    • Anti-Leukemic / Antiviral: In a study of hot water extracts of five Taiwanese medicinal plants were evaluated for in vitro anti-leukemic and antiviral activities. Blumea lacera exhibited broad mild to moderate anti-leukemic activity activity. It also suppressed the replication of HSV-1 and HSV-2, with IC50s below 100 µg/mL. It showed no cytotoxic effects at concentration that inhibited HSV infection. (32)
    • Anti-Pyretic / Antinociceptive / Neuropharmacological: Study evaluated the in vivo anti-pyretic, neuropharmacological activity, and acute toxicity effects of leaf extracts of B. lacera in Swiss albino mice. In-vivo antipyretic testing using brewer's yeast method showed significant reduction in temperature, with diclofenac as standard. In gastrointestinal motility test, results showed significant reduction of GI motility when compared to standard loperamide. In in vivo antinociceptive testing, statistically significant (p<0.001, p<0.02, p<0.05) results were found when compared to standard diclofenac. None of the extracts showed any significant in-vivo acute toxicity in mice. (34)
    • Antidiabetic: Study evaluated the antidiabetic activities of extracts of aerial parts of Blumea lacera in streptozotocin induced hyperglycemic rats. Results showed marked antidiabetic activity. The methanol extract at dose of 400 mg/kg showed significant dose dependent antidabetic effects without destruction and restored the structure of liver and pancreas of hyperglycemic rats. (35) Study of methanolic extract of B. lacera in alloxan-induced diabetic rats showed restoration of blood glucose to normal levels. (36)
    • Ulcerative Colitis: Study evaluated the protective potential of standardized hydroalcoholic extract of Blumea lacera in acetic acid-induced ulcerative colitis (UC). Pretreatment with doses of 100 and 200 mg/kg significantly ameliorated the acetic acid-induced colonic injury, which paralleled with biochemical and histopathological examinations. Of 15 selected bioactive compounds, 5-hydroxy-3methyl-3,6,7,4-tetramethoxy flavones, lachnophyllic acid and d-fenchone exhibited better drug likeness property with higher docking score. The protective effect may be due to the synergistic effect of identified bioactive compounds via inhibition of key targets of inflammation. (37)
    • Anticancer / Melanoma Cell Line / Antioxidant / Leaves: Study evaluated the anticancer and antioxidant properties of crude leaf extracts from B. lacera. Results showed antioxidant activity by various assays. Anticancer activity was showed by the anti-migratory effect of the extract against the melanoma cell line. (38)
