rhizome extract of H. coronarium as capping, reducing, and stabilizing agent.
