Background: Acute lung inflammation (ALI) is a serious health condition that causes severe pulmonary distress, tissue loss, and ultimately leads to death of the patient. Previously, theantagonisticrole of flavonoids has been extensively studied with respect to inflammation in cancer. Inflammatory reaction targeted during the lung cancer therapy. Aims and Objectives: In this study, the chemoprotective effect of resveratrol and its of mechanism of action against the Lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced lung inflammation was investigated. Materials and Methods: In this in vitro study, we performed experiments using RAW 264.7 cells. LPS was used to induce inflammation in the lungs of Swiss Wistar rats that were randomly divided into different groups. The rats were treated with resveratrol in a dose-dependent manner. The lung tissue and dry/wet weight of lung tissue was estimated. The antioxidant activity and anti-inflammatory parameters were also estimated. Results: According to results, resveratrol significantly reduced the secretion of pro-inflammatory cytokines including interleukin (IL)-1β, IL-4, IL-6, tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α), IL-18, IL-10, and antioxidant parameters viz., glutathione (GSH), malondialdehyde (MDA), and superoxide dismutase (SOD), respectively. Resveratrol significantly (P<0.001) reduced the weight of lung tissue and dry/wet of lung tissue at dose-dependent manner. Conclusion: In summary, resveratrol plays the role of a chemo-protective agent against the LPS-induced lung inflammation via anti-inflammatory and antioxidant mechanism.
