Abstract:
Ferula is a genus of endemic plants in Mediterranean area and central Asia which many species have been traditionally used in folk medicine. Ferula szowitsiana is one of the ethnomedicinal plants in the genus that is mostly used in Azerbaijan and neighbouring countries such as Iran, Turkey and Afghanistan. Many scientific studies have been carried out and a wide range of pharmacological effects of the plant have been reported, including anti-cancer, anti-oxidant, anti-inflammation to anti-microbial and anti-biotic modulation activities. Notably, more than 200 compounds consisting of essential oils, coumarins, phenylpropanoid derivative and steroidal compounds have been identified from different parts of the plant and have been evaluated for a variety of biological activities. Despite this, a comprehensive review for this plant is still lacking. The aim of this review is to cover and summarize the biological activities of the active compounds derived from F. szowitsiana.
