5. Luteolin Anti-Fibrosis

Luteolin is anti-fibrosis, it can relieve liver fibrosis, and lower the content of HYP and MDA in hepatic tissue, and it can inhibit the proliferation of Hepatic stellate cells (HSC) and synthesis of collagen out of body, further it can improve histopathological changes of pulmonary fibrosis caused by bleomycins, lower lung weight index, also it can inhibit the increasing of MDA and HYP, thus promote the apoptosis of human embryonic lung fibroblasts.

6. Luteolin Anti-Fertility And Hormones

Luteolin is anti fertility and hormone, it has the remarkable activity of dose-dependent anti implantation, it can increase the weight and diameter of uterus and endometrial thickness and its the height of epithelial cells after oral taking. It has the estrogen-like effect when used alone, while it functions as anti-estrogen when taken together with ethinylestradiol.
