Derris scandens Benth - Thaoval Priang - เถาวัลย์เปรียง

is a plant of the family FABACEAE and is characterized by a high content of flavonoids and isoflavonoids. To the Siamese, today the Thais, this plant has beens known in traditional medicine since prehistoric times and found specifically in the treatment of joint and muscle discomfort. In recent years this plant attracted more and more interest, supported by intensive scientific research - both pharmacological - as well as in clinical studies - in the treatment of arthritic type of pain.
The dried leaves and flowers function surprisingly well, even in our present times and continue to relieve joint and muscle problems. Especially in the field of inflammatory degenerative joints and their muscles, and thus also in pain relief, Derris scandens is an excellent means for people who do not want to resort to steroids and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.

Derris scandens Benth. J. Linn from the family LEGUMINOSAE-Papilionoideae
(FABACEAE) is an evergreen tropical plant, where in the TTM leaves or flower petals formed butterfly-like can be used. Parts of the bark and the trunk are not used.

In the TTM (Thai Traditional Medicine) Derris scandens has been known for generations for its analgesic and anti-inflammatory action in the field of rheumatic and arthritic types of health issues. However, only in recent scientific research results of the actual context of the mechanism of action of this plant has it become known what the consumption of Derris scandens causes and what benefit this brings to the treatment of degenerative ailments, including high blood pressure, as well as in the general treatment of pain, side effect free for the affected people. To understand this, we need to go back a bit:

Abstract of the effect of Derris scandens
Derris scandens mainly includes isoflavones and isoflavonoids, like many other plants, especially those which are used in hormone replacement therapy's (phyto-hormones) wide application. What is unique to Derris scandens, is, that it includes six new, previously unknown -diprenyl-isoflavones and Derris-flavone A-F, which have a complex influence on the occurrence of pain as a whole and also on the inflammatory process, which ultimately is the cause of the pain triggers
In pharmacy all pain killers act on the cyclooxygenase inhibition, as NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, have long been known. The older, diclofenac, are therefore COX 1 inhibitor, the side effects being mainly gastrointestinal discomfort and severe damage to the gastric mucosa in prolonged medication. As a protective measure a H2 blocker, or more recently Omeprazole, was used for reducing the side effects and make them more tolerable. These substances, of course, also have side effects.
Then the COX 2 inhibitors came on the market without the gastrointestinal side effects, but unfortunately with far more dangerous, namely cardiovascular side effects, which so far have not been fully illuminated. So to say, hazardous time bombs, but indispensable from the treatment regimen of patients in pain, because pain in arthritic and rheumatic circles is not treated causally. Especially in inflammatory thrust we need effective means which bring the inflammation and of course the pain to subside .
As the most powerful means we also have the glucocorticoids, actually endogenous substances from the adrenal cortex, known as cortisone, used for example in rheumatoid arthritis. The synthetic forms such as dexamethasone and prednisolone are a blessing for many people, at high and permanent substitution but fraught with terrible side effects.

So let's stick with the non-steroidal substances. Here also ASS such as aspirin, paracetamol and other pharmaceuticals have their effect on the inflammatory and thus painful events and all act similar via receptors that influence these events. These are mainly the influence on prostaglandin E2 production, the inhibition of the so-called eicosanoid biosynthesis, inhibition proteinkynase etc.
Derris scandens includes five isoflavone glycosides, named derriscandenoside AE (1-5)together with ten known compounds of isoflavones, two benzoic acid derivatives, three Glukosy isoflavones and four Rhamnosy-glukosyles. Fifteen known compounds confirmed by laboratory tests and clinical trials, show why Derris scandens is able to act

anti-inflammatory and analgesic,
but also immune modulating and blood pressure regulating,
but most of all without side effects
and suitable to be used as a long-term medication in people who suffer from painful degeneration of the muscle and musculoskeletal system

Derris scandens is not toxic at any dose. It is a scavenger of free radicals as well as an excellent antioxidant. Derris scandens is a gift of nature from the tropics of Thailand for people suffering from pain without having to take into account the risks of steroids and NSAIDs in long-term medication.

Indication: chronic arthritis in thrust, muscle pain, pain of various etiologies, rheumatism, high blood pressure, extremely high immune stimulant, thereby improving the general condition, natural bactericidal effect.

A  clinical  study  was  carried  out  to  compare  the  efficacy  and  side  effects  between  the  50 per  cent  ethanol  extract  of  Derris  scandens (Roxb.)  Benth  and  a  nonsteroidal  anti-inflammatory  drug  Diclofenac  for  the  treatment of  two  groups  of  patients  with  lower  back  pain. A  group  of  37  patients  received  a  200 mg-capsule  of  Derris scandens  extract  orally  three  times  a  day  for  seven  days  and  the  other  group  of  33  patients  received  the 25 mg  Diclofenac  tablet  orally  three  times  a  day  for  seven  days. The  results  show  only  the  finding  of  a  significant  decrease  in  white  blood  cell  count  within  the  normal  range  on day  7  among  patients  in  the  D.scandens-treated  group, while  there  was  not  even  the  slightest  change  in  the  Diclofenac-treated  group ; patients  in  both  groups  experienced  no  side  effects  from  the  treatment. The  efficacy  of  treatment, the  levels  of  pain, as  measured  by  the  Visual  Analog  Scale, in  both  groups  were  significantly  lower on  days 3  and 7  as  compared  with  pretreatment  baseline  levels, and  the  results  of  pain  alleviation  were  not  different  significantly  between  the  two  treatment  groups. The  study  concluded  that  the  benefit  of  treatment  of  patients  with  low  back  pain  with  the  50  per  cent  ethanol  extract  of  D.scandens  at  a  dose  of  600  mg/ day  and  with  Diclofenac  at  a  dose  of  75   mg/ day  for  seven  days  were  comparable.
