The fraction of quaternary benzophen-anthridine alkaloids from roots of Chelidonium majus L., containing chelerythrme and sanguinarme, has been tested for its antiinflammatory activity. On the basis of its low toxicity, high antiinflammatory activity and antimicrobial action, it is recommended for medical use in the treatment of oral inflammatory processes.
