Hepatitis C virus inhibitory hydrolysable tannins from the fruits of Terminalia chebulaFitoterapia 2014 Dec;99:117-23. doi: 10.1016/j.fitote.2014.09.014. Epub 2014 Sep 28.
Two new hydrolysable tannins, chebumeinin A (1) and chebumeinin B (2), together with eight known related compounds (3-10), were isolated from the fruits of Terminalia chebula. The new compounds were structurally determined by analysis of their spectroscopic data and the known compounds characterized by comparing their spectroscopic data with literature values. All isolates were evaluated by an HCV protease inhibition assay, and some compounds were found to be potently active.[Link to the scientific study]
