Neurobehavioural Effects: Study evaluated the effects of ethanolic extracts of Nuclea latifolia and Emilia sonchifolia on anxiety, fear, and locomotion in mice infected with Plasmodium berghei berghei. Results showed a decrease in fear and anxiety in the parasitized mice while increasing locomotion and exploratory activity. Findings suggest the potential for isolating psychoactive ingredients that could be of use in the management of convulsive neurologic disorders. (26)
• Inhibition of Pulmonary Metastasis: Study evaluated the efficacy of Emilia sonchifolia in three different experimental murine models of prophylaxis, simultaneous, and after tumor development. Whole plant extract was administered intraperitoneally in C57BL/6 mice. E. sonchifolia significantly inhibited pulmonary tumor formation and increased the life span of animals. Results demonstrated the anti-metastatic potential of the herb justifying its conventional use in traditional medicine. (28)
• Immunomodulatory Effect: Effect on humoral immune response was evaluated by hemagglutinating antibody (HA) titer and plaque forming cell (PFC) assay, blastogenic assays of lymphoid organs and levels of cytokines. E. sonchifolia significantly enhanced the total WBC count, bone marrow cellularity, a-esterase and weight of lymphoid organs (p<0.001). Effect on humoral response was evident from enhanced HA titer and increased number of PFCs (p<0.001). Augmentation of cell-mediated immune response was evidenced by enhanced killing activity of CTLs and enhanced production of IL-2 and IFN-y. Results showed E. sonchifolia to be a potent immune response modulator. (29)
• Antiangiogenic Efficacy on Tumor Specific Neovessel Formation: Formation of new blood vessels from preexisting vasculature is part of tumor formation, invasion, and metastasis. Study evaluated the effect of an active fraction from E. sonchifolia for its anti-inflammatory and antitumor effects, on the inhibition of tumor-specific angiogenesis. Results using both in vivo and in vitro angiogenic models showed the inhibitory effect of AFES on tumor-specific neovessel formation. (30)
• Neuroprotective / Antioxidant / Flowers: Study of ethanol extract of tassel flower isolated senecionine-N-oxide (1), kaempferol 3-O-rutinoside (2) and protocatechuic acid (3). The compounds were evaluated for neuroprotective properties using antioxidant, cytoprotective, anti-inflammatory and acetycholinesterase inhibitory assays.

(31)
• Wound Healing Effect: Study of an aqueous extract of E. sonchifolia showed good wound healing effect in male albino Wistar rats using incision and excision wound models. (32)
• Hepatotoxic Pyrrolizidine Alkaloids: Study investigated the hepatotoxic and tumorigenic pyrrolizidine alkaloids (PAs) contained in E. sonchifolia. Thirteen PAs of two types were identified: (1) Otonecine bases: otosenine, petasitenine, desacetyldoronine, neosenkirkine, adonifoline, senkirkine, crotafoline, acetylotosenine, acetylpetasitenin, doronine and acetylsenkirkine; (2) retronecine bases: seneciphylline and senecionine. Senkirkine was considered a major PA ranging from 0.2 to 23.9 ?g/g dry herb. Total content of toxic PA ranged from 1.3 to 31.2 ?g/g dry herb were all higher than level recommended by Belgium and Germany not to be used clinically. The samples were collected through Taiwan's four seasons. Summer samples yielded the highest PA concentrations considered significant threat to human health and safety concern when consuming ES for herbal treatment. (33)
• Antiproliferative / Antioxidant / Flavonoids / Human Cancer Cells: Study evaluated an isolated flavonoid fraction from whole plant for antioxidant property and the ability of the plant to inhibit proliferation of human cancer cells. Result showed treatment of cancer cells with the flavonoid fraction showed morphological changes characteristic of apoptosis. (34)
• Cytotoxicity / Polysaccharides / Cervical Cancer Cell Line: Study evaluated the cytotoxicity activities of polysaccharides (PS) isolated from E. sonchifolia against human cervical cancer cell lines (HeLa). The PS decreased the viability of HeLa cells with IC50 of 40 µg/ml for HeLa cells in a concentration dependent manner. Increased intracellular ROS (reactive oxygen species) level was the suggested mechanism of action. (35)

Results showed protection of the pancreas against ethanol induced damage as evidenced by histopathological studies and normalization of biochemical parameters. (36)
• Inhibition of Pro-Inflammatory Cytokines and Inducible Nitric Oxide / Aerial Parts: Study in rodents evaluated the anti-inflammatory effects of E. sonchifolia methanol/methylene extract of aerial parts on levels of IL-1ß and TNF-
α after an intraperitoneal lipopolysaccharide challenge (1 mg/kg). Results showed alleviation of inflammatory responses probably through the suppression of pro-inflammatory mediators and cytokines such as IL-1ß, TNF-α, and iNO. (37)
• Thrombolytic / Clot Lysis Activity / Leaves: Study evaluated the methanolic extract of leaves of Emilia sonchifolia, E. chinensis, E. alba, and W. chinensis for thrombolytic activity. E. sonchifolia exhibited 28.71% clot lysis activity with reference of streptokinase (71.43%) and water (2.96%). (see constituents above) (39)
y-Humulene-Induced Apoptosis in Human Colorectal Cancer HT29 Cells: y-Humulene, a component from E. sonchifolia, significantly decreased cell viability of human colorectal cancer HT29 cells in a dose-dependent manner with IC50 53.67 ± 2.99 µM . Study suggests y-humulene induced apoptotic cell death in HT29 cells through DR5-mediated caspase-8 and -3-dependent signaling pathways. (40)
