Curator's Comment:: https://www.drugs.com/international/phloroglucinol.html | http://www.druginfosys.com/drug.aspx?drugcode=963&type=1 | https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17439513 | https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9136853

Phloroglucinol is an organic compound that is used in the synthesis of pharmaceuticals and explosives. Phloroglucinol is a phenol derivative with antispasmodic properties that is used primarily as a laboratory reagent. The mechanism of action is most likely based on the direct inhibition of the voltage-dependent calcium channels of smooth muscle; however, the modulation of prostaglandin or nitric oxide release has also been suggested. Although it has long been used in clinical practice as an antispasmodic for painful urogenital and gastrointestinal conditions, in an early study on anesthetized rats, phloroglucinol was found to be inactive toward the contraction of the duodenum, ileum and colon. Similarly, in anesthetized dogs, phloroglucinol plus trimethyl-phloroglucinol failed to antagonize acetylcholine-induced contraction of the colon. In parallel with animal studies, phloroglucinol plus trimethyl-phloroglucinol had no clear effects in humans on ascending and sigmoid colon hypermotility evoked by neostigmine. However in Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) patients iv phloroglucinol effectively reduced postprandial rectosigmoid motility increases after a test meal, compared to placebo. In another study of IBS patients, phloroglucinol inhibited phasic contractions provoked by intrarectally injected glycerol, but it did not modify colonic tone. In an open-label study of 100 IBS patients selected according to the Rome II criteria, po 50 mg phloroglucinol was administered three times daily for two months. The 68 patients who completed the study reported significant improvement in abdominal pain, frequency of stools per day, urgency, passage of mucus per the rectum, sense of incomplete defecation and bloating. Nevertheless, straining was unchanged. Further, a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial examined the effects of phloroglucinol/trimethylphloroglucinol (62.2 mg P plus 80 mg TMP three times daily) or placebo for 7 d in 307 IBS patients diagnosed using the Rome II criteria. The relative decrease in pain intensity and the responder rate were significantly higher in the P/TMP-treated group, compared to the placebo-treated group. Further, the treatment effect persisted up to the 7th day in a higher percentage of patients treated with P/TMP than in those treated with placebo.

Chinese hamster lung fibroblasts (V79-4) cells were used for activity evaluation. Image analysis for the generation of intracellular ROS was achieved by seeding cells on a cover-slip loaded six well plate at 2Ч105 cells/well. Sixteen hours after plating, cells were treated with phloroglucinol at a concentration of 10mkg/ml. One hour following phloroglucinol treatment, plate was exposed to 10 Gy of gamma-rays. Twenty-four hours later, 100mkM DCF-DA was added to each well and cells were incubated for an additional 30 min at 37 C. After washing with PBS, the stained cells were mounted onto a microscope slide in mounting medium (DAKO, Carpinteria, CA, USA). Microscopic images were collected using Laser Scanning Microscope 5 PASCAL (Carl Zeiss, Jena, Germany) on a confocal microscope. In addition, cells were treated with phloroglucinol at 10mkg/ml and were exposed to gamma-rays radiation 1 h later. Cells were incubated for an additional 24 h at 37 ◦C. After addition of 25mkM of DCF-DA solution, the fluorescence signal of 2’,7’ dichlorofluorescein was detected using a Perkin Elmer LS-5B spectrofluorometer and a flow cytometer
