The clinical application of Scutellaria has a history of more than 2000 years. Now it is still an important medicine for antipyretics, keeping a water balance, and clearing away metabolic waste, which is called antibiotics in traditional Chinese medicine.
 
1. Antibacterial
 
Scutellaria has a strong inhibitory effect on microorganisms, and its decoction has a broad-spectrum antibacterial effect and does not produce drug resistance. In addition, it can also resist a variety of fungi, viruses, mycoplasma, chlamydia, and other microorganisms. Scutellaria and its active components inhibit the growth of bacteria, fungi, and chlamydia, which may be related to the inhibition of ATP synthetase, the formation of the microbial membrane, and the inhibition of the expression of some proteins.
 
Modern research shows that baicalin has a very good inhibitory effect on bacteria such as E.coli, Micrococcus, Staphylococcus hominis, Staphylococcus epidermidis, fungi such as Candida albicans and other microorganisms. The combination of baicalein and baicalin with gentamicin, fluconazole and β - lactam antibiotics will produce a synergistic effect and enhance the antibacterial effect.
 
2. Anti-inflammatory and analgesic
 
The anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects are reflected in that baicalin can significantly affect the various functions of leukocytes, so it has a strong inhibitory effect on a variety of acute and chronic inflammatory reactions. Baicalin and baicalein in Scutellaria can produce antipyretic and anti-inflammatory effects by interfering with arachidonic acid metabolic pathway and inhibiting the activity of cytokines.
