BACKGROUND: Maqui berry (Aristotelia chilensis) has been reported to have anti-glycation, anti-inflammation, lipogenesis-inhibiting activities highly related to its anti-oxidation function, but practical efficacy studies on immunological mechanisms for atopic dermatitis, have not been reported yet.

OBJECTIVE: This study investigated the immune regulation mechanism of Aristotelia chilensis water extract (ACWE) related to atopic-like dermatitis METHODS: Antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects of ACWE was assayed. Atopy inhibitory effect was evaluated using in vitro cell study and in vivo 2,4-dinitrochlorobenzene (DNCB)-induced mouse atopic-like dermatitis model.

RESULTS: ACWE has good antioxidant activities, and atopic indications were improved in ACWE group in DNCB-induced atopic-like dermatitis model of BALB/c mice. In spleen cells from mice, ACWE increased interferon-gamma (IFN-γ) levels, and decreased interleukin-4 (IL-4) levels compared with the DNCB control.

CONCLUSION: ACWE was efficacious for atopic dermatitis which indicates that ACWE might have potential as an agent for atopic dermatitis.
