A new antiinflammatory agent identified as 8-[C-β-D-[2-O-(E)- cinnamoyl]glucopyranosyl]-2[(R)-2-hydroxypropyl]-7-methoxy-5- methylchromone (1) has been isolated from Aloe barbadensis Miller. At a dose of 200 μg/mouse ear, 1 exhibited topical antiinflammatory activity equivalent to 200 μg/ear of hydrocortisone. There was no reduction in thymus weight caused by treatment with 1 for any of the doses tested, while 200 μg/ear of hydrocortisone resulted in a 50% decrease in thymus weight.
