Ether, methanol and aqueous extracts of Centipeda minima (Compositae) harbs were found to have significant anti-allergy activities in passive cutaneous anaphylaxis (PCA) test. Three flavonoids, two sesquiterpene lactones and an amide were isolated from this plant material as inhibitors to induced histamine release from mast cells. The sesquiterpenes were identified as isobutyroylplenolin and senecioylplenolin by spectral investigations. The flavonoids and sesquiterpenes exhibited significant anti-allergy activity in PCA test with p.o. administration.
