PURPOSE:AsarumHeterotropoides (Xi Xin) is a traditional Chinese medicine commonly used for the treatment of chronic cough. Volatile components are known to be potent cough modulators. However, the reports of polysaccharides isolated from A.Heterotropoides on cough are unknown. This study aimed to evaluate the antitussive, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects of Asarum polysaccharide (PSA) in a guinea pig model for chronic cough.
