Autoimmune encephalomyelitis is a chronic autoimmune disease caused by immune-mediated sterile inflammatory response and demyelination in the central nervous system (CNS). High-mobility group box protein 1 (HMGB1) is a ubiquitous nuclear protein, which can be released from damaged cells and induce proinflammatory responses in autoimmune encephalomyelitis. Glycyrrhizin (GL), a major constituent of licorice root, can inhibit the proinflammatory bioactivities of HMGB1. In this article, we bring some insight into the effects of GL on CNS inflammatory diseases and discuss the therapeutic potential of GL in autoimmune encephalomyelitis in the future.
